September Happenings

September was a busy month for me. Friday, several bloggers from Mississippi had a meeting in Jackson. It was at the "Corner Bakery" and was hosted by Lady Katherine of Lady Katherine Tea Room. Here she is setting her pretty table for us. Katherine is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.

Look at this gorgeous table she set for us. She grew the gourds herself.

My camera was acting strange, so I didn't get many pics of the girls. :(

She had a Halloween "Happy" for each of us with our names on it. The cute pumpkin had different kinds of tea in it. How sweet. Another blogger, Christine from Christine's Home and Travel Adventures gave us each a bundle of fudge from Natchez, MS. Yummy!

Earlier this month, I got to go to Atlanta. We went to several antique shops, and I took pics.

I really liked this girl's booth. It was all decorated for Fall, and I liked the way she did it.

I like to take pics, so I can remember how to do it myself. :)

This is where I bought my chargers that I used in my last tablescape. Click here to see them. I just love them.

I liked these pillows, but didn't get them.

Like the hat? I was thinking "Kentucky Derby" maybe.

Lisa thinks it used to belong to the "Queen Mum"

We got to eat at Aunt Pitty Pat's Porch. I always wanted to. It was pretty fancy.

The door you see leads to the sunroom.

Thanks for stopping by. I loved having you!!!

Hope you are having a great day!

I so enjoyed your post. I love your mantle. And, then...I saw the white slipcovers. Okay, now I'm just plain downright jealous! :-)

Craving white in Vermont, Nancy
