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!!!

Pumpkin Tablescape

Hi! It's been a while for me. I'm tablescaping today over at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch. Be sure to visit all the other beautiful tables over there.
This is my pumpkin tablescape.

I've had these pumpkin soup bowls for several years.

I found these metal charges at an antique shop for $2. a piece. Dinnerware is
"Windsor" by Pamela Gladding.

I got the leaf plates at Hudson's.

I also found these glasses at Dollar Tree. I think they will be good for Thanksgiving because they say "Family" and "Friends"

I'm using some old, green checked napkins and napkin rings.

Flowers for the centerpiece compliments of Dollar Tree. :)

I'm using my new S&P's from TJ Maxx

My rooster wanted to get in on the action.

The hutch is decorated for fall, too.

I found these green leaf plate and bowls today at the Maxx.

Candle light time.

Thanks for visiting today. I loved having you!!!

Gone With The Wind Party

I'm joining Nikki over at The Scarlett Rose Garden for the Gone With The Wind party! Come on over to see who all is coming and what everybody is wearing!

I've been shopping for the occasion. First, a girl's gotta have the perfect under pinnings for that perfect dress.

What about this hat? A little bit too much? Yeah, I agree. :)

I bought these pantelettes, but I don't know..................Rhett says none of the women in Pari are wearing them anymore.............. :)

OK. I made my decision. It's this blue one. :)

Here's a little Scarlett that wants to come to the party, too.

These paper dolls are currently up for bid on Ebay. Looks like the whole gang is there....even the Tarleton twins. I just gotta have these!

I'm planning a trip to Atlanta next week, and I hope we get to eat at Aunt Pitty Pat's Porch.

While in Atlanta, I hope to visit the Gone With The Wind Museum in Marietta, GA. They have this ORIGINAL dress that Vivien Leigh wore in the movie. Only 7 original costumes have survived, and this is one of them.

Here are two more Gone With The Wind sites that I found interesting. There is a museum in Jefferson, TX and also a B&B. Here's the link
Also a great online site is

Here's some pics of Vivien that I have rarely seen.

Why did they cut this scene from the movie I wonder. She looks so pretty in this dress.

I have always wanted some earrings like Scarlett's. She wore them several times in the movie.

Here they are again. She also wore them in the "Mill" scene, but I couldn't find a picture. :(

And another thing....................why in the world would she choose this

over this ?????????? Woo Hoooo! What a hunk! :) I have never understood that one. I was into my pillow all night trying to figure it out. :)

I've always thought they should have cast Errol Flynn as Ashley Wilkes. Then it might have been a hard decision for me.

Well I'm off to join the party. Thanks for coming by. I loved having you! :)
