Floral Bounty



Hello, Dear Ones.
I wanted to bring you into my dining room today to show you the centerpiece on my table.


 I was in Micheal's a few weeks back and found this cornucopia for $4.99!
You know I had to have it.

 I know traditionally cornucopias are filled with fruit 
but I wanted to walk on the wild side and filled mine with flowers!
I'm so talented like that you know! ;)

 We all know that sunflowers just scream "Fallness"!
So I poked some in.
Now you know I'm using my fauxs. 
Love my fauxs and my fauxs love me.
You've heard it before and you'll probably hear it again! :)

I've added some cat tails ~ puddy widdows! :)
As you can tell, they're faux.
But I love them and they love me! 
You can tell, can't you?

 Mums and berries finished out the doo.
Can cornucopias have doos?
Well, you bet your styling gel they can! :)

 Then I poked down this pair of wooden candlesticks and placed (notice I didn't say poked)
orange candles all Falled up on top.

 Oh, I've used my runner I made a while back.
I actually made it to use in the Springtime but I think she works for Falltime too, don't you?
She's a pretty creamy toile with two pinked edged ruffles.

Okie dokie!
There you have my Fallen dining room table and I hope you like it.



Pin It


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)


I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Count Your Blessings


When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.
Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.
When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings money cannot buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.
So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be discouraged, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.

~ sung by all thankful ones

  4. You are the sweetest thing! I love your post today. Your table setting is so lovely, you sure did a great job arranging all your flowers in the cornucopia, BEAUTIFUL! I didn't hear you say "poked" when you placed the candle holders on the table...(I laughed a little)but loved it!!! Hope the rest of your week is lovely and can't wait to see what is next here at your place. Did I say I love it here? I really do! Shari!

  16. Hi Shelia,
    Very festive indeed. I love faux and faux loves me too (giggle). Cornucopia's always remind me of thanksgiving when I was little girl. My Auntie would always have a cornucopia on the table full of nuts that we would have to crack. It was a fun time as a kid cracking nuts..LOL
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

  34. Hi Shelia!

    First of all I love your new header. Looks SO professional!

    Your table is looking very fallish and welcoming with your fauxs. I have a lot of faux flowers and plants too. No need to water but oh... the dust :( but I am sure that you are a much better housekeeper.
