Fall-ing slowly and other "stuff"!

Slowing I am decorating for Fall.  Haven't got the tubs out yet...but I have a friend coming for lunch and I had to do a squirrel tablescape.  Last year when packing up my Fall things, I realized I had some acorn and squirrel items...so, a Tablescape was hatched in my brain!!


Hubby bought me the place card holders years ago.....

I used tags for the placecards


I think this looks sorta Artsy!!

Dollar Tree squirrel!


I used my wicker chargers because of the wicker acorn basket.

Cleaned off back patio and found these harvest-y pots at Dollar Tree...Ro, I thought of you cuz I know you love this thing!!


Mom, what are ya doin???  Can we play, or eat?


This is all BJ's fault!!  She told us about that Apple Fritter Bread.  I made French Toast and put some cooked apple slices in some Maple Syrup!  Oh mercy...this was yummy!!

Back to a little decorating...I have had this glass bowl full of glass fruit from Kirklands for years...



Remember how I often say I still love Country decor...well see, I am a schizo decorator too!!

Saw this pillow at Bells or Bealls, whichever you prefer to call it!!  It was on sale for $3.00 and I wanted it...you all don't care if I mix styles do you??

My school desk seemed to be begging for the pillow...at least for now!


This is a QVC arrangement.  I have Christmas, Fall, and Spring.

I put it on the sofa table in the Family room....I think it is so pretty and the candle is battery and with a timer!!  Oh, I love those!!

Hope you all followed me through this post!  Oh, I almost forgot....I am a happy, happy blogger.  Now for you all that have been blogging a short while and have 1000 followers, just overlook me here...but I almost have 300 followers!!!  Little ole me!!  I can barely stand it!!  YEAH!

I am joining Marty for Tabletop Tuesday and......
Show off your cottage Monday at Cielos

Oh, Ceekay, everything looks wonderful. I love your tablescape and you know me too well - I too think artsy fartsy and want to say it, but I try to contain! :) Your AF shot is lovely and those little squirrel place holders are the cutest! Love the little school desk with the gorgeous flowers and little pillow! You've been busy and it all looks very pretty! So glad to know your meds are working! Praising God with you!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Fixed some popcorn, was doin' good, just crusin' thru Blogland and WHAMO..there's your good treat..apples, maple syrup...O HONEY. Looks awesome! :))

Your table looks absolutely adorable..I know your friend loved it all.

Such a great post! Your table and Fall decor is beautiful Ceekay! I love your little squirrels!

CAS said...

Wow, Ceekay, you've been busy. Your tablescapes are just charming -- lovely, warm & inviting. Thank you for your sweet comments about my new lights. My given name is "Carol Ann" so we are close. I would love to get together some time. I know there is quite a large group of us in the Phoenix area, so maybe we can do a lunch some where central. I'm thinking probably a bit later on when the weather gets a bit cooler, so we can dine al fresco -- mid to late October? How does that sound?
:)CAS
PS: I'm bloggy friends with Marty.

I'm lovin your "artsy fartsy fall" Ceekay:) *wink* it looks like a magazine post , seriously. That basket is amazing.

Stacey said...

Ceekay, everything looks beautiful! I love the little squirrels and acorns in your table vignette. Of course, I love the old school desk and the county pillow. I think it's great to mix in styles some. Otherwise, it's boring!

Toni said...

Your table looks gorgeous. Love all the squirrels and acorns. That french toast is making me hungry! Love the butter churn in background - very cool. Have an amazing Sunday.

Vee said...

Everything looks wonderful; some things look especially wonderful...thank you, BJ. Beauty in the home just makes a gal smile, doesn't it?! Congrats on the Followers. I shriek when I get a new one and it usually takes a month before another shows up. Then one drops off. Ha!

Poppy said...

I'm your 299th follower this morning,Ceekay. Now you are one shy of 300...I simply love your fall tablescape and all your pretty vignettes. You have done an absolutely amazing job and I really love it. Adding those acorn touches was simply brilliant... that acorn basket and salt and paper shakers are such darlings... love it!And those brown cut-glass water goblets are just the right touch for this gorgeous tablescape.The french toast looks sooo scrumptious... made me hungry!I'm so glad to know that the meds took away some of your pain and I hope they continue helping you. Thanks so much for your endearing comment on my fall luminaries. Always a pleasure to hear from you.Blessings~Poppy

Rebecca said...

Love it all Miss CeeKay! Fall is my favorite time ever. We went to the OKCity Fair and it was chilly outside. Fab! Not too cold but certainly not hot. LOVED the food, weather and the look and feel of Fall in the air!

I am really proud of you for getting 300 followers, and I really want those squirrels!!! How stinkin' cute are they?!?! And that French Toast with apples, why didn't you invite *us*? We'd have been there in an instant. Thanks for sharing all your fall beauty and I think your Welcome pillow is just perfect :)

Everything is beautiful, inviting, and perfectly "fall!" Love the little squirrel name place holders! They are precious!!! :)

Michele Smith said...

Everything looks so pretty. I love the warm fall colors.

NanaDiana said...

Everything looks great, Ceekay. My friend spent so much on QVC that they had to take out a small mortgage to pay off all the credit cards- No kidding! She is banned from watching it anymore!;>D

That darned BJ would have us all weighing 500 pounds if we followed her diet. Now..you tell me, how does she eat all that and stay so skinny? I really want to shove her in a box sometimes, don't you?;>)

Congratulations on almost 300 followers. I felt that way when I got to 100 and then to 200...and I am slowly growing. People follow YOU because you are SO real...and right there! REAL! Love it- love that you mix/match styles too. Have a great week- xo Diana

Jann Olson said...

Ceekay,
How festive it all looks! I love your little squirrel placecard holders. The entire table is gorgeous! I actually love mixing styles up a bit. The pillow looked so cute on your desk. French toast is my one weakness, lol! Seriously, I have many more than one, but that looks so yummy! Congrats on your number of followers. Happy to be one of them! I know what you mean, I am pleased as punch with my 160 or so.

Adrienne said...

Love your 'new' Fall look. I haven't even started yet. I'm flying to California in a couple of days to lead worship at a district ladies' retreat. Can't start decorating until I get home - but you've inspired me. I'm going to enjoy changing my home for the season.

Very, very pretty "fall-ish-ness", Ceekay! I love it all but especially your little placecards & holder!

I'm still looking for that bread. I couldn't find it at my Super Walmart. :(
