Give Thanks!

Thanksgiving 2015- Welcome TablescapeHappy Monday!  Just a few more days until T-bird arrives (Thanksgiving) and then it will be the push for all things Christmas.  Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas as much as the next girl, but it’s too early!  Let’s celebrate the harvest, the bounty and the friendships.  So, in the tradition of sharing, today I invite you to my Thanksgiving table decked out with pumpkins, Indian corn and luminaries.  I especially loved Finishing Touches new harvest Indian Corn decor items, you need to check them out!  As most of my loyal readers know, my nickname is bedroom eyes because I enjoy styling boudoirs but my favorite thing to decorate in both worlds is creating tablescapes.  I probably own more plates, placemats, napkin rings and mini salt/pepper shakers than shoes!  A well styled table defines the dinner and sets the mood for the party.  I also wanted to showcase my kitchen, complete with a turkey feast!  I hope I can find some free time in my schedule to take additional snaps of my autumn bedrooms and outdoor decor.  Until then, wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Thanksgiving Bounty


FT Tree of Life LR & Pumkpin Pie Kitchen Framed

In just 5 days Americans celebrate Thanksgiving with food, friends, family and football on the menu.  Grocery stores are brimming with shoppers planning their holiday feast.  My favorite part of the holiday season are the baked goods.  I love the smell of fresh-baked cookies, pies and cakes in the house.

I wanted to honor this special American holiday in Second Life by creating a Thanksgiving great room complete with living space and kitchen using a sunroom.  I mentioned in my last post to rethink the expected and I did that by transforming a sunporch into a great room.  I often feel that sunrooms are overlooked and only styled as breakfast nooks or porches, so if you have the space, as I did, make your sunroom a usable space that continues to celebrate your life for many generations.

The perfect autumn collection to mark the harvest season is Finishing Touches Tree of Life grouping available at 50% off at The Designer Warehouse Shopping Event (until Nov 27).  The Tree of Life set includes a tan herringbone sofa and chair, leaf patterned rug, walnut coffee table and side buffet featuring a tree of life design, a brick and wood fireplace, decorative carved wood leaf wall art, and assorted accessories.  A wonderful complement for the living room is the Finishing Touches Pumpkin Pie Kitchen set with baking animations and supplies, decorative gourd kitchen scale, matching walnut hutch with turkey pattern display plates and an apple quilt.  These are lovely pieces for any time of the year with soft soothing tones of cream, tan, brown, bronze, burnt sienna, and rust that will fill your home with warmth and charm.  I wish you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving, enjoy the food (& sweets), the friends and family, and I’ll see you at the Black Friday Sales!
