Run. . . .Don't Walk To This China Sale !

If you have a Lenox China Outlet Store near you and you love their Butlers Pantry pattern as much as I do.  Git over there right now girls.

 Yesterday while stopping at the outlet stores I spied a big white tent in the Lenox outlet parking lot.
Now in my mind a tent means Huge savings and I was not disappointed.  I wasn't shopping for china but I have been drooling over this pattern for years.

The tent held great little accent pieces but inside the store was the sale of a lifetime.
All the irregulars were on sale and on top of that another 25% off.  I got 10 dinner plates and 10 Trattoria Accent plates for a bit more then the price of 2 (yes that's right 2) Full Price dinner plates!

I was thunder struck.  I would have bought more but I got the last ones in the dinner plates.  Now there are many other plates in this pattern that coordinate to make a lovely table.  Some have embossed fruit on the borders and some a flower pattern, some are sweet little dots.  Wish they would have had more of the tiny dots.  I would have got them too.

I got what I wanted and am doing a happy dance in the dining room.  Just wanted to let you all know and share the Joy.

As a side note I decorated the plate with Zucchini bread I made from a Betty Crocker recipe that we love.

The little piggy butter dish is from Pottery Barn.

She looks nice with the Butlers Pantry china and the little cream bottle I got antiquing last weekend.

Oh, Did I tell you we have a new kitten?  Can you tell by this picture?  She is into everything.  Loves to play with the silk flowers.  Her name is Jasmine because she is pretty as a flower.

I found her wandering around the back yard near the woods a few months ago.  She was so tiny she fit in the palm of my one hand.  She is growing so quickly and bringing Joy to our lives.  Love kittens.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to let me know if you get to the china sale.
Make it a great day!

Great Lighted Pumpkin Decor

Seems that many of you already have your Autumn Décor finished. 

I love seeing what you have done.
Last week it was in the 80's here and I was loving it

This week the temp is in the 70's.  A bit cooler but still not Fall to me. 

My little Halloween witch was calling so I unpacked her and got busy.

 Then these came in the mail.  Oh Joy!  My lighted wax pumpkins I ordered from QVC.
Do you Q?  I love staying home and doing my shopping at QVC.  They have such unique items.
(They are not paying me for this I am just sharing them because I love them)
The pumpkins came in a set of 4.  I'll share the item # so you can easily find them if you like them too.  (#H200893)  These are called the Toile set.  There were two other designs but this one is sweet.  What do you think?

I mixed them up with other décor I had from years ago.

 Some silk leaves, Indian corn and little white pumpkins I got at the roadside stand and a few brown books to add height.
 Each pumpkin has two AA batteries and a timer.  Each night they come on automatically at the same time and stay lit for 4 hours.

 Our house is a Bi-level and the railing usually installed by the contractor in the entrance way steps was replaced by a half wall that I just love to decorate for all the seasons.  It is in the living room and is also seen in the foyer.

It is almost like decorating a mantle. . .long and narrow.  I kept it simple because we have a new little kitten.  If you  have a kitten you know what I am talking about.  Everything is fair game as a toy!
Anyone know what I have to do to make my picture size larger?  I can't seem to locate where to change it.  

Thanks for stopping by for a visit.  I love reading your comments.
Make it a Great day.
