Redecorating with County Fair



I forgot to take pictures yesterday of our Thanksgiving celebration. It was my turn to host this year and I got the chance to cook my first Thanksgiving turkey! Luckily everything turned out beautifully and we had a lovely time with our fellow American friends from this area. There were nine of us all together.

I decided before Thanksgiving that it was time to redecorate my table and pillows. Out with the Amy Butler Nigella and in with Denyse Schmidt's County Fair. I love this. The colors go so nicely with what I have in the house and also the style suits as well. Those bench seats take me a while to do though, very tedious getting the measurement right and trying to make them look as professional as I can. Do you see that window behind the couch? That window is going to be a thing of the past soon and hopefully I will be able to switch the couches around and then think of something to hang on the wall in that spot. I have been thinking a long time what to put there. Any ideas???

All is happening very quickly right now with our house building project. All the walls are up, next week the windows will go in and the following week the brick laying starts! I am so excited. I so look forward to having the extra space.

Great tablecloth and pillows!!! I recently decided that a new throw, some pillows, and a new tablecloth for the dining room would be all I need to update/freshen up the living room/dining room. An easy way to change up a room and add some splashes of color. I just need to make the time....

I love your table. I need benches like that! Will have to have a look around to see if I can find some.

The tablecloth is so unique! Did you freehand the design or use a pattern? I'd love to make something like that but wouldn't have the first idea of where to begin!

love love love this tablecloth! Must do one too! (although, I can't get my hands on any of those fabrics!) :)
