~The New "Tuscan Home" Magazine Is Out Now...And We're In It!~

Hi everyone! Hope you're having a great weekend! We sure are! You may recall that Author/Editor/Stylist Extraordinaire, Fifi O'Neill, came to photograph our home, back in June. (You can read that post here.) Well, the new publication is on newsstands now!

The magazine is called, "Tuscan Home"; and it is filled with gorgeous, glossy pages full of Tuscan inspiration! I actually had no idea that it was out! My BFF, Donna, picked it up at the grocery store, to read while getting her hair done. Imagine her surprise when she stumbled upon the spread of our home! She immediately called me; and I grabbed my keys to run out in search of a few! It was so surreal to see our home in print! We have a 12-page spread that starts on page 116. These are just a few of my favorite images...

As you can see, not much of our decor was changed, with the exception of a few fresh flowers and fruit, for props. Fifi also gathered up some of my extra pillows and throws to add texture and additional pops of color.

You have seen many of these rooms, here, on the blog; and there are a couple of rooms that I don't think I've shared before.

I will be forever grateful to Fifi for selecting our home for her premier publication! She and photographer, Mark Lohman, were a joy to work with!

Hopefully, you will be able to pick up a copy at a store near you!

Thanks so much for sharing this experience with me!

~Pottery Barn Tablescape in Charleston~

While going through some of the photos of our recent trip to Charleston, I came across a couple of photos that Dear Hubby took; and I decided to share them with you today.

While enjoying the shopping mecca that is King Street, we had to make a stop at Pottery Barn. I was immediately drawn to this gorgeous tablescape and asked Dear Hubby to take a pic. I love the warm, rich colors; and the white dinnerware, in the background, just pops! I had found my inspiration for my Fall kitchen decor!

Here is a closer look, at the table. The turkey plates are on my list of things to get, in the next couple of weeks; and I love this mix of cream, white and green pumpkins.

I've been busy with lots of projects around the house; but, I just wanted to pop in to share these photos. Hopefully, you've found some inspiration for your Fall tablescapes.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Decorating!
