This was taken at Thanksgiving. I have a set of blue transferware turkey plates. I know blue is not the traditional fall colorway of choice but in my home blue is always in fashion as it is my favorite color.
In this shot you can see my blue transferware pictcher and bunny.
You got a glimpe of these in my wall post but a touch of blue transferware here and there. I especially love it against that green!
Here is one of my favorite pieces. I have had him so long I can't even remember where I found him! I do know that I have not seen another like him. My blue transferware rooster. He sits proudly on top of my kitchen cabinets.
Another blue transferware plate on the cabinet tops to balance things out a bit.
Those are the only picture I had on hand to share. So lets talk about next Thursday "Furry Friends Real or Faux". I myself am a lover of doggy decor, bunny decor and more! I know many of you shared with me over the past couple days that you love dogs, cats, horses etc. You see where I am going with this? Of course I have now officially met Lilly in Barbs last Tablescape Tuesday Post so I would be terribly remiss if I left out the real furry friends (all varieties, well okay really lets skip hairy backed hubbys this time around)so of course please share the ones the don't move and of course the ones that do to! This is sure to be fun! Hope everyone enjoys!

A peek as you look up the stairway. I love the way the black plays against the green on green stripe of the wall. You can see my doggy print peeking there on the side wall.
Here are three fun dog prints I picked up some months back. I loved them, although I had no idea what I would do with them. Some of you may have clued into the fact that I love dog stuff!
Hope you have enjoyed my walls for this first Wall Wednesday. To find more participants visit Grits and Glamour http://www.gritsandglamour.blogspot.com/ Next week I will show you a collection that is very special to me and hangs on the wall of my study.

Kathy over at Empty Nester has bestowed upon me this most precious award. I can't tell you how touched I am to receive this. Afterall, us moms, especially those of teens and tweens and well lets face it any age kiddo need all the reassurance we can get as moms. Especially on the days when we feel we are doing a less than stellar job! Oh you know those days I am talking about and for those with age 12 through 18 year olds we are talking weeks not days and maybe even stretching into years!!! Sometimes we forget that our kids will make mistakes and screw up and it is not a reflection of our parenting but part of their journey. Isn't it difficult to remind ourselves that our identity is not theirs? To learn something valuable we must make the mistake that will carry us forward. But as loving mothers it is hard to stand by and watch them go through this growth. Thank You Kathy for giving this to me just when I needed it!
Now it is my great honor to pass this along to those whom I think by the looks of their blogs have a great time with their children. Love and enjoy them. Exhibit unconditionally the qualities of motherhood.

1.) I am an amazon. Yep 6' tall. Most people don't think I am this tall but it is true. I have never had to ask anyone to reach anything for me!
2.) I can decorate anyone elses home with ease but always question and second guess myself on my own home.
3.) I spent an entire Summer with my hippie boyfriend in my early college days living in Cabo San Lucas on the beach in the back of a 1963 VW Bus!!! We drove from San Diego all the way to Cabo San Lucas and spent our days surfing and laying in the sun.
4.) I have a secret desire to own a new VW Beetle convertable in light blue. Not very practical for a family of 5!
5.) I believe in Ghosts and spirits and the paranormal. What ever you want to call it I think it exhists!
6.) While a student there, I unscrewed all the overhead lights at San Diego State University one night with my friend (who is now my husband) and afterwards climbed a 12 foot brick wall and skinny dipped in the SDSU pool. Later we stole a bike off the bike rack and road back to our apartment complex. I don't think the bike was missed because it had no tires on it, just rims. Okay I admit this episode occured after some tequila shots and plenty of beer! Just to clarify this I will absolutely murder my kids if I ever find out they do anything like this!
Now I am tagging the following for a MEme..........

A Special Award from Two Very Special People
Kathy over at Empty Nester http://mbkatc230-emptynester.blogspot.com/ and Barb over at Grits & Glamour http://gritsglamour.blogspot.com/
have so kindly bestowed this award upon me. How kind and thoughtful of you both. Kathy and Barb thanks so much for thinking of me! The purpose of this award is to give it to someone who is showing gratitude or a good attitude ("if life hands you lemons, make lemonade") within their life or blog. I can certainly see why Kathy and Barb received this award and were able to pass it along.
1) put the logo on your blog
2) nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude and/or gratitude.
3) have your 10 pass it along to 10 more!
Once again I find my self challenged to find 10 people to pass this award onto. Not because there are not worthy bloggers out there but rather it is simply because I just may not “know” enough of you yet. But as always I am up for the challenge! So although I may not know you “yet” I visit your blogs and take heart in your words and lovely photos and musings. Although I know I can’t find 20 lovelies to give this to, I am hoping that combining my nominations to the number 10 okay well maybe just 7, is not breaking any award rules. I am thrilled my online blogging family is expanding and that I am able to get to know so many of you. Each one of you contributes to many of my Ahha moments each week. Thank you for continuing to inspire me. Blessings to you all.
Here are a few ladies who I think fit this description very well and so I pass this award on to you…..
and last but certainly not least I am going to bestow this award to my dear friend Yvette. Who although isn’t in the throw of most of our décor and home blogs certainly fits the description of a good attitude in all that she does. http://thewaitforkate.blogspot.com/

graciously stopped by ( as any good southern lady would do) to give me my first award. Now of course I had to be just as gracious and go on over to see what her blog is all about. I urge everyone who has not been there yet to go linger awhile. Thank you to my new friend Belle. Now let me see if I can get this award stuff straight. It being my first and all I certainly hope I get the logistics of passing it on correctly. First the rules....right?
Here are the rules...1) Add the award image to your sidebar.2) Copy and paste the rules and instructions in your post.3) When posting on receiving the award, make sure you include the person who gave you the award and link it back to them.4) Post 5 of your addictions.5) Post 5 winners and link it back to them as well.6) Let your winners know you gave them an award by leaving them a comment on their blog.
Y'all inspire me! My thanks!
