Home Sweet Home #49

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  Today I am showing off a winter table.  We haven't had a very cold winter.  Yesterday it was 56!  But, I am sure we will have some cold days yet.  So, I just put the chili in the crockpot and put out these pretty dishes.
*Today the internet is acting squirrely so I'm putting this on early.

I love how I have been seeing trophies used in decorating.  I thrifted this one right after the New Year and it is my favorite new find.  If you are interested in how I took this photo shoot.  I give the play by play on my photography blog; The Charm of Home Photography, click the link to view. 

Now, I would like to feature some posts that got my attention from last week's Home Sweet Home!  

Liz at Rose Vignettes showed off her carnations in her monthly party Fresh Cut Friday.

Samara at The Dressing Room had a great kitchen makeover.

Linda at It All Started With Paint had a great entry makeover.

Erin at Just*Grand showed off the evolution of her drapes in her beautiful homes.

Linda at Coastal Charm had a great DIY bathroom makeover.

Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!  It is awesome to have you here!  
I will join these ladies today: 
Inspiration Friday At The Picket Fence
Vintage Inspiration Friday at Common Ground 
Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage
Fridays Unfolded  at Stuff and Nonsense
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
Open House Party at No Minimalist Here

Love the trophy cup, Sherry~ I found one last month, but the silver is being a bear to clean up. Now I don't mind a bit of tarnish, but this thing is black! LOL Thanks for hosting the party. I need to go check out your link to the photography blog. :-)
hugs, Sue

the cape on the corner said...

i love your pinecone dishes, they are so subtle. i bought a set with pinecones on mega clearance last year, and though the colors look subtle on the outside of the box, once home i found they were much less so. oh well. for the price, i can't beat it. i have to do a tablescape with them already.

Your table just looks beautiful! I hadn't seen a trophy used that way and I love it! It certainly looks like winter in Illinois today, doesn't it? Feels like it too! I'll take those 50 somethings days back soon!
