Now this cake stand is really pretty.   Would you believe that it is made from clear plastic chinet dishes?  I know!  Simple.  From evite.

No source, but all you need is an old fork and a pair of pliers.   A few bends and turns and you have a unique and very pretty photo holder!

Really pretty napkins eh?   As easy as buying some dark coloured plain napkins (or sewing some) and using a bleach pen and the eraser end of a pencil dipped in bleach. From Craft by Photo.  Such a simple idea!

How to bleach pine cones.   From  E-how.  A bowl of these sitting on the coffee table would be quite pretty I think.

And I do too!!


  1. Good morning Marie. I hope you have a simply marvellous day. I love the thigns you have shared.

  2. Thanks Suzan! I hope you have a fabulous one also! xo

  3. Hi, Marie! Gosh, Friday already... how did that happen?! LOL... LOVE that ripple blanket--the picot edging on that one is especially pretty. Lovely foot scrub. I make most all of all my "beauty" extras-it sure saves, and using natural ingredients has helped my skin which was getting dry and dull. Natural & homemade all the way! ;o) LOVE the bleached out-designed napkins! And those bleached pine cones are amazingly beautiful... How do folks come up with these things?! So many sweet Christmas ideas... It's not far away now, is Christmas! Wishing you all there a very happy weekend now. At church this week they're be extra much for All Saints & All Souls, so very much looking forward to that. :o) ((LOVE & BIG HUGS))

  4. While many are glad it's Friday and the end of a work week, I'm wondering where the week went to. Another fast one for sure. Hope you have a fantastic Friday !

  5. Don't know about your computer but my one certainly objects to giving me help to get into your page each I started on Wednesday !! Don't ask me where Thursday went .. I switched of came on again...almost instantly and here I am on Friday ! Almost my favourite day as you bring us such neat things to look at think about...these forks are clever !! Also these snow scenes. What clever people they are who think of these things...and you for finding them....another wet and windy day down here, not going out at all...still not feeling 100%.....sad news about my dear friend Joy she has heard yesterday that she has slow cell lung cancer...a very invasive cancer...there is little they can do, but she is going to have three weeks of chemo starting today...your prayers are much appreciated....

  6. Marie;)
    I just wrapped 2 gifts w/ wee trucks and a tree on top:)

    We steer towards the same things and Jacques would love your meal.

  7. The weeks are just flying by Tracy, you are so right about that! I hope you enjoy the extra church services! Love and big hugs back! xoxo

    Thanks Pam! You have a lovely weekend! xoxo

    I don't know what's up with that Sybil! Crazy! I am so sorry to hear about Joy. I will definitely be keeping her in my deepest prayers. and You too. I am sure it's very disheartening. YOU have had a lot of loss over the past few years. xoxo

    Oh, I bet the gifts are so cute with that Monique! I was thinking that Jacques would love these meals! xoxo


Your comments mean the world to me, and while I may not be able to address each one individually, each one is important to me and each one counts. Thanks so much!
