Tuesday's Topics ~ Table Top and Tip of the Day

The new garland...
We found it at Hobby Lobby. They were 50% off and there were many styles to choose from. We liked this the best...with pine cones and berries.


The two pieces that we purchased are the perfect length for our table...criss-crossed on our existing table runner...


With little treasures tucked inside...



I'm really liking this look...It sure beats the piles of newspapers, mail, bills, jackets, bags, projects, papers, books, magazines, etc...



For Tuesday's Tip of the Day...
I hope you have had a chance to visit Robin at her blog Bittersweet Punkin. Her recipe for Cheater Spice Cookies is absolutely delicious. It calls for Pumpkin Pie Spice. And since I didn't have any in my pantry, I decided to make my own...


Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/8tsp. cloves
And while you're checking out her cookies,
sign up for her sweet vintage give-away.
You won't be disappointed!

I love the garland idea!!!! Better then the cats that tend to reside on my nice dining room table...maybe that would deter them?
