Christmas Farmhouse Table and Giveaway

Christmas Farmhouse Table and Giveaway
I recently shared my Farmhouse Vintage Christmas mantel where I used vintage farmhouse pieces and mentioned that I had made another purchase from Community West Upscale and Resale,  well here it is all adorable, distressed and  crackled finish.  The only thing I had to do with it was reupholster the chairs.  I had some table cloth fabric left over  from when I did my storage bench in the master bedroom.   I really think it is a perfect match and compliments the table.

I have to tell you I really think after all these years of Mr. OMT and I  trying to come to a style we both love... this is it!  I am really loving it and having so much fun redoing and redecorating.

Using an antique sewing machine drawer decorated with a sprig of cypress was the perfect piece to hold plates along with a white pitcher to hold the twine silverware that was done last year.

Ok I have to admit, I couldn't resist having one of these for myself along with this adorable cupcake stand that is 7" diameter and 4" tall. 

I love how they can be mixed and matched creating and using them for different uses.  Here I used it for the cornbread that was served with a nice hot bowl of Chili... One of my favorite dinners on a cold night.  Do you have cornbread or crackers with your Chili?

Farmhouse Vintage Christmas Mantel

Farmhouse Vintage Christmas Mantel
Hello Friends, I hope you all had a great weekend.  As I sit here in my favorite spot on the patio, yes I am still able to sit in my favorite spot, being outside  is where  I get to enjoy the cool and crisp air with a nice cup of hot coffee and enjoy the peace and quiet before the day begins with everyone else in the house.

Actually,  my day starts with the dogs, Lily my yellow lab seems to have an early alarm clock, she wakes me up pretty early with  her morning routine... it goes a little something like this....A paw against my head to wake me up, once I am up we head down the stairs to let her and Bella (our chocolate lab) out back...back inside where  she waits for me to make coffee.  When that is done we head out so she can get the paper...back in for her treat (Bella gets one too even though Lily does all the work) ...get their food and then she let's me get on with my morning.  Believe me if I forget any one of these steps...she is sure to let me know by tugging and pulling my sweat jacket.

Recently, I was invited by Christine from Rustic and Refined to join in on a Christmas Series along with a group of other great bloggers to bring in Christmas with a series of Christmas inspiration from Decor, how-to's, tablescapes  and a lot more to inspire you.

While I talked about favorite spots, today I would like to share another spot we (dogs too) spend a lot of time and that is in the family room.
Over the years I have done many styles of Christmas decor and this year I am going a little vintage farmhouse.

Vintage Kitchen utensils  used to create Christmas Vignette at One More Time

I found these vintage strainers (can you see them on the mantel?) at a local thrift shop called Community West that I absolutely love and most of the items used this year are from there.   The two vintage strainers are what inspired me to go with a vintage farmhouse style along with another purchase made which I will be sharing soon.

When I purchased these two strainers the were not intended  to be used for my Christmas mantel, but as I looked at them,  I saw Christmas trees,  (see them now?) by turing them upside down and placing them on silver candlesticks.

To go along with the farmhouse style,  I pulled out my antique grinder and vintage sifter and used them as the main centerpiece to nest some  silver metallic  birds .  The two vintage pieces were embellished  with some cypress, pinecones and faux snowballs and finished off with some silver glitter Christmas sayings.  A frosted glass Christmas platter was placed behind the the birds.

As I mentioned the  vintage strainer Christmas trees  were tuned upside down  and placed on some brushed silver candle sticks.  A small star tree topper was added with some hot glue and the bottoms were embellished with a small circle mirrors...

After the main pieces where made and a couple of mercury glass candle holders were placed, the mantel was dressed with faux snow covered cypress along with some more Christmas floral  pics.

A small white tree was placed in the mailbox I recently refinished and decorated with  silver metal ribbon along with some small ornaments in silvers and whites.

The fireplace screen got a wreath of cypress along with a silver polk a dot ribbon to coordinate and complete the circle mirrors

Silver Tea and coffee set Christmas Vignette at One More Time

The vintage Window coffee table was decorated in silvers and blues,  using my silver tea and coffee set one filled with hydrangeas and pine brach greenery an the other with  a blue tassel.  A silver bowl was filled with blue and white ornaments with some pine greenery.  The sugar bowl was filled with small disco balls and faux snow was added to the botttom.

Quick and Simple Ideas for a Fall Setting

Quick and Simple Ideas for a Fall Setting

There is something about this time of season leaving me feeling like I am in a huge whirlwind of Fall and Christmas all at the same time...  While Fall is in the family room,  Christmas is in the formal dining room, while the kitchen table is filled with Christmas projects that  need to get done ...whew... so it's like, where do I start and finish???    Do you have these similar scenarios going on in your home?  

 Today I am thrilled  to be back and sharing some quick and simple ideas on how to bring some last minute Fall ideas over at All Things Heart and Home. With just a few simple painted Dollar store pumpkins.

Last month I shared some other Fall Ideas over at All Things Heart and Home if you didn't get a chance to see those you can see them here .

While you are here,  I thought I would share a couple of other ideas on Fall Mantels...Yes I did my mantle twice this year,  not because I didn't like the first one, but with the color changes made in the family room the mantle was redone as well...

Here is the newest one   

Natural Fall Mantle at One More Time

Here are few ways you can change up any neutral setting

While decorating my home and using neutrals in my basic furniture and wall colors,  it allows me to change it up and not feel like I am not stuck with just one color, it took work within my home.

I can  incorporate colors any time by just adding a few pops to the neutrals to create a whole different look and still  use some of the same items in different ways.   Although most of my changes come from items within my home,  when I want to change things up a bit I simply  just replace/remove or add similar items.

For both mantel settings I used the same brushed silver trays and Mercury candle holders and recreated around those to create two different looks.

Here is the first one I did.

and here is the last one I did...I can see an easy transformation into Christmas done up similar to this by just replacing the pumpkins with some Christmas items...

Game On ... Tailgate Birthday Party

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of SOLO® Brand Products for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
Game On ... Tailgate Birthday Party
This past weekend we celebrated my Dad's birthday.  When deciding what kind of party to  throw him the first thing that came to mind was a Tailgate party.   My Dad  is a huge Football fan  although he is a Rams fan he doesn't miss any of the other football games,  so a tailgate party  was the perfect way to celebrate his birthday.
When planning a tailgate party and to be able to actually enjoy the game, I like to make it as easy and stress free as I can when it comes to the food and snacks.  
Here is one tailgate meal I like to serve that everyone  loves.  This meal is grilled to perfection in their own little pouches,  simply grill and serve  on a sturdy throw away plate.  I like using  SOLO plates mainly for their sturdiness, but I am also loving their new squared  plates, bowls and cups.   
Grilled Mushroom Burgers Veggie Packs
These packets are almost a meal in themselves. 
1package  lean ground beef patties
1 pkg shredded Cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
1tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 medium green onions, chopped (2 tablespoons)
1teaspoon seasoned salt
2 medium potatoes, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups mushrooms
1     fresh green beans 
1    red bell pepper thinly sliced
1     green pepper thinly sliced
1     yellow bell pepper  thinly sliced 


  • 1Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Spray half of one side of four 18x12-inch sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil with cooking spray.
  • 2Mix Worcestershire sauce,  green onions and 1 teaspoon seasoned salt. 
  • 3Place potatoes on sprayed sides of foil sheets. Top with beef patty, carrots, tomatoes and sliced onions; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt. Fold foil over patties and vegetables so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for circulation and expansion.
  • 4Cover and grill packets 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 17 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Place packets on SOLO plates.  fold back foil and enjoy!
Because SOLO products are more than just cups, SOLO also offers Paper, Heavy Duty and Premium strength products like these squared plates and bowls which I used as a serving tray for spinach dip and bread.
Low stress is the key to any get-together for me...tailgating especially. Using disposable dishes bringing delicious food make it easy to enjoy the fun without fussing over who's going to do the dishes and makes clean up a breeze.
Popcorn is a must at every game...not to mention,  it is my Dad's favorite snack!  Placing them in SOLO cups makes a perfect individual  way to serve  the popcorn.
After all the football games were over, a few games of washer were played,  while the  rest of us relaxed and enjoyed each others company by the fire.   This was the perfect day spent with family and friends  celebrating another year with Dad!

Last Minute Quick and Easy Fall Wreath

Last Minute Quick and Easy Fall Wreath

Hi Everyone,    I am  back to share another quick and easy last minute Fall project  with you all .  When I asked Rose from Fine Craft Guild (where I contribute to once a month), what she would like me to contribute  this month she said she would like to see a Fall wreath.

Fall Hydrangea Cork Wreath

Fall Hydrangea Cork Wreath at One More Time

With Thanksgiving getting closer, it's still not to late to create this  Fall wreath to welcome your guest or if you are not hosting Thanksgiving this year, how about giving one as a hostess gift?  Seriously, once I gathered my supplies it took me less than 15 minutes to complete this wreath.  For more on how this Fall wreath was created  you can go to Fine Craft Guild for a full tutorial.

Using round cork pieces and faux cork ribbon to create a fall Wreath at One More Time

Another idea for this wreath:  This wreath could be easily changed  up.   After you are done with it, why not recycle it???  This could make a nice Christmas teacher gift.   The Teacher could actually use it to pin notes on (since the round circles are cork) or maybe pin pictures of their class, by replacing the hydrangeas with another type of flower... I think sunflowers would be nice..  what do you think?
