Cottage-Vintage style Black and White Dining Room Tour..

We continue with Autumn Bliss...are you tired yet?  I haven't run out of things to blog about...in fact...my mind is going 100 miles an hour with things I should and need to be doing! Getting things in order isn't hard once you are on a roll!
I do have a secret...on Mondays I call it my power cleaning days...and yes I work in an office too. But Mondays I work like crazy, put the fast music on and work as fast as I can for a couple of hours tackling the mess...
Then the rest of the week I can ease up on myself so I have room and time to blog and sew...etc.

I found this piece of fabric I bought a few years back at Joann's fabric and things just tumbled into place!
 Spray painted this wooden (folk art style originally) house black, at Halloween I fill it with little lights.

 Can you say paper plates? I found these at WalMart! Yay!

 Little dessert table all ready to go...and boy have  I been making cupcakes...those are to come!

 Yes I had to make this...I love candy corn which is really a vegetable...right? And we have to eat vegetables right?

Joining in with Susan, Melissa, for these wonderful parties!

Debbie, you have such a big ol' creative bone that runs through your body...you come up with some of the cutest stuff!!! That little sign is so much fun (and yes, candy corn IS a vegetable!) and the little house reminds me of the houses I would imagine while reading the Nancy Drew mystery books!! The fabric on the table is beautiful! You are so blessed to be able to sew...the possibilities are endless to what you can create! Have a wonderful week!

I'm always amazed at the wonderful and elegant choices in paper plates, but until now didn't have the courage to think about using them. You've done a bang-up job on this tablescape and side board - it's really a WOW!

Good heavens, everything is just beautiful. I am such a fan of black & white, and you have outdone yourself. I love the muted tones of your decorations. Your room is so perfect for the holiday. And, aren't you nice to "fess up" about the paper plates--I never would have known!
