Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley November 15, 2013

Hello friends, what are your weekend plans? I’m staring at a calendar that has absolutely nothing on it (unheard of this time of year) and I intend to take advantage of that emptiness by filling it with something relaxing and fun especially since we’re still enjoying nice weather (no rain yet, it’s bizarre!). How lovely is this outdoor tablescape? Get inspired by several other autumn tablescapes in this gallery

  1. What is the source for the third picture (gray bedroom) in the spaces for reading chairs article? I’d like to know where the window coverings are from. Thanks!

    • That’s a BH&G Image – I’ve seen similar curtains at Overstock Heidi.

  2. I love weekends when nothing is penciled in. But I usually have an hour or so that something needs to be done for my daughter. I really want to go and see the Book Thief this weekend.
    Enjoy your space!

  3. I am having a wonderful time making the wrapping paper wreath to hang on the door of her apartment in Assisted Living. I like to do something different for her for each holiday, and this wreath is going to be great! I am using Christmasy scrapbook paper I had on hand, and each piece is four inches long instead of the gradation. So much fun! Thank you for the tutorial.
