Life should be so simple that we could spend every day playing with dishes and visiting with friends and family.

Pink Saturday Find in Antique Store
It's time again for Beverly's Pink Saturday and I am so excited. I have to have my weekly dose of pink! Click on the link above to see all the delightful pink items that were gathered for this week's event. Be sure to leave us all a comment so we will know you were here. We love to blush and turn pink with all the attention.
I spent several hours wandering through some local antique stores looking for inspiration this week and ran across this wonderful pink display and just had to show it to you.
Although the items don't go together, the booth owner had grouped the pretty pink on a top shelf and it was so pinklicious! The ceramic baby booties would make a great centerpiece for a shower and the compote is adorable in a more fuschia color. My favorite is the stand mirror. It would be so precious in a little girl's room.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by today. Make sure that you visit Beverly and all the other lovers of pink gathered on her site today.
Welcome to my blog. I made a Christmas blog to share photos of my holiday decor with some cyber friends. However, I didn't keep posting after the holidays and decided that I liked it as a special tribute to my favorite time of the year. I intended to post on it monthly on Rudolph Day on the 25th of each month, but life got in the way and I haven't posted since December. I am a Christmas nut and really plan and celebrate it all year long.
During the fall I found a holiday forum on Garden Web and started visiting there in addition to my two holiday favorite sites Our Home for the Holidays and Magical Holiday Home. The wonderful people over at GW got me hooked on dishes and tablescapes. I even me a few of the same members on the HGTV decorating forums and have been following their blogs all year.
I finally decided that I wanted to participate in blog land and not just read and look, so here I am. I am hoping to participate in Tablescape Thursday, Foodie Friday, and some of the other fun things I look forward to seeing weekly.
I hope I can figure out Mr. Linky and all the other things that I have been reading about. This is all new to me and I am a bit overwhelmed. But, I am here and ready to have even more fun as a participant.
I love the holidays and decorating for them. I have always been a Christmas nut and have enjoyed the fall and Halloween, but never to an extreme. This year, I decided to host our first Boo Bash, Halloween Cosume Party and have found a new love!
I named this blog Haven Haunt as a contridiction of the term haven, which is where the name of where I live. Since it is for Halloween, I decided on Haven Haunt.
I have been married for 36 years and have one adult daughter and one son, who is in Heaven. We have a Mini Pin dog, named Duke and a Daushund, who just crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this past summer.
