No Need To Be Smug

I should have know better!  I walking around yesterday feeling all smug.  After L and I had taken down all of the Halloween decoration down I placed them on our dining room table.  I looked over everything with a keen eye.  For many items it was their last year of "service".  It felt so good to get rid of pieces that where not used or past their prime!  Then I reorganized the way they were stored.  After Hubby kindly placed all of the tupperware back in the basement I was feeling good.

Fast forward to this week.  I thought I might take some photos of how I used the magnolia leaves that I purchased at the town farmers market.  Nothing too fancy.

But I noticed a problem when I stepped back....

Every time a holiday is over and I really think that I have gotten everything packed away - that is when I find one rouge item.  Like clock work!!!

And of course the tupperware bin I needed was on the very bottom of a brunch of bins.  Oh well!  It was a good reminder that to get too smug.  No one is perfect...

But Old Bay and sweet potato fries are perfect! Then again, you would be hard pressed to find ANYTHING Old Bay doesn't make perfect!


  1. Haha, this kind of thing ALWAYS happens to me, too! I took down all the decorations this year only to realize that we still (to this minute, unfortunately) have plastic clings of blood spatters on our front door window panes. Um, better take those down before the baby shower this weekend. Embarrassing!

    1. I am sure your house was just perfect for the shower! :)

  2. This is why some of us in the South prefer to leave our Christmas lights up all year long! :-) Thanks Eileen for letting us know we're not the only ones!

  3. I'm actually about to put some fries/old bay in the oven now! I used to only add old bay on crabs/seafood, but my fiance and his sibilings use it on a lot of food like chicken and fries and now I do it all the time!

    I love the table you have in your entryway (or hallway?). It's so pretty!


  4. Yummy fries!

    Your table is very pretty. I really like the magnolia leaves and they are perfect to transition into the holiday season.

    First time stopping by and will look forward to following!

    Have a Thanksgiving!


    1. Thank you for your sweet comments! Wishing I was going to be a guest at your beautiful Thanksgiving table;)
