Tabletop Tuesday~and Blog Break to Spend with a Surprise Visitor!

I got a most wonderful surprise for my birthday! 
My Mom flew out and came a knocking at my door totally unexpectedly!   
Can you believe it?!!
 I'm sooo happy to see her,  it has been sooo long!!
She will be here for about a week or so, and were going to be busy having

But I just had to share the news with you, before a take a blogging break,
cuz you know how much I've been missing her!

I also wanted to share this little Fall tabletop vignette with you first...
I found this silver plated dish at G/W, it was heavily tarnished but I was sure it was a going to be a treasure once I cleaned and polished it up! 

My eyes opened wide like a kid in a candy store as I polished it to reveal the beautiful shiny design beneath all that tarnish!!

Update... for those of you interested, I use Wright's Silver Cream
to polish my silver. It comes with a little sponge inside,
and apparently its also good for a lot of other uses too!
You can go "here"  to find out.

I added this wonderful smelling harvest potpourri (Ross) and pumpkin spice candles(Kohls) on this set of my sterling candlesticks, and favorite Fitz and Floyd rooster all on top this colorful orange and green plaid napkin to really make it pop! 

I'm linking up with Marty's
Stop by there if you can for some creative inspiration!!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!
I'm sure I will!!

Hugs to you!  Sherri:)

How exciting Sherri. I love your mom's style, coming and surprising you like that. That would be such a shock to see her there at your door! I hope you two have the time of your life, and when she goes to leave, you can surprise her and hide her ticket so she has to stay even longer!!!hehe
Your tabletop for Fall is beautiful. I am coveting your silver tray.
Oh, and I found my clippers...right where you hid them! I love it when you come by for a visit dear friend.
hugs to you...and your mom...

What a great surprise. I can't imagine anything better! I hope you two have a ball.

Love your vignette and the tray is beautiful. How did you get it so shiny? What so you use on your silver? I have tried a few on my silver plate flatware and it is so stubborn!

Hope you are having a great week!

Now see, if I had procrastinated like I usually do your mom would have been there in time to make the pillow shams for you! Good thing I was on the ball and you had to get out that sewing machine yourself!

I'm sure you and your mom are going to have a wonderful time together! Love the new silver plated GW goodie. This year the leaves turned and dropped quickly so the trees are already bare here in Michigan.
