Late Summer Tablescape *plus* Introducing Finlay's Mom, Mustang Sally

Tuesday, August 9, 2016

Happy Tuesday, My Lovelies!  It's a gray, rainy summer's day here in Central Alabama.  We are busy getting our eldest daughter settled at home for a few brief months while she completes her graduate school externship, and packing for our youngest daughter's first semester in college.  I'll post her adorable dorm decor once she's moved-in at the end of the month.

The house (especially upstairs) is such a mess that I haven't been doing much "fluffing," but I did put together a simple tablescape for a Farmer's Market Salad.

I spy with my little eye two Westies on the table.  And guess what?  We now have two Westies!

The Commitments
"Mustang Sally"

We adopted Finlay's mama, Mustang Sally!  You first met Mustang Sally here.  Sally is so much fun and has so much personality.

We love these pups so much!

Both have plenty of Westitude!

Until next time...

  1. RJ, I know you are one busy mom with both girls home with their own busy schedules. But, I know that makes you very happy! Oh, I just realized you will be an empty nester this fall, that will take some time adjusting. Love the pretty tablescape using beautiful creamy lace and roses and the cute little Westies! Finlay and Mustang Sally I know are great pals. I'm so happy your decided to adopt her and bring her home!

  2. Lots of fun times ahead for the Art @ Home family. ;-)
    The newest family member is just as adorable as her little Finlay.

  3. RJ I just want to hug your adorable Westies. We look forward to your daughters cute dorm room reveal. Oh and I love the salt and pepper shakers.

  4. Hi Ricki Jill,
    The Westies are too adorable. Congrats on adopting Mustang Sally. Can't wait to see the dorm room reveal.
    Happy rest of the week.

  5. Your pooches are so cute, they will keep you good company when your nest empties! So fun to have them on your pretty table too :)

  6. I am so excited for the dorm room reveal.
    Love the pooches too. Sweet as can be.
    xx oo

  7. Your tablescape is lovely, but those two pups are just the cutest! Did they actually know each other....we aren't "dog people," so I don't know how that works.

    Happy Weekend!
