About Bev

In 2011, I retired after twenty-nine years of teaching. A few months ago I stumbled upon a couple of tablescaping blogs which led me to even more tablescaping blogs. The more I drooled over these lovely photographs, the more I decided that I could do this also. Tablescaping seemed the perfect hobby for me to combine my love of dishes, antiques, and collectibles with my need for a creative outlet for my retirement. I began tablescaping in October of 2011 using mainly what I had and only purchased a few inexpensive items from Wal Mart, Dollar General, and Fred’s (yes, I am also cheap). Later I added items from antique malls, flea markets, and yard sales. I am always on the lookout for great things to be used in tablescapes. My husband is manager of an office supply store. We have one handsome son who is in camping ministry and his beautiful wife is a teacher. The following picture is David, me, Russell, and Callie in front of their house at Camp Lake Stephens.
Someday they will give us grandchildren, but for now we have our grand dog Wendell, a yellow lab.
I also love to read, especially Christian fiction. I am a ten-year colon cancer suvivor. My husband and I love the outdoors and like to fish, hike, and camp, although now that we are older, we prefer camping in cabins. Thanks for reading my blog.

    By chance, a family member sent me this page…and I was blown away at the similarity in your husband;s appearance compared to me. I could be his identical twin ( although I know that to be impossible ) Contact my e-mail and I will share an image. This is really amazing.

    Bev, You don’t have an email on your blog. I was wondering if you would email me so I could email you back. My email is on my blog page.

    Would you like to sell a couple of your jade moon dishes? I broke a few of mine, and need a complete set

    Bev, Do you by chance still have the Jade Moon set? If so how much and is it complete? And how much do you want for it? I have it and would like more. Thanks, Lynn
