Thought I'd pop in to participate in Tabletop Tuesday over at A Stroll Thru Life

I would love to tell you that I have some fabulous projects to show you soon, but I have been busy doing some BOOOOOORING stuff....2 tax returns for each of my daughter's, accounting for 2010 rentals for my extended family, getting our tax stuff together for our accountant ... and then there's stuff such as planting seeds in the garden and cleaning up flower beds, trimming trees, etc., that really don't make for good blog posts or photos!
The bookcases for my youngest daughter's room were suppose to be the next project -- 4 WEEKS AGO!!! That keeps getting pushed off. We were sure we'd start them this passed weekend, but we forgot about the fact that we had a neighborhood yard sale to participate in. :(
My mother in law's husband passed away and Mr. F and the girls had to make another trip(they drove) to Chicago. I wasn't feeling well, so I passed on the long trip. My youngest daughter had to fly home so she could leave for Florida for her senior trip.
My oldest daughter has an interview in Hollywood, California this Thursday and we've been making arrangements for that!
Ok, so that's the short version of all that's been happening at Casa Fanatic. I've left a whole bunch of stuff out to save you from being totally bored!

Here's a  couple of tabletops I'm loving these days... 

Found the metal birdie at TJ Maxx a couple of weeks back...

Found these apothecary jars at HomeGoods. The jars came with the decorations on them. Definitely icing on the cake! There will be another high school graduation party in another month at our house and these will look great filled with some colorful candy on the dessert table.

Thanks for stopping by! Leave me a note and I'll stop by and see you too! Sorry that I haven't made the rounds lately!
