1. The state of being obsessed with someone or something.
2. An idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person's mind.

Hello, my name is Julie and I have a pinterest obsession. Which is one of the things that makes Wednesday one of my favorite blogging days! I love sharing my new favorite things with you. The hardest part is picking a theme to go with each week. I know not everyone sees the need for a theme, but I'm that kind of girl, the organized and obsessive compulsive kind. Entertaining is this week's theme, I love it!

My family is a bunch of doodlers, they would love the chalkboard place mats. Plus, I love the clean look of them on the table, for when my cousins aren't around to doodle all over them.

I'm a huge fan of bite sized desserts. There is something about caramel that just screams fall to me. I'm pretty excited about making a batch or two this coming weekend.

I love these tables. With bench seating on one side, it is great for when there are kids around. And then the distressed look of the wood is definitely my style.

I love burlap for fall this year. I love the rustic edge that it adds to an otherwise crisp setup.

More chalkboard stuff. This time contact paper to label food items and show how they should be eaten. Love this idea - I think I'll try it for this weekend's celebration.

Love this table, and really the lighting of this picture, it just makes me want to be at the dinner party.

I would LOVE to have a space like this. Now I only have to make 3 billion more dollars before I can have it. *sigh....

I'm heading over to the vintage apple to check out other people's pins.  I can't wait to see what you're pinning this week!!

First time by your blog, so hi! Also, I love the fact that I'm not the only one that needs a theme. OCD girls unite!

Great pins, BTW. LOVE the chalkboard idea and identifying what to eat with what-- such a good idea!
