Just a short post today. I got up yesterday and the sun was shining so beautifully in the living room, I had to take some shots to share. We are having 80 degree weather this week but by the weekend it will drop like a stone. It is sometimes difficult to photograph as different angles make it look different.
This is a perfect example of what I mean, it was much brighter than this shows.
I am enjoying this coffee table vignette but am thinking of changing it.
I really like the zebra rug in here. I love a touch of animal print in any room.
I now have 3 leopard glass pumpkins in here;)
This pumpkin pillow cover came from Pottery Barn outlet last year.
I placed a garland around the base of my large blue and white jar.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave me a comment to say hello.
Saturday night we hosted our dinner group. There are usually 8 of us but one couple could not make it. We had a really nice evening of appetizers and drinks then for dinner I made crab lasagna, a salad with home made dressing and bread. Dessert was a pumpkin dump cake that was so easy to make and DELICIOUS!!! I will share the recipes in another post. I found these pretty pumpkin plates at Walmart this year! I originally only bought 2 but then decided to use them for dinner group so got 4 more:)
I did a very simple centerpiece and removed it before dinner.
The salad bowl was purchased last year. Also from Walmart.
It is even decorated inside!
My leaf wine glasses came from Kirklands several years ago.
There are 3 different colored leaves on the glasses and the green is so pretty with the dishes.
Since I only have 4 pace settings of this green handled flatware I also used a pearl handled green flatware at the table also. You can see that in the first few photos above.
Let's light the candles!
These beautiful napkin rings were purchased at Christmas Tree Shops 2 years ago.
So pretty with these dishes.
I used a white tablecloth, a rust colored charger, green dinner plate and the pumpkin salad/dessert plate.
I used clear salad bowls so we could use the plates for dessert.
Like I said, I will share the recipes in another post. I am so sorry I didn't get a shot of the lasagna. I had it at a friends house and had never made it but it turned out very good!!!
Thanks so much for your visit. Leave me a comment, they make my day:)
I love decorating this space every Fall! I don't do "the softer side of Fall" I LOVE the colors of Fall! However, there are no bright oranges, I try to stick to the rusts, browns etc. As many of you know, Joe built me this hutch. We saw a larger one in Lancaster county and he asked if I would like something like that. Of course!!! So he made a sketch on a scrap of paper, came home and made it for me!!! This was when we lived in the old house.
This little cart usually does stay here. I just added some faux Fall berries to the greens. Then I flanked that with 2 pumpkins.
I'll show you each shelf
I love adding garlands to the shelves too.
The top of the hutch usually has a lantern and the bottle and demijohn.
For Fall I placed some Fall stems in the bottle.
I love this pear made from wood chips.
The pumpkin dish came from where I used to work many years ago.
The 2 shelf units on each side of the room get dressed for the seasons too.
Thanks so much for your visit. I hope you all missed the ravages of hurricane Matthew and my heart aches for the many people who did not. Have a beautiful day everyone.
I like to have a seasonal arrangement in this spot on the kitchen bar. I found this urn last year and knew I would make a Fall arrangement in it. I didn't spend anything for the contents, I had everything in my stash! Hope you like it:)
Ferns, ivy, fall leaves, are the base for the arrangement.
Pods are the focal point here.
I love this pottery bowl so filled it with acorns at the base of the arrangement.
I love this urn.
Chinese lanterns, seed stems and berry branches
I am enjoying this arrangement in the kitchen this year.
