~~~A New Table Vignette!!!~~~

 Hi everyone!!! Boy, have I been BUSY!!! This moving stuff is NOT for sissies:):) I am organizing all over the place. Joe and I have purchased 8 shelving units for the basement storage area and are picking up 3 more tomorrow for my dish room. I will share some of that organizing soon. So, I have been going through some boxes and finding some treasures. I decided to change the morning room table vignette. I have had this tablecloth forever but still love it. So, it is on the table for now. SOON it will be replaced for Christmas!!!!!!!!! I am antsy to GET STARTED:):) I can't wait to see what will fit here and what I can and can not use. My daughter will probably be the recipient of alot of Christmas goodies!!!! So, I made a new arrangement on the table. Then I surrounded it with lots of textural pieces.
 Tucked in some of the dried hydrangeas from the old house.
 This big pine cone ball is a favorite of mine.
 I love the bits of moss tucked in here and there.
 This is a faux pumpkin but I love the stem and the look.
 I elevated it on a small pedestal.
 A pumpkin and berry pick..
 and a garland is wound around everything.

 I so love having the SUN in the morning. It is truly a morning room:)
 another textural ball
 and some pretty flowers, of course

 So that's what is new here. I have a few other new things to show you later. Thanks so much for your visit. I treasure your comments and try to respond to each one. I will be partying here:

Hello there Pinky,

What a pretty new autumn centerpiece. It's very full,lush, rustic, colorful and festive for Autumn....Love it!

Hope you'll settle in soon, moving is such a lot of work to be sure.

(When you are settled and ready, can't wait to see your new dish storage room)!

Cheers, blessings and hugs from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen blog

P.S. ~ (I've been gone so long from being able to take the time and energy in visiting my fellow bloggers and commenting in 'blog-land', that it's great to be back visiting and saying 'hello' once again.
Saying 'hi' to old friends as well as new fellow bloggers!)...

(Also I tried to become your new follower, yet after several failed attempts I decided to try later. A message said my password was not correct. Then, after it accepted it, Blogger just kept dropping my request. Oh well).

It's got to kind of be like an early Christmas opening up all those boxes and deciding where to put everything! I think that's the way I would have to look at it to keep my sanity! I remember going through the whole unpacking thing last year, and I had to make a game out of it to be able to keep going! Your centerpiece looks fantabulous!!!!!! Man, you could just add some Christmas-y elements to that bad boy and extend it right on through the season!!! That giant acorn is fabu!!!!
