I have to give in - summer is gone - autumn is here - rain, blustery, chilly, cozy in the warm house days are here - so it is time to dig into autumn decorating. Avoiding as much bright orange as I can, I think I've decorated quite well. I don't decorate a lot, but what I do is fun. Let's have a look around.
Come on in - you are always welcome
Sir and Madam Crow are here to greet you
Come in, make yourself comfy, says Sir Crow
Yes indeedy, we've been waiting, Sir just swept the porch for you
See my lovely black bird and punkin
And a cute little birdhouse at Madam's feet. We're glad you came.
The sideboard is set with pretty harvest fruits and vegetables
A mini ghost pumpkin in a pear dish (hmmm is that similar to a partridge in a pear tree?)
Little pitcher is great for serving hot soups in, on a blustery autumn day like today.
My newest thrift store find, from Blaine, WA in a lovely shop, "Needful Things Amour". A charming shop with a charming owner. She greets you sweetly when you arrive and answers any questions cheerfully. She also gives classes in painting furniture with chalk pain. I also got the pear dishes there the same day. We definitely will go back.
Leaves and vines on the handle of the new pitcher
And one of my all-time favorites, a medium size cabbage soup tureen. Perfect for autumn dinners.
A few candles and a doily complete the setting
More leaves on the spout of the pitcher. I like the subdued colors of this pitcher.
And autumn tea is ready for company - read more about this tea and the new teapot HERE.
