Fall Vignette

A lone container of mums sat on the dining room table…

Thought I would give it some company with a few Fall touches…

…..until I can create larger Fall Vignette in the room.


So I reached for more pieces of my Jewel Tea Autumn Leaf collection..


I often wondered why the combination of fruit and flowers are always such a beautiful combination..

….well, of course they would be…as fruit begins as magnificent blossoms.



The beautiful textures of Fall always amaze me…


From the beautiful branches of glorious color, to the great pumpkins and gourds of the crops of Fall.



I bought this great wood tray with the metal accents at the Pottery Barn Outlet..


A lantern added to warm the crisp evenings of Fall…


Cups and saucers for those wonderful hot drinks of Fall..some great hot apple cider…

…..and just coffee for me please!


Have a wonderful weekend, hopefully enjoying some lower temps and lower humidity…

…..and possibly going down “the road less traveled”….

  5. Summer is such a short season in Maine that I can hardly bear thi king it is almost fall. If the few red leaves outside the back door are any indication, it’s coming soon. At this moment, however, I’m in Houston and there’s no hint of fall here!

    It looks beautiful, Shirley. I am chomping at the bit to do some fall decorating but with record high temps, I am waiting until we return from our vacation on the Oregon Coast. Hopefully, then the temps will be a little cooler here. Let the pumpkins, leaves, warmer colors invade our space!

  12. Really gorgeous! I love how those orange leaves in that first pic, set off that beautiful blue and white tureen. Hope you also travel that road! 😉

  13. Glorious, Shirley! I love love love the Mum in that pretty blue and white container! Stunning fall vignette!

  14. Love it! This is the inspiration I needed to start some Fall decorating…

  15. I love it! Time for me to start working on my fall decorating!

  16. You know… I don;t give the Mum the respect it deserves. I have never bought a plant… never planted it. Now you make me want to run out a grab a few. I just will.
    What a beautiful vignette. Watch the apricots 🙂 I might just have pinched a few as I strolled through.
    Happy Friday Shirley.
    Hugs, Gee

  20. You have some very lovely pieces of the Jewel Tea collection. I also have a few pieces passed down to me from my grandmother. I’ve noticed lately it has gotten very expensive. I guess more people are seeing the importance of lovely old china. Thanks for sharing.

  21. Lovely vignette and those great Jewel Tea collection dishes. I had forgot all about them until I saw them on your post. My Aunt had a set of them and that was her everyday dishes – brought back some wonderful memories.
    Love the wooden tray with the mums. I have wanted to get some but it’s been in the three digit’s here so will wait until it cools off a bit.
    Thanks for sharing your lovely post.
    Have a great weekend.

  22. Great vignette. I remember my grandmother purchasing that Jewel Tea pattern. She would purchase an addition to her collection each time the salesman came by. I think she bought more dishes than tea.
    Have a great weekend, Ginger

  24. I love how you’ve corralled your vignette items by using the tray. I saw a whole set of the china at an antique store that I was in today, and I was really admiring it. So pretty!
