I cannot leave enough alone. I was rearranging my pretties on my coffee table
and I decided to grab my antique bread basket that I found in France
and fill it with pretties.
A floral arrangement of sorts of many pretties with a wide variety of colors,
faux and natural elements, all to make a French antique basket of great textures.
My beautiful silk velvet Plush Pumpkins have made the rounds this year.
From the foyer, to the Great Room coffee table, and now some of them landed
in my antique French bread basket.
Now what could be better than beautiful pumpkins in a blueberry patch.
And what also could be better than beautiful roses in the prettiest shade of pink
to join the pumpkins of silk velvet and branches of blueberries.
When I saw these pretty roses at Trader Joe’s I knew they would complement
the purples and plums that I have in the house for Fall.
I used the floral aqua picks to house each rose stem.
The old tattered cloth basket liner just makes my heart sing!
I purchased these wonderful blueberry stems years ago when my favorite gift shop
was closing. They were 75% off …. so I bought all they had.
To enhance the arrangement of pretties even more, the tops of the acorns
(acorns also by Plush Pumpkin) and the real pumpkin stems
add yet more elements of texture.
It is going to be a very sad day when I have to pack up these gorgeous pumpkins
only to be replaced by the pretties of Christmas.
Hmmmm, I wonder if someone can invent Christmas pumpkins?!
Who can resist pretty velvet with the beauty of a rose.
It is like a rose boutonniere or corsage on a great velvet jacket.
So, have you wondered what I did with the coffee table?
A little restyling with the remaining pumpkins
and the ironstone tureen of the fabulous Autumn Joy found its way to the table.
This is proof that things never stay the same around here for long . . .
just the people are the same! A good thing!
An unexpected day trip over the weekend and a super busy day on Monday,
prevented me from working on my little project. But I will resume today and
hopefully make some “headway and footway too”.
Have a most beautiful day everyone! The temps dropped 20 degrees yesterday
when the rains came. (We really needed rain)
Maybe we shall see some sudden changing of leaves! One can dream!
