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”….

Adding A Little “Fall” to the Kitchen {Jewel Tea Autumn Leaf}

Yes, September is here…time to dream about falling temperatures and falling leaves.

But it is still hard to think about that when the temperatures are still in the high 80’s..

And, the trees are still full of their beautiful green leaves.

One can pretend though…

Today, I added some “fall teasers” in the kitchen.


I have a collection of Hall Jewel Tea Autumn Leaf dinnerware.

A great design for Fall.

Fall Kitchen Decor

I gathered some accent pieces of this collection to bring the warmth of Fall into the kitchen..


Changed out the “summer” vintage tablecloth to the pretty tones of oranges and peach…

…..I store half of my vintage tablecloths in my treasured A&P shopping cart.



These pieces replaced a crystal bowl of fruit and a crystal basket that held napkins.

Today, a gravy boat holds the napkins…


Nothing says Fall like a great bowl of apples…


And why is it that flowers and fruit look so beautiful together…

…..because that is what “Mother Nature” planned.

These apples remind me that we need to take the time to travel to an apple orchard in the Fall.

Such a beautiful time of the year…

And…I would like to take this time to thank all of you for your many, many kind words…

…..beautiful words of comfort this past week…I so truly appreciate it.


A package appeared on my front porch…it contained this beautiful vase.

A vase that has great meaning to me.

A beautiful friend gave this to me….To remind me that I have a special angel to watch over me always.

Have a beautiful day!
