The table runner was a crocheted runner that Grandmother Grace made. My mother used this often, so this was the next piece I selected for the table. I love the soft shade of taupe linen and again, it has the texture I was looking for.
Mothers buffet was next on my decorating list. I decided to take the autumn wreath from the fireplace and put it on the mirror in the dining room. The little pilgrim couple at the end has graced some little nook and cranny for many years. It is a primitive collectible I purchased, probably a good twenty or so years ago.
I have so enjoyed these Mercury Glass pumpkins! I took the Mercury Glass candlesticks from the living room and placed them on the buffet to create height. It is absolutely stunning in the evening with the soft glow from within each pumpkin.
This is a daytime shot that shows the tablecloth texture close-up.....this is exactly what I was looking for! The hurricanes have coffee beans and a three-bean variety surrounding each candle! This gives off a wonderful aroma when the candles are lit!
