FALL STYLE.......PAST TO PRESENT


There is nothing new. It's all from the past.
 I'll just bet you can find inspiration for decorating your home for the autumn season,
 right in your own home. 
Not only can it mean savings,
it may evoke some lovely memories. 



I chose a few items that would be the inspiration for today's autumn vignette.
This petite cup and saucer, along with this William and Mary pitcher 
caught my eye right away.
The vintage cup and saucer belonged to Grandmother Estelle
 and the pitcher was a wedding gift of ours from a close family friend.




I also chose to create the vignette on Mother's cherry wooden serving tray.


One Little Thing
When it’s the Right Thing,
Can Fill a Room









Yet, another reason

To fall in love with Autumn

    1. Thank you Deb...it is so small and delicate! My dream would be for Grandmother to just walk through the front door and marvel at some of her beloved belongings. I hope she knows I am just "safekeeping" them for her.

  2. -happy sigh- You have such beautiful items... And you do such lovely arrangements, with them.

    Oh yes, falling in love with Autumn... I always do.

    And I want to look forward to savouring everything about the Autumn Season. Making it last... Not letting thoughts of coming dark/rainy November, enter my mind. :-) Keep my eyes, on the beautiful colors, the abundant fruitfulness, etc. of Autumn...

    1. You are such a love Tessa! It's our season isn't it? In Maine, the snowfall would appear in October....but the month was also spectacular beauty. Texas normally has perfect Novembers....always something to be thankful for! Blessings to you!!!

  3. I love your old china! I also use my old dishes all year around for decorating with. I just add a few seasonal things to them and move some things around. It's affordable! :) Have a beautiful week! Pam
