SEASONAL TOUCHES OF TREASURED COLLECTIBLES
There are some elements in decorating that just seem to work together.
I have so admired everyone's use of their tiered trays
their unique displays of their favorite fall things.
I do not own a tiered tray,
but....I do have a lovely set of three-tiered depression glass cake stands,
that I thought may work beautifully for such a display.
The glass is a very soft delicate pink.
This glass takes on such a soft golden glow in the light of day.
Any item I chose to add was going to have to be tiny
as there is not much space between each tier.
I then thought of Mother's little tiny collectibles
which I keep tucked away in her china cabinet.
I borrowed a few faux pumpkins and leaves
from around the house
played around until I got the look I was going for.....
Her tiny gray woodland squirrel......
Her tiny siamese cat....
Layers of autumn loveliness....
This little contented cat is normally on display
in our formal living room.....
I love how this came together....
It can be so enjoyable decorating with favorite heirlooms
which are always reminders of our family.
Enjoying her autumn days ...
the new napping spot!
What are your favorite heirlooms
on display for fall?
