Hi everybody! Marty's having another cloche party and I sure wanted to join the fun. I hope that nobody minds if I show a little "Fall Fluffing" as well. The winds of fall have blown through my house and brought a few changes.....
...My summer swan lake turned into.....
... a fall pumpkin patch! A couple of you asked me to show my sideboard that was peeking out behind one of my last tablescapes -- so here's a full picture. I found this several years ago at an antique store.
A couple of closer shots. Pumpkins, indian corn, fall leaves, dried hydrangeas, a few peacock feathers and some acorns make up my fall arrangement.
I found this monogrammed silver plated coffee pot when I was "treasure hunting" a couple of weeks ago. Not my initials....but I don't care about that -- I loved it anyway.
Here she is all shined up and in her glory.
.....moving to the other side of the pumpkin patch.....
....it's not a cloche, but my sugar scuttle that was holding summer shells, now contains autumn acorns.
The white damask table runner has been changed to a fall colored tapestry and my coffee server stands ready to keep some refreshments warmed on a crisp fall evening. Maybe some hot cider?
My half round table filled with summer shells and a tureen ready to serve some summer chowder.....
....has moved it's location and also contains pumpkins and a leaf embossed candle in a hurricane globe. (Marty says they count even if it's not a cloche!)
I forgot to show my summer washstand -- think shells -- but it's now dressed for fall.
Yes, we're "back to school" now and writing on my "black board".
Ok - finally! ...an honest to goodness cloche! I've caught a little squirrel.
My apothecary jar contains some fall sunflowers and acorns ....all tied up with a fall bow on top.
A tiny plate of acorns.
I was looking on eBay for an antique postcard of a school and found a very special one!
This school was C.H.Friend in South Boston, VA. When it was a high school -- my mother graduated there --- my father taught there --- and later on when it became an elementary school --- my grandmother was the cafeteria manager. What a fun treasure to find!
Not a cloche, but a tiny glass basket of fallness.
Even the powder room has changed from sandcastles and shells.....
....to scarecrows and acorns!
Found these cute towels at Kohls.
Mr. Scarecrow in the pumpkin patch.
Who doesn't love a friendly little scarecrow man (especially one that obviously can't scare the crows away!)
My front door has changed from a bucket of white flowers to....
An autumn greeting to warmly welcome you.
Wishing everyone a happy, fun-filled Fall and many blessings upon your home and all who enter there.
Be sure to visit Marty at "A Stroll Thru Life" to see what everyone has captured under glass.
