It's been a very busy week here....so I hope a repeat tablescape is ok.... I love sunflowers during this "one foot in summer...one foot in fall season". Hope everyone's having a great week.
What do you suppose it is that brings us back week after week with anticipation to Tablescape Thursday? Is it the enjoyment of the "creating" or the inspiration of seeing other tablescapes. Whatever keeps bringing us back, I want to thank Susan for hostessing this wonderful spot each week for us to enjoy!
Welcome to my early autumn table this week. We're just beginning to have a little bit of "crispness" to our early mornings around here. (I know because the "boys" get me up every morning at 6 for their pre-breakfast walk). The rest of the day is still warm and up in the 80's ....just a fleeting "hint" of fall for early risers.
I used two matching tablerunners as my placemats this week. These were from an Atlanta thrifting excersion with my DIL over a year ago.
You know I've set a place for you!

Overview of the table.
Love the fresh flowers -- I don't often use flowers for my centerpieces, because I don't have a pretty cutting garden like many of you do -- mine are usually from the grocery store.
This basket is vintage, it was from my grandmother's house -- she kept it by her phone with pads and pencils and sissors, stamps and stationary in it.
One final look at our "Early Autumn" table. As I look back at last year, when I used these same dishes for a tablescape, I find that my style has changed somewhat over the past year. More mixture of patterns and textures. I enjoy seeing how other's have inspired me to try different things.
Be sure to visit Susan at "Between Naps on the Porch" starting each Wednesday evening around 8 o'clock (Eastern Standard Time) or so for a whole variety of tablescapes. It's a real dish delight!
