Hello sweet friends!
I saw some gourds and small pumpkins in my local grocery store the other day, so I bought some and started to create a few small vignettes around my dining room, just to sort of go into a 'slow transition to Fall'... not that we have a four season weather in this country, mind you, but it's gorgeous out like a warm Fall, very windy and even some leaves are falling from the trees, besides pumpkins, gourds, etc are been sold in the market... and really it's a beautiful time of year around here as well, which always reminds me of Autumn in NYC.
"I am sad about how fast great comedian 'Joan Rivers' past away this week and it looks like maybe she shouldn't have, I've been hearing comments on the news."
" Anyway, she will be missed, I was a huge fan of hers. She had such an immense stamina and energy for a lady of 'just' 81. I simply adored her witted and fast humor, as she played 'Fashion Police' on E-TV and criticized the stars red carpet BAD choice in dressing, lol!
God bless her soul and thank you so much for making us laugh, she did me, for sure! "
Ok, here goes my Fall tweakings..
|This vignette is done at the right side of the Italian buffet with gourds and small pumpkins on a Czech Onion bowl and some in the Meissen two tier server. |
The teapot is Indischblau-Bavaria, Germany as well.
|My collection of blue and white transferware plates and others, such as Dutch ones, Oriental and some are from our former Ceramic Factory, Monte Turi.|
To the right wall, (not shown in the pic) there's more plates hanging.
|The Onion bowl with such cute gourds and pumpkins that are showing up on the market around here lately too.|
|On the left side of the Italian buffet; as this piece has two sides with a china cabinet in the center....I arranged some Pink treasures|
with the Lady Carlyle three tier server and some gourds on the Meissen bowl with girls playing hide and seek.
|The candle holders are Bohemian from the Czech-Republic.|
|My third vignette is done on my vintage, American nesting tables that were my Mil's.|
|Some of you might remember I DIYed the blue cake stand a couple of years ago, using a lovely pretty cobalt blue Italian platter and I glued on a small blue bowl for a pedestal. |
I did two; the other in crystal, which I gave to DD Sofia.
I call it a 'slow transition' because there is not much here to indicate BIG FALL, but just some small cute gourds and pumpkins added to some of my fave things around the dining room.
Thank you for your sweet and kind comments my friends, as you always make my day.
Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
