FABBY: "Little Fall Touches"


Hello sweet friends!

Now that my sweet darling grand- girls went back to their home last Thursday; besides missing them a lot, I've been cleaning, washing and putting things in order in my house.

Along the way, I also decorated here and there with 'little Fall touches' not much, but I love to see the pop of orange, it simply makes me happy!

Hope you like it.


The friends that follow me might remember  I (had to buy it) bought this gorgeous cobalt blue crystal Murano compote back in June when I lost the 'Soccer World Cup' bet!

I sprayed painted some dry little pumpkins I kept from last year... pine cones and gourds a month ago and so I placed them here.


 
I also dragged out from storage my bread dough bowl and decorated it with just pine cones of every size and some gold ones, as well.

 
I will be using it as a centerpiece for my Tksgiving table this year.
 
For the holidays I will replace the orange candle for a green, red...or a gold one.
Some small touches of Fall in the dining room buffet on my Meissen two tier server, since I always keep it here.
 
A small bouquet of sweet pansies.


Love the pansies bouquet...now that today is my birthday, lol...

In the other side of the buffet I arranged flowers in my other Meissen piece; again with some little pumpkins and gourds...and ducky, of course.

The mantel with blue and white Dutch Delft pieces.

This antique, Egyptian piece I love and is one of my very fav; it was a gift Mr. Living gave me for my birthday nine years ago, therefore, I arranged a vignette for my birthday too, which is today, as you read this post; Oct. 20th..., along with my Royal Albert October teacup that my dear Mil left me, as her own birthday was the following day from mine.

I 'm honoring her too with this small vignette. 


Everything is mostly pink for my birthday, and to honor 'Breast Cancer Month'... like the tall German urn, the vintage French soldier marmalade bowl, the 'Capodimonte' tray with putti and finally my 'Royal Albert' heirloom teacup. 



Thank you so much sweet ladies for your lovely visits, as you always make my day!

Thanking the lovely gracious hostesses for having me at their great parties...and specially to the generous and supportive ladies that honor me, featuring my posts and they are:

Beautiful Fall décor, Fabby. I love the orange and deep blue combo. You make me lol knowing you reward yourself with something pretty when you lose on something. That sounds like me, after all, we have to make ourselves feel better, right? LOL!

I am in the middle of a mystery where the big clue is a smashed Meissen Compote in blue and white in Buckingham Palace. Now I can picture it!
