FABBY: My Kitchen has Fallen

Hello sweet friends!

I decorated my kitchen for Fall specially cause mother comes for lunch and spends every Wednesday with Alejandro and me.

I've set a table for three, plus the Fall d├ęcor my mom loves and reminds her of Astoria-Queens, NY, in the Fall, which is my home town. 

Fall is our favorite time of year where there is a four season climate and here where we live is right now chilly, but for most it feels like Fall, so yes, I feel really ready, lol!

Ok, here is my Fall Kitchen.

I fixed a lunch table for mother who always comes for lunch and to spend the day with Alejandro and me every Wednesday for many years.

The table in our kitchen nook is sort of a butcher block and I kept it from our country home, some 34 years ago... so it's 'almost' vintage now, hehehe

I love that warm rustic look it gives to our kitchen, but I do need to have it sand down and fixed those opened slits caused by so many years of use.

I bought two rustic ceramic pumpkins for $2.50 each; like this green one and the other in a gold tone, at your upper right hand.

I found them in the 'folkloric-art fair' sale the other day.

I also found this adorable wooden tool box in the fair for $12.

Mother loves soup and the custom here is a bigger lunch, starting with a soup and a second meat dish, since dinner is  very light.

Some of you might remember I bought this great shell-roos back in May when we went around the coastal region of Ecuador.

My tool box is done up with gourds and little pumpkins, blue and white dishes and red teacups, and the flatware is inside antique pewter teapot.

The burnt orange, 'straw-shawl' hand made place mats were also bought back at our May vacation. They are hand made little daisy's.

I love the ceramic rustic pumpkins, though!

Looks like the rooster flew up to here now, lol..

The yellow and green ceramic pumpkin in the corner of the sink; is the other one I found at the 'folkloric-art market.'

A very old tarnished pitcher is now my flower vase.

English-Staffordshire red teapot for some tea with dessert.

I love the blue and white transferware dishes paired with the burnt orange place mats.

Thank you for visiting me sweet friends, as your comments always make my day!

Thanking the lovely and gracious hostesses for having me at their great parties.
