Easy & simple to add a designer touch.
and candles as inspired by the harvest season.
A few treasures from the yard make great additions to a centerpiece.
A pumpkin spice candle burning in a crystal vase..smells of fall.
On the mantle...I have to keep a collection of hurricane lamps,
for our electricity goes out from time to time. They really take us back
to another romantic time, and put out quite a bit of light when needed.
Sometimes they are just nice to light on the mantle when it is still too warm for a fire.
The copperplate engraving print over the fireplace is quite special and sentimental.
Buddy, my husband surprised me with this antique print..."Waiting on the Carriage".
As the days grow shorter, the tiny lights `elevate the mantle.
Velvet pumpkins are tucked into tiny lights, greenery and my white pottery collection.
A Mark Roberts "Pumpkin Man" hangs onto
a silver epergne and another velvet pumpkin.
A tiny vintage cameo is on the velvet pumpkin in the hallway.
A mix of gold and silver lends to a softer look.
It is hard to take a good picture in my dining room for there is little natural light with
the stained glass windows.
It looks like the farmers basket of fall goodness spilled out in abundance
for this big statement centerpiece.
The dining table is where I meet with brides over a glass of peach tea,
so I am excited to share
a glimpse of festive fall in my home.
Thank you all so much for stopping by the blog today
to see that I am not letting hot weather stand in my way!
