A Touch of Fall

Update: I just joined a great party at domestically speaking !

Who's ready for fall? Well I guess I am since I've begun

rooting around the fall decorations at home.

I thought I'd start out small since it's still pre-Labor Day.

A few pumpkins & gourds in the punch bowl to

let Mother Nature know I'm ready for cool weather!

Here's some more of my blue and white collection too.

Spode napkin rings - 4 of a set of 12

A mod podge of appetizer plates collected at TJ Maxx.

Four little fish friends (I like the one swimming ahead)

which are chop stick holders for the table :)

And a small box brought home from Italy by

my parents with a gift in it for my son.

Above the buffet hands my portrait done in St. Louis

in the lobby of the

Well, one piece done, more to come!


  1. Oh I do so love your blue with the orange. One of my new favorite color combinations of all time. Beautiful vignette. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

  2. Great job and I love all the blue. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Willow Ware blue and white with orange is a classy look. I love to use my Currier and Ives blue and white dishes for Thanksgiving dinner. You commented on my post about the handwritten invitation. I am with you...I still think they should teach cursive writing in school. My mother-in-law always wrote letters to my kids but I had to read them the letters because they can barely read cursive. Older folks had beautiful penmanship.

  4. Everything is so pretty! You have some lovely blue and whites!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
