Every year for my birthday I treat myself to a trip to the Home Goods Store (and Tuesday Morning a couple of doors down). I love fall dishes. This year I found 8 (count them eight all at one time all at one store) Of 222 Fifth Fall Foliage plates along with some bright orange owl plates. Plus others that you will see over the next few weeks.
The owls are just the cutest things ever. They really have a personality of their own. They looked pretty good with the 222 Fifth plates and my Lace by Kennex creamy yellow chargers. I wanted the beauty of the golds, oranges, and reds without being dark. So this is an early fall tablescape. And yes, I am still clinging to summer even if the leaves are already falling in my neighborhood.
The flatware was a find at the Marks Store a couple of doors up from the Home Goods store. For those of you that don't live in Northern Ohio, Marc's is a closeout store (and a pretty good grocery store & drug store). They come up with some of the greatest finds which you will see over the course of time. The copper leaf under the fork was cut from an old candle holder (hubby cut them off for me today as a matter of fact). The yellow napkins are almost a perfect match in color to the chargers. The tablecloth was a goodwill find that looks like linen but I suspect it's not.
The water glasses and wine glasses were also a Marc's find. The wooden rooster candle holders came from a garage sale last week (cheap).
The faux autumn leaves and placemats came from Marc's along with the fresh flowers.
Thank you for visiting with me today. I really enjoy the company. When you come back I would like to show you some pictures of some of my fall decorating. I have just begun over the last week or so. Last Sunday I added a few things to my kitchen hutch for fall. The hutch itself was a Goodwill find for $12.50 plus tax of course. It took a couple of cans of black spray paint to cover the ugly yellow mid sixty bamboo finish. It came out pretty good. Wish the picture was better for you. This came out the best out the dozen I took.
I do hope you come back soon. Enjoy the fall, soon enough it will be winter and all of this will be a memory. Make the most of those memories. Go out, have some fun, Enjoy nature's amazing fireworks show as the trees are changing to blazing colors across the hillsides. Go pick some apples with the family. Just go, Enjoy.
