Ahhh the golden hues of fall... I have these cream soups that I thought would be perfect for a bowl of grits..
With the morning sun streaming through the window, it makes for a great spot for breakfast...
Since the time change and the leaves falling off of the trees, it is getting brighter earlier in our family room..
I filled a compote with these fabric balls from a few years ago...
I won't give you a lot of memories for this table..well, maybe one...LOL This dried corn bundle came from my Mama a long time ago. I have cared for it and it has lasted for well over 10 years. I know...amazing..
Oh well, one more...see that orange marbleized pitcher? As I was leaving my Daddy's house for the last time, it caught my eye..we were already packed up with all that we could carry.. I saw this little pitcher sitting on his art table holding fake flowers..so I took them out and brought this home...My grandmother painted it..she was way before her time with artistic ventures..I have heard stories about her using oil paint drizzled onto a washtub of water..dipping things in the water and paint to make these spectacular marbleized pieces...I am so happy that I have one of them...She was so very creative and not afraid to experiment with anything.. I would love to have a conversation with her now...
It wasn't until after I looked at the pictures..I promise this is true...that I realized I had brought a lamp that I have loved with NO place to use it for years, and placed it on this table right next to the marbleized pitcher..and the lampshade goes so beautifully with it....I am a firm believer in this way of decorating..
Buy or collect what you love and it will all go together..
So glad you came for a visit...I love, love, love reading your comments and try to visit each and every one of you...tell me if you follow me and I will follow you too...all y'all stay warm in the freezing south...
Come on over to these beautiful parties......there is a lot going on in blogland..
