There is nothing borrowed in this mixture of elements. But the arrangement is a nice marriage of some of my current collections combined with recent finds. Some things old, some new, and a bit of blue.
Items come and go from this basic display that has worked in my dining room for a long time now. It should look very familiar to you by this time!
But I am always so pleased when I come across something that fits right in, like this adorable little transferware pitcher that I found recently. It is a rarer multi-colored version that charms the socks right off me. I love the russet tones that lend just a suggestion of fall color. And it will make a sweet little vase for a small gift bouquet of flowers. I found it at a fleamarket for four dollars. Could you pass it up at that price?
I am working with some new display ideas and love how a few gathered items can come together for a whole new look.
One of my older favorites. . .
Shown with my most recent brown transferware find.
It's a style that is already right at home with what's presently sitting on my shelves.
My decorating mode tends to just evolve over time when I am involved with lesser things. A tweak here, and a tweak there.
Thank goodness for a little new interest crossing my path once in a while!
I am plainly drawn to the same themes over and over again as this collection of tablecloths gathered together shows.
I collect cloths with similar cross-stitch patterns on them in these tan and browns as well.
Surprisingly, they are fairly common and inexpensive to acquire. And one of them is usually layered on my table every day.
The new serving plate is also a stand out with all my white china as well.
And just a bit of color breaks up all the white that I love so much.
Our fall days are still so beautiful that I can hardly stay indoors!
I hope that you are able to find the beauty in your days too!
