New China & Dried Flowers

My new found ironstone mug and saucer are all ready for chilly mornings ahead. They make an impromptu vignette with other recent finds that always seem to start out on my dining room table.

A small wicker flower basket that I came across is perfect for all the dried weeds and flowers that I collect in fall. But right now I am gathering together a few display ideas with the dried bouquets I already have.

Still on the table are a few rose china dishes that I got at a great price that seem perfect for fall too, I am drawn to a bit of dusty pink in September. Just a touch. And I like the spare pattern these have against a soft ivory color.

I bought the grass a long time ago. I'm glad it lasts forever because I am always shocked at the cost of dried bouquets!

Better to keep the few fresh bunches that I get throughout the year when I can. I made an effort to dry my white roses in a sort of garland when I hung them to dry this time.

They are simply perched on top of this fab fruit basket I scored a few weeks ago for now. (I seem to go basket crazy this time of year!)

All the pale colors seem happy together with the touches of gold on this overcast day. We are due for our first fall showers this afternoon. Can there be anything more delicious?

Time to get the tea kettle on!

I hope you are also having a cozy start to your week!

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!

It is ALWAYS nice to stop for a cozy break at your place! Sweet new Rosy china and LOVE the fruit basket and the white basket too (it looks just like a funeral basket minus the handle I think / and like that idea)... I must get busy and think about drying some blooms too, first I have to accept the coming season...

Simply lovely. I can almost feel myself in the midst of it all enjoying a fine cup of tea. I Love that rose cups and saucers are made in America!

Beautiful, as always!

Since I began blogging and reading others, I have learned to use weeds, greens and anything I can find to bring color into the house.
