And since it's the time when pumpkins just jump into baskets, too, this year I placed a Fairytale pumpkin that found it's way into our shopping cart, smack dab in the middle of the table surrounded by a fabulous faux garland that I've wrapped in a circle.
Not too shabby for faux, huh? I thought so, too. I've had it for eons. Sometimes it's hanging on the kitchen door as a wreath and sometimes it's on the table.
Rustic just speaks to my heart. It says warm, casual and "gemutlichkeit".
There's something about Mary and there is just something about madras! I don't know why it takes me back to my teenage years. Was madras big in the 60's over here?
The little white pumpkins are real. Yeppers. I have quite a stash of them sitting around. One here, one there, a couple over there.
Boy, that candle sure looks crooked. Hmm. Sorry. I still love just a bit of Spanish moss in the cup of a candle. Especially on a rustic table.
The Fitz and Floyd pitcher has made another appearance. It's just like a Timex, takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'. I use it spring summer and fall. Did you notice that I layered another runner right over the top of the burlap runner? It certainly adds a bit more texture and color to the table.
Mikasa French Countryside glasses play well with the hand blown glass from France found in Santa Fe. It's amazing if you buy what you like, how much it will all really go together.
