Cooler weather is on the horizon and I'm dreaming of cozy evenings of delicious food with delightful friends. A fire blazing or just crackling in the fireplace depends on the thermometer but we'll start with a little wine for sure. I love these bottle covers...one for me and one for everyone else ;-)
My table will have mismatched blue glasses because that's what I have. It's hard to find a whole set at the thrift store ;-( Have a little more wine and no one'll notice ;-)
Easy center piece decorations with maybe
a few pine cones thrown in for good measure.

Also quite fond of mismatched silver ware.
No I really am, and not
just for the reason stated above.

Well I hope you enjoyed my little dream
of harvest time tablescapes.
I would like to thank Country Living
for providing the inspiration.

And for even more inspiring tables there are many more to see over at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch & OH MY! we are in for a treat starting with her guest Bonnie, who is sharing a few of her creations. Believe me you don't want to miss it!

Thanksgiving season is upon us
and near the top of my 'thankful list'
are my blogging beauties.
This is my first fall/winter holiday season
in this wonderland and I am so looking
forward to all the fun.

I love all of the wheat. It has always been one of my favorite things to decorate with for fall. The tablesetting is gorgeous. The wine covers are just gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

Oh pretty -- and I love the feathers added -- I'm so going to "borrow" that for a fall scape. Lovely.

Lovey tablescape; I'm a feather kind of gal too. The stack wheat is very pretty with the satin ribbons.

I adore mismatched silverware! Now sets look rather boring to me. And the feathers! Oh, what pretty images!

The wheat centerpiece is really unique. I love blue and brown together. I'll pass on the wine, but have to tell you I never even noticed the blue glasses were mismatched. Very inviting!

Greetings Candy~ I'm finally back from my summer long blogcation.

I'm in *sugary heaven*!!
I scrolled down the page till I hit bottom:) There was so much beauty to behold! I especially want that red toile tea set...
not to mention several design elements I'd like to add to my home.

The pics in your side bar were just as charming.

I've enjoyed catching up. Please stop by...I look forward to the return of your company.
Sweet wishes,
Sara

Hi Candy,
Thank you to Marydon for inviting you to my blog and thank you for stopping by! I love the table setting ~ the wheat stalks are so unique and I love mismatched items too, it look more collected over time that way.
