Welcome

Welcome to our old farmhouse. Over the past year I have learned so much history of this house and the people who lived here. Ninety six years of love, loss, hopes and dreams. Preservation continues and there is always a repair to be done. We are trying to be purest in our preservation as much as we possibly can. I hope you follow along and each week I will try to give you a little history of the house as well as the first owners of the house. I've been lucky enough to find a journal from a Granddaughter who talks about the house as well as her Grandparents. So come follow along and learn about this old house as well as the occupants, old and new.

Fall Into The Wild Side

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing
Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at
So be sure to drop by and see all the beautiful
tablescapes you are sure to find there. Welcome to:
"Fall On The Wild Side"
A view from above
I guess this is not your typical Fall tablescape, but I
thought I might just give "Fall", a little twist. I have used orange candles in brass candlesticks a
small candlestick lamp with a leopard shade I made
several years ago. The vase covered in leopard is just
a run of the mill green vase that I covered in scraps of
leopard material. The vase along with the
small pumpkin are laying in a large wooden leaf.
As we work our way around the table, another small
pumpkin. I used branches from the yard and dried eucalyptus in the vase, letting it fall onto the table.
The table is covered with three table cloths.
A leopard print on the bottom, with a piece of dark
brown and light brown fabric crossing one another.
I incorporated the wine into the center piece, patiently
waiting in it's little bag.
We also have the coffee service waiting, for our after
dinner treat. I used the matching leopard cups placed
in a black tray with a black coffee server. The black
serving tray is from Hobby Lobby and the coffee server,
came from the thrift store.
I have mixed the place setting with leopard and
orange colors. The leopard dishes I bought
several years ago at Kirklands, The orange water
glass is from JC Penny, I have also had them for years.
The wine glasses are from TJ Maxx, Flatware from Value
City, the napkins are from the thrift store as well as the
chargers. So nothing on this table is designer or high
end, just FUN!
I used two napkins, just for fun and color.
Napkin ring is just a plain brass oval shape.
Small bowls came from my Mother.
I have the soup/salad bowl to match the plates under it.
The bread/salad plates are from JC Penny and were
bought at the same time as the water glasses.
Each wine glass has a wine charm depicting a different
little animal.
I used an amber cordial glass and matching spoon for
salt.
I hope you had fun tonight at my little unconventional
Fall dinner, and will visit again soon.
Please don't forget to leave a comment, suggestion or question.
I love hearing from everyone. Bye For Now,
Sandy
