I know I've said it a lot lately ...but I just LOVE fall!! The temperature has finally dropped down into the 50's at night and the sky is a beautiful blue hue that makes everything prettier!
One of my best friends surprised me with a package and to my delight it was a fall teapot!!
My little kitchen table is a perfect place for a fall tea for two. We love spiced chai tea and
it smells so good!
I had found this pretty wire cloche for only $8 and just fell in love with the design and burgundy color! Cloches just make me think of Marty...the "cloche queen". Marty is the reason I now love cloche's with all the weekly inspiration and ideas she shares! I'm linking with her
this week. Thanks Marty for being
such a gracious hostess!!
My table started with a yellow tablecloth that I purchased in a thrift store in Pacific Grove, California while on vacation.
The runner was clearance for $2 at Wal-Mart last year and I love the extra long length..I also use it on my large formal dining table as well.
The pumpkin plates were purchased a few weeks ago at Wal-Mart for $3.00 each. I layered them on
my favorite ivory Target plates for a fall look.
The scarecrow was on the 80% clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby last year...I bought several...after all ..they were almost free!! I always buy holiday items off season..especially tablecloths..the savings are tremendous.
The cups and saucers were purchased for 99 cents each at Goodwill. They only had a set of two so into
my basket they went!
The small ceramic pumpkin was purchased at the Dollar Tree this year.
I have collected lots of silk leaves and ornamental pumpkins and gourds over the years and accent with them all around my home. I thought the windowsill needed a little something so I used a swag I made and just added some ornamentals.
My flowers in the garden are revived with all this cool weather and are blooming again! I love the view from my little kitchen window. Someday (when all the kids are out of college) we plan on putting in a large bay window for an even better view of our garden ...a girl can dream but until then I enjoy my garden view.
Enjoy your week and hope you take
time to enjoy your favorite cup of tea!
