Bits of fall despite the heat…

I tried to set a nice table when Lee was here for dinner Monday night. I used my glass cake stand (a wedding present), some mixed votives, and 5 seasonal gourds to make a center piece. Add my favorite handmade napkins, another wedding present, and we felt quite fallish. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also used my new salad bowl – a delicious, cranberry glazed piece I got from a local potter. I was delighted with this piece – I love pottery, but will not be able to afford to fill my kitchen with it until Anja becomes a potter. ๐Ÿ™‚ But this was a ‘second’ – the glaze was a little sparse on one section of the rim – and the potter said he never sold seconds! I received it gratefully along with the other item I purchased from his studio.

I thought the dark green romaine in the salad looked so vibrant against the grape-colored inner walls, and was pleased with how well it matched my thrifted dinner plates.

P.S. I’ve decorated the blog for fall as well – what do you think?

    will, you probably viewed the page while I was in the process of editing it. At one point the background was black, but I found my chosen font colors to electric against it.

    Alice, you can be glad fall is taking its time – there should be lots left to enjoy still after the 8th. plenty of leaves to gather, I suspect. If you wanted… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hmm what happened to the colors? There was this dark grayish background before and now it is white? The orange text on the screen does not pop like it did on the darker background. ๐Ÿ™

    Oh, TRINA! You make me moan with jealousy! ๐Ÿ™‚ After the wedding, we are going to have fall dinners like that every night.

    Oh yum. Now I am craving salad! Guess What? The garage is finished to the point that the drums in my dining room can go OUTSIDE!! I'm pondering ideas about what to do with my dining area space back!!!!! Can't wait to *cough* redecorate. (I know I know, I sound like my mother!!) ๐Ÿ™‚
