Welcome Fall Color

Fall is my favorite season and I welcome it with open arms and a sweatshirt!
Along with the nip in the air comes all of the beautiful fall color this time of year.  
Autumn is the true benefit of living in Ohio.
I have not been posting much lately but I just could not let this season go by without doing a fall table.
We grew some of these gourds in our garden this year!
I added a little favor by wrapping some chocolates in fall papers and adding a few die cut leaves, topping it all off with a bright orange organza bow with a strand of jute.
These leaf and acorn dishes where one of my first big dish purchases and are still one of my favorites.
 I hope your fall has been as beautiful as ours has been here in Ohio.
Hopefully this will get me kick started to post a few more tables before the end of the year!

Thanks for stopping by.

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
