Hey everyone! I'm lovin' fall and enjoying baking and a little cooler weather! Finally!
Here in my dining room I seem to have too much! I love plates and have a few collections in my 30 years of marriage. Hubby actually likes plates too and was raised by a mother and grandmother who collected plates and handpainted china. So plates are considered special in this farmhouse. We have also raised our boys (kids) to appreciate plates, china, tablesettings, etc. We also taught our boys (and daughter) to be comfortable saying "I love you" to all their aunts, grandparents. I've wanted them to be comfortable when it came time to be married to say those words! Here is our kitchen, the heart of our home! We laugh, visit, and have family meetings here. Our farmhouse is large but we end up here most of the time. It is a happy room filled with wonderful memories and food.
Above, the brown fabric napkins are from my favorite consignment store. The napkin rings I found in a marvelous thrift store in Palm Springs (surprisingly the thrift stores were disappointing there.) The dishes are mostly from Walmart during their fall season dish surplus. The placemats were from Target a few years ago. I love fall colors!
This little squirrel is one of my favorites....I love wooden items and wish I knew how to use a skill saw....I play the piano at church so I can't enjoy this hobby unless I was willing to take the risk! hahaha....that's a big no.
Have you participated yet in Susan's Tablescape day? Maybe you should give it a try. It is loads of fun!
Have a wonderful day!
