Autumn Centerpiece and Latest Finds

Hello everyone! My daughter has made another floral arrangement in her class at school (High School) and so I decided to have fun with it and use it as the focal point for some Autumn Vignettes/ table centerpieces, while sharing some of my latest finds with you.

Below are my candle shades and sticks that I got at a sale, doilies too and the squash are compliments of Richard at My Old Historic House. :)


For this photo I changed it up just a tad with this embroidered table runner, another recent find. Perfect for this time of year.


Dim the lights a bit and add a basket for a more country look


brighten it up a bit and add a turkey in the background.


I bought the basket at a sale and the owner said it was nearly 100 years old, I thought it was cool


but nobody else did so I ended up getting it for $2.50 at the end of the sale!

The below Victorian Scrapbook is another of my latest finds


filled with lots of trade cards and scrap art...


the pretty gal on the cover reminds me of a Pilgrim so I paired her up with this Pilgrim postcard,


and now let's pair her up with this turkey for another table vignette.


And speaking of turkeys, here are a few more postcards for you to look at. The one in the front is one I got just last week at a sale.


Now I want to share with you some sweet little November blooms


I totally adore Foxgloves and besides blooming this past early Summer I had never had much luck with them so to have this plant bloom again, especially in November, is a very special treat for me.


Have a blessed week and thank you so much for stopping by!

  8. Your daughter did a beautiful job on the flower arrangement! I wish I had learned that at school. Love your Victorian scrapbook. I have one too and it is so fun to look at the ephemera in it from time to time. Those are great Thanksgiving postcards! Each season I get mine out and display the ones for that holiday in a photo holder stand.
