Hello everyone! As usual I have been too busy to blog but the other day I did get on and was so inspired by all of your beautiful Fall posts that I decided I must get one going. I wanted to show you some of my latest finds so decided to combine it with this Autumn post.
My Great Auntie, who is 90, had an auction and before the day I was able to pick out a few things. I picked this kerosene lamp because I liked the base, I think it is a milk glass base. The pink, orange, purple and green painted on it are Autumn colors so I decided to use it as the inspiration piece for this post.
I brought out my grandmother's hand stitched quilt of brown and pink, and bought a mum and some pumpkins for the staging.
For this vignette I added a hand embroidered tablecloth, an enameled amber glass tumbler, an amber pressed glass Japanese fan shaped dish for the maple cookies, a tussie mussie,
this hand colored brown transferware tile that is a recent find
and this velvet pillow with thistle blooms to match the other purples in this Autumn post. This piece used to be a piano scarf but I cut it down to slip over a pillow.
And now for my tea loving friends, I brought out a cuppa tea for us, using my Johnson Bros. Staffordshire Bouquet pattern. On the chair, covered with the quilt, a lace window panel and a green velvet scarf, is another latest find...
a silver plated water tipper!
Isn't it a beauty with its matching water goblet?! The posy was made by my daughter in her floral design class at school, I thought it would be sweet to use for this post.
Well that is it for now, but before you go please have some tea and a cookie. Thanks so much for visiting and have a blessed Autumn week.
