Whewwww….. That’s me breathing a huge sigh of relief. I gave a baby shower Sunday afternoon. I enjoyed every minute, but the last leftover has been shipped out or zip locked, the last dish is in the dishwasher, and the house is quiet again. Beloved and the dogs can come home :) There is contentment in a finished project and the glow of candlelight.
The house is “company” clean and decorated for autumn. I hope you don’t get tired of this particular spot in my house. It’s my favorite place to herald the current holiday or season.
Rose hips and this yellow flower just look like fall to me. I am not sure what the yellow flower is. Does anyone know?
The copper flower bowl was a gift to me from the expectant mother’s mother! It is handmade of hammered copper. I have seen an aging one in a local gift shop. This one will develop a lovely blue-green patina –or I can always polish it. The candle was a gift also. I helped out a friend of mine who is a REAL candlemaker! She run her own successful business. This is one of my favorite scents for the kitchen—sugar cookie.
I love this pumpkin plate made by Kaldun and Bogle. This company is run by the maternal grandsons of Krist Kaldun and John Bogle. They pay particular attention to sculpture and detail. Their pieces remind me of Fitz and Floyd at more affordable prices. I put this pumpkin out at the first hint of fall and take it down the day after Thanksgiving.
Several of you have asked about this oil painting in the breakfast room. I bought this and the companion roosters when a design shop was going out of business. The artist’s name is covered by the frame. When I redid my kitchen the black in the frame was the “leaping off” inspiration for the black and khaki color scheme.
I’m joining Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday. I’ll be in class tonight until 9:30, but I’ll be visiting you tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!~~Susan
