Fall Changes in the Dining Room


A couple of weeks ago
I shared my inspiration French ticking
and the fabric I found to make a table runner.

Well, I finished the tablerunner and made two accent pillows,
and I'm really lovin' the change!

I arranged my French iron basket on the table
with some wonderful sunflowers
and now I'm on my way for Fall.
Oh yeah, my absolute favorite time of the year!












and just a peek of one of my favorite old prints,
The Gleaners
 on the wall in the background.













Here's one of my decorating assistants.
She's such a huge help,
can you tell...?
she's dusting.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend,
and that you survived Irene,
all you out on the East Coast,
our prayers are with you.

xoxo,

Love the fabric you chose for the runner, Debra! I'm ready for Fall, too! It would be great if, after all this Hurricane/Tropical Storm nonsense, we got some cooler air in.
