What's on the Sideboard this Month?

My late summer obsession with all things "sunflower"
 has also taken over the hallway sideboard...

I found this wonderful vintage look botanical wall hanging at my friend Robin's store, The Vintage Suitcase, and knew it would be perfect hanging from my old window above the sideboard.

 I wanted to bring in some deeper colors,
and the black framing of the print plays off the other darker accents.

like this old fruit tray that I found earlier this year.
Looks sorta "Fallish" to me...
(counting down the days)

But the real fun came
 when I was able to use a few of my husband's demijohns,
 and then two wine bottle crates that I picked up recently
 for about $10 each at Relics.

the one above is much smaller, but has a hinged lid.

I thought this soup tureen with the grape design would be fitting in the wine box, also giving it a late summer grape harvest theme. (another almost Fall thought)

It's sitting alongside some sunflowers and black-eyed susans
 in an old galvanized florist bucket.

A stack of white ironstone plates atop a platter
and an old carving set make it buffet ready.

(my sweet sis gifted me with the great ruffled ticking tea towel 
from Pottery Barn last year)

I had fun bringing this all together,
I think it will stay for awhile...
at least until Pumpkin time.
(please hurry, I'm sick of this summer heat)

story of my life of late.
