Burlap and Brown Transferware

two of my favorite things...

Hi Everyone, Happy Sunday!
It really IS a happy Sunday, as I'm back home from the hospital and want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of you who left comments on my last post. Blogger wasn't updating some blogs last week, (I was just one of many) so I hope this one will show up on your readers, email, and blog lists.



I'll give you some photos of my latest Late Fall Vignette where I wanted to say a BIG Thank You to Sherry of No Minimalist Here who hosted a wonderful Give Away this Fall for a generous gift certificate to Antiques Lifestyle. I used my gift certificate to pick out this beautiful Hand Stenciled Burlap Tablerunner. You can find more like it at Laurie's beautiful Etsy Shop. Thank you so much Laurie and Sherry!









My Dining Room table is currently "under construction" 
 for my Thanksgiving Tablescape, which I'll be sharing with you this week.
So one of my Bergere Chairs in the Living Room had to make do.

Isn't that design amazing?!


I can't wait to get it on my table!

So, back to the Late Fall Vignette in the lower level sitting area 
next to my French Doors, which let in the afternoon sunlight.




This was last Tuesday, you should see the amount of leaves out there now.




I gathered some of my Brown Transferware; platters, plates, sugars and creamers together to decide what I wanted to use for the Tablescape.








Just random bits and pieces of patterns...






I've been building my Tablescape Centerpiece with just naturals,
and here are some dried pods I was using.














I found the olive bucket on Decor Steals earlier this Fall.
It definitely was less expensive than any where else I had seen.












I was in the hospital Tuesday until Saturday night, and had lot's of tests run to see if we could understand where the blood clots are coming from and if there were any permanent problems from them. I've tried several blood thinning drugs, and we now feel like we have things under control. God has been gracious to me, as any one of them that was moving around in there could have caused a stroke, but it didn't happen. I may be going a little slower in blogging until I can get my self back, but the weekly parties won't change. Be sure and come by tomorrow morning, and throughout the week for The Marketplace.


You all are loved and appreciated,
thank you for the prayers and caring thoughts,
and thank you for being such good friends.

joining in for these parties:

Dwellings for Amaze Me Monday
Thrifty Tuesday at Coastal Charm
Mod Mix Monday at Mod Vintage Life
Inspire Me Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life

  65. Debra,
    So much to be grateful for at this time of year for all our blogging friends, but especially for you since you have good news from your doctors.

    Your tablescape is beautiful as usual. Brown is not my favorite color, but when I look at your transferware, I think I may change my mind.

    Happy Thanksgiving...
