Before we moved to this house, my kitchen china cupboard, had always been just that... a china cupboard. It held china, and some colored crystal and a few antique floral teapots. It never changed, no matter what the Season or Holiday. I had lots of other places to "play" and decorate, so this one I left alone...
But now, I have a limited number of decorating spots, so I make good use of them all. The big change came when it became home for my Tranferware bits and pieces. I don't have "sets" of much, just mismatched items, that I collected here and there.
a few pieces of Ironstone,
and my cow collection.
...for the Seasonal changes I like to add some
"Nature Inspired" elements and colors.
and doesn't everyone want birds to nest in their egg cups?
I love to use Bittersweet and twigs and leaves,
even in the China Cupboard.
and of course pumpkins add to the color and fun.
I don't mind mixing Brown and Red together.
In the Fall the Brown plates line the back.
At Christmas the Red shows up.
Where little pumpkins were growing and the leaves felt at home.

I still need a few pumpkins for the porch,
I just had to leave this tiger striped cutie indoors.
Hope you have a wonderful last week of September,
October is my favorite month of the year.
