First Fall Tablescape

I'm not even going to try and name this "Early Fall Tablescape", because I'm sure I'll change this up in a few weeks for something a little more "Fallish" with some colorful leaves and berries. So let me be honest here and just call it, "First" Fall Tablescape. te he. I've already turned my calendar page over to September. I did mark a "31" on today's date, but I am ready to move into one of my favorite months and seasons. yep, more than ready. Last week I painted a French-y metal basket for the Dining Room table, and put together an arrangement that whispered the first nuances of Autumn. Here are some pics of the rest of the table.

Lavender Hydrangeas

It's obvious that I've waited too long to photo these little hydrangeas blooms. I cut them a couple of days ago, but things got busy and then yesterday afternoon the light was wrong, so this morning they're pretty moppy and limp. But what they're lacking in perkiness, hopefully these wonderful shades of lavender will make up.

Share Your Style # 28

Hey There, and Welcome to Share Your Style #28

Can you believe we're winding our way down in this last week of August? Many of us are having a little cool down in the temps so we're really looking forward to Fall. No matter what the season, we all have common decorating dilemmas. One that can really slow down progress is "Styling Shelving". Here's a great post from Michelle from Dandelion Patina, with some great tips to make this a much easier decor task.

Grain Sack Fabric Tablerunners

It seems like life continues to be a series of small projects to accomplish, lately. Maybe that's because we've been able to get more things done with organization and unpacking all the million boxes we had, many of which were and still are marked "Decor". eeeck. I try not to overwhelm myself, but plug away at one thing at a time on my long list of "need to do". One of those projects has been getting a couple of tablerunners sewn for the little round table in the kitchen, and then the Dining Room.

Gettin' his Fall on...

I tried to tell Beaufort that it was a little too early for Fall decorating...

but he didn't listen.

He wanted to try on his new plaid scarf...

and then he wouldn't take it off.

so I had to humor him.
"OK, Beaufort, it's pretty close.
you can leave it on."

Do you or someone you know,
 have unreasonable feelings about Fall?
yeah, I know.

Painting a French Metal Basket with Chalk Paint

Today, I wanted to share a little project of mine "in process";
transitioning from Summer into Fall.
And since this is a French-y iron basket I will say, "En cours".
See, you get your French "phrase" for the day, 
and a little view of what I'm up to.
