Decor and Hydrangea Table Scape...
Each year I seem to acquire a new pumpkin of some sort or another. Here is a mélange of some of my favorites. I have them sitting on the formal dining table. We don't seem to use the dining room as much as in years past. Instead of larger formal gatherings and dinner parties we tend to have smaller more casual gatherings of friends. And we tend to congregate in the kitchen and great room.
This lovely HARVEST banner was created a few years ago by my friend Theresa (no blog). This year as I was pondering where to hang it so it wouldn't get in Mr. C's way I discovered it fit perfectly on the dining room hutch which is right near the dining table displaying my pumpkins. I love it here and enjoy it every day as I pass by. Thank you Theresa for this lasting gift.
I had a piece of home décor fabric which I just loved and it reminded me of my favorite hydrangeas. So I got out the rotary cutter and sewed these table mats. I have my dried hydrangeas in a vase sitting on the table atop one of the mats and I like this look.
You have already heard about these chairs but now I can attest to just how comfortable they truly are. The table is getting uglier every day and we debate how we will deal with the table. It is very good quality and is structurally sound. I like the table for its size and purpose here in the kitchen East bay window. I want to paint it Annie Sloan chalk paint in a black tone. Mr. C wants it painted the correct way by taking it all apart and sanding and so on. Not for me to tackle. So we debate...
Still dry here and having some windy days. No really cold snap even though the nights are quite chilly. Autumn leaves are turning colors but nothing spectacular. Falling leaves and pine needles and cedar tree seedling pods are making their usual mess everywhere. Mr. C did a huge raking job.
From those of you living in Spring now your green lush gardens and flowers are spectacular. I enjoy seeing them and reminding me of Spring we will eventually have once again.
Creative Bliss from sherry of createology...
I seem to be signing my name like this more and more and liking it quite a lot. It reminds me of times gone past when people were recognized by their name and region or clan or such. I quite like being sherry of createology.
I am hoping to do some sewing today. I will be sharing what I am sewing very soon.
