Fall Tabletops

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalms 119:105

I finally have my home autumnized! It took me longer than it does most years. I try to leave everything decorated for summer thru Labor Day but this year (like we have the last few) we vacationed over the week of Labor Day. I came back to a busy week at work (IRS deadline) and it just seemed I didn't have the energy to bring fall into the house. Over the weekend I finally found the motivation I needed.

I gave a lot of thought to how I wanted to use what I already had to decorate. The above verse kept coming to my mind as I thought of fall decorating. I knew I wanted to revamp my summer cloche display that had some of my vintage bibles in it and since I have a collection of vintage oil lamps, I wanted to use them into the decor also. I worked in a few.

In the dining room, I decorated my hutch with a amber glass pumpkin, some ironstone pieces and a stack of leaf plates.

My vintage radio sports some lovely tea items. With cooler weather, the tea pots get more of a workout!

The apples from last weeks tablescape are gone and I've reworked the display with a charger (from Walmart) and some pinecones and such.

The entry bench holds some fall issue magazines and some quilted pumpkins.
