Fall Tabletops

Monday, September 20, 2010
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.

Posting to Marty's Tabletop Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by!

    Everything just looks and feels like Fall in your home...I'm sure it smells like it as well with all that delicious Fall cooking...I only wish I could get into as well..but we are still in Temps of 100degrees..so it makes it quite difficult..Maybe soon..

    Oh...I forgot to mention I love the Vintage Bibles...

  1. Cara said...:

  1. Looks great Gail, I love your "be joyful" pumpkin and the cute quilted ones!

    It all looks very nice. The picture of the piano brings back memories of my childhood. We always decorated the back of the piano. And thank you for the idea on the leaf shaped plates. I have some as well. And I never think to just stack them as decoration.

    It looks so nice and cozy, Gail. You have a lot of beautiful pieces displayed!
    So that was a good deal on that Nordic Pan wasn't it? There was no price on it, and when it rang up 4.99 I did the happy dance!
    I know I don't need another, but they will get passed down, and perhaps they will think of their crazy Nana when they use it!

    I love the white dishes. Enjoyed looking. I am still not quite through with mine.
    Have a great week.

  1. Hi Gail...

    I think all of your fall decorating is lovely. My FAVORITE part is definitely those Bibles under the cloche. That's just plain beautiful!

    Your autumn decor is lovely. I love the jar candles on the piano. I also love your cloche with the vintage bibles, that must really be a large dome! Wow! Your autumn leaf plates will make such great tablescapes for fall. Beautiful!

  1. Barbara said...:

    Oh, you have such pretty things! I could see so much of this fitting in perfectly in my home. I also have a "we gather together" sign that I stitched. Your lovely vignettes have reminded me that I didn't come across that yet. I need to find it! I especially like your cloche.

  1. AnnaMarie said...:

  1. Sue said...:

    You have definitely become "fallen" as Shelia from Notesongs would say! Love all your warm decor. I love the picnic baskets under your bench and the bible under the cloche.
