Tablescape Thursday - Fall, Fall, Fall!

It's Tablescape Thursday sponsored by Susan at BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH!

Photobucket

I finally have my house all falled up! Since it is Tablescape Thursday, I will start with the Dining Room and those not interested won't have to follow the rest of the tour!

If you saw my post last week, you will recognize the china (Spode Woodland Turkey), but this year I am using a gold tablecloth (After Christmas clearance at Target), the paper runner with the Chinese lantern design, and burnt orange napkins(clearance at Tuesday Morning) with red napkin rings. (I know that red and orange are supposed to clash, but they look good together as fall leaves and in my turkeys, so why not?) My goblets were from Ross Simons years ago and the sterling was my grandmother's wedding silver, Betsy Patterson Engraved. The copper chargers are new and from Target.

Here is my Dining Room mantle. The silk Chinese lantern stems were from Michael's. As you can see I have quite a turkey collection. The copper pumpkins are new from Target.

On the mantle is a white pumpkin with a Harvest Moon face. I got the idea from Country Living magazine.

We have a lot of pheasants on the bar in the Billiards Room and my stained glass turkey is one of my very favorites.

In our Sunroom, we have a tea set with an Indian corn teapot and a pumpkin painting by my younger daughter.

Last on the tour is my husband's study. As you may remember, he is a reenactor, so there is a military history theme to his study.

Ignore the dust on the Library Ladder - it's not good to overclean antiques. Ha Ha!!!!

Well that's what I have pictures of - believe it or not I have more decorations! And when October gets here the Halloween has to be added!!!!

Happy Tablescape Thursday to all! :D Jewel
