English Churchill wildlife plates featuring pheasants and deer and turkeys, to name a few...
I unloaded almost everything and pulling from my china stashes....I started creating layers of fall abundance....
I love this majolica-style pitcher with the leaf design....
(sorry for the blurred pic)
And speaking of pheasants....
(I realized I must have a pheasant-fetish! Say that three times fast.)
... a beautiful pheasant pitcher takes center stage in front of the pheasant plate.
I love how the browns and golds and rusts are accented against the black of the cabinet.
This year's Fall theme throughout my home is "Rustic Elegance." For example, dried hydrangeas are paired with crystal, amber grape clusters.
Thanks to my dear friend, KD at Southern Whimsy, I was "encouraged" to buy the Spode breadbox you see here. I found this a few weeks back at TJMaxx marked for $149.99, and asked the manager if she would give me a discount and she gave me 30% off. Yoohoo!
Isn't it exquisite? And what is on the top of the lid? You guessed it...a pheasant. :-)
I filled an amber-colored compote dish with acorns and a candle.
I just love these copper-colored, mercury glass acorns.
This cabinet just glows when all the candles are lit.
Hopefully by end of week after we get back from the mountains, I will be able to finish my breakfast room table and share that, as well.
To see more Before and After's on Met Monday...please visit Susan at
Between Naps on the Porch. You will be wonderfully inspired.
Until then....have a great Fall week everyone. ~Barb
