my question is . . . why do we even have to mess with summer?
sure, it feels good . . . for about a week—I enjoy the flowers, the green grass and the pool. after about a week, though, the flowers start to fade, the grass goes brown and the pool is no longer refreshing.
but, ahhhhhhh, autumn!
the temps have dipped—ever so slightly—I am in full-on free FALL!
I’ve decided to adopt a new rule of social etiquette. not only will I not wear white shoes after Labor Day (well, actually, ever), but I will wear my cowboy boots beginning the day after Labor Day. here they are—they make me smile!
but, the reason you’ve tuned in, however, is the home décor, right?
below is a pic focused on our signature mixed-pattern silver plate flatware, a Farmhouse soy wax candle and a celery vase filled with acorns.
my new favorite cookbook, The Romantic Prairie Cookbook, our iron rooster napkin rings, and a favorite cheese dome on on a willow tray.
the beautiful new, ironstone pitchers with wheat and ivy patterns are difficult to distinguish from their vintage inspiration.
I have a particular penchant for brown transferware . . .
one of our uncomplicated, but favorite displays—the dried hydrangeas in our beautiful urn along with vintage books in our French wire baskets and our embellished globe.
ooh, that cheese dome! and the owl pitcher (anything cuter?); in the background a reproduction sugar mold.
here, the hint of the door I painted in homage to the Café de Flore in Paris.
apothecary jars, a mouse and moss.
we hope these subtle changes throughout the shop will help you make plans for transitioning your home into this wonderful season. (there are more to come . . . thus, the “part one”)
now to get to work transitioning my own home . . .
thanks for your indulgence!
