Fall Vignettes

Here are a few fall vignettes...above is in the family room. The 'Give Thanks' plaque, Amber Pedestal bowl and white books are thrift store finds...roses from our garden...the lamp I got at Lowes a couple of years ago for $20!! (Thought that was a great deal!)
The centerpiece for now in our formal dining room (I like to change it out a lot). The same material for the table cloth in the kitchen dining table I found recently at yet another thrift store. I just folded and used iron-on tape to hem the edges. It's in a rectangle and lets about a two inch border of the table show..
And the buffet in the formal dining room--2 years ago when Steve went on a motorcycle ride with 'the guys' to Nevada City, he ventured into an antique store there and spied it. Months later he took me up there and it was still there waiting for us! The owner gave us a great deal--we love American Oak antiques...
This is a cloche in it's usual state....
And here it is dolled up for fall!! Just added a few touches with some fall ornaments and some real acorns I covered in copper glitter...

Thank you so much for all your kind and wonderful comments on my Tablescape Tuesday post! You were all so sweet and I feel like I've made some new friends! Let's keep in touch!!
