Fall Is In The Air!

Sometimes it's hard for me to transition from one season to the next when we have to start putting our fall merchandise and decorations out so early! 

Thankfully, this arrived in our mail yesterday and it got my spirits up and I began to see that I WILL enjoy Fall and all that it has to offer!

After all, it is when we get to start enjoying college football games, putting out pumpkins and mums and enjoying some much needed cooler weather!

As well as planning our Thanksgiving menus and guest lists!

I was so pleased to see that this photo shoot taken in the shop by the great people at Tea Time magazine turned out so well and truly showcased some of our most special pieces of antique transferware as well Alison's gorgeous flower arrangement in an antique sugar mold.

I didn't even notice right away that they had also showcased some of our pieces in other parts of the magazine. 
I really like how the pictures turned out. 

I'm loving the rust colored chargers underneath our antique plates! Unfortunately, those are not from our shop! They certainly add a pop of color to the table setting!

I thought this table was really pretty as well. It was in the article right after ours if you come across a copy of this magazine. It is just now out on the shelves.

As you can see we do have a lot of items that work really well with fall tablescapes!

And we even have our twig Acorns out for all to see in our window display! 
Yes…we are definitely trying to get in the fall spirit!

So, the next question is when to start decorating at home? Have you started planting for fall? Or thought about which color pumpkins you will use this year? I'm always so torn! I love the vivid colors but I'm also very drawn to the shades of white, salmon and even green.

No matter which you choose it will definitely signal that fall is truly here once I start seeing the pumpkins on the patios and front steps of my friends houses and in the shop windows that I love so much!

And it will definitely make me thankful for this season in life and for the fact that we celebrate such a wonderful American holiday.


  1. Hi, Carolyn ~
    Many congratulations on being featured in Tea Time. The shop looks divine and so autumnal. Your collection of transferware is beautiful and perfect for this time of year. I'll be getting white pumpkins this year....surprise, surprise! :)

  3. Carolyn, this is so exciting for you! And, I'm ready for Fall too. Did you see our By Invitation Only post yesterday? If not, please come over. I'm overwhelmed with life right now awaiting the birth of my son's 3rd child (and last). Pins & Needles time. xx's
