I've been a bit of a busy bee lately buzzing through writing the first draft of my second novel, so I haven't had a ton of time to post. But I have had some fun decorating the dining room for Fall with some of my recent finds.
It started with wanting to use the Croscill tablecloth and valences I found at the Goodwill Outlet Store a few weeks back. The fabric was so nice and the colors had just the right feel for autumn. The tablecloth was a perfect fit on my round table, while the valence got easily repurposed as a mantle scarf.
The colors seemed to work nicely with some of the Roseville pottery I've uncovered at surprisingly affordable prices lately.
Here's a view of the mantle and table together. I went with 70s era Carnival glass for the table setting.
You can see a close up of the table. The plates and the goblets and candlesticks are not the same pattern, but the color is close so I think it works.
The candlesticks are actually a new find for me. They're a Harvest Grape pattern and match the goblets. I got the pair for $5, which seemed to be a pretty good buy.
The dinner plates are called Anniversary and they're made by Jeanette Glass. I bought these a while ago and I love the many iridescent colors they reflect back.
Wishing you all the bounty of the harvest at your dinner table and in your thrifting adventures!
