There is this tree in my town…
it leaves me speechless…almost
it nearly defies description!
when the late afternoon sun hits the leaves,
it's as though they had been brushed with gold leafing
this ginkgo tree has delicate fan shaped leaves,
which are beautiful all alone,
but are captivating by the thousands
depending on the lighting, the leaves
are anywhere from buttery yellow to
it has become a tradition for us to drive by this tree-
it's in a older neighborhood, on a corner by a plain
little house...now part of our every Thanksgiving
so I want to thank you God-
for the golden Ginkgo tree
knowing it is just a tiny glimpse of
your GLORY and the Glory that awaits us in Heaven!
stay golden, pony boy…
Remember last week and the evolution
of my Fall tea cart decor’…
well- here is how it turned out!
I just love the way the colors worked together!
That’s passion fruit and Jonah Gold apples
in the yellow leaf bowl.
And I love the touch of Autumn that the little leaf dishes bring-
I did not have space for these lovely wooden bowls on the tea cart-
so they went in the middle of my harvest table!
Here is an up-close and personal look
at this BEAUTIFUL cut glass small cake pedestal-
Which will hold the red glass vase
with the wild things from my yard…
Like this textural millet- like stuff….
don’t know the name.
Here you see the corn husk wreath at the base of the cake stand
and the rose dessert bowls, as well as some dried roses.
Speaking of dried- I really love the look
this dried butterfly bush blossom !
before some of the pieces are filled in….
And above the final fall tea cart
for this Tuesday Tablescape!
This will probably have to last ’til
November- then it will REALLY be a Fall Look-
That’s when I’ll no doubt use the oranges and browns ,
the pumpkins & Indian corn-Woah I am getting hungry just
thinking about Thanksgiving and all the trimmings…
I think I’m gaining weight just picturing all the yummy food.
Better grab some sweet tea.
See you next time!
Happy Tablescaping until then!
P.S. The apples really were red-promise.
Well, we are having a few folks for
this year… not as many as Thanksgiving, but
more than Christmas.
I thought I’d better decide which dishes
to use & make sure I had enough
I love my rooster plates, they’re kinda Frenchie-
but I know I don’t have enough of them
Next option is/are these vintage yellow plates-
they are an incomplete set, but I only paid six dollors for all 12!!
I have enough salad plates to mix in with my
Antique White Miksa plates
and could use these brand new old napkins with them-
(I know it sounds odd- but the napkins
are vintage and were still in wrappings)
these bright yellow plates look great with flowers like this
so let me see…
Easter Eggs-periment number 1
I think this vintage Easter Postcard can be an inspiration
item for the yellow eggsperiment tablescape I’ll call -
A Blessed Easter
A quick peek at Mr. Tea Cart!
I have only two of the very old mache' eggs
and two hand-painted from my friend's Wedding via Kiev
I would love to find some more Mache’ Eggs…
maybe I can make them?
Me and the Bunnies will be back Tomorrow with tablescape # Two
which will be a little bit different look.
See you then!
