Tablescape Thursday

Hello dear Bloggers! I'm finally back! I meant to be away for only 2 weeks, but it turned out to be 2 months instead. Shame on me! I won't bore you with the hundreds of reasons why, let's just say life happened. So without further ado, I'll ease back into my blogging routine with my fall tablescape. Enjoy!







Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll be visiting other participants of Tablescape Thursday, hosted by Susan @ BNOTP. Make sure to do the same. Thanks for stopping by the Lace and Ivy Cottage and please say hello!


Til next time,

Welcome back. Your tablescape is just stunning. I love all of the dishes and your beautiful pumpkins and gourds are gorgeous. I really like the use of the 3 candlesticks also. Everything is just beautiful. Hugs, Marty

Love the colours of your 'scape! The browns look so great with your dishes/accessories. Your terrific little soup pots/tureens remind me that I could use some French onion soup bowls I have for something similar - thanks for the inspiration! I would love to have a Thanksgiving meal at that table!

I love the simple elegance of your table.

The pumpkins and gourds are really nice.

nannykim/ spindle cottage said...

cool--those little soup bowls remind me of two things--French Onion soup and also little baked bean pots! Both would be nice in the fall---Like the way you have the cloth (or tablecloth--whatever) on the table too--Nice.

I can't remember visiting your blog before. How did I miss this? I participate in all the same memes.

I am absolutely drooling over that big table. I have always said that I would like to have a table that seats 10 people. However, my DR isn't that big, so on holidays, I just set up a folding table at the end and continue the table into the dining room.

I scrolled down and looked at all your posts. You have a lovely blog. I am adding you as a favorite.
