Fall Bird Dishes
I must admit that these little bird dishes
are probably my favorite.
I was lucky enough to get four little dessert plates at Marshall's.
Here is what my dining room looks like as seen from
the seating area of the great room.
Do you recognize those plaid tablecloth draperies from my Texas home? For this house I added the dropcloth panels
to keep out the strong afternoon sun.
See the layered effect of the curtains?
In the pictures above and below you can see
how the curtains look when pulled back.
You can see why I need them because those
windows are on the West side of the house.
I have two of these larger cloches.
I love this cutwork leaf table runner.
I pull these little faux acorns out every Fall.
They mix nicely with the little pine cones.
I have quite a collection leaf dishes
and have tried to pass on any getting more.
He must be wondering why all the interest in the tabletop...
when there is no food!
Do you see what I see?
Well of course, more little birds.
Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE them?
Even the real variety!
The little tea light bird is from DollarTree a few years ago.
Those wonderful napkin rings were
a super clearance deal that "made my day"!
I love all the bright colors in that rooster and platter.
This colorful soup tureen is from The Cracker Barrel restaurant.
I loved shopping in their gift store.
These sweet little brown and yellow birds
are a salt and pepper set.
Can't have fall without sunflowers!
How do you like the filler at the base of the candle?
Yep, those are just strings that were left over
from the fringed table runner.
Here is a closer shot of those "custom" draperies!
Please don't judge me for my use of tablecloths and dropcloths
for my "custom" window treatments :)
Of course Buddy had to get back in the picture!
Does your little fur baby try to get in
the middle of every "photo shoot"?
Thanks for visiting me.
