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 getting more. 

Oh Buddy!

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.

Hi sweet Bunny Jean!
Your table setting is stunning. I love the cloches, the plates are stunning and I would love them too! Your custom draperies look lovely, I like the layers myself. The tureen is gorgeous and how you decorated it, along with the hutch. Lovely. Big hugs,

Love your little Buddy..such a sweetie. Your house looks professionally decorated--it is just a lovely picture of fall that belongs in a magazine. Love those little bird candle holders. Your cloches are so pretty too. Have a good day!

Your dining room is looking really lovely and fally. I have those bird plates, and love them. My fav things are the napkin rings, bird tea lights and that beautiful soup tureen.

Everything looks so pretty. Love the colors you are using. I kept looking to see all of your little bird things. I liked the way you even used the leftover threads in your decor. The more I look, the more pretty things I see. I'm going to take another look right now.

Hi Bunny Jean,
Love your Fall table! Your collection of leaf dishes mixed among your sweet birds is so fun. I too have a fetish for birds. Your draperies work great and I love using drop cloth. Looks almost like linen. Thanks for sharing your lovely table and hutch with Share Your Cup,
