A touch of Fall

This set of dishes were my mom's.....purchased piece by piece at the super market....they were given to my daughter and someday she will have to come pick them up!!!
I am using a black tablecloth, white linen napkins, pumpkin rings from Hobby Lobby, paper leaves under the fruit cups....and my mom's silverware.....


The fruit cups are actually from the 1950's.....they came with JIf peanut butter in them, and my mom bought one every few weeks......we ate a lot of pb&j sandwiches!!
Shakers are part of my milk glass collection....
Butter dish from TJMaxx.....I have to stay away from there!!!    Butter knife was my grandmother's....
That's all for now.....I will be very busy loading my website for the holidays, not to mention crafting and sewing till the wee hours......happy Fall y'all......

Hi Cleo! Pretty table! I love the fruit dishes, you used to be able to get some really fun things at the store or by sending away for them! I remember juice glasses from jelly and mugs from Nescafe coffee! I'm sure I'll think of more:@)

Oh how lovely. Your dishes are such a wonderful heirloom. I love the few pieces I have from my mom, so I know these are so special. Your centerpiece is stunning. Everything looks wonderful on the black tablecloth. So pretty. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

Hi My daughter lives in Irondeqoit and is the head cook at the high school. They have built a cottage near Cedar point so are up every weekend. I was a doll maker porcelain for 17 years did craft shows. Your tablescape was very festive and loved your crafts. You should do our craft show. It is a money making show in Aug.
