Delicious Autumn

It's here, at last, wonderful and delicious Autumn!!!  Goodbye to nasty summer and the never ending heat!!!  At least now if it is warm during the day, ah, the nights are sooooo cool!!!  Went for a walk late last night, and it was nippy, the damp was so heavy, the dew was dripping off my car and the mailbox......the grass just sparkled in the moonlight, what a delight to see!!!  I slept like a baby curled up in an old quilt with my cat!!!

Finally finished my vignette on the buffet......I know you will think me silly to make such a crowded and packed display......but its been years since all the yellow ware has been out and I miss it!!!  My home is so small and there is no mantle, so display space is at a premium here.  Hope you enjoy my collection, the only thing lacking is the Holy Grail of yellow ware.....the rolling pin!!!  Maybe when I win the lottery....lol....



The small pitcher is actually Majiloca, the fancy end of yellow ware......


These small bowls are for pudding.....




The flat bottomed bowls with flared sides are called nappies and were used for baking and mixing.  The two corn molds were used for molding food such as puddings.



Some molds and bowls have a white interior.


The small cups are custard cups......I have a dozen of those and of the pudding bowls, they look nice stacked in a hutch......



This is a rice bowl, I think they would mold the rice in here and invert for serving.




And look who's here again!!!!





Some chestnuts for Fall....


Hope you are not in tears by now......such a long post!!!  Thanks for letting me share this with you...more to come soon.......happy Fall!!!

Oh, I love your display. It reminds me of the smells of pies baking with lots of cinnamon, and the warm sparkle of a fireplace. Warm and cozy! Thanks for sharing.

I think your Fall buffet looks really beautiful! And why not load it up with your favorite collection if it looks that pretty!

Loving the cooler weather too!

Hi Cleo, I love your fall display. It is my favorite time of the year for traveling. I love to take the walk and hear the leave crunch under my feet and what fun to have a leaf fight with the grandkids when we are suppose to be raking leaves. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs Your Missouri Friend.

I so love this display. I can relate to what you said about the weather. We are just into Spring here and the forecast is for an extremely hot hot Summer. Not looking forward to it at all.

What a great display! I popped over from the Tablescaper as I was intrigued - I'd never heard of yellow ware...I LOVE it :o) Not known for minimalism I think the vignette is gorgeous and most certainly not overcrowded.
I'm sure to be back for more...
Best wishes

Your yellow ware is beautiful, you have some many pretty pieces. Is the rolling pin hard to find? I love the stool decorated and all the lovely touches. I love cool at night too.
