Tablescape Thursday for October 29

It is Tablescape Thursday at Susan's (or it will be later tonight Oct 28). SO BELOW --I decided to go for some cheerful reds this week (I love red!!) . I used my red goblets again. This time I used clear glass dishes so we could enjoy the fullness of the red plaid!! I love the glass dishes ---I love to see the tablecloth.

NOTE: in the pic above you can realize again why it is called spindle cottage. You can see some of them fore and aft and on the chairs. I also love the iron work in the corners of the doorway.

The napkins were from GW. The silverware is a very old set that used to belong to my mom.

I love Zinnias (spelling/??)--I have lots of them growing in my garden. I am so in love with their bright happy flowers. Next year I think I will fill one of my garden patches with them.

The vase was an old dark green glass one that I discovered lying about or is it laying ?? in my daughter's back yard--down not far from a creek. She said I could have it!!! I was so thrilled and spent a lot of time cleaning it!!

I love the apples in the silver bowl. I have kept this on the table this week---I love silver with the red.

Once last glance with the candle light. As I have said before this area in our house is one of our favorites for eating (when there are three of us) in the cooler weather. It is a cozy warm area.

  18. Lovely fall table. It's a nice change from Orange and green. The plaid reminds me of an old wool picnic blanket. Warmth and coziness. Perfect for a fall meal.

  21. Love that plaid, and your wreath. I read the post about the floors and can't believe that is just glue and polyurethane on the subfloor. It looks great in the photos. Does it have a lot of texture to it or just pattern? You might be on to the next big faux treatment!

  23. Love the red/black plaid! For some reason, the whole setting reminds me of fall fox-hunting of days of old and creates a cozy feel. I love the bright colours of the zineas (?sp) too!

  30. I'm afraid I've been a fluttering flybaby for a couple of years. My mother-in-law introduced me to the Fly Lady but I still struggle. I need to revisit my not so shiny sink and start over with the baby steps!

  43. Your tablescape is a perfect compliment to your Spindle cottage. Thank you for inviting us in to such a beautiful home, so very warm and inviting and I am sure reflects you. I couldn't imagine anyone not wanting to sit and enjoy. I loved the blog on your cups, all so, so beautiful I was envious. And your creative and sensitive spirit to the lace image was superb. Glad to have the opportunity to visit your blog. See you again soon.
