we are about to embark upon my favorite Season of the year
. . . Autumn!
My Traditional decor On Crooked Creektt,
in the upper level Living Room, consists primarily of reds, golds and greens.
So~o~o, this past week
I began making the Seasonal change~over
by re~arranging the china cabinets in the Dining Room.
The inspiration came from a recent visit
to one of my favorite Antique and Home Decor Shops
while making a visit to see my Dad in Fort Scott, Kansas!
After aquiring this adorable Pumpkin Tea Pot,
I knew it must be displayed where I could enjoy its daily viewing.
My Bordallo Pinheiro Majolica Collection fills this cabinet nicely.
Therefore, I decided to make each section of the shelves into vignettes!!!
We'll begin with the left side view of the built~in china cabinet.
This petite cauliflower tea pot,
along with the bee lidded cream and sugar set,
were vacation finds in Weston, Missouri earlier this Summer.
Notice how my Majolica plate collection
poses as a decorative backdrop for the vignette?
Many times, I find a piece while vacationing
only to find another piece on another trip
and am amazed how they all work well together.
This holds true to the above vignette,
the Pumpkin Teapot a $5 find in Iola, Kansas
while the lidded cream and sugar were Tuesday Morning finds
at Osage Beach, Missouri.
The Pumpkin Plate
was purchased at Heartland Antique Mall in Lebanon, Missouri
while the white pumpkins are two years ago Dollar Tree finds!
Now, onto the right side of the built~in china cabinet.
A few years ago,
I spotted this Majolica Blueberry Tea Set @ Iron Star.
This has been one of my favorite purchases from the Shop.
My newest Pumpkin Tea Pot
co~ordinates well with a lidded Pumpkin Tureen
found @ Heartland Antiques Mall in Lebanon, Missouri.
I grouped together a variety of pitchers in similar hues
to create a cohesiveness and to add subtle textures.
My Dad gifted me with the large brown pitcher,
the honey~hued rimmed pitcher was purchased in Salina, Kansas
as was the basket~weave bee design creamer.
The creamer was purchased to co~ordinate
with these adorable salt and pepper shakers I purchased locally
@ Roadhouse Antiques here in Derby, Kansas.
I'm thrilled with the addition of Autumnal hues
in my Dining Room built~in china cabinet!
( The before photos can be seen at my original blog On Crooked Creek/Coloring My World here)
Carrying a similar color palette to the vignette below,
I've added my honey hued with brown rimmed chili pepper plates
to my wrought iron plate stand surrounded by
select pieces of my bee collection.
Instead of a runner,
I chose to alternate three placemats to ground the vignette.
"Mr. Ed's" pine box houses our everyday Sage green dinnerware
combined with my favorite Knife . Fork . Spoon dishtowel.
For ease of accessibility, vintage juice glasses rimmed in green
hold individual forks, knives and spoons.
Autumn, my favorite Seaon of the year,
has just begun to make its way into the decor On Crooked Creektt!
The addition of Autumnal Hues,
combined with my Bordallo Pinheiro Majolica Collection,
should span the season from Summer~to~Autumn
with just the needed amount of color.
Until next time. . .
