Fall Stuff!

I am happy to say that Fall, or Autumn if you prefer,
has arrived in earnest!  Virginia is an enigma state...
we're considered the South but the weather can be hot
like in Florida (lived there) and cold like in Connecticut 
(born there).  Like everyone, we take the good with the bad. 
Hope to drive out to the mountains soon to enjoy some fall beauty.  

 I want to show your something I got.
How adorable are these coasters, aka mug rugs?

I found them on Etsy and they reminded me of vintage tablecloths!
Cherries are a favorite on those 1950's tablecloths.  I just had
to order some. So adorable!  Got a few other designs too, so I'm
giving a "shout out" to my new friend Tricia, and a link to her shop
so you can enjoy her talents.  She has LOTS of  handmade goodies!

Went to a small local auction on a rainy Saturday, vowing not
to buy anything.  Ha!  I couldn't resist these puzzle games. 
Made by R. Journet & Co., London, England
 From the 1940's and sold at Abercrombie & Fitch.  

Those old graphics are the cutest!


Could I leave Vera napkins behind?  Of course not!
Beautiful designs in fall colors.  In my Etsy shop.


And leave it to Mr. Retro to find this
1974 limited edition print for a few dollars.

It's a keeper and looks great in our living room.  
Wish I could read the artist's name.  Any guesses?    

Leave you with a couple sweet vintage vases, 
Roseville and Hull, also in my Etsy shop!

Have a great rest of the week!
