Doing Some Fall Sprucing!

Well FALL finally feels like it has arrived!
Time for some Fall cleaning, cleaning out, and
sprucing up at our house.

We had a major auction score!  Not the best photo, 
I think my hand was shaking as we were getting ready to bid.  😏

 5-drawer dresser, ladies vanity, pouf stool, blanket chest, nightstand, 
and double bed.  Amazingly, we won it for the opening bid!  

Vintage Heywood Wakefield in the Crescendo pattern,
which was only made between 1938-1940.  This was
the transition era from Deco to Modern style. 

Ok, back to the guest room...

Gorgeous chest

  More gorgeous vanity with original mirror
(wonder how that survived!) & pouf stool.

We hung up all the art we had stashed.  Five of these were
done by amateur-hobby-artist me!  

I found this quilt style cover made from vintage fabrics, even 
bark cloth, a couple years ago.  Perfect for this bed!  

Here is the blanket chest with the seat recovered in
bark cloth fabric, which I scored at an estate sale for $1.
We have to find a place for it, as our guest room is small 
and sadly we ran out of space.  I think there is a nook
in the dining room it will fill.  Too pretty to hide!  

We had to move my tablecloth shelf to the dining room, 
which is great...I get to see my beauties all the time!  
Oops!  My ironing pile sneaked in the corner of the photo.  

I'll finish with a photo of my fall table ...
Sweet Startex S & P theme

...and tablecloth ladder.  
Hope you enjoyed peeking in &
thanks for stopping by!  

PS/ I know it's early, but buyers are interested in
Christmas Linens already, so I've added a few to my shop!

Wilendur Roses Shabby Table!

A gray and rainy day here has prompted me to cheer up
my dining room table.  Yellow roses, used and faded,
still make a beautiful table!

Lovely used and faded Wilendur "Royal Rose"
in the Yellow colorway.  

 Irresistible thrift store plates, "Lemon Tree", 
Johnson Brothers, England.


Solid dishes are my trusty Hazel Atlas Platonite Glass 
dishes from the 50's.  


Close-up of the place setting.  It saddens me that 
more and more folks no longer set a nice table.  
I love vintage tablecloths & dishes way too much to stop!  

 Sweet place setting close up.  


I hope you are also enjoying setting tables!  
Thanks for visiting!

Hello September!

Welcome September, the month that
brings us Fall or Autumn!  

I'm ready for some Fall colors, and some end of
Summer lovelies too.  

 Beautiful bold flowers, perfect for fall.  Made in Germany.

 Harvest Apples!

In Gold and Blue, of course! 

Last of the summer flowers, so pretty!

Trailing Morning Glory


Can't forget the "Mod" style.

Hope you enjoyed looking at my vintage tablecloths!
