An Early Fall Evening and Candlelight

 We are enjoying the scent of banana bread fresh out of the oven and some lovely candlelight this evening.


I added some touches of Fall this week to our dining room table with a big white platter lined with burlap ribbon and filled with white candles. A wood berry vine in Autumn colours and pine cones fill in the spaces around the candles.



I also added a berry vine with rusty tin stars to the light fixture and two zinc lanterns with rippled glass on the table runner. The plaid wool blanket in cream, grey, red and pink on the parapet wall to the basement stairs was a thrift store find this week for $2.99. Regular visitors may notice that I put my collection of blue and white transferware in the white cabinet. 



I especially like the little mason jar tea lights on the window ledge. Lighting for photos in our dining room is always challenging and tonight is no exception : ) I will be sure to update the photos in daylight when I am home early enough in the day.


I love the neutral colours and textures of Fall and try to use natural elements throughout our home. And I also love pulling together seasonal decor with items we already have. The only 'new' purchase was the thrifted wool blanket. Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to check out my favourite blogs while enjoying a hot cup of tea and some of that banana bread.

I'm sharing this with..

  12. That's very pretty. I adore those lanterns. I was on the lookout for a wool throw, but couldn't find a good one in my town's thrift stores. Maybe next week.
