With my husband off on a trip my table is bare, he tends to use it as his computer desk and it is normally covered with his work, much to my dismay.
I have found an inexpensive flat screen t.v. in a good size to place on our office wall to lure him back in there. He claims he does not like being tucked back there to work but when I mentioned putting up a t.v. his eyes lit up so I know it is having that constant noise as his backdrop that keeps him in our living area.
So that being said while he is gone I have set the table to be pretty for a bit.
This is the table we had built together nearly 2 years ago, go here for that post if you wish.
We are getting ready to build another, I have a few changes I want to make in the size but this one has worked great and I still love it.
I have some transferware dishes I love, some green burlap I intend to make a couple hand painted table runners from, a bit of vintage linen and some fresh from the garden flowers! All perfect for a Fall Tablescape and it was all on hand!
I was dinking around with different effects in PicMonkey so forgive the discrepancies.
I have some old crochet placemats that I picked up at a thrift store. I had though to use them all but decided one in the center was enough. I wanted the vintage linen napkins to show up well against the green burlap table cover.
It was not the best lighting at the time but I had to go with it.
Even with the less than stellar lighting this looks way more inviting that a laptop computer and all its paraphernalia!
A frosted mason jar is a fitting vase for the splash of Fall colors in the casual bunch of flowers, I love the little touch of white from the miniature roses tucked in.
Saturday is the first day of Autumn and I am prepping my garden slowly but surely. I am collecting seeds of hollyhocks, rudbeckias, daisies and whatever else I find that has ripe seeds.
Now I am heading out to the studio to do a couple more painting videos. The ones I made before I am not pleased with so stayed tuned. I am definitely not talented in the videoing department!
