Fall Tablescape

Momentarily last week, there were a few hints of Fall, but no more.  Where did it go?  It's Summer again with temps in the high 90s.  
I'm still in a bit of a fog after a 2-day migraine, while Mr. 2805 has spent 3 days at the NHRA  drag races here this week end.


This afternoon, I put my Fall cocktail table together.  You have seen my botanicals in apothecary jars before.  Dried quince,  pomegrantes, and  ripen flowers. 



 Nature gives us so many pretty natural things to use.  I keep these and use them over and over for Fall.



But something was missing, a pumpkin.
I called my local WM to see if they had pumpkins in yet.  Yes, they said they had green and white ones too!  I got so excited, dropped my pajamas and took off.  Only one white one existed, but now it was mine. 



 I placed it on a stack of orange books which seem appropriate for this time of year.



I had  scrunched up a fringed table scarf
a few days ago when the table complained of cool nights.  That story has certainly changed.  "Take this off!  It's too hot".  




Then I explained, "It's like wearing high heels.  You look pretty, even if it hurts.  Cowgirl up!"

Until next time, Honey

Potpourri Party #42

Hi everyone!  Wow! September is flying by!
We have a ton of highlights today, so settle back with a 
cup of tea or coffee, or maybe a glass of wine!
There is so much to enjoy!  A note to those who link early, if you don't stop back by to see some of the later links, you are really missing out!  Also, we have a lot of new people linking to Potpourri Friday!  I know you will want to make them welcome.


I did a little more Fall decorating this week. My mantel is done, but I imagine it will be tweeked a bit in the next few days!


I didn't actually pimp any pumpkins, but some of my pictures insisted on playing along.
