Happy Tuesday, dear friends! Fall decorating has been in full swing this past week at my house. Today, I am excited to share a little spot in my entry. This space houses my French cabinet and shelf and a few other little treasures. It is the perfect spot to add seasonal touches.
Each season, I like to change the china residing in the shelf to create a new look that reflects the season at hand. For autumn, Johnson Brother’s Friendly Village was the perfect choice. It is a favorite of mine.
A fall pick with sunflowers, pumpkins, and fall berries sits perfectly in front of the large platter.
In the pitcher, I chose a simple bouquet of bittersweet and pheasant feathers. Mr. Bleu is an avid pheasant hunter and always brings me feathers from his hunting adventures.
For an additional touch of autumn, sweet little green pumpkins are perched in teacups.
You might even spy a rooster or two standing watch.
I wanted to share with you a recent estate sale find. Last spring, Mr.Bleu and I attended an estate sale of one of Charles Faudree’s dearest friends. (In coming days, I will be sharing another special piece that I purchased from this sale. I can’t wait to show it to you.) The sales are always chaotic with people snatching and grabbing. If you want something, you must grab the price tag to purchase it. It’s crazy! On this particular sale, Mr. Bleu and I split up. He went upstairs, and I shopped downstairs. After we had shopped our areas, he came downstairs with a smile on his face and told me he had purchased me a chair that looked just like something I would love. He was so proud, and I was so happy when I saw the French needlepoint chair. It was gorgeous and in perfect condition. I am so blessed to be married to such a sweet and thoughtful man. He knows me all too well!
My sweet friends, as always, your visits make my day. I wish you a most beautiful day doing the things you love! Take care!
