In Lieu of Halloween

Our dining room  seems to be the heart of the house.... it reflects the  seasons  and family activity...

If it is autumn the black and white  linens are  usually   prominent...

The contrasting colors  just   brighten  every  tablescape...repeating colors     are echoed in the kitchen...

My inherited antique chicken  reminds me of  childhood gatherings around my mother's kitchen...
it's no wonder I  have  also inherited my mom's   love of  roosters.... like this fine fellow

  both these items   find their way into autumnal  vignettes  around my house..  simple  treasures   that  remind me of   family,  hearth, and home!

  1. Your home is lovely with the pretty treasures from your family! I love the black and white tablecloth for it is the perfect background for fall. Your cupboards are lovely with all your treasures. Have a great week!


  2. The dining room is certainly the heart of the home - a wonderful place to share family time! Lovely vignettes with gorgeous treasures! I appreciate you sharing your lovely post with A Return to Loveliness,
