Branching Out

Adding rustic fall touches is as easy as 
 going out in the yard 
and picking up a few dry branches.
To dress them up use a silver champagne bucket for a vase.
two jumbo pinecones
 Easy.
The silver coffee and tea service sits in front 
 on the antique cobbler's bench.
Wine corks collected in a silver wine caddy.
White pumpkin S&P
I've wanted to find a room to do a little 
fall decorating in neutrals. I found it on 
the cobbler's bench in the living room alcove.
This will satisfy my RDS from my last post 
with two of my favorite things...
....twigs and silver.

Cheers!

  1. This is beautiful, Rita!!! I love the rustic, gnarly look of the branches as a backdrop to the glimmering silver. It's perfect! It has a wonderful, sophisticated, "grown-up" autumn feel to it!

  8. This looks beautiful, I love the white pumpkins with the silver. You would love curly willow to work with. If you buy it from a florist it can stay alive in water.
    Try it. Kathy

  38. A man went to the theatre for the concert. At the ticket office, he said to the ticket seller:
    - Please sell me a half of ticket!
    -I don't understand what you said. Why is a half of ticket? - asked the ticket seller.
    - Because my left ear has been deaf from last year. I can hear with only one ear.
