September Coffee Table

I changed the items on the wood horseshoe
 tray that's on the family room coffee table. 
I removed the blue and white items and
added red books, baskets, a potted plant,
Summer Coffee Table
and wood boxes for a more fall-looking 
vignette. A wine themed place mat 
replaced the white battenburg lace.
 These are my Father's old binoculars 
being used as a bookend.
I remember always seeing them
during my childhood.
This small red pillar candle was too short 
for the cylinder hurricane, so I raised it 
on top of a jar and filled around it
 with coffee beans.  Pebbles, wine corks,
small acorns would also work.
Just a little fall puttering.

  2. I am coffee lover. I prefer kpi luwak coffee. It is very tasty and healthy. Strong coffee is my weakness.
