September Coffee Table Vingette

The living room coffee table
is dressed simply for Fall.
 I filled the large cloche with found pinecones 
and flipped it over onto a round silver tray.
That was the starting off point. 
From there it was easy to find things to add.
A silver tray, teapot, sugar, creamer and
sterling candlesticks were added.
 One of my vintage teacups.
 An old book found at an antiques fair.
I bought it because
of the name of the authoress, "Rita".
Antique wire rimmed spectacles.
Well-worn yellowed pages tell their story.
Darby and Joan by "Rita"
London 1860

Cheers!

    1. Interesting. I'm reading that Darby and Joan -book, almost finished. My copy is not so old, but I suppose about hundred years old, anyhow.
