Fall colours..

Welcome to my Fall post today..I rathered up some of my treasures that remind me of Fall..I hope you enjoy!

Richly coloured potted Mum's on our front step..aren't they a wonderful colour?

This little dish was in my Family for many years..

A sweet Sugar bowl decked in in the colours of Fall..

Some of my collection of vintage linens..

Copper coloured glass bowl..carnival glass I think.

The next little picture I have hanging in the entranceway..

Last but not least a nicely tarnished silver basket filled with acorns..

Thank you for stopping in today..Canada celebrates Thanksgiving Oct12th so I will use some of my treasures to decorate the table for our turkey dinner. Have a wonderful weekend ahead!




  1. Hi Wanda... Lovely fall goodies! Of course I am crazy for the linens!! But my favorite is that gorgeous silver basket with the handle, a lovely piece!! I have also been admiring all your gorgeous vanity items:-))) They are one of my favorite things to collect... there is something so decadent about a lady having a table full of pretty items to pamper herself:-))
    Have a great day!

  2. Hi Wanda...Enjoyed seeing your fall treasures. You know, the other day, I saw a ceiling in a bathroom at a bed and breakfast. It consisted of handkerchiefs, all tied together, hanging from the ceiling. I wish I could find that post and send you the address. It was SO COOL. Take care. Sincerely, Susan

  3. Hi Wanda,
    Oh how I love your linens!!! I have been so busy between coming on board as the design person for Shabby Cottage Studio and with opening my Etsy shop all in a few days!!!
    Not much of me
    I hope you're doing great!!!

  4. Hi Wanda! A sweet post you have here. Always love looking over the linens. Your floral pictures are beautiful, and amber carnival glass is my favorite. Have a wonderful holiday! Looks like you're all set!

  5. Hi Wanda,

    I love all the beautiful Fall decorations around your lovely home.
    The linens and all your dishes are gorgeous.
    Love the smiley face of the pumpkin.

    Happy Thursday

  6. Hi Wanda,
    I just love the ceramic pumpkins, the first one really made me laugh!
    The sugar bowl is very pretty and reminds of my grandma's Alfred Meakin dinner service. The blue and orange are the same although the design is different.
    All those vintage linnens - can you imagine the hours spent on making those? Today we do not use those items so frequently anymore, but they are so beautiful. Beautiful hand embroidered tableclothes have been replaced by easy to clean table mats, coasters, etc. It is such a pity and many tableclothes lie there waiting on the shelves to show their beauty ..... It is good that you show your pretties and proofs of craftmanship on here!
    Have a happy autumn day and thank you for sharing your family treasures with us!

  7. Wanda dearest, your Fall decor is gorgeous! I love the little plate that your family has treasured for years. I love things like this. And your mum...sigh..gorgeous, rich colors of Autumn.
    I have to tell that if I came to visit, you would have to put all the silver under lock and key, or you might see me trying to sneak that beautiful silver tray and basket out the door under my jacket!!! Lovely pieces and just sooo me!!!
    I so enjoy your blog Wanda, it is respite to my victorian soul.

  8. Oh, I was drooling/admiring all of those lovely fall-colored linens...very sweet and beautiful!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  9. Oh wow! What beautiful linens and fall goodies. I am your newest follower so nice to find you.
