Autumn's Bounty of Color



For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.

Beautiful vignette, Pat...I have one of those acorn/oak leaf plate in a dark gold that I use to serve cookies on in the fall. I sure would like to come across a set of the brown ones. I will be up in your area tomorrow, if I get my errands done in Lawrence early enough!

Love your acorn dishes...they would so go with my squirrel and acorn tablescape that I did a few weeks ago...I don't have dishes!

Pretty tablescape and I love the brown acorn plates and the salad plates. I know that hymn 'Bringing in the Sheaves'. I had forgotten about it. Thanks for sharing..."we shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves". :)

One of my favorite hymns, I love that song. Seems like they don't sing too many of the old ones anymore, but I so love them. Your tablescape is gorgeous. I love your centerpiece, it is love and the little acorns are so pretty. Your dishes are lovely. The brown ones with the embossed acorns are so unique and the white ones with the pictures of wheat and acorns, wow, how stunning are they. Very pretty tablescape. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty
