You will notice a lot of the same pieces used over and over again in different combinations. I learned from my mother that it's better to have a few "good" things than a lot of "not so good" things. Now-- that's not to say she does not have a lot of dishes, it's just that they are all "good" dishes! I inherited that love from her, I just don't have as many yet!! I try to change things up with different fabrics and accessories.
This week I'm using my Italian Countryside again, but I made a new runner out of more fabulous fabric from a local store. My inspiration was the fabric then I brought out the warm autumn colors with leaves from my mom's Japanese Maple. Hope you like it...
This arrangement is Japanese Maple leaves, Forsythia and dogwood branches.
Thanks for coming by! I hope you are inspired to use things you have around you inside and outside!
