You know how I love my wormy chestnut, and I love using it in different ways.
I found an old board to use as a runner over a striped cotton runner I made.
I actually started out with three blue Mason jars containing votive candles, then decided that was too predictable and chose family silver pieces to hold different candles.
Hydrangeas from my mother's garden, Rome apples, pine cones and leaves cut from sheet music dress the old board up a bit.
Vintage "Brown Drip" dinner plates by Hull are perfect for a warm, autumn table.
With vintage linen embroidered napkins, peach Indiana Glass "Whitehall" glassware, and vintage Oneida silverplate flatware, "Meadowbrook," the casual setting is complete.
Overcast autumn days are perfect for candle light.
I used different sized candles and surrounded them with coffee beans.
Autumn is a wonderful time to gather around the table for a meal, conversation, and in our case, homework:-)
