Happy Thursday!

Can you believe we’re knocking on October’s door?

October is my favorite month . . . the leaves turn,

sweater weather arrives and for all things pumpkin!

    I want to be at the party in your shed. What a happy scene! I love that runner with its dimensional needlepoint, and I hadn’t noticed the ‘limbs’ protruding from those super cute owl stems until second glance. All the Vicki Sawyer creatures are so full of whimsy, and how many times will we all cry for Pier 1’s closing? Chloe is a star among the tablescape. All the limelight and surrounding additions make for a great welcome to October!

    Mary, your woodland friends wearing their party hats are a charming scene! The assortment of plaid plates and the embroidered runner are stunning additions to the potting shed party. I love the amber colored owl glasses. Wow, the DIY bark vases are still amazing. You did a great job in making those. Clover looks regal with her recent makeover and succulent attire. I still miss Pier 1, I could always find beautiful things that I didn’t need. Mary, visiting in your potting shed all dressed up for October’s (also my favorite month) arrival is a great start to a Thursday morning. Happy Autumn 🧡

    Mary, your woodland friends are so darn cute. I love how you named each one. Your inner child is precious. The embroidered leaf runner is lovely along with the plaid napkins. Your mine light hydrangeas are gorgeous in their transformed colors. Such a delightful setting to welcome Autumn.🍂🍁

    Good morning, Mary. I always like it when you use Vicki Sawyer’s plates. They make me smile! Came across a design of hers with a swan sporting a trio of macarons on her head! She is true to nature but adds her own twist; love it! Thanks for brightening my day.

    I would love to sit at your table in the potting shed! The forest animals are precious, especially the ones with the hats! You styled it all so beautifully!
    Thank you for another inspirational post!
    Happy Fall! 🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁

    Looks like Clover is shining as the star of your table, but all your woodland creatures are vying for their cuteness. I love that table runner, Mary. Why oh why did Pier 1 have to close it’s doors? So many of my favorite seasonal plates are from there. Those owl goblets are darling! I’m looking forward to October and hopefully cooler temperatures 😊🍂🍁

    Mary, The woodland friends plates (both sets) are a fall favorite. They look so cute with your succulent bunny. The table runner is beautiful! Your twig silverware is perfect as are the plaid plates. The goblet glasses are so pretty. The potting shed is all decorated up for fall. Hoping you are getting some fall temps. We’re still in the 90s but the humidity isn’t quite as bad. Happy Fall! Clara❤️

    Mary, this is a post full of delights ~ the woodland animals, all my favorite colors of autumn, and those adorable rabbits with the flourish of live succulents. Your garden shed is the perfect party backdrop. Always fun to see how you style it. Honestly, I’ve been scrolling up and down, up and down. I know I’ll be back for more. You never fail to present inspiration in a new and creative light for your readers.

  18. September 28, 2023 at 7:47 pm

    Oh Mary what a fun, fun table you have designed to welcome fall! I love all the woodland friends that you have gathered from Margaret and friends, Darby and Daphne, Chloe, and the owls are a hoot, so to speak. And of course, Clover steals the show! The table runner is so pretty and the limelights are gorgeous as they transition. It’s all just delightful!
