A touch of fall to inspire.

What does fall flowers have to do with spiders?
I was in the mood to play with fall dishes and
it just seemed like a natural combination.
Why is it collectors of any type always
love great dishes?
Even in this tiny cottage I still
have to have lots of dishes, for all
occasions or any occasion.

A wonderful green vintage jeweled
spider pin looks great on the Zinnia (Zienna).

I enjoy using the antique horn pewterware 
especially with vintage pumpkin plates and 
      brown spongeware.            

My post on August 30th featured fall Zinnias.
Yes folks this gal got her monies worth.

I finally had to toss them today.
Now grant you they are hanging on
by a thread but they did last for this post.

I am heading over to Dear Little Red House weekly linky party,
Mosaic Monday,  drop by for a visit.

Pour yourself a glass of something cool
and join me in a toast.
Happy 100 Followers to ME!

I am glad you dropped by, thank you for
visiting, please take a minute to comment.
Your comments make my day.
Blessings,  Kathy
