Dining Room Delights

 I usually set my formal dining room table  with dishes but this month I decided to just use the cornucopia centerpiece and a few little accessories.  The candles are chocolate mocha scent which wafts through to the adjacent living room.  
The pumpkins needed a little Halloween-izing so I found my clown heads in the craft room and pushed them on the pumpkins stem.  No self-respecting pumpkin man should go without funny hair so some colored raffia folded in half worked just fine.
The apothecary jars are always full of something, last round was wooden dominoes, this time there is needlepoint yard and crochet thread.  I like the cozy vibe that these two fillers offer!  The library table was a thrift store find two years ago, $ 17.00 and a perfect place for the repro- style phonograph and some display items.
This little doily is a gift from Chris at Perfectly Printed, it makes the perfect perch for the Indian corn creamers and the black bird.  The bird was originally cement color, don't be afraid to paint anything with chalkboard paint, not just flat surfaces!
Harvest M&Ms in a Pyrex pot, CUTE COUNTS!  How long do you think I can leave them alone in there?

  10. Such pretties, Tammy. I love the yarn balls in the jar, but I really love the candy in the pyrex coffee pot. That is the cutest thing ever. You're inspiring me to get out the fall decor(but first I have to wait for Halloween to be over, cuz there's no room)!

  17. Tammy, those clown heads on the pumpkins are so much fun. I'm thinking that between the smell of those candles and the clear pot of M&M's, the M&Ms wouldn't have lasted through the photo shoot. Love the yarn in the apothecary. laurie
