Hi everyone! I hope you have had a wonderful week! We are enjoying the beautiful weather as summer starts to slowly turn into fall. I wanted to share a couple of late summer vignettes before fall officially arrives.
My dad and I made this table from an old North Carolina wagon wheel, and a rim from one at my cousin's ranch in Montana. We had the glass cut at a local glass company. Because of the thickness of the glass, they will not try it again either! When we made it, I had a lot of American Indian art and had just started collecting pottery as I made trips to Bolivia, and Panama. As I traveled more and started getting more European accessories, the table still seemed to work just as well. It was a labor of love and something I'll always share with my dad:-)
My geraniums have done so well this summer, I brought this one inside. I'm hoping to keep them alive through the winter! I have accessorized with a 1970s glass ashtray containing candles, and a few of my favorite decorating books.
The brass table is probably from India and was inherited from a relative who lived in China and traveled extensively. No one wanted this, but I knew it would fit right in here! I have mixed a Mexican Talavera pot with a mother-of-pearl inlaid box from Egypt and a box from Big Lots. The children put small toys in there.
Pretty soon, all those leaves outside the windows will turn shades of yellow, orange and red, so I am enjoying the green as long as I can. Thanks so much for stopping by:-)
I'll be participating in "Vignette Fridays" over at "Color Outside the Lines." so please go by there and look at all the wonderful ideas!
