If I Could Have One Dish...

Tomorrow and we're half way there folks!
The word that's music to my ears!
I'm heading to another fair this weekend.
I've been so spoiled.
There's something about fall weather and antique fairs
that I can't seem to get enough of.

After purchasing the creamy white buffet last week,
we went into full force dining room decorating mode.
What's a dining room without showcasing your favorite 
pottery and dishes?
A stop to Anthropologie helped solve that problem.
Anthropologie = the death of me.
The charger is from Pottery Barn and the dishes and 
 tea cup/saucer are from Anthropologie.
Both the minty colored dish and the
flower petals dinner plate can be found online.

They are even more beautiful in person! Trust me!

These plates are o.n.e of a kind.
Words cannot express how lovely this dinnerware is.
Shelley Hesse is the artist and I love how she incorporated
little critters to plate.  Yummy, right?

I'm working on the table scape this weekend.
I'm in desperate need of a table runner and some objects
to dress the table up.  
I'm also working on adding draperies to the room and
adding the recently purchased corbels to the corners of the room.
There's always a project at Hickory.
You know this when...
A tape measure is a staple on your coffee table...
Sad...I admit that.
But it's that one thing that makes me come alive.

A few more peeks at the room...

be our guest?

These photos have inspired me to get busy outside.

What a great way to welcome your guests!
I'm in the spirit.
Invite your family and friends to join you in welcoming fall!
