Autumn is in the air

I have gawked long enough! This is my first attempt at Tablescape Thursday so please don't be too hard on me.

Autumn is now officially here so I think of raking the fallen leaves, frost on the pumpkin, ducks and geese flying over. I pulled out some dishes that signify autumn to me.

Those are great Mallard tureens! They really make your fall tablescape different from all the others with pumpkin ones! How nice that they were from someone in your family. Kathleen gave you those lovely green leaf plates? How nice, though I know she can spare them with the MANY dishes she has! LOL!

Very warm, inviting tablescape! The mini tureens are quite unique. I think you're off to a great start!

I've only done 2 'scapes myself so far. It's quite an art form isn't it? It seems to me that some of these folks must own china shops!

You carried out your theme beautifully! I'm glad you decided to participate in TT & hope to see you again....and again! :)
