Fall Decorating

My first picture - not much fall, need to add to my hutch but I rearranged my dishes. A Macy's ad came in the mail featuring Martha Stewart's collections for Macy's. I loved the way the photo appeared with all of Martha's white dishes in a hutch. I used this for inspiration (aka - copied) and put my dishes in this way. I love the way it looks, fills my hutch up and shows off all my old dishes (these are the ones we received for wedding gifts 24+ years ago).

Next my table, my mother-in-law sent me the placemats for my birthday. They are perfect for my table and room. A big thanks to her.

The mantle. I hit Ben Franklin's this weekend and found lots of goodies.

Side note:
A comment on the blog about not hearing the podcast at interview time. The software only records my interviews on one channel, this means you only hear out of one headphone/speaker. This might be the problem with not hearing the interview. I am working on using other software for my interviews but for now, it is not your headphones. Sorry, but thought I would let you know.


  1. OMG, LORI, I am cracking up! I JUST sent you an email telling you that I spent the weekend re-decorating, too! LOL. This is getting too weird.

    I love the dishes in your hutch and the mantle display looks terrific.

  2. Looks great! I don't decorate for any holiday other than Christmas, so this leaves me inspired. :)

    Love your decorating! All the colors and items just "go" together!

  4. It's so cute and homey. I want to come to your house now and bob for apples. . .

  5. Your hutch looks great with all the dishes displayed! You have a nice collection.

    I love the ads for the Martha collection at Macy's, but we don't have that store around here--which is probably a good thing since I can't afford it anyway!

  6. Happy Birthday to You!
