Fall changes ~

Even though it is a hot 98 degrees today it is beginning to feel a bit like fall. The evenings are much cooler, out in the garden some of the leaves are starting to drop, flower buds are filling out on the chrysanthemums and the fall-blooming asters are ready to burst forth in bloom.

To add a bit of seasonal interest inside the house I decided to put away all of the silver pieces in my kitchen cupboard and bring out my Franciscian Apple dishes. An apple theme seems appropriate for this time of year and gives me an opportunity to enjoy and use these dishes which are otherwise hidden away.

Before bagging and boxing up silver I add one or two of these silver protection strips, they really help to retard  tarnishing during storage. You can buy them online.

It has been quite a while since I have made any changes in the kitchen, over the summer I got too caught up in gardening and the living room project. This was a lot of fun to do

It's amazing how a few seasonal items can make a room look so different. 
I will probably leave the dishes in place for Halloween and Thanksgiving and just add other holiday touches.

Now I am eyeing the tiered stand next to the sink...time for a change here too.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you have a lovely day.


  1. Lovely vignette using your apples! I like how they are reflected in the mirror; very cozy and warm. Thanks for sharing and have a beautiful day.


  2. We have been picking the apples off of our trees and enjoying eating them.
    Here the cooler Fall is definitely in the air...almost time to pull out the cashmere sweaters!
    Your home looks so cozy.

  3. Beautiful dishes. Looking forward to your tiered tray decor.

  4. The dishes are beautiful! The apples really compliment them. Your decoration is always so lovely.

  5. So pretty, Adrienne, and just the right touch for Autumn..Happy Weekend..Judy
