Time to get back inside & entertain . .

Our Autumn weather has arrived!
 In the Pacific Northwest we have enjoyed a wonderful Indian Summer
but reality has now set in and we are all spending more time indoors.

Time to spruce things up around the house & get ready to Entertain.

How about a pretty cup -
one of these beauties will be sure to bring a smile on a cold, dark day.

Sparkling glassware - ready for an impromptu get together -
make every occassion a special one!
Where do they find these fantastic display pieces?

 Handpainted plates & bowls stacked high on a shelf 
creates a casual way to entertain . .
Love the mirror & its rustic appeal beside the brightly patterned china. 

I have always admired this vintage floor cabinet -
the unexpected, paint color & shallow depth
would make a perfect place to display and admire your beautiful
glassware and plates when not in use.

I dream about all the things I would put in all those drawers . .

And after all that entertaining
why not curl up in your favorite chair & enjoy
browsing through one of these fantastic magazines -
not just your average magazine
but more like books filled with beautifully illustrated inspiration & ideas  . .
