~fall in the foyer



the reflecting colors seen as the light penetrates the bowl
reminds me of stained glass windows
~~~
ran some errands yesterday in town
and visited with a sweet friend
in her gift shop & purchased
this beautiful bowl and easel


the foyer table was the most suitable place
for the light to reflect all the colors

I do believe this new purchase may be
used year round.

fall leaves, caladium leaves,
and I do believe I see some holly leaves....


bringing the beauty of fall into our home

“How beautifully leaves grow old.
 How full of light and color are their last days.”

That plate is so pretty on your table with the rest of your tastefully placed fall pieces, I can almost hear the crackling fire now.

This just sings, "Fall"! I like the quote, too! I could apply the quote to some people as they 'mature' and 'mellow' in their last days.

Karen, I love the pretty fall look in your foyer. Everything matches so well, even the chair. Seeing all the beautifully decorated homes in blogland has inspired me to do more decorating than I usually do for fall but I've had such fun. The plate on your table is very pretty and I think it would look good there all the time.
Thanks for the nice comment.----------Shannon
