Even though temperatures are in the 90s all week,
corn harvest is in full swing around here. So I decided
it was time to do a little harvest decorating.
Come on, and I'll show you around!
My mom found me this amazing large Thanksgiving platter
in the Historical America pattern. I can't wait to serve turkey on it!
And speaking of turkey, this glass turkey candy dish looks
great with our red transferware collection, doesn't he?
I love how the sun shines in through the punched tin of
my Great Grandma's pie safe in the mornings.
I always enjoy decorating our mantel behind the wood stove
for the different seasons. This year I used the harvest theme,
with the different crops that we raise around here displayed.
The milo in the enamel pitcher is from last year,
ours isn't quite ripe yet. The old canning jars are filled
with wheat and corn.
Although we do not raise corn, the fields around our house
are all corn this year. After harvest, our kids like to go out
and find the ears the combine missed!
This beautiful fall arrangement was made by my Mom.
She's great at floral arranging! I found the old sewing
machine drawer at a garage sale when I was in high school,
and it makes a perfect table centerpiece.
Fall is such a cozy time of year! So burn a harvest scented
candle and enjoy a cup of hot tea and maybe a caramel or two!
Peacemakers who sow in peace
raise a harvest of righteousness.
