September CupboardScape

Good morning all!
With the burst of Summer we have had again,
It sure does not seem like Autumn is arriving.
The only thing outside which tells me Autumn is near
are the acorns hitting my neighbors roof.
While the squirrels are fighting over them.

As I said a few posts ago,
for this month's CupboardScape,
I decided to feature the items that Linda gifted me.

Simply Blessed was one of those gifts...
and I truly do feel blessed.
God gave me the gift to draw and decorate,
and although I did not take my talent 
to make a living as a designer or an artist,
I so love creating for all of you.
It's your wonderful comments that keep me going.

Linda also gifted me with these wooly blue pieces.
Once I take down this CupboardScape,
they will be tucked away with my other wool,
for a future project.
Thank you again Linda.
I love them all!!!

So with this trencher display,
I wanted to show that you can
 mix faux with fabric.
I used faux apples with fabric pears.
Plus since red and blue compliment each other,
the blue wool fits perfectly!

I purchased this handmade jar from Marie (OLM)
many moons ago, and I am still over the moon over it.

This is my only ovoid blue slip crock.
It is especially special 
because I purchased it from a friend
and because it has handles which are not broken.

I usually keep this beauty on a shelf 
in the guest bedroom so as nothing happens to it.
It is that special to me. 

This month it is out and holding
grass and pears.

The blue bonnet in the middle is an antique,
while the two on each end are hand made.

This month I decided to keep things simple.

A bounty of fruit and bonnets.

In other news,
I participated in Amy's swap and had
 so much fun sending out surprise gifts to both
Jessica and Amy.
Please stop by Amy's blog to join in her latest swap.


Bountiful Blessings To All!
