We’ve been pinching our pennies lately trying to save for Christmas, the upstairs bath remodel, and all of those things that just sort of pop up when you least expect it. I don’t like it at all, but I’m sure I’ll be happy when we are picking out tiles and faucets! My mom dropped off these beautiful clementines and I decided to use them for our dining table centerpiece along with a couple sprigs of camellia. I don’t usually go for orange, but it is one of Honey’s favorites and I like the bright contrast of colors. Plus it’s a warm fall color, and I don’t want to spend a dime on flowers from the market. Well I want to , but I’m not gonna. Orange it is! When we are sick of eating clementines I might switch to pears, they are a pretty color too. Nothing like an edible centerpiece!
The cake plate is by Martha Stewart from Macy’s, she is always coming out with a new white cake plate and I find them hard to resist. This one is from a couple of seasons ago, but if you are hoping to get a similar one for your cottage I haven’t seen one yet that I didn’t love!
Oh, and I’ve also been thinking about what fabric I want to use to have a slipcover made for my grandpas old chair. You can see a bit of the chenille bedspread I flung over it sitting next to the sofa. That might be a keeper. Derby finds it quite cozy and snug, and how can you argue with a comfy puppy?
