Tablescape Thursday......Leaves are a falling even in the house!

Time for our ever fun Tablescape Thursday. Thank you to Susan at, http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/, for hosting us each week.
Be sure and check out her terrific blog and also see who else is showing a tablescape this week!

It is time for some tablescapin' again.
Though most of the leaves have blown off our trees outside now thanks to our Northwest storms, I though I could show a bit more leaves inside this week.
I went with another Fall table in the kitchen, one last time before I switch it out for some Christmas. We can use this setting for Thanksgiving day breakfast.
Just a fairly simple tablescape this week. I did it today.
(Click on any photo to see larger)

The pretty brick red with embroidered leaf napkins were also a gift from my friend
Marilyn. She sent me those and the cute leaf salt and pepper shakers and a pretty brick red leaf pattered tablecloth.
The faux swede leaf place mats I got last year at Walmart.
I thought they showed up prettier on the off white table with out the tablecloth, for some contrast.

The first layer of the place setting is our Johnson Bros. "Harvest Time " plates that
were a thrift store find.
And my newer green pearl handled flatware that was from Marshalls.

Second layer on the place setting is our everyday 222 Fifth "Lutece" patterned
salad or dessert plates.

This crazy thing always wants to turn a picture or two??
Last layer on the place setting is these cute little Olfare leaf bowls I found at Marshalls.

A couple of my collectible Milk Glass Turkey covered dishes act as accessories on the table.

Centerpiece is a Fall topiary I had, a Pinerro majolica turkey bread plate I had and
these cute little leaf salt and pepper shakers a good friend just gave me.

Stemware is our green mercury glass water / wine goblets I got
last year on clearance. And Biltmore crystal wine glasses that I got for $3 each month ago at Marshalls.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone, coming soon!
