Autumn Pears...One of My Favorite Things!

*

*
Hello my friends...I hope you're having a fabulous day!
*
Today I am joining in with "A Few of My Favorite Things Saturday" party over at Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie Blog...hosted by the very sweet Ms. Laurie herself! You will find the credits for this lovely party at the end of my post.

Poires d'automne...Autumn Pears
*
Yes...autumn pears is one of my favorite things! For those of you who know me...you have probably suspected that this is so...for sometime now! Hehe! I'm not exactly sure what it is about a pear that I LOVE. I do love the taste of a pear...but I must admit that I also love the shape of a pear...and the many colors of a pear! Pears are just pretty to me!
*

*

My autumn table centerpiece has pears....
*
Yes...I DO love pears! Soooo...when I was doing a little "window shopping" on Ebay...I ran across the prettiest pear plates that I've ever seen...it was love at first sight!!!
*

My newest treasure find..."Golden Pears" salad/dessert plates.
*
The manufacturer's mark on the back of the plate says...
*
Crate & Barrel
Golden Pears
by Julia Bullmore 1998
Japanese Porcelain Decorated in the USA
*
I have not been able to find out much about this pretty pattern. I'm just sooo happy that I found them on Ebay and made them MINE! Each plate...of the set of four...has a different type of pear on it.

Ahhh...poires d'automne!!!

*
Plate #1....a red pear!
*

*

*
Plate #2...an autumn pear.
*

*

*
Plate #3...a golden yellow pear.
*

*

*
Plate #4...a green pear.
*

Gilded leaves...

I was having a difficult time photographing the pear plates, however the photo above shows the beautiful features of the plates a little better! As you can see...the gold is gilded...it is sooo pretty when the light shines on it! I just love the shade of green that is used on the rim of the plates as well!
*

* Ahhhh...autumn pears!!!
*
I have pears everywhere...
*

*
I have pears on my dining room buffet!
*

*

*
I have pears on the wall! If you look to the left side of the photo...you will be able to see a framed print of a pear. The print is one of my favorites...it is a french country pear!!!

Another dining room buffet vignette with pears.
*

*
An autumn table set beside the fireplace in our living room. A metal clock is filled with pears...for just a little extra interest! A couple of autumn pears nestled in the autumn foliage was added to the base of the clock.
*

*
Yes...I love, love, LOVE PEARS! They really are one of my favorite things!!!

Love the pear plates and the pears everywhere! I think pears are so pretty and tasty too! They have to be crunchy, no soft ones for me! I hope you are enjoying lots of beautiful weather where you are!

Gail @ Faithfulness Farm said...

Chari....I LOVE pears! They so take a back seat to the cousin the apple this time of year. I love apples too but there is something more elegant about a pear. Your new plates are gorgeous! Lucky, lucky you :)

Blessings!

Jenny said...

How gorgeous -- love the pears!

Sarah said...

Chari, I so agree that these plates are gorgeous. Great find. I've always loved pears too. They are wonderful in salads, but like you, I like to have the pear form scattered here and there. Most of my pears are made of wood. Thanks for sharing the beautiful vignette and the fabulous plates. Have a great weekend. ~ Sarah

Hello Chari!
Oh my goodness it has been such busy few months for me and my hubby. I'm afraid to say it but my blog visits have been diminishing because of it. I've missed you! I hope you and your family are doing well and enjoying the fall weather.

Your pears and fruit plates are beautiful. The buffet looks like something out of the finest home decor' magazine. It's all so welcoming and warm. Lovely job!


Have a wonderful week!
Love ya girl. ~Melissa :)
