Autumn from the mantel...spilled over onto the hearth.

Autumn florals and a trailing cluster of grapes fill a tall french pedestal vase...brown and cream colored damask candleholders with cream colored pillar candles sit atop an olive green and gold tapestry runner.

***Just a little note: Sunday Favorites Criteria***
*
When I first started the Sunday Favorites meme, my initial thought was to offer a solution for getting a post out on the weekend without having to spend alot of time doing so...weekends are just a busy time for most of us! Copying and pasting a previous post is so quick and easy. Not only is this a quick and easy solution to the busy weekends, but it's also an opportunity to dig back into our blog archives and share a favorite "past" post once again! Many of us spend alot of time and effort creating a post and it just seems a shame that it is viewed only once and then forgotten about!
*
I would like to reiterate that Sunday Favorites is a meme about sharing or revisiting a post from the PAST!
*
Thank you!!!

Chari,

I am so sorry that I did this post twice. The first time I couldn't quite get it right so I reposted it again but I couldn't delete where I placed it on your blog the first time???? The post was the Seafood Gumbo. Loved your post, btw.
