My 2011 Autumn Home Tour

*
*
*
Hello my friends...I hope you're having a fabulous day!
*
This is a very busy week for many of us...with Thanksgiving day just a couple
 of days away.  I would like to wish you and your family a very blessed and happy
 Thanksgiving.  We have so much to be thankful for this year! 
*
This will be my last post of the week.  I thought I would take you on a photo tour
 of my 2011 autumn home.  It's a photo laden post so I promise to keep the chat
 to a minimum.  I hope that you enjoy!

Chari,
Oh, my dear friend, your home looks so lovely for Thanksgiving. I adored seeing it once again in all it's finest accessories! The mantle is alive with vibrant hues and mimics the print above the fireplace perfectly! How sweet is that enamel topped kitchen table with it's Autumn vignette! You know how I adore French Country and your color palette in the dining room! The use of deer sheds and phesants looks stunning and rustic at the same time! Pears are my favorite faux fruit for home decor!!! I love the golden hued pears you used in your tablescape! How romantic is that purple hued fireside table? Very romantic, my dear! Thank you, once again for allowing us to share in your preprations for a Thanksgiving Day for four...we, too, will have four at our Thanksgiving table! Blessings for a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Fondly,
Pat

Sonia said...

Chari,
Oh such eye candy!! Everywhere I look it is so warm and inviting. I love all the rich fall colors and your home is painted in the perfect colors already to coordinate with all your pretties! The table is set beautifully and the edges of your plates are so pretty layered on each other. The pears and pheasants are so rich looking. Love the table next to the fireplace, looks like a perfect place to cozy up to! Hope you are enjoying this fall week and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Hi darling, what a wonderful tour you took us on of your beautiful Fall decor. I can only imagine what your Christmas is going to look like. I want your camera and your eye, your pictures are always great.. do you use a Canon?
I'm sure you're busy getting ready for all the festivities of turkey day. It will just be the daughter and her family, as you know Mr. P really doesn't care for a lot of people around at one time. Right now for the most part he's doing well, if I can keep him on his feet, the legs are quite weak, doesn't complain so he's easy to care for. Darling, from our home to yours Happy Thanksgiving. hugs ~lynne~

Chari,

Thanks for sharing your beautiful home. I love the rich colors you use, and the enamel table is so sweet. Would love to have one, though I don't know where on earth I would place it. Hope your Thanksgiving is a happy and peaceful one with your family and friends. May you be blessed!
Kathy

Cindy said...

Hello dear Chari,
Your house looks gorgeous! I always like to see your vignettes and tablescapes, they are so colorful and full of inspiration.
Hugs, Cindy

PERMANENT POSIES said...

Just lovely! We have similar tastes in home decor. I love you mixture of rustic and elegant. Particularly love the pheasants and jars of corks and candles. I have jars of pine cones, acorns and paw paws....and fake crab apples. I just love to look at things through glass. I love your dark fireplace (so is mine) and dark bookshelves but then you mix in the shabby chicish dining table. I hope you have an awesome Thanksgiving.

Dear Chari,
You always decorate your home so beautifully and not only for the holidays.

See you on Sunday.
