Autumn Lunch


I had some wonderful friends over for a Sunday lunch and I always enjoy using my found pieces over the years and being able to pick flowers from my garden





Antique soup plates which are real antiques and found for $1 each,antique dessert spoons, scrolly white porcelain plates from a 8 person Austrian dinner set $40 for over 100 pieces, wine glasses and 1940's flower vase for $2 , all from charity shops.The french navy place mats coasters and napkins from a half price sale.




charity shop vintage blue and white jug


Gum leaves in a vintage bucket




   There is a little greening up of the landscape (the running wire along the roof line is for wisteria)


A few autumn roses appearing






charity shop original antique prints of 19thC London
