Fall Dining Room and Two Cross Stitch Finishes


Good Morning.. Hope you are all having a great week so far!
 
When we remodeled our living room / dining room , we got a new dining room set. I hadn't decorated the shelves of the hutch until yesterday .. My daughter was digging around in our basement and found some of my old dishes. They are cream colored  Pfaltzgraff  with grapes and leaves..I wanted plain cream ones to display but these are free :) .
 
 I added the decomesh garland I had made for over our foyer mirror, but that got taken down with the remodel , so it fits perfectly over the hutch. Its dark brown decomesh, burlap ribbon, sunflowers , berries and leaves,,
 I moved the Pumpkin cottage cross stitch piece from the foyer and added a silver tray with a glitter pumpkin , sunflowers and dried hydrangea.


 I added a couple pumpkins, pumpkin plates , a vintage blue mason jar, and a basket of dried hydrangeas to the inside of the hutch.

 A little fall vignette on the server.. plates stacked with a pumpkin, ivy, sunflowers, and those green floral balls, in a wrought iron basket.


On the table is a big cloche with pumpkins , lace, dried hydrangeas and berries on a silver tray.
I had finished stitching 2 fall cross stitch pieces , I found the frame below at the good will, for $3.99. I took out the glass and just left the frame and matting in . II then attatched the stitching to foam board and glued it to the frame mat. I wrapped a piece of twine around the bottom and glued twine to a button to make a flower.This stitching is a free pattern from with thy needle and thread blog . I love how it turned out.

Ok, me again. I have gone through about 2 years of posts. I don't know if I have ever been here before, but I am adding you to my blogroll. I wish I had 10 percent of the energy you have! I mean you and all your crafts...and Christmas trees. Oh, all is so beautiful and I love all the homemade touches!

Your dining room is lovely with all the fall decorations. I especially love the buffet and how you arranged all the fall accessories. The two stitchings are so beautiful framed and each is so different and I could not pick my favorite. Great Job!
