The Shady Porch: An Autumn Table of Jewels


An Autumn Table of Jewels

Jewel-toned pumpkins

To carry the celebration of all things autumn into the living room, I used some old, some new, and some homemade items to create this bright, colorful party on my table top! I created jewel-toned pumpkins to start. I painted one pumpkin a metallic moss pearl and decoupaged another in purple leafy tissue paper. Then, using burlap scraps, I made a couple of stuffed pumpkins.

My mom's Jewel Tea coffee pot is called Autumn Leaf and
is a sentimental family treasure dating back to the 50s

 I took a family treasure, my Jewel Tea coffee pot that came down to me from my grandmother and mother, and used it as a vase for a floral pop of color. Accented with a few family-gathered pine cones (Thanks, Unkie!) that added a light natural aroma, the Autumn Leaf pattern seems right at home.

Finally, I used my first subway art project that defines all things fall in our home, and coupled it with a homemade lantern made from wooden frames with a candle inside it. It's so bright and cheery, it makes me smile just looking at it. Happy Fall, Y'All!
