~Fall Tablescape~

I wanted to share with you photos of our Fall Tablescape 
that was inspired by my vintage china.
I love using old china.
With pink roses in antique gold rimmed glasses,
 it adds that touch of romance. 
Candles lit
 add to the lighting.
White pumpkins at every placesetting.
Seeded eucalyptus is used for the center of the table runner.

 A rose adds to the antique silverware.

A pretty linen table runner

~Fall In Our Garden~

Happy Fall!!
Walking through our garden I saw the change of the seasons.
There's nothing like the leaves falling and the chill in the air.
I wanted to share photos of our garden this Fall.
Stan planted lots of pumpkins, squashes and vegetables for our Autumn harvest.

Acorn squashes too!!
A little pumpkin wrapped it's way around an 
antique galvanized watering can.

I love squash blossoms.
They're so good when stuffed with ricotta cheese.

This is one area, 
where we grew the butternut squashes!

The pumpkins came out everywhere to say hello!!
There's nothing like fresh butternut squash from the garden!

A surprise pumpkin growing next to a stepping stone.

Pretty butternut squashes!
Happy Fall From Our Garden To Yours!!

~DIY Mosaic Stepping Stone Project and More Garden Ideas~

I've always loved mosaic projects.
Collecting vintage plates and saving them to use in our garden.
I just finished some stepping stones.
I wanted to share with you,
 how I made the mosaic stepping stones. 
There are lots of different shapes of stepping stones, 
you can purchase at your local garden store.
Immerse a concrete stone in water to wet thoroughly.
I cut the plates with a mosaic glass cutter and mosaic tile nippers,
 which I bought at Home Depot.
You can also use a hammer but, the cutters make the plate pieces smaller.
Always wear safety glasses.
I used a tile adhesive to affix the pieces and let dry for 24 hours.
Then I grouted with premixed grout.
Using a wet sponge, clean excess grout.
Let dry another 24 to 48 hours.
Here are some photos of the finished stepping stones.
You can find all kinds of pretty plates at flea markets, garage sales,
 estate sales and vintage stores.
Have fun making a mosaic stepping stone
 for your garden!!
Here's some more mosaic ideas for your garden.
A pretty brick!
