Fall Tea Tray

I'm diving right into fall decorating and I can't help but think about it in new and fresh ways; like the mix of black, white, and green. 

I have a little tea tray that could easily be carted outside today to enjoy this crisper fall weather.

But, I can never resist adding something vintage in the mix.  Here I have found, at a local used book store, a copy of Famous Ghost Stories.

The illustrations in this book are wonderful!  It will definitely give me a chill if the weather doesn't!

 Is it starting to feel like fall in your area today? 

 I will link this to:

I've followed your blog for a while and really enjoy it.

Please don't take this the wrong way but I do wish one picture showed the whole tray with the book - sort of a step back and consider picture. I've noticed there is a decided trend to up-close shots which give much needed detail. But I am design-challenged and would like to see the whole "scene". Thanks.

So charming for fall...and such lovely photos, too!

I threw that last pic in for you Peggie. I always take a pic of the whole scene, but get much too distracted in editing with my close-ups! LOL
Thanks for pointing out it was missing.

I love your fall tea tray! That's what's nice with white ironstone...it can be so versatile! Love the bittersweet (?) berries. A wonderful seasonal look.

Your Fall themed tea tray is lovely! I especially like the orange touch with the foliage! I haven't begun any fall decorating yet. But thinking about it...
The book looks fab! Those are wonderful illustrations! I love collecting books like this too.
