CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Transitioning into FallAugust is now half over, school has started back and we are having, believe it or not, a few days of lower humidity here in the South! And...Labor Day will be here before you know it! The combination of these things has me beginning to think about fall! Sooooo…I decided to add a little transitional centerpiece to my dining room table.

Baby KittyNow Baby Kitty knows that it’s just a little too soon to even think about it for all of you who had the winter-that-would-not-end last year, but he hopes that you understand that the heat, humidity and constant yard work have gotten the best of us down here in the South! We are ready for a little teensy hint of fall!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Dough Bowl I started with my grandmother's dough bowl, one of my most prized possessions, and filled it with Granny Smith apples and pears. I don’t know why, but that just says fall to me!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Transitioning into Fall3 Then I added sunflowers to my favorite rooster vase…a smaller version of the one found in Charles Faudree’s French Country Signature. That always makes me smile! And…it was a bargain at only $10 in my favorite flea and antique shop!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Rooster Vase I love the rooster…so frenchy…and the little chicks around his feet!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Transitioning into Fall2I rounded them all up in my Williams Sonoma Outlet bargain basket and placed it on my grain sack table runner…still not quite ready to get out the ruffled burlap runner. And there you have it…a centerpiece to finish out the last days of summer and take me into the beginning of fall!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Simple Fall Dough Bowl Here’s my simple fall dough bowl inspired by Pottery Barn from a few years back…a little more fallish than my current one, but still not full-blown fall!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Fall Dough Bowl 2012And here’s where my mind is starting to head…another fall dough bowl filled with pumpkins and bittersweet! It’s waaaay too soon for that, but I have to admit that I am chomping at the bit for fall to get here! What about you?
