The Soft Neutrals of Fall & A Feature

First I have to say, that I am really excited and thrilled to be featured at Between Naps on the Porch today.  Thanks so much Susan, this is such an honor.  I hope you'll go over and visit her blog.

Ok, now back down to earth.  I have a small vignette that I put together with a couple of new found treasures.

I have a thing for white ceramic fruit and am always thrilled when I find a new piece.  While out shopping with my friend a couple weeks ago, I found two pieces to add to my growing collection.  So a display was on the way.

A pretty apple and pear with gorgeous gold veined leaves.

An all white vignette just seemed the best.

I showed you this fabulous fruit topiary I found at goodwill a while back.  It's hard to show all the detail in a photo, but this piece is amazing.

I displayed the apple on a small pedestal and the pair on a gold stand.

 A white leaf plate and my all white fall fruit vignette is complete.

I am really enjoying the soft neutrals of fall this year.
