Fall has finally made an appearance and it’s wonderful. Yesterdays cool weather made us feel like cooking our first comfort food meal.
Roasted chicken with fresh sage butter I made under the skin of the breast and rubbed on top with salt and pepper.
Homemade stuffing filled with roasted chestnuts, red and green apple sautéed in wine with shallots. Dried cranberries, sautéed turkey sausage removed from the casing and an Italian girl has to add fresh Parmesan cheese and just a touch of red pepper flakes to finish it off.
I also made fresh turnips with some grated nutmeg, ginger, a bit of cinnamon and butter. Hungry?
Now on with some simple fall touches through the kitchen.
Below is a wine crate stained and stenciled I made a while back filled with French script pillows and my love of dried Hydrangea and acorns.
One of my favorite things is also Toile!
Small table filled with items I love.
Cinnamon, the scent that says fall in an anqtique transferware jar, antique plates that were my moms and these little guys to add some whimsy.
Noticing my obsession with acorns? These are from our old neighborhood. John sprayed them with polyurethane and they are still in perfect shape.
These have the sticks attached, there’s that whimsy to me again.
The amber crackle glass jar was my moms. She purchased this when I was a child, one of my favorite pieces to pull out for fall. All it is placed on vintage French books and a small Toile cake stand.
A silver sugar bowl that was my grandmothers filled with more acorns from the old neighborhood sprayed with poly. Don’t they look great?
A small asparagus pitcher from Home Goods from years back filled with a pod corn husk pick. Love the colors in the pitcher against these transferware red plates.
Some of my favorite finials with my mercury glass pumpkin and a small white faux pumpkin.
These shelves are built-in and I fill them with favorite pieces . The jars and pitchers are vintage.
Filled with pieces of silver my grandmother bought here and there over the years.
One of my other loves Cloches, hence Cloches and Lavender.
A wonderful porcelain cloche with this cute Rooster perched on top for color.
Vintage pitcher filled with another love Lavender!
Vintage pitcher filled with more pieces of my grandmothers silver. She was quite the antique shopper.
A colorful cake stand I use for my famous Cheesecakes.
Another shot of this shelf filled with some of my favorite things.
Are you getting ready for fall and ready for comfort foods? Ready for cozy nights? Enjoy the beginning of your week!
