Welcome to Cloches and Lavender, if you’re new to Cloches and Lavender welcome.  I have been MIA for three weeks, why, here it is!  I had an infusion for my MS three weeks ago.  I needed to fit many vaccines in before this infusion and.  Not thinking I received my flu shot the day before, lesson learned, bad idea.  This drug is working so well, the one downside, three weeks after my immune system is very compromised.  I think you may know what I may say next, yes Cindy got a Minnie flu.  Other issue, John had a horrible head cold and yes I got that too.  Nothing can be done about getting a cold but I should have thought about getting my flu shot three weeks earlier.  Will not happen next year.  I’m finally back to myself.  I have to accept this is a strong drug and three weeks after my infusion I have to take it very slow, that’s on me.

Today,  I would love to share pumpkins I have added to our foyer.   I recently shared a post on how I gave our Bombay chest a makeover HERE and shared how it was decorated for early fall.  With the season moving along I wanted to carry the “Pumpkin” feel to this space.  Adding a white pumpkin to a silver-plate bowl filled with real dried acorns adds the perfect touch moving through the season.  Doesn’t it look right at home on the base of this old rustic cloche.  I love the look this adds to our French Cottage.

Look at that stem!  I love finding pumpkins with a great stem it gives them character don’t you think?

I also recently designed this French Mirror HERE.  For any new visitors I hope you take a look to see how this piece came together.  

I also nestled a pumpkin on our bookcase with a faux antler and very old books with a tiny dried Hydrangea to add more charm and warmth.

I still love this French vignette of antique French books, lavender and a little metal crown.  The vintage Florentine picture is perfect with my tiny real acorn branch.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these updates.  Stay tuned, next I will be sharing my tablescape for a Harvest Day I am having with my family.  There will be pretty touches to the dining room table with snippets of some food I plan to serve that can be made ahead and freezes  perfectly.  You may be inspired.  Nothing like family, great food and sweets!
