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!
