Drifting Leaves China, Fall Decorations

Hello! It is definitely fall outside...showers and wind...branches and leaves down everywhere! I am joining Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for Pink Saturday...with a fall theme.

For a pink...this is one of the last blooming fuschias in the garden. I will miss the blooms during the winter.

And here is some Shelley China, England pieces that I have in the pattern called Drifting leaves. Thought that was appropriate for today!

I have a teacup, sandwich tray and cups and saucers in the pattern. I think it is perfect for fall. The set was made only between 1956 and 1966 when the pottery closed. For more info on the china at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photos.

I don't do a lot of seasonal decorating anymore...with a business to run and a husband with Parkinson's Disease, I don't have a lot of extra time. I did put up a fall leaves garland around our dining room mirror. I also put a couple of items on the buffet. I had to look a long time a few tears ago for a fall runner that had blue in it, because the house is basically blue and white. I have Waverly toile in the dining room and kitchen with coordinating stripes.

Simple, but I like it. I was glad I'd already gotten them out when the kids called last week on Thursday to say they were flying in on Friday morning!

Tomorrow we go to a special meeting given by my husband's neurologist, Dr. Jennifer Witt of Swedish Neurological Institute in Seattle, about current research and treatment for Parkinson't in Port Angeles, 15 miles away. It is always wonderful when we get someone over here on the Olympic Peninsula, and we don't have to drive into Seattle which is a horrendous thing at the moment with all the retrofit work they are doing. So that will be an interesting day...they're even throwing in lunch! The meeting is at the Red Lion Hotel. Nice!

Have a great time visiting the blogs participating in Pink Saturday, and have a wonderful weekend.

Pink Saturday


  1. Happy Pink Saturday, Ruth! Your Shelley teacup is so pretty. I love the shade of the leaves on it. They almost look teal?
    I'm sorry to hear your hubby has Parkinsons. We have a pastor friend who also has it. He comes out weekly to our Bible studies; bless his heart! He struggles quite a bit but he's very brave! Hope you have a lovely weekend, my friend.


  2. I love orange leaves and pumpkins with blue and white china and with the blue in your runner. Very pretty leaf patterned china.

  3. I don't do much decorating for FALL but I'm slowly trying to get into it! I like the Shelley teacup (of course) and the table runner you found!

  4. Gorgeous autumn runner!!! and your choice of china perfect for the weather. How nice to still have fuschia plants in bloom ~ ours are finished by end of summer.

    Wishing you a safe drive and a most informative lecture. happy week-end. C. (HHL)

  5. I love your full fall swag of leaves over your mirror! Very pretty. My fall and Halloween decorating is just a bit here and there as I am more a spring and summer girl....
    Enjoy having your family!

  7. I love those pretty blooms!

  9. Love your teacups and what you have done for fall. Don't do much fall decorating either.
    Hope there will be promising news at the meeting.
