"HOME is the nicest place there is." ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

Hello dear friends and welcome to my last HOME party in October!

Next week, we will all be thinking about Thanksgivng and Christmas although we already celebrated our Thanksgiving here earlier this month.

This week at my tea party I shared some pumpkins and some pretty purple tea things.

This wee pumpkin in the teacup got some sparkle.

You can check out more of my tea party in the previous post.

I never showed you my Autumn mantel so here is a photo of it. I wanted something simple with just a little bit of bling. Sorry about the reflection. It's difficult to get a picture without moi in it!

A basket of dried hydrangeas in varied colours accompanied by some mercury glass candle sticks and a candle snuffer is the extent of my decorating here. 

The sun was streaming in and it was hard to get a photo of my ceramic pumpkin pie keeper which I have sitting on the coffee table.

 Inside the inscription reads, "Give Thanks for our Family and Friends." I filled it with potato chips for company the other night.

It sits on the coffee table which was once a dark walnut and I painted it white several years ago.

Here are a few of the features from last week's party.

Kitty @ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen shared her recipe for Amish Cheeseburger Soup. I thought her table setting looked as yummy as the soup itself!

Poppy @ With a Dash of Color shared a wonderful pumpkin vignette. I love her use of gourds and mercury glass!

Eileen @ The Art of Living Beautifully shared her stunning fireplace reveal. I love it!

Kathy @ A Delightsome Life shared a simple but beautiful pumpkin and roses vignette.

Pink Roses White Pumpkins 5

Dianne @ Shabby Gals shared her rocking chair makeover. Love the colour!

And who had the most views last week?
My Canadian friend, Millie @ Wreathmaker shared a lovely post about the scents of Autumn and the wonderful memories they evoke.
Congratulations, Millie!
