As I was gardening this week I noticed my big tibouchina bush had a lot of leaves that have turned orange and it looked like fall. I'm not sure if that is a natural thing for this bush or whether I have let mine get too dry or something. At any rate, I liked the look and decided right then to do an Old White Chair post using the bush as the backdrop. After waiting a few days I found out this morning that most of the orange leaves are on the ground but, I did the photo shoot there anyhow.........
So, I gathered up some of my favorite things and even without the orange leaves background I love the way the pictures turned out. I had a hard time limiting twenty two pictures to nine.
Here you see that the old chair is near the wooden bench where the stone-face cat takes it's rest. I have a lot of falling leaves from a nearby tree already. They are not especially colorful so I embellished them a little with some of my indoor leaves.
One of my nieces, Wanda, made this basket for me years ago. I have so enjoyed having it and think it is the nicest grapevine basket I have ever seen. It is showing a little wear and has lost a few twigs over the years but I am glad I have been able to hold on to it.
Also on the bench is my McCormick teapot. I have had it a long time too. It was old when I bought it.
You already know how I like mossy flower pots.
My favorite fall tea cup is this Johnson Brothers one. I know some of you see it and the teapot most every fall on at least one post. The cup will be showing up again when I show my fall indoors.
Literally, on my way out the door, I grabbed two magazines with a good look for this autumn scene. Don't you just love the curlycues of the basket!
This is enough to make me want to go make a cup of tea and snuggle up in the plaid blanket.
