An Amethyst Autumn Centerpiece & a Peek at the Brunch

 I needed an excuse to make a beautiful tablescape with my Sheraton dishes. They're just so-o-o perfect for fall....that post is here.


So, out of storage came our, wonderful, lazy suzan....it was a handmade gift, many years ago, from a
"very special, man." 
It was a stained pine when we received it, then I painted it a country green. Last year, I gave it a makeover in ivory and hand painted the designs with white and gold. It got a bit beat up in our recent move, so I'm thinkin' about another re-do....exactly what? That remains to be decided!

 My, little, brass easel was next to be used.

   And for it I this made!

A view from the backside holds my grandmother's vintage earrings and pin.


With my glammed up candlestick of brass and crystal....the"eye candy" from that post is here, too.

 A scheme of amethyst, pearls and brass was pulled from the colors in the dishes.

A, tiny, brass, vanity tray is holding my antique sugar and creamer.

Vintage beauties!

More of my inspired colors in my, carved out, painted pumpkin....... in amethyst, pearls, amber and gold.

Overflowing with my favorites...."glamorous glam!"

A nice full view from above.

 And with of all the beautiful settings.

 Next up, I'll share the Full Tablescape for Brunch and my "FAKE"  chargers, too!

Very pretty, JP! I love how you used Amethyst for Fall by incorporating your family heirlooms! I also like your choice of fabric for your runners. In fact, I love everything about your tablescape since I am in love with all shades of purple!
