If you have been reading my blog this summer you know that I have been unable to get any tomatoes from the two tomato plants that I planted in May.
Between a human tomato pilferer and the pesky squirrels all of my tomatoes were taken.
This went on all summer, but I think the squirrels are busy collecting nuts for winter now and the pilferer was sternly warned off by management.
Now on to the plate rack.
I love my blue and white transferware, and originally this is how the plate rack looked from my chair in the living room.
This was actually the only photo I could find of how it was done, and it was definitely not staged. You can see my market cart in the background and my glass and napkin on the table.
I enjoyed looking at it, but I have been changing things around and I wanted more of a farmhouse look for fall and winter.
I also wanted to use some of my antique white ironstone china.
I love the antique tequila bottle.
I found this bottle hidden in my Great Aunt Rose's china cabinet, which was in her bedroom. My grandmother gave me the china cabinet and its contents in the late 1970's when I was making my first home.
Aunt Rose passed away in 1960. She lived with my grandparents and owned half of the house and their business. The funny part is that my grandmother was a member of the temperance league. They didn't exactly get along too well.
It looks like it says Tequila Laura. Hmmmm!! Maybe that is why I was Aunt Roses's favorite.
A rustic basket, the white ironstone, a brown transferware plate, plants, the bottle, and a whisk broom all add to the farmhouse look.
I'm liking it's fall look.
