An odd pairing

A sweet little brown transferware cup and saucer.
Just one.

A lone little cup and saucer...
and a tiny abandoned nest that was found this summer.
Don't they look sweet together?

I hated seeing summer end.
...even though autumn has been especially beautiful.

Soft browns and creams...
...perfect for fall decorating!

Today I am continuing to get holiday items and decor
 ready to put in my little booth spaces at Schoolhouse Treasures.

It's hard to be "in the moment"
... as I sit here putting price tags on a zillion Christmas ornaments!

Thank goodness my sister made me promise
 to take time for a walk outside on this beautiful autumn day!

Hope you are feeling well...
 and have a day that brings hope for the future!

What am I grateful for today?
sisters who love me and pretty autumn days

I love your odd pairing and your teacup is awesome. Perfect for a pretty fall day's sippin!

In fact I did something similar back at Eastertime so you know I love it - plus Finch Rest just loves her some birdie nests!

I can't seem to get into the holidays quite yet either- supposed to be in the 70s here today!

have an enjoyable day - and you are SO right about sisters!

Something so simple as a cup and saucer and a little birds nest creates a warm and ever so sweet vignette.

Enjoy your walk!

How sweet! I have a weakness for nests and added to your cup makes it just perfect.
Hope you are having a good fall day.

Dear Laura,

I love this pairing. It's the perfect autumn accent. Thank you so much for the visit and happy birthday wishes. I haven't been doing much visiting with all the craziness at our house, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel finally. Would love to visit your holiday booth. Wish I were closer.
