A nature inspired sideboard

It is too early to get the sideboard ready for the festive season but it is time for a change from my favourite Ralph Lauren Time plates.


While on a visit to one of the many pottery factories of Stoke on Trent, I spied these Spode woodland animal plates & bought them.






































I decided on a pastural scene for a change & wandered around the house collecting some things:
* the little deer antlers bought recently on a trip to the coast ..
* some pheasant feathers that I love
* a vintage tea tin to hold the feathers
* a red wooden footed bowl
* 2 red wooden bowls
* some vintage leather books
* a vintage primitive painting


Favourite wooden items - the colours are perfect in our home





I love this plate design - reminds me of our bunny ..


I found 2 larger plates to use with my new spode ones …

I love the vintage unframed painting paired with the gorgeous blue leather book


A few simple items that were gathered & now the sideboard looks welcoming & interesting again. It also gives me time to plan our Christmas sideboard.


I hope your week is going well - are you on track with all the things that need doing? Thanks for stopping by & taking time to leave a comment.

    1. Oh Lynda - my daughters have bought most the Ralph Lauren clock plates for me. They are made by Wedgwood in the potteries near us for Ralph Lauren & are quite hard to find as most are shipped to the US … http://deeatthecarlton.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/setting-table.html
      I love their quirkiness & have them out often. I hope your festive planning is going well.
