Show & Tell Friday/Fall Nesting & Beautiful Life Friday

Hello! Welcome to Show & Tell Friday and Beautiful Life Friday with Fall Nesting.
Here is my favorite focal point of the diningroom/family room, my oka hutch, all decked out in Fall finery.
These pitchers are thrift store finds. They cost a couple of dollars all together. Looking at their manufacturing info on the bottoms, three of these actually came together. The fourth one matches, but was made by a different manufacturer. I remember the day I found these grouped together near the chinaware. My eyes couldn't believe it. I love them!

Throughout out most of the year, I look for seasonal items while thrifting. Aren't these pumpkin plates adorable.
How about this pumpkin pitcher? I think it cost me one dollar, way back when.
A close-up of the top shelf of my hutch, including a lovely black & sepia of the children, my mother's English Cottage and a white, wooden carved pumpkin.

Well, while we're at it, here is the Fall floral arrangement on my table..
This is actually a candle holder atop my mother's cake stand, with acorn candles around. The doily was my mother's.

Have a great day!
