WISH Wednesday #50

I'm all about blue for fall decorating this year.  It's a bit different than the usual fall colours, but I love blue with orange and gold so it works.  I used blue in our dining room (which you can see here and here) so when I saw that someone else had used a blue tablecloth I had to feature that for my WISH Wednesday photo for this week.

Isn't mercury-glass the best - lots of sparkle, but it doesn't have to be polished and it looks a little vintage and worn.  I love mercury-glass pumpkins - not that I have any, but I love the look.  In the photo below the tablecloth looks a little folksy with a batiked or stamped pattern all over it and is a nice contrast with the sparkly mercury-glass and the more formal white china and glassware.  

Have you been smitten by the mercury-glass fad?

It's the end of the month already so here is the September WISH Wednesday photo mosaic. By the way, did you notice that I didn't have an extra photo to use to even out the numbers - it is the first time that has happened all year.  I used a photo I took of some asters and goldenrod at our friend's farm a few weeks ago.

  1. Love your inspiration board Grace! I love that you use blue for fall decorating. Its fun and beautiful!

  2. Great inspirations for September, and I love this week's. LOVE the blue, silver, and orange.

    LOL goldenrod used to be Alabama's state flower, but they changed it to the camellia.
