Hello fall...

"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall."
-F. Scott Fitzgerald

For us this quote proved to be very true, as we've recently relocated. No one was as surprised as we were when my husband received a job opportunity cross country. So we've since moved from Washington state to our new home, Utah. And while I am missing all the greenery that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, I find that these long, cold, sunny days are pretty great too.

 Our new home is still in the works, but for now I wanted to share a bit of our dining room. So far it's my favorite room in the house.

Since "coffee bars" are all the rage, and we needed the counter space, we opted to create our own on the sofa table turned side board. It's actually really nice to just reach behind you and grab another cup from the table. I'm looking forward to creating a hot chocolate station for the holiday season as well!

Our centerpiece this year is simple, scented pine cones and a candle in my favorite bowl. Vintage salt and pepper shakers to complete the look!

My hutch is on my project "to-do" list. I'm thinking something along the lines of green and white! I love that my dishes are handed down from my mother's side of the family, but it wasn't a complete set, so I've added some tea cups in a matching scheme, and have a few teapots that coordinate as well.

Sometimes it's something as simple as a few pumpkins and some wheat to bring in the feeling of fall. Hope you enjoyed my little space.
