Simple Black and Orange Tabletop

Thank you to everyone who chimed in yesterday

with advice on sheets!

I slept in those wrinkled disasters last night

and they were actually pretty comfortable.

I guess I will keep them

(as long as they are well hidden under the duvet)

but I will continue my quest to find the perfect sheets!

Onto other things…

 When I was out at a garden center yesterday,

I found this great black and orange fabric.

It was already the width of a runner

and they sold it by the yard for I think around 2.99 per yard. 

It is actually a little longer than shown in the picture

but I just folded the two ends under for now.

I think it works well as a runner

to keep on the table through Halloween.

Last year I went much lighter for my everyday look…

I am sure this year,

I will be using those white pumpkins somewhere!

I think the black and orange plaid feels very warm and  fall-like.

Who knows, I might get ambitious this week

and do a full table setting around it!

And did you notice,

I am now attempting to add the watermark to my pictures?

Take that all you blog thieves!

Have you found any new fall fabrics lately?

    Very pretty! This is my favorite time of year, and I LOVE the fall colors, although I am not much of a table setter 🙂

    The black and orange is a winner I think. Looks very warm, cozy and fallish….Pat
