Not quite fall tablescape

It has been too long since my last post…  Life has just been too busy.  Between my husbands parent and my parents and adult children who refuse to grow up, we have had our hands full.  Anyone relate? 
I had a good time puttering a little prior to my parents recent visit with us.  Also pulled out a bunch of stuff and sold some in a garage sale the rest went to the GW.
house 001 house 002 house 003 I sort of had fall on my mind but not really, the roosters and the fruit in the cloche kind of hint to fall.
house 004 Do you see my toile chair covers?  I should have taken better pictures of them.  They are Waverly chair covers, I found 2 of them at the GW for $5.  Later I found 2 of them on Ebay and won them for $40.  They are some of my favorite things.
house 005 This table runner was a find at the GW.  The rooster salt and pepper shakers, GW too.
house 007 house 008 house 009 The topiary bought at Hobby Lobby a couple years ago, I love how the ivy covers it.
house 010 house 011 house 014 This rooster hails from 015 This is a cup and saucer found at GW.
house 017 love how this red saucer goes with the other reds on the table.  The saucer and creamer also from my collection of GW finds, none of them are recent finds, but isn’t fun to have a collection of finds to play with.
house 018 house 020 Hope you have fun playing with your collections as you prepare for fall.  It has been way too hot here to really feel like fall yet, although with football in full swing it sort of feels like it is just around the corner.
