My Fall Table

  Here is my fall table with candles glowing, a cross stitch runner with horn of plenty on it and a lovely apple pitcher with mums.  Also, a Maple leaf dish in wonderful fall colors!  Definitely my favorite time of year!

I love this little dish and I think I only paid a couple of dollars for it a few years ago.

This Cross Stitch pre-printed table runner was from Wal-Mart.  I loved it because it took no time to whip out and washes beautifully!

What are your favorites that you put out in fall?

The last picture is of my hubby's lunch.  He is on the renal failure diet now (not on dialysis as yet, thanking God!)
The Suplena drink is a replacement for Ensure as Ensure was bad for the kidneys.  This gives him protein, etc. without the side effects.  He also is lactose intolerant now and drinks Rice Milk.  They have this in the grocery store in the organic and diabetic area.  He loves it and does not taste any difference.  He eats a half sandwich with a whole slice of low sodium roasted turkey and a whole slice of alpine lace low sodium cheese that you can ask for at the deli, this brand is Boar's Head.  He also has a couple of teaspoons of sweet Cole slaw.  We use Smart Balance butter substitute and I eat all the same things with him with no problem with taste.  It all tastes good so he wanted me to take a picture-ha!  And put his drink right on top of the sandwich.  I found that Italian sliced bread has a lot less sodium than white bread, as does Buttermilk bread, also.  This is much more tasty and we both love it!  To see the little fish he caught go to Kerrie's Korner, SC blog.
Thanks for visiting and do come again.  We love having you visit us.

My heart to yours.....

I LOVE the pitcher, and have a leaf dish almost like that. Aw shucks, I just got back from Wal-mart about an hour ago, I want to look for that runner! The meal does look good, I eat the Boars Head Lacy Swiss, I have some in the fridge now, it must be about the same.

Your table looks very nice. I've only decorated the front porch this year...nothing else. If I don't put something out soon I might as well not bother, but I was having a new floor put down and waited and now it's gotten kind of late.

So much of our food is loaded with salt. I don't like the taste of salt and always have trouble...especially if we eat out. I'm sure it's not easy finding things for your husband that are low in sodium.

My husband was just diagnosed with Diabetes a month ago, we are still trying to figure it all out.
I love your fall decor. Lovely.
