Lavender and Pewter…

I’m joining the Tiered Tray Extravaganza hosted by Thoughts of Home. I used a metal tiered tray that I’ve had for a few years purchased at a thrift store. The tray and pewter make me think of fall so I decided to use some of my pewter pieces on the tiers.  My lavender is still blooming so I cut sprigs of it and added them on the tray.

The sugar and creamer on the top level of the tray are part of set with a coffee server, too. The photo below shows the coffee server.

On this next level I have my pewter napkin rings and Salt and Pepper Shakers. The shell rings are from the U.S. and the more ornate pair of rings are not pewter but silver plate bought in Canterbury England.

I’m sharing two other tiered pieces I have at my home that aren’t trays.

This is my Russian Heritage 3 tiered piece with some of my Matryoshka Dolls and wooden spoons. I have samovars, laquer boxes and other Russian treasures in other parts of this old house.

September 13th is the day we have always celebrated my parents wedding anniversary. My pop is still alive but my mom died 3 years ago on her and my pop’s 70th wedding anniversary. I’m happy for all the years they had together.

  1. You have so many treasures. The pewter paired with the lavender stems is gorgeous. Your Russian collectibles (can’t remember how to spell them) are so sweet. They just put a smile on my face. Love your touches of fall on the porch, also.

  2. Lavender with pewter is a perfect combination…very classic! And I like your other tiered items as well, especially the cheery autumn welcome outside your door.

  3. Hi Ellen, I meant to visit and leave you a comment almost two weeks ago, when I originally noticed this post. This is how things have been around here for the last several months — busy, busy. 🙂 I really enjoyed this post; I absolutely love pewter and lavender, and all of yours if beautiful! I have a few pewter pieces, and I would definitely like to have some more. It is cozy and always makes me think of fall and winter. Your tiered tray is very pretty!

    I also like your other displays; the nesting dolls are wonderful and such a great part of your heritage. I always enjoy your posts and I thank you for your visits and kind comments. I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you.

    Have a great week!

    Hugs,

    Denise
