Fall Sofa Table

There's nothing like a little nip in the air to get me thinking about Fall decorating. 
I'm loving the cooler temps, and this morning, I started dragging out totes and boxes of Fall stuff to see what I had from last year.

One of the things I found was a Pashmina scarf that I had, but never wore.
I really like the colors...and thought it would give a little old world feeling to the sofa table in the living room.

I used some of my favorite things to make a reading table...not that I would actually read there, but...you know what I mean.

...the two little dogs sit faithfully on the edge of the ash tray...

...but I use it to hold my tea mug. 

Other faves are an old cast iron bookend...

...some old leather bound books, and a seashell on a wooden box that used to hold tea bags.

It's starting to look like Fall already!
I'm still working on the mantel, so I'll show you that next time.
Hugs, 
Babs

Babs, your sofa table vignette is charming. It's full of warmth for fall. Cute little doggie pieces! My latest GW find was an empty wooden tea box. ;-)

That shawl you're using is beautiful! It set the color scheme up perfectly for your vignette. I love the added pattern it gave the room too.
