Vintage Brown Drip Autumn...

Thank you to Susan for hosting Tablescape Thursday again. Please check out her fun, Halloween  tablescape after leaving here!

I fell in love with "Brown Drip" pottery several years ago and started collecting pieces.  I have a variety of Hull and McCoy, and lucked into a whole box of around thirty pieces for $20 from an antiques dealer. I decided to use it since the brown is so nice for Fall. Enjoy!!

Hull plates, Walmart napkins and chargers, napkin rings from Bed, Bath and Beyond. The sterling flatware is by Wallace, "Louvre" from 1893.

The candle holders from Big Lots, filled with potpourri...

Imperial Glass amber goblet, "Old Williamsburg." Amber tumbler is by Hazel-Atlas, "Dots." Below, goblet from Wal-mart with Imperial Glass goblet.

I made the table runner out of this lovely paisley from a local fabric store...

Hull pitcher with real fall foliage from outside...

Thank you all for visiting and for the wonderful ideas I get when I visit your blogs! Please come back Friday for Apple Crisp...

    I was impressed as soon as you said you made the table. Not only is your tablescape beautiful, the entire room is beautiful. The table by candlelight, stunning. I really enjoyed my visit.

    What a beautiful tablescape! I love your set you collected. It's fun to find something we love and then collect it. I always worry they will stop producing before I finish my collection. Thanks for sharing. Happy Fall!

    Very pretty fall tablescape -- love your brown drip dishes -- I've noticed them on several tables lately and it's really pretty. Love the way you've encorporated it.

  10. Your vintage brown dip pottery is perfect for fall. Love it with the amber glassware. Beautiful table.

  11. Happy Fall! Your tablescape is beautiful! Please stop by for a visit soon.

  12. Oh that is so pretty...Such lovely Fall colors and textures..Great job!

  13. Anita,
    I am a new follower and just love your table! I'm a fan of brown drip and have a rather "eclectic" (meaning mis-matched!) set I've collected over the years. I think I'm going to post a tablescape with them next week for our first fall weenie roast! Thanks the great ideas.

  14. Interesting post as I had no idea they called this brown drip. Your table looks so inviting and the cobbler sounds like a great way to end a perfect meal during these cooler days and nights. Thanks for sharing all with me.

  15. HI! Just found your blog from a comment you left at Debbie's on RMS! This table is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!! I love all the details AND the fact that you found some WONDERFUL bargains! I LOVE doing tablescapes and have many posted on RMS. Do you participate in Tablescape Thursday over at Between Naps On the Porch???? If not, you have GOT to check it out!!!! You will love it! Pinky

  16. PS, forgot to say how BEAUTIFUL the table is!!!!! GREAT job! You must be VERY handy!!!! Pinky

  17. I am a new follower and have throughly enjoyed going thru past posts. Impressed that you made this beautiful table by upcycling!!!! I have the same hazel atlas tumblers along with the matching pitcher- just love the amber color-envious of your hull "brown drip" collection.
