Fall Colors On The Kitchen Counter



Pin It

Orange, purple and turquoise on my kitchen counter, celebrating Fall. Pretty awesome color combination, it lifts up my spirits :) The engine for this seasonal vignette are the two little serving dishes in the front. I found them at the local supermarket and I just had to have them. The turquoise one is shaped like a pear, and the purple one is the shape of an apple, as you can see below:



Pretty cool, I am almost sorry that I don't throw any formal parties. They would be the attraction on the Autumn table, for sure. Maybe I can whip up something for breakfast... Anyway, for now I've got sweet white grapes, a handful of seabuckthorn rich in Vitamin C and a lovely two-shade heather in the back - all the goodies of the harvest. I am gonna make me some seabuckthorn tea right now, to prevent the cold.

    1. You have them too? Than I love them even more (because I think that all your stuff is so cool!) When I bought mine, I had to choose from red, turquoise, lime green and purple. If I were a millionaire with a huge cupboard, I could have bought them all:)

  2. Then the plates were fine :)
    Liked the color combination .. purple, turquoise.
    You just have to try something (if you have not tried it then) freeze the grapes in the freezer.
    It is so good with frozen grapes;)

    Wishing you a great weekend!

    1. I freeze raspberries every year, but now I must try with grapes, too! My father taught me to eat grapes with brown bread, have you tried that? Thanks for the tip and have a happy weekend, too!

  3. I didn't know what seabuckthorn is, I had to google translate it in my language. Unfortunally, I still don't know, we don't have that around here. But we have plenty of rose hip growing wild in fields, that's kind of tea that we drink to prevent cold :)
    I like you autumn colors!

    1. Ana, that is so funny! I went to the forest on Tuesday morning and got seabuckthorn, rosehip and hawthorn. We make tea from all of them to fight the cold :)

    1. Christine, I boiled the water and added 2 teaspoons of seabuckthorn and boiled them together for one more minute. Then I smashed the fruit and cleared the tea and also added honey. The right way to do it is to dry the fruit (in the oven or on a ceramic stove), put it in the grinder and then use the powder for infused tea :) It tastes a little sour, but it's very healthy!
