A little aubergine for autumn...

I don’t know that this technically qualifies as aubergine (it’s probably closer to purple), but I hope you’ll forgive the stretch ~ I couldn’t resist the alliteration.
People always think of orange and browns and yellows when it comes to autumn, but I am also drawn to the deep purples and maroons. Since I have a wonderful old collection of purple transferware, I thought I would use a couple of pieces as the centerpiece for an autumn display on the sideboard in the dining room. The bright floral and butterfly tray that was there was just too summery.
All in all, it’s a simple display, but pretty. And much more suited to the season.
Wishing all of you a lovely week...
