Harvest Under Glass

I had seen these gorgeous dried sunflower heads in photos from the Texas shows and in magazines, but hadn't seen them for sale. But on our way home from St. Louis we stopped at an antique mall and there they were.  These monstrous beauties intrigue me with their symmetrical rows of seeds and perfect neutral Fall color.






As we move into November and the leaves will soon be off the trees, my decor tends to go to the more neutrals of browns and creams. I transition into Christmas with evergreens mixed into my natural element florals and vignettes; I use less orange, but more browns.










A cloche filled with Fall Potpourri 


I love these little frames from the 40's and 50's.
This one has some Harvest graphics.



I really love taking photos in the Living Room now that things have been lightened and brightened up with the new painted furniture. Before, even though it was light in here, the dark furniture just "sucked up" all the wonderful light.








Hope you're having a fun day and enjoy your evening!

  6. I love the vintage double photo frame. I have one and now I know what to do with it. I'm so excited! I have some old calendars with some lovely autumn and Christmas pages that I could place inside the frames! Thank you for the inspiration!

  12. I love how you style everything, Debra! Such pretty cloches! Doesn't everything just look so much more important under glass?!? I'm crushing on your wee lil pumpkin trinket box, too. I've got a small collection, but no pumpkins!!

    Happy Halloween!

  18. Debra, I love your sunflower seed head, what a treasure and it is so pretty under the cloche. Your vignette is gorgeous. I love your second cloche also with the potpourri. So pretty with the pumpkins, pictures and the soft creams and browns. Fantastic. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  19. Hi Debra... as always, your post today is beautiful!... believe it or not, I am ready to put my Halloween things away, (I know, it is only Halloween today!)... and do my more neutral decorating for the month of November... I love your giant sunflower seedhead under glass... a friend of ours grows those giant ones and always gives us some, but I already put them out for the birds... darnit!... I may have to "borrow" one back from them and put it under a cloche... I love your teeny Limoges type pumpkin box too... so cute!... what I love most about your posts... they are always so warm and welcoming, as if you are saying to me "come on in and sit down Julie Marie"... xoxo Moi

  20. Debra, the sunflower head is splendid. I may have to step into a neighboring field and "acquire" some sunflower heads of my own. Your living room is brighter and I can see you are enjoying it. huggiebear♥O

  26. I love your sunflower head cloche!!! I so agree about transitioning into the creams and browns. It just seems like the natural transition for November and then by Christmas, I'm ready for some more color. Very pretty indeed.

  28. Debra,
    I am smitten with the dried Sunflower head in your glass cloche! "Mr. Ed" grows them here On Crooked Creek...but we always leave them for the birds to eat. The birds make have some rather stiff competion next year! Thank you for sharing this lovely vignette of cloches. Your decor for Autumn with the softer, lighter hues...exquisite!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  35. Debra, Your new header is fabulous! Your fall cloches are GREAT too! I love the cloche on the silver compote and with the sunflower seeds. I have not seen them before. And you are right about how great the light is now in your room. I have to tell you I thought you were crazy to paint your nice wood pieces but I was wrong. They look wonderful. I am crazy about your little white urn since I am partial to urns as much as I like cloches. You have just dazzled us today!
