This Week on the Sideboard

This is the buffet/sideboard in the kitchen hallway, one of my favorite spots for some seasonal decor.(gee, I say that alot) I think I've had several different vignettes here this Fall, but this rendition has been the most fun, using one of my old windows and some more black/white elements.





My sister made the adorable Boo banner using her Silhouette machine.
Mine has scaredy cats with green glitter eyes.




















I've had this old mint condition Remington typewriter for years, but I'm just now using it in a real vignette.



The gobblers are waiting in the wings for the Thanksgiving re-do coming next week.



We were in St. Louis for a long weekend visiting the kids.
We always have such a great time, but I wear myself out.
Eating and shopping non-stop...you know how tiring that can be!
I only took a few pictures but I'll share some tomorrow.
OK, laundry is calling me, but I'm trying to ignore it.
I plan on staying in my pjs all day.

linking up with these fun parties

  1. Hi Debra,

    I love it! I think I have half of the same things as you--scale, window, typewriter, birds--ha ha. I'll chalk it up to great minds thinking alike. :)

    Have a great day.

  6. I love the raven and the typewriter together. Love the whole vignette but who would have thought a typewriter would be so appropriate for Halloween?

  7. You know, Debra, your vignettes, and your home, and your blog just get more beautiful as time goes by. They really are as good or better than anything I see in books and magazines and all over the web. I guess I should have added your photography skills...that is a large part of it, isn't it?

  41. Yeah girl...I feel your pain. Shopping AND eating...it's a tough job, but someone has to do it.
    If I need to know what month or season it is...all I have to do is come visit you to get it right.
