What's on the sideboard this month...

Happy Weekend Everyone...

This is a rainy and cool one here in SW Missouri. But after this year's extreme heat and drought it will be a long time before I complain about rainy and cool. nope...happy for the change in seasons here. I wanted to share a few more spaces around the house that I've been decorating for Fall, so a rainy gray day doesn't effect the hall sideboard. It's always gray and hard to photo since there isn't any natural light. I always feel like I have to start off with an apology for the photos. They're never very good because I have to have all the bright lights on just to get anything remotely usable. But here goes...





I changed out my galvanized flower bucket
 for a wheat sheaf and some Fall apples and pears.
(oooh, and I found this great burlap-y linen wired ribbon, too)









I added in a fruit lithograph from the early 1900's, to the vintage window hanging there. I love that old window as a backdrop to my seasonal displays. Actually, I have a pair of these old lithographs, companion pieces, but this is my favorite with all the Autumn fruit in still life. I bought them both for about $40 at an antique mall here. I think the frames were the deterrent for them not selling at a much higher price The frame had been painted gold, but I decided to distress them down, and then realized they had been white underneath. I like the finish much better now. White, but with some of the gold still showing.



Here's my latest velvet pumpkin baby that I bought yesterday; so yummy in a creamy antique white. It has the real pumpkin stem which I love.




Still using the old metal tray with fruit. 
Love these dark rich colors for Autumn.


and my wine crates...



As you can see, things didn't change a lot with my sideboard tweaking. Just changed out the sunflower theme for a more Fall feeling with the fruit, wheat, berries, and pumpkins.

I noticed while I was out yesterday
 that the mum and pumpkin stand is opening, 
I'll be there soon!!!

  2. You feel like you should apologize for the pictures?? I know that feeling, but in my case it's appropriate. Yours, however, are great! We'd never know you were working with a lighting "situation". The fall vignette is so pretty!

  3. Love your new white velvet pumpkins, Debra! I also love your tureen. It looks a lot like the one I picked up at GW a month or so ago. I'm using mine in my Fall decorating, too.

  14. Oh is that ever gorgeous. I love how you always add so many beautiful natural elements. I am so jealous of your cooler weather. I dream of rain and cool days. I fear it will never come for us.

  15. Hey Debra!
    Lucky you with the rain and coolness...107 here today. You know we have 80 degree weather sometimes on Christmas,so I do not know why I act surprised with the heat in Fall :)I love the side board,I too mixed my whites and creams with autumn rust and golds. I really need to get those photos posted of my Fall house. I am so glad Debra is happy with her order,I hope she sells out quickly and comes back for more.

    Smiles and Blessings,
    sheila

  31. I LOVE your new pumpkin!!! I've been wanting to make some of those. I see them everywhere but, I still don't have one. So pretty. I did pack up the shells & beachy things making ready for fall. Moved the fall picture into the living area... but, it's not all done yet in the works. You're soooooooo ahead of me & everything looks beautiful! Enjoy
