Now that it's the middle of August it was time to change up my Hallway Sideboard. I'm bringing in the colors of Nature's late Summer palette, in exchange for my little wheelbarrow full of garden produce. Golds and muted colors of late Summer are evident in the dried hydrangeas, breadboards, basket, and the little English Cottage tray.
I've been collecting these rattan lunch hampers for the last several years. I've stacked them on an old white bench to add some height and balance to this long stretch of wall.
We hung this old window a couple of years ago, and I've enjoyed having it as a backdrop for my other wall decor. I love the look of layering vintage pieces, especially mirrors and prints. I found this great Sunflower botanical print last year at Robin's Vintage Suitcase.
My white antique French Ironstone tureen has been pretty much a staple here, finding it's way into whatever season it might be.
The little paper mache tray fit right in to the back of the hamper filled with old china.
Some dried hydrangeas with just a hint of lavender and green are sitting inside this old pottery canister. Anyone know what language this is and what it says?
This pedestal is Staffordshire, entitled "The Meet".
This other little pedestal plate is Johnson Brothers.
The big breadboard is from Antique Farmhouse
and the smaller ones are vintage.
I think this ought to hold me until September.
That's when the pumpkins come out...
...and for those of you that think I put things together like a breeze...
this little display took me three days and several renditions before
I finally settled on this one.
what can I say, the pumpkins were wanting to come out.
