Late Summer Sideboard...

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.

  8. Hi Debra, I love the breadboards as a background to this loveliness. You tickled me with the three days as I have been monkeying with a gallery wall and as I measure nothing it is a hoot. blessings, olive

  14. Love it, Debra! I love the cutting boards, I have several that I tried to style before my daughter's shower this past weekend. Like you, it took longer that just a few minutes, so I had to nix it for the shower. I love the wood patina and how it grounds the vignette.

  15. Hi Debra! Oh, this is just beautiful! Every item you've added is just perfect. You could poke a paper bag with rocks on the side and make it pretty! :)
    Be a sweetie,

  32. I came to your website from the Ella Claire link party. I love your sideboard arrangement! It includes beautiful, soft colors and different textures. You did a great job. I understand about taking several days. Sometimes something is just not right but it takes some time to really define what it is and how to fix it. I'm going to sign up for email updates for your blog.

  33. I forgot to add that I love the way you layer the display starting with the old window and burlap runner. Really wonderful ideas with which I am going to experiment to see if I can make something beautiful too!

  34. Debra, the two transfer ware pedestal plates are just beautiful and perfect for late summer. I can see that they may hang around when the pumpkins arrive. I hear you about this arrangement taking three days. Sometimes,it takes me longer. :) And for creative crafty projects, let's not even think about how long they take. I am amazed when someone says that just took one hour!
