Since Fall is my favorite time to decorate the house,
I also love gathering my odds and ends for decorating The Holiday Cupboard.
I've tried to make it "The Ironstone Cupboard",
or "The Transfer ware Cupboard"
or "The White Only Cupboard",
but I just can't make those stick.
It always becomes "The Holiday Cupboard".
It's the odd kitchen cupboard and the little chippy dresser that got married.
I always enjoy a good love story, don't you?
It's downstairs in my little sitting area that I showed you yesterday.
This time of year I like to bring in the oranges to compliment the white.
And there are always a few stray squirrels, owls and pumpkins
that need a place to live.
...so they end up here.
There usually is a gardening and nature theme going on
along with whatever "Holiday" might be coming up.
These open books are two old nature encyclopedias from the early 1900's.
My new little "Be-Owled" frames found a spot here, too.
Each time I show the Holiday Cupboard I'm asked about the white suitcases on top. I just used several coats of white interior latex and a lot of time. A small roller on the larger parts and an artist's brush for painting around the hardware. I have several more ratty suitcases that need this paint treatment. I'm a sucker for an old suitcase, if the price is right.
For previous Fall Holiday Cupboard renditions,
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend,
it turned cool after a day of rain.
Almost time for boots.
