Entry with a Vintage Sunflower Print

I hadn't done much if anything, different with my Entry Area since I received the wonderful Sheep Print from Canvas Pop, earlier in the year. But now it's time for a little more "Late Summer" sprinkled around in here. 






I have lots of smaller antique and vintage prints that I like to rotate with the seasons on this spot, and this one is my favorite for this time of year. The roadsides are full of Black-Eyed Susans in Missouri, and this old print with it's Sunflowers and bright summer flowers brought in some of those deep "almost Fall" colors. It's in a vintage frame, I've thought about lightening it up a little and may do so. It's faily rustic looking in a burgundy, with a dark green accent and gold on the braiding.


(I had to move the print to the hearth to get a pic without window glare)







I found a few summery faux flower sprigs and put them in one of my old silver teapots for the silver tray on the entry console. I don't change things up much on this, but I like a few different seasonal accessories.




Lamby-Pie is still here on her stacks of books...







I took the old coat rack downstairs, it's big and bulky and we don't use it up here. The little black goat cart is sitting here for now. In a few weeks it will be filled with Fall pumpkins and flowers. yay.



The week after the 4th of July, I traded out my Patriotic Flower Basket for some Sunflowers and Hydrangeas. For now, the Springtime, green checked burlap ribbon is back. Looks like I need to straighten out the little accent sticks. It's easy for me to get this lopsided on this door, it's super tall and like everything else it needs a stepladder. To get a good pic, I have to open the door and take it from inside, all the while trying to make sure cats are not escaping.



In the latest round of opening storage boxes, I found this metal ivy container and topiary that I'd had in the living room at the old house, so it's here, now. This isn't a big area, so I'm trying to keep things out of the way.




Over the weekend we made an overnight trip to Montauk State Park which is East of here, it's another trout fishing river and by far the best camping spot we've seen yet. The clear cold river is shallow enough to walk from bank to bank in most places. It snakes through the wooded camping spots, and has an amazing quality to it; so clean and clear. Just wading in it cooled you down from the 105 degree heat index. Since there are so many places for the fishermen to stake out, it's not crowded or noisy. We could see and hear the rushing water from our camper, and it was the most pleasant, relaxing trip we've had. Lot's of these little guys for company. 

For such a little guy, they have a great big noisy song

  5. I love how you're changing things up more frequently. It's either a sign of your being settled in, and/or your love for fall coming soon. That's the Debra I remember! Love your entry.

    1. thanks Sheila, I love silver, too, but I have a hard time keeping up with it. I don't mind a little tarnish, but when it gets too dark I'm ready to bring out the polish!

  9. Sunflowers are my absolute FAVE! They are such a "happy" flower. I love seeing the sunflowers in California at this time of year. Also, I loved seeing the sunflowers in Provence when I was there 3 years ago. What a pretty piece you have there!
    Best,

  18. Such a lovely arrangement. I like using "late summer" colors this time of year (and well into September) rather than the full-on fall colors.

  20. That is a pretty vintage sunflower picture. It really suits your home well. I love the pretty door display you hung too. It sounds like you're having a heat wave where you live too. isn't it awful? I actually think you're hotter than we are. I'm glad to hear that your last camping trip was so nice. It will keep you coming back for sure.

  24. Hi Debra! That camping trip you took over the weekend sounds really nice! I love the idea of setting up right next to the water. Your entryway looks really pretty, love the pops of yellow with the sunflowers in the print and the vase and your front door. I am kinda sad that summer is almost over and we are talking about fall and pumpkins:). Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful entryway at Dream. Create. Inspire. link. I hope you are having a great week, take care, Tara
