Nature Inspired Autumn Urn

I've had this Nature Inspired Autumn Urn in my head since last Spring, when I picked up a Victoria Magazine Special Edition, called Victoria Classic French Cottage . I'm hoping it will become a yearly publication, because it was filled with wonderful features of French and French Inspired Cottages. There was one particular image that completely captured my imagination, from an article called Living With The Past.

Comtemplating a New Fall Centerpiece...

That's what is going on...

I'm thinking about a new centerpiece display for the Dining Room Table. I haven't really made a commitment yet, because I'm not ready to start bringing the turkeys out. But since October is flying by, I'm putting together some ideas. It's a work in progress...

Out and About at Leola's Vintage Home

Hey Everyone...
I have a few pics to share from a recent visit to Leola's Vintage Home and Garden in Ozark, Missouri. I didn't make the Fall Open House, which is always a high point for me, but I knew they would still be packed with fun items for Halloween and Fall. Just walking in here fills me with inspiration, no matter what the season.

Kitchen Counter Vignette

Do you have a spot in your house 
where things are moved around...
added and subtracted...
left for days
 because you don't know how to use them in your decor?

...a glorified "staging area".
waiting to be blogged about...
hoping to make the cut?

An October Entry

My house tends to look a bit overdone if I'm not careful;
especially this time of year.
OK...most of the time it's a little too cluttered.
Blame it on blogging and enjoying sharing it all with you.

Out and About for some Fall Fun

We're really fortunate to have so many wonderful antique shops, flea markets, boutiques, and tea rooms, here in Springfield, and the surrounding area. You can spend several days and you still couldn't see all that they offer. Delicious food, great antiques, fun vintage treasures to find...and most of all we have some fabulous local talent.

An Old Quilt and New Pillows in the Sitting Area

 Now that it's "Mid October" it's
time to bring more of the rich Fall colors
 into the Kitchen Sitting Area.

Blue Willow Transferware Tureen


So, let me ask you a question...
Do you do "Blue and White"?
Do you have an obsession with 
Blue and White Urns, Ginger Jars, Tureens, Transferware,
and all things Blue?




Me?...not so much.

A little surprise from Victoria...

I was looking back through some of the latest Fall Posts, on Victoria Magazine's Website/Blog, when I happened to see this photo from their Victoria Blog: Mad about Plaid post. I looked closer...Wow! I was totally surprised and thrilled to see my photo from 2013 of my Fall Tablescape, Nature Inspired Thanksgiving Tablescape, where I showcased one of my vintage Pendleton Blanket Throws. I'm honored to be in such wonderfully talented company!

Front Porch for Fall

I finally have the front porch put together.
It's a small little porch, and I've been warned  asked
not to cram too much out here.
That's a hard one...

It's Fall,
 and that means mums,
 pumpkins,
 and my black wagon.

Snow Owls on the Mantel

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

It just wouldn't be October on the Mantel without my little Snow Owls. A few years ago white owls were the latest addition to the Fall Scene, and that reminded me of what a fad owls were in the early 70's. All the poor homely little ceramic owls that had been packed away or sold at garage sales started to make a comeback on the shelves of flea markets and antique malls. They were still homely, but I had a plan...

Wheelbarrows, Wagons, and "Hoo" Else?

Hey Friends, I just wanted to share a few pics with you, as I'm getting the front porch readied for my favorite month... October! I've had some mums out, and my door basket decorated for Fall, but I wanted to wait and share it all with you when I had my French Goat Cart decorated. I was going to use real pumpkins, but I decided to repaint some of my faux stash, and just ended up with them instead.
