My Favorite Urn...For Fall


I've had this Pottery Barn Urn for the last 5 years I think, and I have to say it's one of my favorite pieces to use in decor. It's almost always in use no matter what the season, but Fall has to be my favorite look. 



It's just the right size to plop in a big fat pumpkin, 
no matter whether it's faux or real.

Silhouette Script Chalkboard

I think most of us love a good chalkboard.
Big, small, simple or ornate;
vintage or new,
embellished script or childlike letters
...decorated for the Season.



But I'm not so good when it comes to hand lettering,
so I asked my Sis to help me out with a short message 
using her Silhouette machine.

Fall Container Plantings

I've been searching inspiration for doing some plantings for Fall out front
and I came across literally hundreds of examples of containers filled
with all the gorgeous colors of Autumn.

I tried to keep it to elements that were actually plantings,
so I thought I'd share just a little of all the many beautiful ideas.

Flora and Fern and a "Married Metals" Bench

I mentioned awhile back that Springfield has had several fun new shopping venues open up, and the latest one I want to share with you is Flora and Fern, which is right next door to the new Harrison House Market. It's full of wonderful vintage displays, topiaries, orchids, large and small potted plants and trees, and unique accessories including jewelry.

Early Fall Entry with a new Chalkboard Print

With each new season I try to create a vignette that's something a little different than I've done before. That's not always easy because there are tried and true elements that I'm happy with and just look "right". The lamp, the clock, and the shutters and mirror; those are all part of this spot. But I love to play with faux flowers, and then add a seasonal print, painting, or needlework... and what's a Fall Entry Vignette without at least one pumpkin?

Painted Leaf Fall Wreath

Hi Everyone, I know you all are probably getting some Fall decor out of storage, and searching Pinterest for some fresh ideas and inspiration. I knew I wanted to try to create a new wreath for the Kitchen Sitting Area, but I also knew I wanted it to be neutral. I love the colors of Autumn, but wanted to try using something that was in shades of white, cream, grays, and tans....

Vintage Owl Vignette and an Update

First of all, I'm having a little issue with Blogger. I'm not sure why, but it's decided each time I have to edit a post that it wants to "republish" and act like I just published it. This is getting old and I've tried scheduling the old time, but it's doing it any way. Anyone else having this annoying problem? I imagine a few of you are wondering about my sanity and blogging ethics. I hope it fixes itself soon, I feel like I'm walking around with toilet paper stuck to my shoe...

I wanted to share my new-to-me vintage concrete owl that I found at The Vintage Peddler last week. Isn't he a cutie; just the right amount of white chippy-ness!

New Shops at the Vintage Peddler

(I'm sorry, my blog keeps updating on it's own each time 
I join a new party and add it on my blog post...)

 I never know what to call someplace that's so totally unique...
separate spaces housed in an old manufacturing building;
shared by a group of extremely talented vendors.
A place full of vintage and curated pieces;
some new artisans and remarkable stylists,
all with a passion for antiques and vintage.

Welcome to the Vintage Peddler

Welcome to September...

Hi Everyone, are you like me and get excited when you can turn over that calendar page and see that it's finally September? It may still be hot outside, but in our little Fall Lovin' Hearts we know we can now actually put a pumpkin on our blog and not have to disguise it as "Fall Inspiration"!!
