This and That

I had a few sets of photos I wanted to share, but they weren't very "blog worthy" by themselves, so hey, I just threw them all in this one "pot", kind of like a bloggy soup! These first ones are of my back deck a few weeks ago. This is what I see when I look out my kitchen window above my sink, so I like to have something interesting to view. Love this old vintage ice cream maker bucket on a vintage garden chair. The washed out blue and gold really speaks to me. I "planted" my mums this year in pots other than the store containers. Having extra soil around them has enabled them to stay nicer longer.

My old picnic tin with mums.

My metal garden table 
made from a married old furnace grate and sewing machine base.
That's my kitchen window.

These next photos are from the Antiques Festival of the Ozarks,
which was last Saturday, Oct. 29, before Halloween.
This show had a lot quality antiques and collectibles,
and I loved this display with the kitty hanger and fur collar.

The next few photos are from Pheona's Antiques in Billings, MO.
They have a great once a month sale with lot's of dealers inside the
adorable Victorian house, and more on the lawn. 
Their Christmas Open House starts next Friday evening.
Check out Sheila's blog for info.

I was shooting on automatic,
 so my photo of this great seed cabinet from Ohio isn't very good. 
It was amazing, with individual glass jars that once held bulk seed.
The cabinet below is for bulk herbs.
The old seed graphics were just wonderful,
I didn't even ask the price...

And finally my mantel downstairs for Fall.
 I found this great oil painting of an Autumn landscape
 in a shabby white frame a few years ago.
I like to change out my prints for the season.

Ironstone pitchers and vase with my Bird Frames that I did last Spring.

Those crows really got around this Fall!

Vintage Inspiration Friday

Hope you enjoyed the "soup"!

Oh, and be watching for a wonderful
