Autumn Entry

I thought I'd share what's happening here in the entry hall this Fall. Nothing too different, just some subtle changes with some leaves added to the white basket of hydrangeas, and the terrarium/lantern now has a candle and some Fall foliage instead of my two sheep. Some of these pics were shared at Marty's last Friday, but I hadn't posted them here yet. So, just in case you missed seeing them.

My moss covered initial "O" made by my sis for me for Christmas last year.
(thought I'd better explain, no, it's not a zero)
It's been hanging here all year, I just love it!

One of my real pumpkins landed in the cast iron urn along with a few bittersweet vines. This urn usually sits on the entry console with a faux flower arrangement, but I brought in another arrangement that I've had for awhile, just for a little change up.

Almost impossible to see,
but my little concrete squirrel is sitting on top of an old book stack 
with a few clay pots, happily munching on acorns.

An old print of  "The Angelus" by Millet, 
brings in the earthy tones of Autumn.

And it's just not Fall without a chipmunk or two...or three.
(This little guy is one of my vintage Lefton figurines)

We had rain and another cool front come through...
aahhhhh, it's really feeling like Fall!

  25. So very pretty -- I love the subtle colors and the way you've combined it all. I had to do a double take on the picture -- my husband bought that at an antique mall last year -- he loved it and it hangs in his office now.

  26. Squirrels and chipmunks?! Oh my!!! I am loving this, think I will talk "her" into doing this when Halloween is over and the decor can move to fall only! Ah I am dreaming of squirrels and chipmunks!!! And these are the kind that don't move to fast for me ;) Of course if I really wanted to catch one I could. I think.....
