Fall Vignette on the Farmtable

I wanted to have a little fun this week with one of my vintage birdcages and a sassy little blackbird that I've had for a few years. He didn't fare very well during the move, as his cute little paper hat became unattached. I did the easy thing and used some transparent tape to get it back on. Don't look too close. He's almost good as new.

I really love having my farmtable (farm table?) out in the Garden Room because it's so easy to see, yet we don't use it much. It's a large flat surface just begging to have decor "vignetted" all over it. I've been using my old ice cream bucket since mid-Summer when I noticed that it was looking a little "chewed" while out on the back porch. Yes, we have a few of those little squirrel and chipmunk friends who tend to be teething.... all over my vintage wooden goodies. (shelves, signs, birdhouses, with lots of nuts stashed around)

Back to my friend in the birdcage. so cute with his little orange ruffled collar.

hmmm. I need to work on the tape fix.

Here is the little guy a couple of years ago hanging out in another vintage birdcage.

You can tell by the pumpkins on the table that I try out different elements
before I decide. Then I'll tweak it more a bit later.

I don't know if I've ever shown this old metal tray before. It looks like some old grocery store transit tray. Like maybe to move around bread or packaged goods. Love the orange color. It's holding a couple of my wool pumpkins that I don't bring out until the weather gets cooler. I like to use them for Thanksgiving, since wool pumpkins are a little odd at 90 degrees.

My lighted pumpkin is in my PB urn.
 It looks super cute when the lights are low in the Garden Room. 

I've had to bring a few of my outside ferns and small plants inside,
 so it's looking a little "greenhouse-y"

This is a pic from last week's tabletop vignette.
I do change things up frequently.
 I have 2 of this size PB lanterns and I wanted to try filling one with gourds and pumpkins.
I was using the lantern early this month before I put together the birdcage.

When the landscape work started I brought my new plaid pillow covers inside
from the front porch. Dust and mud alternating making a big mess.
We're making progress... slow, but progress.

Have a great weekend, friends.

  2. Love your garden room and love all the pretty fall colors against your whites. Happy Weekend Debra.

  3. Your garden room is always such a lovely place to visit! I love how you have dressed up your little black bird with his ruffled collar and little paper hat! You must really enjoy styling this table in this bright room!

  4. I started looking for twig pumpkins too late in the season. I need to try again next year. I sure love yours!! And the little crepe paper collars on animals are so dang cute.
    Happy Autumn Deb!! ~Shannon

  5. I love how you're having fun changing things up so much, Debra. Little crow is like us...sometimes ya just need to straighten the crown and go on!
    Looking forward to seeing that landscape progress!

  6. Your styling is always spot on.

    Now I want to get out my old birdcage and fill it with something.

  7. Debra, this Garden room sure is pretty. Your crow sure is styling with his collar, love it. This is a pretty birdcage. You made this warm and welcoming with your touches.

    Hope you had a great weekend.


  8. I love your little crow. I chuckle when a crow ends up in a birdcage. So funny to me. I love your plaid pillow. The lighted pumpkin is fantastic.

  9. Debra, this is lovely. Such a pretty bird cage to show off your treasure. The pumpkin on top of the urn is so pretty. You have really styled your room beautifully.

  10. My gosh I can't keep up with all your lovely fall decor! And that crow is just precious! Make me want to get one of my vintage bird cages and start decorating! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm. Pinned! xo Kathleen
