Seed Packet Garden Wreath on the Sideboard

Back in 2013 after seeing a few versions of flower pot garden wreaths, I put together my own take using a grapevine wreath as the base with small whitewashed flower pots and French seed labels attached to paper tags. Since I'm such a fan of vintage garden goods and ephemera, I've loved using this each year during the Spring and Summer seasons. I just needed to figure out a place to put it here at this house.

Fall Front Porch and Landscape Beginnings

With temperatures in the 80's and 90's till a week ago, it's taken me a bit to get my front porch decorated for Fall. I didn't go all out this season because I knew that we would be starting our landscape work here in October... and then last weekend we had a killing frost that took out my flowers out back. Thankfully I went ahead and covered the mums out here, not really thinking it would get that cold.

Weekend Inspiration: Wagons and Wheelbarrows for Fall


Hi Friends and Happy Weekend!

I've mentioned before that you can usually tell what I'm up to around here from 
taking a peek at my Pinterest feed. If I have an upcoming project or an idea
 I usually go to Pinterest first to check out inspiration and creative ideas.
 I thought it would be fun to share the inspiration process by bringing you along.

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.

Henpecked...

Hey Everyone, hope you're having a great weekend! We just got home from another doctor's check-up trip to St. Louis. Great progress on my husband's inner ear surgery, and we always have a wonderful visit with the kids and grandpuppy.

I mentioned last week that I had "recycled" my white wheelbarrow with the veggies and rabbit tureen after they made their appearance as a tablescape. I was still lovin' the garden veggie theme, so I made a place for the wheelbarrow on the sideboard in the kitchen hallway.




But I wanted to bring out the hens and chicks for summer, so I changed out the rabbit tureen for a "chicken" tureen. Both of them white ceramic, that usually live in my kitchen china cabinet along with their sister tureen, a duck.









I found the vintage chalkware momma and baby chicken years ago at the flea,
and they are always part of my "Summer" decor.


Here's the "Veggie Garden-Vintage French Seed Packet Label-Flowerpot Wreath".
Try saying that 3 times fast...





I found these order forms in the little seed catalog that I'm sharing here too.
So naturally, they had to be showing garden seeds!







Each time my husband walks by the sideboard
 he's attacked by crazed carrots grabbing onto him.

so sorry...
not.
fine...I'll tuck them in a little better.
Be careful, you might get pecked.
Like I always tell my hubby,
 "Don't mess with my livestock!" 
...or the decor.


(Just being silly)











close quarters and bad lighting.
but I just love this spot.


You wanna know where all the roosters might be?
I have them all corralled downstairs.

Garden Wheelbarrow Tablescape

Anything "Vintage Garden" gets my attention, so when I recently purchased a new magazine called "Southern Tables" by Hoffman Publications, I immediately fell in love with a featured tablescape that brought all the goodness and bounty of Summer's first harvest, indoors.





I had a similar whitewashed small wheelbarrow made of reclaimed barnwood, 
so I filled it with a variety of faux  garden veggies.

(The wheelbarrow has made an appearance before on the deck


 But I felt like my rendition needed a little more personality, 
so a ceramic rabbit tureen that I made years ago hopped inside.


Gardens and rabbits just go together.


You know you have too much "stuff",
 when you completely forget about a set of green transferware china!
Yes, I totally forgot that I had this great set of Enoch Wedgewood Kent china,
that had been stored in the side door of my breakfront.



On one of our recent trips to St. Louis I found three of these wonderful consume/berry bowls and salad plates in "Crown Ducal, Florentine England". They are very old and have a black transfer rural cottage  scene on the bowls and plates that read "Little Comberton". A gold rim and raised green fruit design on the border of the plates/saucers had me smitten.



 









Green Glassware is Martha Stewart



Last week I found the cute little whitewashed Pottery Barn napkin rings that look like flowerpots. Had to have them...and next week I'll show you another fun way I've used them. Woven placemats were from TJ Maxx a couple of years ago, and the linen napkins are just a few of my vintage collection.



I like to set a fun and casual place setting,
so small whitewashed garden pots with a faux lettuce leaf 
hold the silverware.




And vintage French Seed Packet Labels attached to a tag
can be used for place cards. 

 Carotte's...


and Chicoree Frisee


more coming up with the French Seed Packets...




A small ceramic cabbage covered veggie bowl / soup tureen.



...and a French Rabbit Tea Towel from my daughter from Easter.



Lapins de Jardin.


A French botanical print brings in the colors of Spring and Summer.










I'm so glad you came by for my little Garden Setting Luncheon.
salad anyone...?


And don't forget that The Marketplace is live all week.
Hope you'll run by for some shopping fun.
