More from Leola's Open House

I couldn't get all the photos in my first post of the Fall Open House,
If you missed it, be sure and scroll back to last Tuesday's post.

Leola's is located in Ozark, Missouri
right behind Lambert's on 17th Street.
20 miles north of Branson and 4 miles south of Springfield.
on Highway 65.


Hope you're having lots of Fall fun!

love ya all,

Vintage Inspiration Friday #3

My Fall decorating is more in the category of
"nature inspired"
 rather than out and out Halloween.
I have a few favorite black cat items and figurines,
but I really love the look of fall leaves, pumpkins,
 mums and bittersweet, that can take me through
the middle of November.

The pumpkins and mums are just starting
 to make it to the corner farm stands,
so I'm still looking for some inspiration for my front porch,
which right now is somewhere between
late Summer (impatiens)
and Fall. (a wreath with real bittersweet berries)

not a particularly good look....

So today I put together my
Fall Pumpkin Topiary
 in my entry hall.
At least you're not confused when you come inside.

Following images from google
if you know the source please let me know.

Once again, inside, I'm using faux pumpkins.

Due to a few unfortunate tumbling pumpkin incidents last year,
I've hot glued these babies for this season.

I just wish I had two of these monster concrete urns for my porch.
I'm wanting to do something a little more "traditional"
this year out front.
I have an idea that just may work.
stay tuned...

Hope you join in on
Vintage Inspiration Friday
and let us know what's inspiring you this week.
Please be sure to link back to
this blog, Common Ground, within your post,
so others can join the party.

Hope you have a great weekend!

"Falling" for some fun new pieces...

My jewelry gene has been activated this week!
I have some new elements I've been working with.
Some found vintage jewelry pieces
 that were waiting to take the spotlight.

Brass engraved tags,
some sparkle, old keys and charms,
added to pearls and mixed chains.

Come by and visit the Etsy Store or the Petite Boutique
for a better look.

Hope to see you tomorrow night for
 Vintage Inspiration Friday!
