Combining Fall & Vintage Decorations

Monday, September 29, 2014

I love to decorate with pumpkins for the fall season. They can carry you from Halloween straight into Thanksgiving with minor tweaking, saving you time and money. This weekend I visited the produce stand and created some lovely fall touches for my home combined with vintage items of course.
In the sun room, I added a rustic wooden box, sitting on old quilt squares and filled it with white pumpkins and Indian corn.
In the dining room, I used a combination of pine cones, acorns and more white pumpkins in an old wooden bowl and added pretty green, orange and white stripped gourds to set the table.
 In the living room, stacked pumpkins on a vintage silver tray, sit on the coffee table...
...and more pumpkins and vintage glass/silver trays are on the mantle.
Old silver mouth pieces from band instruments have double duty.
They serve as tiny vases that hold black chicken feathers with salvaged black and orange seam binding and also hold the "Boo" sign that hangs over the fireplace.
It is actually a "Boo! Boo!" sign. I made this last year from old book pages and black ink. My grandson, Levi, who was five at the time, was visiting and asked for three book pages. He returned shortly with his own version of my lettering. I love, love, love that boy!!
The final touch was at the back door and included old flower pots, a galvanized bucket, mums and one last pumpkin.
The changing of the seasons is always a mix of sadness and excitement. We're saying goodbye to that which is ending and looking with anticipation to what possibilities lie ahead.
