Welcome to Seasonal Sundays! I decided it was time for me to do some Fall fluffing.
My entryway table got a little makeover.
The Sadler pitcher was a find from this Summer. I love the little floral pattern along the base and handle that lend accent to the scenery.
The carpet balls, in their Fallish colors are from Christmas Tree. A hand-blown ornament tops the bunch.
A key topped with a vintage ribbon upon a book, add just the right amount of interest. My Nana Reis was born in 1901. Her uncle worked in a ribbon factory in Chicago. The ribbon is from my Nana’s collection given to her by her uncle. She gave me her ribbon collection over 30 years ago. Good thing I’m a pack rat! LOL!
The sunroom, which is our TV room too, got a bit of a fluff. The vintage grain sack was from my Brimfield expedition.
I simply stuffed it with a body pillow. I love how the original spout is still intact.
Families could tell their grain sacks apart by the stripe and the initials. Can you imagine taking the time to embroider a grain sack? The work is so detailed.
The mantel got a bit of a makeover too. I was looking for a light and airy feel, but with a touch of Fall.
Hydrangea from the garden in a vintage amber pitcher started the scene.
The handmade palm roses, purchased from the homeless on our recent trip to Savannah, were the perfect addition of texture.
The soft glow of amber…
…was repeated in these pots purchased at a thrift store this summer.
And a quail family, purchased at yet another thrift shop this summer, finished off the mantel.
Of course the kitchen table need to shift seasons too. I keep a runner and arrangement on the table all of the time and add placemats and dishes come mealtime. The runner was a Pier One purchase last year.
The mango wood dough bowl was another Brimfield purchase. Definitely not old, there were just too many of them. Do you ever hesitate in purchasing something because there are just too many of them? I couldn’t decide if I really wanted one as there were stacks and stacks of them at the stand. I’m so glad I brought one home.
The lanterns are a new Christmas Tree purchase.
What have you been doing to fluff your nest this Fall?
