October is here...

Can you believe we are in October already?
 Well, you know what that means, right?
Time to bring out the Halloween decorations. 
The above is a new addition to my calavera (skull) collection. 
Just love the beautiful artistry of these hand painted calaveras.
Do you decorate for Halloween?

Wishing everyone a very
Happy October!

Fall Inspired Sideboard

Happy Fall Everyone!

Today is officially the first day of Autumn and to celebrate I would like to share my Fall inspired french style sideboard.
Nice and Simple.
The wooden box filled with my absolute favorite flower, the hydrangea, was created by Hubby out of a recycled pallet crate.
And the three beautiful pillar candle holders were a gift from our very sweet neighbors.
Cute little white ceramic pumpkins are from Dollar Tree. 
So, do you decorate for Fall too?

Wishing everyone a wonderful 1st day of Fall.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit.

Hugs and Kisses,

Coffee Table Vignette and Pillows

It may not feel like Autumn around here with all the hot weather we've been having but it sure does look like Autumn in our petite cottage. Today I'd like to share with you my Autumn inspired coffee table vignette.
Created with items I already had...
The candles, which by the way are battery operated (How cool is that?) the pretty little silver plate and the silver tray under everything were all thrift store finds from a while back. The stalked books I covered with brown paper bag paper and held them together with some lace. And the little bling bling magnet holding the "Hello Autumn" sign I  made out of a Dollar Store ring...Oh, and can you spy with your little eye the little pillow in the background that says "Blessings"? I made it and another that says "Thankful" a couple of days ago.
Here's a little closer look at my chicken wire cloche filled with fabric pumpkins.
I love, love, love birdies so I always try to incorporate them in my decor. These two cuties I bought at Michel's two or three years ago, if memory serves me well...Hee, hee. hee.
Here's the other pillow I made. I used an ink especially made for fabric and some letter stamps on some vintage raw silk fabric I've had forever. So what do you think? And are your ready for Autumn?

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. 
Wishing you a wonderful new week.

Hugs and Kisses,

Autumn Vignette

Hi Everyone!

I've been working on some Autumn inspired vignettes all around our petite living room. On our coffee table, sideboard, side tables and in this little corner of the room... 
It's this little space between the kitchen and living room...right next to the chimney.
The little vintage table and trophy cup were both thrift store finds...Oh wait, and the tiny little oil can too.
This frame was a garage sale find. I just added a piece of plywood and painted it with chalkboard paint. I'm sure you've seen it before. I've had it for a while.

The vintage baby shoe forms I found at an antique mall. The little greenery ball is from Hobby Lobby.
Here's a closer look...Oh, almost forgot the little tarnished silver tray. It's also a thrift store find.
And at the very bottom, a wicker basket filled with pine cones and old books. All presented to you by the number 3...Hee, hee, hee.

In the next days I'll be sharing more of my Autumn inspired vignettes so won't you come back again soon?

Wishing you all a wonderfully blessed day.

Hugs and Kisses,
