Our Christmas mantle, twinkle lights, greenery, starfish, and paperwhites.

Pretty Shelf Redo

Okay, Okay!  No more posts, for a while at least, with the month name in the title.  So perhaps just a random photo today.  This shelf is in our bathroom and I saw a photo somewhere, online or in a magazine, that inspired me to change out what had been there to this.  Apothecary jar of soaps, tins holding misc. bathroomy stuff, bamboo that has finally found a happy home in the humidity here and is reaching toward the ceiling,  old empty frame.  And of course, a pretty candle.

 

 

Happy Tuesday!

Autumn Decorating

Just a few touches of Autumn decorating in our home so far.  I don’t have too much Halloween decor, no scarecrows on my porch or bones strewn about the yard (Hi Michelle).  I will be happy if we carve a pumpkin this year.  And inside, there’s more a feeling of fall and harvest and handmade, so I thought I’d share a few pictures of how I welcome this season.

 

Hydrangeas in my thrifted white pottery (this is just a tiny portion of that collection).  The little black crow is from the dollar store but needed something so he got a diamond brooch and bow tie.  This pumpkin is also from the dollar store and is decoupaged with old yellowed book pages and perched atop a wood candlestick.

 

 

Think he looks better here.

 

 

 

Our mantle complete with twinkle lights, for added twinkle of course, more white pottery, hydrangeas,  and another crow.  This one is tin and came from Restoration Hardware many years ago.

 

I bought that picture at a garage sale for two dollars with the intent of painting the frame black and adding a mirror but that hasn’t happened yet.  And it may not  because this has kind of grown on me.

 

I like birds in decorating though I would never have a pet bird.  And though crows usually seem rather ominous and foreboding, mine are welcoming and friendly, right?   At least they don’t make that annoying “caw caw” noise and land in the street to eat. . .whatever is there, or fly at your head.

 

 

How do you decorate for Autumn?
