Off to Vermont



Hi Everyone!


I’ll be gone for about 6 days, we are off to Vermont to visit relatives!

I’m hoping I get some great pictures, last time we were there it

snowed 4 inches. I hope it doesn’t this time…I’m so not ready

for that.!



Got to go and finish packing!

Lamp and Boxwood Wreath

Hi everyone, how are you? I’ve been reading how the tree leaves are finally
turning in some of your states, ours trees get more naked everyday what with some
of the windy weather we have had.
I did want to show you what I did after seeing this on 21 Rosemary Lane,
I loved the look of Rosemary’s lamp so I decided
to do the same but then remembered I had one in the basement that wouldn’t need the
Boxwood wreath 007
Didn’t take me long to wrap and hot glue the twine, I also took the burlap shade
from another lamp and put it on this one. The only thing I’m missing is the cute tassel
Rosemary used on hers.

I think it turned out great and such an update on something that I already had and
didn’t cost a penny! Do you like my two little pumpkin spice tins? I’ve had them for
years and always bring them out every fall!

Now I want to show you my boxwood wreath that I got with my credits
from Josh and Main,  I’ve always wanted one! I have it hung on my window that
came from an old milk house.

I’m trying a little bit of red in my home and remembered it was down
in the basement, at first I thought I had sold it but finally found it,
so relieved!
I love ribbon that is used on some things that you buy, this was
wrapped around throw so I always save them to use.
Boxwood wreath 003
So hard taking pictures of this wall! I hung on the narrow wall
coming into the livingroom/diningroom

Remember to stop by Rosemary’s blog to see her lamp, much more amazing
then mine I promise!
Thanks for stopping by hope you have a nice evening!

A Little Bit of Fall Entryway

Hello everyone! What a windy warm day we had today, leaves were just flying off the trees and
it was so nice to have a warm day because soon they will be gone until next year!
I wanted to show you my entryway for fall, I had the front door opened to let more light in
while I took some pictures. As you come inside the closet is on the left of the entryway!

I tried not to over do with the fall d├ęcor in here so a little garland over the mirror and
wreath on the inside of the door and a pumpkin that was a giveaway win is all I put in
entryway fall 2014 002
I had an empty space to the right and figured on using a chair but the door swings open so
it had to be a smaller type chair which I don’t have right at the moment. So I used some wooden
boxes and a carpenters tool chest and I finally found a place for this frame, that is meant to
be hung empty. I’ve had it for awhile and had bought it at Michael’s on sale!

Love how this all looks together, gold, beige and grapevine with a burlap bow!

Found the pictures at a yardsale in a bottom of a box and she only wanted a $1.00 a piece!

Fall Love

Hi Everyone, It’s getting colder here…Saturday night down to 37, it just came to fast for me.
I’m in the house today because it’s really windy out and hard rain coming in as the forecaster
says, so I’ve been taking a few pictures of fall around here for you to see!

Since I’m stuck in the house I wanted to see if my fall plates and glasses were okay for the holidays, plus found and washed the napkins.
My centerpiece is from around the house this year also except for the mini pumpkins I got those at Walmart!
Fall vintgnets 006
Love the glittery pumpkins on the tea cart they seem to shine on the tray!

I’m thinking of painting the hutch a light gray because when the walls in the kitchen
and where my desk is are gray we won’t be painting the livingroom or diningroom…so
I’m thinking that it would be a good idea to do the hutch gray! I do like it white but I
think it’s time for a change.

My son was throwing this rug in his garbage when I stopped him I’ve always loved it and
now it’s in my diningroom!

The hoosier always gets a pumpkin and an old pumpkin pie spice tin!

I hope you enjoyed my fall vignettes, thanks for stopping by so appreciated!

My Fall Porch 2014!

I can’t believe it’s the first day of fall and today it certainly felt like it, a high of only 59 degrees!
I actually had to wear a jacket to go to Walmart today, the sky is blue though and the sun is out!


I did do two different things this year I bought mums for the porch and made a
burlap bow for the wreath. I was going to buy a hanging basket of mums but
decided the fern looked just as good.


This wreath I bought at a yardsale a couple years ago and I just added some pics from
Joann’s to feel it out more, this year I added the burlap bow to it!


I still have to add faux leaves to my window boxes and next bring out a
little bit of Halloween.
Have a great Fall evening everyone!

Random Things Friday

Hello everyone!
It’s beautiful here in Pennsylvania, the sky couldn’t be more blue and the mums are so pretty, I’m going
to enjoy fall just the same as I enjoyed this summer.

I’ve been exercising ( Turbo Jam ) and walking/jogging watching what I eat plus drinking this:

XO 006

I chose to drink the chocolate vegan which is so good, it has also
given me energy which I forgot what it was like to have. 
I’m still on my first bag of Shakeology so I’ll let you know my progress
in a couple weeks.

I stopped by Goodwill a couple weeks ago and found this bamboo mirror for
a couple dollars, I don’t know whether to paint it or not so right now I’m
keeping it the way it is.

XO 004
Here it is in the diningroom, I also found the hanging cornucopia for 1.00 at a yardsale. I forgot to remove the
photo albums on the table, we had company from Vermont last week so they were brought out!
XO 005

I’ve also been to Michael’s and used a 40% coupon on these metal letters, you can hang them
on the wall or have them stand like I did. I chose the X and O because there weren’t many letters
XO 001
I finally found this stashed away in a box, I was so happy to find it… I thought
it had got thrown away by mistake.
XO 009
Now I can’t find the blue pumpkin I painted last year.Sad smile
blue pumpkin 001
XO 012

I’m also loven black and white

Have a wonderful weekend… there is a neat yardsale tomorrow that I’m going
to go to, hope I find something!

Fall is Just Around the Corner

Hello everyone, how are each and everyone of you? Did you enjoy your summer like I did, I can’t believe it’s over an
the kids are back in school.
I’ve been looking thur some fall photos to just review what I’ve done in decorating for fall thur the years and
thought you would like to see too!
This was taken in 2010, love the feathers, now I can’t find them hope they are in my fall stash..
2011 and I hung a yardsale wreath on my newly painted black door that I had added leaves and pumpkins to.~
I think that is the only large pumpkin I bought that year!
Found this painted crock at the flea market.
Should have never sold this lantern last summer, oh, well live and learn!
Last year I painted a pumpkin blue…maybe this year I’ll change it.

Neat arrangement on an antique breadboard with my milkglass cake stand.

The sunflowers certainly brightened up this corner of the kitchen!
The glass candlestick and glass vase were married to make this unique piece,
both from the Dollar Tree, Oh and I almost forgot, I made the GW vase too with rope
bought at Walmart!
blue pumpkin 010
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my past fall decorating, can’t wait to start again for 2014!
Thank you so much for staying around while I took a much needed time away from my computer.
