Autumn Open House

Thank you to Deena at Can I Be Pretty In Pink for hosting the Autumn Open House ! You can click on the link to a list of all the other open house blogs !

Welcome to humble home !! Fall left and we had early winter , so any snap shots outside just went out the door !! I have taken some shots of a few little fall decor areas in my home for you to view !

Starting with the top of an old vintage cupboard in my living room , ( the photo is of the top too , so it looks a little crummy...that's because it was an old cupboard I striped and refinished , some was not very good condition , but has more sentimental value than anything) .I have a display of some of my white pottery ( I love white pottery) with some fall shades of glassware and a glass dome covering some treasures of fall ! I know , the poor little pheasant has a broken beak but it is a treasure that was my aunts, so I keep it for that !





A fall arrangement of florals!




Sitting on a shelf in my kitchen is an orange Fiesta Ware gravy bowl filled with a candy treat ! I like to take candy corn and mix with dry roasted peanuts ! Sounds crazy , but it really does taste good together !


A vintage glass dome that I filled with some "beaded" fruit , sits next to a lamp, sorry for the dark photo !!
A basket that sits on a ledge by my stairs , filled with some boyds bears that a friend gave me a years ago and some other little things , a pumpkin, scarecrow and a crow on sticks that I made a long time ago !!
I usually set this sugar creamer set out in the fall because it has the wheat pattern ( Harvest ), my dad was a farmer & this was from a set of dishes my mother had , I kept these !!
Last I have a tin container that hangs on a closet door , I fill it with greens for the season ! Hope you all have a blessed fall and Thanksgiving ! Every season has a purpose and I always think of fall and harvest ( as a farmers daughter ) and how much we are to be thankful for and how blessed we all are !!! I thank God every day for all that He has done for me and in me & pray that you will be blessed !

Hi Eunice, I was tickled to have you stop by theVintageNest. It's so nice to meet you. I love white ware too and all your touches of Fall around is so warm and inviting (I saw your snow photos in the other post...brrr.) And I especially love the peanuts and candy corn in the orange fiesta. Screams fall. :)

ummm I love candy corn by itself but your right, mixed with peanuts its even GOODER! I"m the only member of my family that eats it--they all think i'm nuts. I see your picture of snow--I avoided it! I cant deal with the thought of snow yet....

OOOOOH I love your fiesta gravy boat! I don't care that much for candy corn to eat but I like to decorate with it at Halloween/Fall. I have a cloche (?) like that and I never really seem to know what to do with it. Yours are really neat. Glad you came over to my house.

Thanks for your comments on my blog! I love your arrangement underneath the glass dome. Those are always so pretty!

And you are now the second person to say that candy corns and peanuts are tasty together! I will try that soon.

Be blessed in the Little Things!
