Looking Forward To Fall

Who's ready for fall?  Raise your hand.  

These days I find myself dreaming of fall a lot...even though summer seems to be hanging on with temps outside soaring well above 100 degrees this past weekend, I've still been doing some dreaming and thumbing through holiday magazines, and thinking about how I want to decorate things for the holiday season this year and what new recipes I might want to try. That's just me, for as long as I can remember I've done this. I've added a few vintage things to my shop  that would be great for the upcoming autumn season...


Handmade vintage fabric pumpkins in soft shades of tan and white, and faded orange, I think these have a unique shabby primitive country flair to them...the floral ticking design on the tan one is especially cute to me and would be perfect for the shabby cottage chic decor...

and a cute vintage handmade orange pumpkin with green stem and leaves. 



 For those that like to plan ahead, be sure to visit my Fall Autumn Harvest Section in my shop to see more home decor and decorations HERE.   
I also wanted to mention that I'll be adding vintage Christmas items to my shop very soon as well, including a nice selection of 1950's Pixie Elves/ornaments, so check back with me again if you like Vintage Christmas.

Antiquing

Recently my husband and I made a trip to Eufaula, AL. to visit a friend of ours and to do some antiquing. 

Eufaula is a small southern town with charming old houses that line the streets as you go into the downtown area, so pretty. There's even some historic mansions to tour, and there's a large lake there, but I didn't get any pictures of it this time. 









Downtown has several quaint antique & thrift stores to plunder around in, you could spend hours looking around in them, so much to see...




The largest one is Shady Oaks Thrift Store,  I took some snapshots of the inside of it to share...





































I think it's safe to say that they had a little bit of everything!  

I hope that you enjoyed coming along for the tour, thanks for visiting!

Mix of Old and New

Mixing old with new keeps things interesting...and I love this Soft Green Treasury at Etsy that I've been featured in! Thanks so much to Donna from Vintassentials for including my Vintage Framed Sage Green Wallpaper with Cottage Flowers in your latest Treasury. The collection of treasures are so pretty done in soft greens. To visit any of the other features click on the photos below. Enjoy Browsing!

'Mixing Old & New' by greenarbor

As summer days get shorter and the bright vibrant greens turn to a more pastel color under the grey clouds brings the beauty of sage green. Not quite winter, not quite summer, a color all of it's own.
