Since it was the first week of fall, I put out a few autumnal
looking things. I don't decorate my whole house with every
season. Mainly, I do my little antique table in the foyer.
And since I was really ready for a change there, I
took down the painting on the wall and changed out the
lamp while I was at it. Change is good!
It makes me notice things instead of walking by without observing!
The painted bowl and box came from the thrift store.
I made the little cloche with an old glass and dresser knob.
The old books came from generations in my family,
the transferware plate was in the auction trash
and the nest and eggs came right from nature!
The vintage brown bottle lamp was in the auction trash, too.
Someone had wired it and it even had the lightbulb in it. :)
And I just happened to have a shade that fit.
I swept the cobwebs off the front porch, although I almost left
them, claiming they were Halloween decorations. lol....
And I swapped out the wreath on the door.
The best part? I didn't spend a penny.
Use what you have...that's my favorite way to do things.
I even had a fall-colored cat nearby, serving as inspiration!
He was free, too! lol...
Marmalade kept me company as I worked on the front porch.
