Hello everyone, we have been enjoying some wonderful fall weather. I feel guilty at times since so many are suffering through and with remnants of Hurricane Matthew. My thoughts have been with you all.
I so love fall and I have always celebrated the season with decorating since John and I have been married, 27 years.
The foyer is filled with many things I love, dried Hydrangea, pumpkins, my metal ladder from Magnolia Market, my Vintage Olive Bucket, Antique Mustard Jars I found on Etsy from France and other items.
The burlap leaves I had in my fall stash filled combined with mini faux pumpkins I painted fill this box that was part of an old apothecary chest I have spoken about often.
I added this crown to add a bit of whimsy. Isn’t she pretty?
A close-up of the box that I painted with chalk paint and lightly dark waxed. Once again, I used the Mod Podge method with the reverse transfer method. I found these images through Pinterest. The reverse transfer method is a love of mine, takes patience.
Let’s take a closer look at my mustard jars. I have wanted these for around two years now. I received a gift card for Etsy and I knew this was exactly what I was looking for.
One you can see has a little Hydrangea nestled inside and the other has some of my grandmothers vintage silver peaking out, love the handles.
The candle holder is fitted with a small faux white pumpkin.
This pot with a Hydrangea I placed on a book to give the lamp and jar some height and balance.
My Metal ladder from Magnolia Market with a piece of leftover toile I had on hand hanging. I have ironed this many times and that crease you see just won’t budge. I OCD over that, Ha, Ha.
You will notice a walking stick from Ireland gifted to John years ago, this is its permanent home.
The acorn wreath from Décor Steals adds a nice fall touch. Hanging over my market basket that was a gift from the Painted Fox. It sits filled with beautiful dried Hydrangea. The colors are faced and add nice color.
Close-up, lovely soft autumn colors, so pretty!
In this corner by the front door is my Vintage olive bucket filled with more Hydrangea with a White pumpkin. Love this olive bucket with all it’s character.
A close-up to give you a better look at the Hydrangea colors clustered together and a tad bit of sunshine.
This Hitchcock chair was my moms and even though there are a few chips of wear and tear I will NEVER paint this piece. It is not only memories of my mom who loved these chairs but it’s a reminder of my childhood, PRICELESS to me.
The pillow is a Pottery Barn purchase I made a few years back.
These are Boo pumpkins we purchased when at the pumpkin farm last weekend. Look at those curvy stems.
The curvy stems make the pumpkins, I think.
One last look at the Bombay chest.
Hope you enjoyed seeing our foyer in all its Fall glory. Enjoy the rest of your week. Remaining beautiful here throughout the weekend. I hope you have great weather too!
