~ Decorating Progress Pics! ~

In the past week, great progress has been made in changing my home decor from summer to fall and I thought I'd show you some of the pictures that I've taken thus far!

First I wanted to show you where the tobacco basket, that Pam made, ended up after I moved it from above my pie safe...I think it looks really nice here in my bowl rack...I always thought that the back of the basket was even prettier than the front anyway!...that sign up top was made by Kath...the Lover's Knot Towel and the Iron Hook CandleHolder are wares that are available in my shoppe:Speaking of the pie safe...remember in my last post I showed you a picture from Pottery Barn?...well this is my version...I seem to be having a "thing" for white pumpkins this year so I bought a couple of their wood pumpkins and a mercury glass tealight holder, had a couple of their pumpkins from last year, added some raffia, some resin cornstalks I've had for years, and the hooked pumpkin mat I got last year, it was made by Stephanie! nearly matches my new rug on the wall so I couldn't help but add it by leaning it against the jug lamp:My coffee table display is the same as last year cuz I really enjoyed it...the Large Rustic Chopping Bowl is an item that I offer in my shoppe as well as the Pumpkin Spice Wax Bars...the pinkeep pillows were made by Tina, Barbara, and Melissa:
My dining room table looks similar to last year too but this year I'm using a "new" olde wooden bowl that I purchased a few months ago...the Mock Mice Teeth II Table Runner and the Bittersweet Garland are available in my shoppe:
Here is a ladderback chair full of fall dolls...3 were made by my dear friend Karen as well as the wee Harvest pumpkin sitting on the lap of a doll made by Lori...the large doll is from Arnetts, the doll on the right was made by Betty, and there's a little pumpkin pillow made by Barbara of Turkey Hollow and the little pumpkin in the foreground was made by Barb Stein:
On the fireplace mantle is my favorite stack of boxes and my favorite pumpkin lady along with a couple of wonderful pumpkins made by Barbara of Turkey Hollow and the wood turned items were made by Don and Pat of Olde Bittersweet Farm:
Just below the mantle, this display is on the right side of the hearth, which is where the boot bench is now sitting after the new little doughbox table took its place, LOL...the sunflower hooked mat was made by Lori:
Then just to the right of that, in the rocking chair there are 2 pillows made by Barbara of Turkey Hollow and there to the right you'll see my new little doughbox table that I wrote about in my previous post:
Here's a close-up of what I have displayed on it...I think it's pretty...the Bittersweet Baby Flowers are available in my shoppe:
On the breakfast nook table I've got some faux white pumpkins and a leaf garland in an olde basket sitting on my favorite olde checkerboard...the Seven Snowballs Table Square is available in my shoppe, it reverses to the opposite color and I'm going to flip it over for Christmas!
Did I tell you that I am having a "thing" this year for white pumpkins?...I think I already did, LOL:
This is what's on my foyer table, I think it's perdy...the sweet white basket was made by Pam, the candle, the fixins, the mums, and the wee pumpkins are all available wares in my shoppe:
The lovely brown leaf, I've had for a couple of years, it was handmade by one of the Schneeman ladies:
I change that sign above the blanket crane according to the season too:
On my black stepback is another pumpkin lady that I love, the Autumn Splendor Block Quilt is available in my shoppe as well as the beautiful Hearth-n-Home Potpourri you see around the candle...the Mums are also available as is that Framed Felt Pumpkin you see up on the shelf in the left corner:
Well that's what I've got so far and I'm not done so stay tuned!...I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's decorating pics so get busy y'all! LOL...have a great week!

I am in love with your decorations Janet! Did you cut the bittersweet garland that is in your bowl? I bought some last year from you but never cut it, I'm wanting more for smaller places. I love seeing all your wares in displays, thanks for the inspiration!!

Janet - underthewillow said...

Hi Robyn!...I did not cut the garland, just bent it and sorta wound it around how I wanted it to look...thank you for the kind words!

Hey Janet ~~
Love each & every picture ... great fall items. The dolls on the chair would make a wonderful card, so sweet.
The white pumpkins are a real favorite of mine also. Hope you guys had no problem with the earthquake today, I know it was felt
all the way up here in my area.
