FALL Vignettes! ~~~ Around my Home~~~

A Hearty Cooool Fall Welcome
from Chilly Michigan!

Yep, those temps took a nose dive last
night...YIKES into the 30's.
I am so not ready for cooler weather...
SUMMER kinda abrubtly ended...
not giving me any warning and it was spose to!

Anywhat I took oodles of vignette pictures
from all the Fall decorated I did last week.
Thought I'd share them with ya!

Let's get you enter my
home these are what greet you!

Moving into the Family room...
I'll just go around the room,
left to right and show more close up
of my table areas.
I redid this used to have all
mirrors on it, but I needed a visual change.

This piece is a vintage Phonograph/Radio
that had belonged to my hubby's grandparents.
His brother owns their home and was going
to throw these out...but I stopped him and
snagged this and a vintage Pump Singer
Sewing machine. It IS a treasured item and
I love using it to decorate.

Next areas are two tables that flank our Leather sofa.

This corner is where my Curio with
all the Blue/White/Transferware used to be.
Tomorrow come back and see where it
ended up.
Another vignette of our table that is beside a Leather Chair.
The center piece that I placed on our coffee table
made me SOOO happy.  This is an old tool
box I picked up probably 10 years ago for 25c!!!
It has been in my storage area with the intent
of painting and selling it.  But...I think
it may have a permanent residence here.
I took took silk sunflowers and other picks and filled it and
just LOVE how it works now.

Onwards into the Kitchen area...
my eating area table center piece.
The hardest space in my entire home to picture
is by our larger window/sink area.  Too much
light I think.  Anyway, I was able to get
close up pictures...just not the entire area.
I have a deep area that I love to
display my goodies in.

I spent very little this year on decor.
Used most of what I already had.
I like to keep loose leaves, picks, florals
beaded fruits etc. and then
design away.  Every year things
look a bit different cause that's just
who I am...but I am always at
peace when its all done and I can
sit back an soak in my homes decor.

I think I am all done sharing for this Fall...
but wait, isn't Christmas around
the corner...I'm sure I'll be
back then sharing more of my home
with you then...stay tuned, lol.

Hope you are inspired to go out
and create vignettes and pretties throughout
your home.

Be Blessed!

Hi Lorena,
I am always inspired when I visit you and your lovely home. Every area so beauitfully decorated and shows your heart and talent coming through.
I went back and caught up on your latest posts and love it all. Such beautiful vignettes all around. I did the same thing this year, used what I had and each year it looks a little different. But that makes it fun I think.

Hope you and yours are doing well. We send our best to your hubby too. Best wishes to your dear daughter and her studies. Hope all is going well for her.

Thank you for stopping by my friend. I am always so thrilled to see you.
Love to you and blessings always.

My husband told me I could appreciate this website. It was thoroughly precise. This publish really saved me a whole lot of time. You can not think of just how a good deal time I had spent for this info ! Thank you!

Before I go, allow me thank you for your patience with my English as (I am certain you have figured this by now,), English is not my mother language as a result I am using Google Translate to form out what to write what I really want to articulate.
