FALL Vingettes ~ Before/After

Hi there Bloggy Friends!
 
Well, today has been quite a lazy day for me.
I love it when I can laze and work at my own pace
and not have to worry about others.  I hope
that does not sound selfish...lol.
 
Anyway, last Friday I finally decided to pull out
some of my Fall Decor.  I was not going to do any but
when I asked my hubby, well, he really likes it
as long as I don't overdo it...moi overdo anything...hmmm.
 
I usually have loads of loose leaves, greens, beaded fruits
and pumpkins that I use throughout.
  And, I honestly did not put everything out this year.
What I really tried to do was place some vingettes around that
mixed well with my other decor.  My family room and
kitchen areas which always look best in fall colors.
 
Wanna see some pictures?  Let's start in the Kitchen then.
 
A few weeks back I found this rooster and Home Goods.
I loved the carmel colors and wanted to create something
around him as he sat on our island.
  Then this week when I was my favorite
shop...Hobby Lobby, I found the last roll of the 6" mesh
that you see all curled around this rooster.  It is deep brown
but has pretty copper running through it.
A perfect compliment to my arrangment, that I can
disassemble when I am ready to decorate for Christmas
(gosh did I just say the *C* word)!

I am giving you a few pictures of how it looks at
different time during the day.

PS...we are finally looking for Granite counter top!
I am so excited as just before my hubs got let go of his job 4 years
ago, we were going to change them out...well then, life happened and
we had to put it off. 
I am also trying to convince him that
we NEED to paint our cabinets.  What would you do?
I would really LOVE to paint them a creamy off white
with a glaze finished...hubbys not so sure.
Would LOVE to hear from your what you might do.



 
Now into the Family Room...or our true Living area.
 
Our fireplace has always been a feature in our home that I love.  It
does get dress quite often with Seasonal decor and it never
ceases to amaze me how much I love each transformation.

Don't you LOVE the glow that light can give a picture?
These next pictues are of around our Family room.




 
The last few vingettes are in my Dining Room and
Welcoming Entry.
 

I usually set my table and change out the chair covers...
just haven't gotten to it yet!

 
Also I mentioned a before and after...
 
Sitting on our coffee table is this large
utility/tool box that I snagged many years ago
at a garage sale for .25c. 
 
Green is NOT my color...so I knew that some day I would
probably paint it.  I finally decided to paint it the heirloom
white that I love and use throughout much of my
painted decor.
 
Someones attempt to sponge painting, but the colors
together in my opinion were awful!



 
Love how well this goes with my red/cream toile and
a sweet arrangment of fruits and corn for fall!
 
Well, thanks so much for stopping by!
 
Happy Fall Y'all!

I like it. The three different angles in the kitchen. Beautiful!
You did well.


I love Fall.

This year we had one tree with red leaves partly by the roadside. Hubby took it.

Have alook on my blog.

Hi Lorena!

Your fall decor looks so warm and inviting... I love the colors of this time of year. I've been busy starting an Etsy shop, EdieMariesAttic, and having lots of fun and challenges of the brain! Have lots more to list too. So not much time for blogging. Come visit me at Dolls by Marie Antionette. Marie and I are teaming up on her blog for a while. Would love to hear from you!

Big hugs, Sherry
