As I've said before, I'm not much of a seasonal decorator, with the exception being Christmas, and as much as I had tried to get in the spirit of Autumnal decorating this year, it just really isn't going to happen.
I did create a pinterest board for it though, which was fun, but honestly, we celebrate Thanksgiving at my mom's house, so there's really no reason to pull out all the stops.
Plus, how much fun is it to decorate with paint cans everywhere?
I suppose I could put some pumpkins on them and call it a vignette ;)
That said, I did buy some cute mini pumpkins and scattered them a few places.
Oops! I forgot to turn on the light ;)
And I know how much some of you like seeing pictures of the same thing over and over again, so I'm indulging you.
Can you hear the dripping sarcasm? :p
Do you spy the little white pumpkin, on the bottom left?
Here's a closer look:
I bought it from my dear friend, Celestina, who I've known for a very long time. She creates beautiful things for her Etsy shop and sometimes shows them off on her blog Southern Daydreams.
Even her packaging is beautiful:
I like to support my friends, when I can, if you haven't noticed ;)
By the way, some of you have asked whether or not certain pieces of furniture are antiques.
Yes, almost all of them are, with the exception of the grandfather clock and chairs in my dining room, the daybed in the family room, and the coat rack below.
But, aside from the daybed, all of them are pretty much vintage, considering that they're all over 30 or 40 years old.
Also, some of you were curious about the antique book in my office that I showed last week.
It's a Family Bible from 1767
Not my family's Bible sadly, but the Hirschbek Family.
I bought it on Ebay for a song, so if anyone knows anyone with that last name I'd be happy to return it to their family.
It's gorgeous inside, but very fragile.
So that's it for today.
I haven't had time to answer all your questions or sweet comments from non-bloggers, or visit everyone's blogs, in my last few posts, but I plan to catch up soon.
I hope you understand :)
