More Fall Decorating

Looking for plate hangers, decorative ones, I went to Home Goods and guess what, they were selling the turkey plates separately today! I bought one!



I placed it over the bay window with some other plates. I had to take one of the plates that stays up there all the time, down. When I find a plate hanger, of any kind, I might hang the turkey plate somewhere else in my kitchen. But for now, I will keep it here, but I think it looks lost.


Here is my sideboard in the dinning room. It is a little out of balance. I took the buffet lamps off. I have had them nearly 16 years. Decided to move them to the guest room. I could not find another set of buffet lamps that I like, then I thought, "why do I have to have a set? Why can't I use what I already have?" I have to adjust looking at it though. I think I will make some changes when I do the dinning table. Then everything will be in balance. :-D


I have not idea how old this turkey is. I remember picking him up on a clearance rack some time before DD was born. He has some parts missing. I had to re glue his nose back on. But I like him and he is cute. The tray you will find in one of my older posts. I found it at a thrift store 2.48 cents. Metal based silver plate. Stamped, but has a couple of rust spots. I may spray paint it sometime in the future.


But for now, looks great hosting the turkey and the gourds from Ross and the $$$ store. :D


One of the cloches made this weekend filled to the brim with gourds from Ross'.

A crystal biscuit jar filled with $$$ gourds. I like it and the way the color stands out.

A lamp that was my DH's mother's. It is beautiful. Missing about 5 prisms. I know where to find some. I do need to check prices though. I tucked some books underneath to give it height. Worried about then read Penny's article about decorating with books. :-) Realized I did a 'good thing'! I do need to find one more book to give it a tad more height.

This little cermic pumpkin came from the $$$ store. Pretty!

I think all your fall decorations look great! And your buffett looks balanced to me! I like to decorate assymetrically though. I love that crystal lamp!

Love fall decorations, Missy. I really like the little girl painting you have above your sideboard.

Thanks for the kind words on my grousey quilt block. I had loads of fun working on it... :)

Have a blessed weekend.

Wow Missy!!! A fellow smocker!!! I love smocking and heirloom sewing. You and your mother did a fabulous job on the dress. And the photograph on stretched canvas turned out just so beautifully. A question - can one use any digital photo file to have it printed on stretched canvas? I am thinking to do something like that for some picture files I have...
