~~ All Dressed Up For Fall ~~

Today's temperatures have been so fall like I couldn't resist dressing my hutch for fall. Ok.. maybe I rush the seasons just a tad bit, when a girl feels an urge to change things out she's gotta go with the urge right? lol
Last year I fell over the top in love with dough bowls. I purchased 3 of them in different shapes and sizes and have had a ball using them in many different ways over the past year. Grant it they aren't antique dough bowls, none the less they are pretty awesome pieces to use in any decor.
I filled it with some realistic gourds, pumpkins, acorns, a few nuts and yes, some pretty realistic looking candy corn. The faux corn sure saves inches on the 'ole hips. lol :-))
Naturally, I had to add some great bittersweet.







You have to keep an eye on everything around here. I see the squirrel has already grabbed himself a nut. :-))
The green plates were changed out for the black and white, I also added the toile tea set. The small book to the right on an easel, (that I didn't notice until just now is crooked) is a small photo album. I can't recall where I got it, I've had it for many many years.

One last shoe of the black hutch dressed for fall.
As always, thank you for swinging in to say hello. Until next time....
hugs ~lynne~

Looks fabulous! I have always loved that brown toile pattern, and I am envious that it feels cool enough to think fall....we won't be there for another six or eight weeks, at least!

Lynne, it is just unreal gorgeous. I love your dough bowl and the nuts and gords do look so real. Beautiful transferware and I do spy some pretty green fruit on the right and a cloche. Of course you knew I would find that. Everything is beautiful and I love the way you've draped the scarf. Stunning display. Hugs, Marty

I love your hutch and it looks so pretty dressed up for fall. Your dough bowl is so beautiful. I would love to find a hutch like that and re-do it for my dining room. I need some more display space. Love & blessings from NC!

I think I just figured it out, Lynne!!! I don't use Blogger and evidentially I have to sign in before I can leave a comment. We'll see!! Once again, I love your fall decor---that hutch is wonderful. Everything looks perfectly placed!! At least today our temps are leaning a little more in the direction of Autumn!! Hope you've had the chance to get out and enjoy the weather.....I haven't, cept to go to the store which isn't enjoyable!!

Lynne, I cracked up when I saw your little photo album. Rose from A Hint of Home has the same one. She thinks it came from Sears MANY years ago. I have never seen another one...this blogging is so much fun!!

Jeanette said...

Your designs are beautiful and I too am hooked on dough bowls. I wish we would get a slight hint that labor day is a little over a week away. I am jealous!

Everything looks so pretty! I feel like I just put the Fall decor away here. Around 90 today, but the humidity was down so more bearable. I also noticed the air was more clear today that is a good sign. :)

Hi Lynne,
Your hutch looks so wonderful! It's so warm and inviting...you always put together the most beautiful vignettes on your tables and hutch, Lynne. That takes a lot of work and talent...and it comes so naturally for you! That is one cute little sneaky squirrel. LOL
I bet it's getting fun at your shoppe...we're coming into prime shopping time soon! We will need a virtual shopping trip, for sure! :)

PAT said...

Absolutely gorgeous Lynne. I think I am going to get my big ol' dough bowl out and rummage in the basement for some fall things, for the farmhouse table.

We are lovin' these fabulous temperatures...hope the 90's/100's don't come back the rest of the Summer!

Pinky said...

Lynne, your hutch looks so beautifully FALLISH!!!! Love it! I am chomping at the bit and am hoping I can do my Fall decorating next week! Want to get it all done before family arrives from out of town for our daughters wedding in 2 weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XO, Pinky

Your hutch looks straight out of a magazine! Love the bread bowl of fallish things. I wish you would come and decorate my home for fall. Love those pears. Just bought one for myself that's very similar. Hope Mr. P is doing well.
