~ A Dab of This ~ A Dab of That~

When I started pulling out the fall decor this year I decided to change a few things, and eliminate a few others. The basket on the wall was done differently last year. This year I chose to leave the fern and add to it.
I love to use pheasant feathers in my home. We live in a farm community and often see wildlife in the front yard, maybe not pheasants but turkeys, deer a few coyotes and naturally the possums and coons.
Faux leaves, some berry stems along with the feathers a few sticks from the yard and I have a basket to make you smile when you head out into the garage. :-))

The icebox was a birthday present from Mr. P over 30 years ago. It's floated around the house and landed here for the past few years. The inside houses the over flow of collected dishware. That's a post for another day. :-))
Using a cast iron urn with some Spanish moss gives the pumpkin a bit more presence.
The leaf shaped dish perfect for this time of year holds some wonderful smelling potpourri. I wish the scent could come through your monitors.

So there you have a bit more fall decorating going on around here, with a "hint" of an upcoming post.

I love your touches of fall. It seems that by the time I give up on summer it is too late to do fall!
Thank you so much for your prayers for Lucas-it means a lot to all of us!

Oh my, what a gorgeous floral arrangement... definitely a show stopper! I love how you combined greenery with fall colors and pheasant feathers...and the cast iron urn with the adorably cute pumpkin makes your vignette so beautiful. Loving all your fall accents. Thanks for sharing with us. Dropping in from the WUW party and I'm so glad I did. Have a wonderful evening!~Poppy

This area of your home is just so pretty! Love the icebox, of course, and all the accessories accent it so well. Like Ceekay, I like that child's chair, and like Deb- I think the rooster pillow is so sweet! Wish I had some pheasant feathers to play with! The basket looks very full and pretty, Lynne.

I love the wall basket filled with that gorgeous lush arrangement. I have a very similar lantern except mine has a solid metal back and two holes to hang on the wall. I really wish it was like yours because I don't have it on the wall.

Lynne, Thank you so much for your visit to my blog and your kind words. I love your basket of fall goodies, it looks perfect.
I also wanted to tell you that I loved your posts about MC's house and shops. I used to live in the KC area, and miss my visits to Nell Hills. Especially this time of the year. Thanks for sharing.

Lynne,
Love the idea of the spanish moss! It just adds something to the vignette. I may have to borrow this idea here and there if you do not mind?

Hugs,
Debbie
