Fall Ledge

I finally finished my fall decorating by adding several of my recent thrift store purchases that I gave a new look to.  The white pumpkins were orange ones I already had -- just gave them a coat of white. The two little brass containers I kept as is, just filled them with an assortment of moss, pumpkins and wooden acorns.
The white, glass bowl with the leaves imprinted on it worked perfectly to hold some rustic pumpkins I picked up at a flea market.

I had picked up this great, large frame and gave it a coat of Paris Gray chalk paint then a coat of Antique white.  I then distressed and waxed it.  The quote fit perfectly with my fall theme so after adding a little bit of stamped embellishment, this completed the 'nook' in my living room.  My hubby laughed when he saw the quote, "Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking successive autumns" because I for the most part don't like autumn, only because it heralds what is to come, Winter.  But it IS a pretty quote and it DOES work with my vignette, so for this, I'll be a hypocrite.

We're enjoying a delicious Indian Summer here in the Midwest and the eighth consecutive day of "100% sunshine" with temps in the 80's . . . a real treat as we anticipate the winter days just around the corner!  I hope you all are enjoying this season with your family and friends!



  1. I've so been enjoying this past week. You have a very nice vignette. I like what you did with the frame, and the quote. I happen to love autumn. Love the wooden acorns too.

  2. I love your pretty Fall thinks! I am crazy over white pumpkins this Fall! Enjoy your week! It rained here in Florida this weekend but it looks like a nice day today! ♥

  3. I have my own collections of white glass so your post caught my eye quickly, then add the white scrolly frame and I am hooked! So pretty!

  10. I adore milk glass! It's one of my favorites and I don't exactly have a collection, but I find myself picking it up here and there and must have around 10 pieces by now. Yours is just lovely!

  11. Love the cute white pumpkins in your fall vignette and the rustic pumpkins in that pedestal bowl add so much visual texture! I love how you used the white shabby frame and other accents with the fall inspired red net...lucky you with such beautiful weather for fall! It has been so wet and cloudy the entire week. Makes me wish I was in the midwest enjoying the gorgeous weather outside! Thanks for your loving words on my autumn tea. Always a pleasure to have you over,Lauren. Have a good weekend!Hugs~Poppy
