With this year's autumn decorating I decided to try something other than the typical orange/red/yellow leaves and super-sized orange pumpkins.
On my fall mantel I used subdued creams and brown.
My outdoor decor ( that you will see in a few days) is done in grey, yellow and navy blue.
And my kitchen decor?? What did I use there??
You'll not see any orange here - only the cutest little white pumpkins and my collection of red and white polka-dotted dishes!
I threw in some other favourite red things too, including this mini-frames with little pictures of my munchkins.
I bought these fake white pumpkins-on-a-stick on my first visit to Hobby Lobby this past weekend. Man- why did it take me so long to visit that place? And the deals they were having! OMG. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!!
Polka-dotted friends sign?? Michaels - 1 dollar.
This cookie jar is my latest spotty acquisition. It looks really comfy along side my dotty mini-milk pitcher.
More little pumpkins - balanced upon my shiny red candlesticks.
I love this jug. My mother gave it to me for Christmas a few years ago. I dolled it up with some fake red sunflowers from the craft store.
Here is a view of the middle 2 shelves.
Oooohhh - those dots and pumpkins make me smile!
And here's the whole she-bang. I tend to re-accessorize these shelves (built by my hubby's grandfather many moons ago) about 2 months. I think they'll stay this way until the big changes for Christmas......
