Welcome!

My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit. I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."

Pumpkins and Polka Dots

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......




. . . . . . unless of course some Hallowe'en inspiration hits. . . . .

Cheers,

Bronwyn

  1. Those upside down bowls are so cute! The perfect spot for a little white pumpkin.

    I have a single bowl like this that I pull out for Valentine's day. Polka dots are such a happy pattern :)

    Looking forward to seeing your porch decked out for fall!

  2. I love all the red splashes! Actually, I don't decorate for fall, except for a wreath on my front door! I probably will get some rotten fruit thrown at me for saying this, but I don't like fall colors, except on trees, lol!
