It's Show & Tell Time...
Hello my friends...I hope that you've been having a fabulous week!
I've been a little "under the weather"...literally! With all this cold weather that we've been experiencing in Colorado, my old bones have been hurting...nothing serious but it sure does effect how much I get done! Sooo...for Show & Tell Friday I thought I would rerun one of my recent Autumn decorating posts...."An Autumn Living Room". For those of you who have already seen it...I do apologize and hope that you'll be patient with me...but there may be a few who haven't seen it yet!
Please go by and see Cindy over at My Romantic Home...she is our gracious hostess for this fun filled Friday event! I love "Show & Tell Friday"!!! Thank you, Cindy! You will find a list of all the other Show & Tell participants over at Cindy's place!
Thank you so much for stopping by today....Love ya'll!
~~An Autumn Living Room~~ *
A living room in shades of olive green and deep red, with accent colors of gold...ready to welcome in the autumn season! A few autumn colored sofa pillows...a gold velvet throw to cozy up in...and a few new autumn vignettes!!!
Metamorphosis: "So Long, Summer...Hello Autumn"!!!
A New Autumn Vignette! *
Okay, I must admit...this is not a new floral arrangement. This arrangement previously sat on my dining room buffet...but my dining room buffet received a new autumn makeover as well. Since I put away the summer whites (hydrangeas)...I wanted another floral arrangement with more of an autumny feel! Easy fix!!!
I found the pretty fleur de lis urn at Hobby Lobby...I think I only paid $4 for it. The finish of the urn is gorgeous...done up in shades of antique silver and gold, bronze, and an olive green! I used a vining ivy and mossy green flowers...added a long bunch of purple grapes and...Voila!!! I just love the colors of the ivy...mossy greens and some of the leaves are turning golden yellow...so perfect for autumn!!!
A french girl bust sits to the right of the autumn florals! She looks so beautiful with the light shining down upon her!
The french bust sits atop an old vintage book with the prettiest black embossed cover! I just love old books!!! I placed an ornate french finial just to the left of the bust! **
My little cloche even got an autumn makeover! Hehe! I replaced summer's gold buttons with miniature acorns and changed out the white ribbon for gold satin! Love the ornate, copper colored key!
I sure wished that I had this little cloche "autumn ready" for Marty's cloche party...ooops! If you would like to see this little cloche in its summer finery...you can click HERE.
My "artsy" photos... *
These little miniature acorns are very special to me! Several years ago, my three grandsons collected them and gave them to me! Isn't that just the sweetest?
A Golden Pumpkin....Autumn Vignette *
This autumn vignette sits atop one of my sofa end tables. I found this pretty decorative metal pumpkin last week at Hobby Lobby for just $6 (50% off sale)! It's about 12 in. in diameter so it's nice sized...and I love the yellow ochre and olive green finish!!! Oooh...just look at the pretty ornate detailing...such a pretty pumpkin! Hehe!
A "bird's eye" view! (hehe...pun intended!)
More photos using photo effects!
