Starting to decorate for Fall

I'm finally starting to decorate for Fall around here.... I've been so busy with other things and I keep thinking I have plenty of time but time is flying and it's already Oct so I have to get on the ball and get things decorated before it's time to decorate for Christmas....
 I thought I would start with the mantle shelf above the sofa and then work on decorating my china hutch later today... I'll share pics as soon as I get it done... I got the little leaf vase at the thrift store last month for 68 cents and I put some twigs from outside in it and I love it!!

I made myself the little cream sweater pumpkin and the leaf garland is from Target dollar spot. I love those Target dollar bins for seasonal decorations.
Found these cute vintage squirrel salt and pepper shakers at an estate sale this summer and the owl ones are from Walmart. I wanted to keep it simple.... I might add some vintage doilies though.... I think it needs a little something.... Now off to get started on decorating my china hutch... I painted it white last Fall and I love it! Very Farmhouse style....

Have a great day,

My Craig's List China Hutch

I'm so thrilled!!!
I've been wanting a vintage china hutch for the longest time... I'm always checking Craig's List but all I ever see are the china cabinets with glass doors and I wanted one that's open like this one... I was so happy when I finally spotted this one about 2 weeks ago!!!

I'm planning on painting it white with some homemade chalk paint but I haven't had the chance to get to the store and look at paint!

Even though I'm going to paint it I couldn't wait to start putting some of my stuff in it to see how it looks.... I love it but I still think everything looks better white.....


 Here are a few pics of some of my junk... Most from thrift stores and a few things from antique malls...


 The reason I have one of my vintage scales on top is I was just trying out a few different things to see what looks best up there and forgot to take it down before the pic...
 I have an old window frame I might put up there but not sure yet... I'm not good at creating adorable vignettes like you see out there in blogland...  But I know I want to definitely put a few things on top because my ceilings are high and it looks to empty, I also need to fix the hole from the mirror I had hanging on that wall... 

 I found this beautiful vintage tray at the thrift store the other day, It looks like a tray from maybe a soup tureen... I wish they would have had both pieces that would have had me jumping for joy!! Even though it was just the one piece I took it because I thought it was so pretty....
I'll share pics when I get the china hutch painted white with the chalk paint! Hope you enjoyed seeing my Craig's List buy!!
