Cottage Style Party & Autumn Mantle



I freshened up my mantle for the first day of fall!



My usual mantle staples are still there: lamp, mirror, mercury glass, door way print.


Plus a few things I rotate around my home like the hurricane candle holder, letter A and the fruits for Etsy photos.



I added several old books with faded green covers with a pumpkin and apples from my Etsy photo stash.



This photo is one I took on the Oregon coast on a rainy day.
That's a color photo, btw!



This day of the dead print was by an artist who worked for me years ago.
It's a limited addition linoleum print signed & numbered by the artist.


This will be up through Halloween for sure!







Hello Friends!

Welcome to this week's

Cottage Style Party

#114




Here it is the first day of fall.
The signs were every where, leaves falling and cooler temps, but I was in denial!

Where did summer go?

I wasn't ready to let go yet!
Here's hoping for a long warm fall so my mind can catch up to the calendar!


Let's party...




Well, Miss Jane, you had me with the words "Wine Party"!
And this wine party is fabulous!


This wine party is being held in a wine cellar with decorations made with wine corks: a utensil box and wreath on the door! Visit Miss Jane at her blog to see all the details to throw your own wine party!





This is the prettiest setting for a little autumn tea party.
I love the scented candles, mismatched tea cups with saucers and that yummy looking cake!


Stop by Sherry's blog The Charm of Home to get the recipe.
I know I'll be making this Chunky Apple Walnut Cake with Caramel Glaze this weekend!
Yum





I love the attention to detail in Revi's industrial gallery wall!
And those old books on the cabinet are so fabulous!


This is just not another pretty display! This is a working display as Revi's mail slot drops her mail into the old drawer on top of the cabinet…look close! For all the details, drop by Revi's blog Revisionary Life.

Cottage Style Party & Community Yard Sale Finds!



The town I live in has a community yard sale every year in September.

It's a real family affair with many generations selling their junk together in one huge yard sale.

Even some of the schools have raffles or sell donuts and coffee at the sale.

Some years its good, this year it was great!



Here's what I found…


I found this hand sewn quilt for a cool $25!
It is in mint condition and looks great on my bed.




Wonderful hobnail vase already in use!




A gold demitasse cup and saucer set only 25 cents!



From the same seller, this tiny violet pitcher with under plate.



And this demitasse set also only 25 cents!


Silverplate soup spoons...


butter knives and...


and ladles, oh my!


Opera glasses with case (not shown).


Milkglass Victorian eye cup.


Fenton ruby red hobnail candle holders.


An old tea canister.


You don't even notice the arm missing on one of these charming salt and pepper shakers!
Look at those faces!


A rusty, crusty typewriter with fab green keys!


I spent the weekend playing with my new, old toys!

You can see what I was doing all weekend above.

Playing.

What have you been up to?







I just love Magali's 'back-to-school' mantle!
And how pretty is that stone on either side of it?
Whoa!


Stop by Magali's blog The Little White House on the Seaside to see her collection of vintage school items on her mantle.
Don't miss the unique the foot-warmer box and read about how it was used!








I love this hand painted plate and lovely rose teapot!
So cute next to the Victorian couple in Debbie's curio cabinet.


This curio is one of 3 that Debbie got for being the best neighbor! Drop by her blog Debbie Dabble to see her curio's and how she decorated them!






Love this blue transferware with blueberries in the bowl!
Diane's post isn't just about her vintage dishes, but she has a yummy Blueberry Buckle Coffee Cake recipe too!

Cottage Style Party & An Antique Show


I sold at an antique show last weekend and decided to turn the camera towards other vendors items.


I love this old Hoosier cabinet painted pink and white!
It still has the flour sifter and that jadite bowl looks right at home.



I love this old chippy painted porch swing.
If I just had a porch to hang it on.



This child's toy cabinet has child size dishes too.


I'm not sure if this is a functional pulley or a pulley made into a table?


But I love this little guy on top!
Is it a meerkat?

This step-back chest of drawers is so beautiful!


This vendor also had lots of great primitive pieces.
Look at that huge basket!


This vendor cornered the market on crocks I think!


More crockery!


This vendor had a very pretty girly type of space (note the parasol!)
I love the blue of those painted pieces behind the framed prints.
I asked what color that was and she mentioned Martha Stewart paint.
Of course I don't remember the color any more!


I found all the quilts!

Croquet in a box anyone?


Never tire of seeing butter churns!


Someday I will own one of these old library cabinets!


How cute is this old wicker baby buggy!


Camping supplies anyone?


I haven't seen one of these old lawn jockeys in years!



I am equal parts intrigued and disturbed by this unique lamp.


Let's just hope that the guy who made this kept it in his man cave and did not force his wife to display it in the house….



Hope you had as much fun as I did!









Hello Friends!

Welcome to this week's

Cottage Style Party

#112






As you can tell I had a busy weekend at the antiques show.
I still have Rubbermaid containers of items in my living room.

Yep, it sure is glamorous being an antiques dealer!


So what did you do this last week?






Tracie did a quick update on her patio with some pretty pink daisies.
I love how breezy they look tucked into an old rustic pail!




Drop in to Tracie's blog  Fishtail Cottage to see the details of her patio vignette! And don't miss her weekly Garden Party.








Remember Jody's deck update from last spring? Here's part 2 of her porch right below it. Same blue & green color scheme but tweaked for fall!


Visit Jody's blog Southern Seazons to see the details of her porch and her deck above it.
Both in the same gorgeous blue & green colors!







If you are not in the fall spirit yet, you will be after you see all of Maria Elena's decorating!
These pumpkins are pure inspiration!



Hop on over to Maria Elena's blog Our Home Away From Home to see her last 3 years of fall decorating.
You will be inspired and amazed!
