There is a Nip In the Air......Fall Decorating Time

There is a nip in the air here in the mountains.

 Fall is one of my favorite seasons.

Silk flowers- Michael's, Old Books-collected over years, Fabric-Fabric.com

Time to start pulling darker colored stuff out of all my hidey-holes. When you live in a sweet little cottage storage creativity is vital.

Time to put the whites and lighter things away in bins and storage containers and swap out to the burgundies, golds, browns, reds, blacks....

One trick that I have learned to get almost free art work is to frame old encyclopedia pics.

 That is what I did with the cute fishy pictures below. 

Using a sharp cutter, [don't cut yourself], cut out an old pic....

calenders work well, too....

I spray painted my frames, [Wal-Mart has frames for $3 sometimes- can't beat that price w/ a stick]

There you go.....

 art that is uniquely yours and very cheap...love it!

Bought this sweet little owl at the Valley Treasures Woodstock,Va.http://local.yahoo.com/info-36311248-valley-treasures-woodstock-$2

Our white and cream linens don't get to rest!

They are timeless and beautiful in all seasons....

look for them in flea markets and new stores.... wonderful deals can be found.

Don't hydrangeas just make you feel good....

these guys don't even have to fear my brown thumb!

Below are two suitcases that traveled the world with my maternal grandmother. Didn't know her very well until later in life....she left and didn't come home for many years!

Very thankful my mom is a forgiving person and my grandmother had the courage to put the past behind her....

A new season is a good time to put past things where they belong.....behind us....time to forgive....and be forgiven.

Birds of a feather, flock together.

There is a little nip in the air! Time to start dragging all your Fall stuff out of all your hidey-holes.
