Moody Early Fall Decor

Hi, Friends,
How are you?
I hope you are well. 
I've been watching all of the royal happenings in the U.K. It seems surreal that the queen is gone. 
In between events, I've been slowly adding a few early fall bits to our home. 
It's too early for too many pumpkins but I do have a few darling squirrels scampering about. 

I love squirrels. 

Our Dixie Girl loved them too. We really miss her. 

I'm not sure why but squirrel collectables can be hard to find. However, this year I've found three. 

I found a darling nut cracker and a little brass squirrel at my local antique mall. 

The squirrel planter in the first photo came from the same mall but was found several months ago. 
I passed on it the first time I saw it because it does have a slight crack but it had to come home with me when I saw it again. It was $6.00. 

Starsky, The Hutch got a refresh. 

Pale ivory roses with pink centers were placed in a majolica pitcher. I seem incapable of saying "No" to a sweet pitcher. They make precious containers for flowers. The Cotswold cottage print came from a recent sojourn to the antique mall in our new East Texas town. It seems fitting to honor Great Britain a bit in our hutch display. 

I have jumped on the amber bottle train. I'm not sure why because they are only old medicine and beer bottles. The bottles we found in our woods went to recycling but these I bought. 

The browns, pinks and moody, crusty books do denote a subtle touch of fall which I love. 
The majolica plate was thrifted for $2.92.The white ceramic apple was also thrifted. 

I plan to let the roses dry in place. 

The hutch has a Dark Academia feel to it. 

This little concrete squirrel is one of my favorites. He was a First Monday Trade Days find ages and ages ago. 

I've had a some success drying grocery store hydrangeas. They have to be the dark blue and purple variety. The lighter blue ones seem to wilt before they dry. Any attempt to dry my home grown hydrangeas have failed. 

The Wollman Designs pumpkin is on display. It is just stunning. If you have been around, you will know how much I adore old needlepoint. Another one is headed here soon. 

That is it for now. I hope you've enjoyed having a look at some of our early fall displays.
As always, Thank you so much for stopping by.

  1. Your fall hutch is just wonderful. I haven’t followed much of the Queens funeral. But the little Cotswold cottage is pretty. I love brown bottles. I have some I collected from the woods in Arkansas on my in-laws property years ago. They are a nice touch. I love that you call your hutch “Starsky”... I named our old pickup truck “Truck Norris”. Have a great weekend. I follow you on I G as Patriciagram65
