Simply Fall in the Dining Room

As I type this post, I am looking out my window to the most glorious autumn foliage.  We are truly blessed here in New England.  Our dining room has undergone a fall transformation too, with simple touches of rustic warmth.
Behold...the 'twig' arrangement!

After windy days, we often find tons of twigs in our large front yard - what better way to recycle them than in a grandiose arrangement?


I love the simplicity of this look.  Nearby rests my favorite white chair, stacked with embroidered linens.  I sometimes chuckle that this chair is 'overexposed' on my blog - it's probably the most photographed chair I own, and is used for all the pillow shots for my Etsy store.  I don't tire of looking at it though, so I just move it around from room to room for a new look...

Another corner of our dining room got a new look with this white bookcase, which I purchased for the Vintage Bazaar last month.  It came in very handy to display our wares, and now I'm using it to display rustic brown pieces, mixed with whites and silver...





I've recently added this small champagne bucket/trophy piece to the bottom shelf - just love the look of the tarnished collection:


The sweater pumpkins I made last year are now resting in this rustic old fruit crate I scored from a sweet vendor at the Vintage Bazaar.  I love it!


It's been a busy fall...getting projects done.  And yes..that means Christmas projects for my shop!  I can't wait to show you what will be available.
Also...I've got a neat Santos doll tutorial coming up soon...stay posted!

I'll be looking forward to your Santos doll tutorial! I've always wanted one but they're so pricey!

I adore the twig arrangement! I really need to do that one of these days since I like the look so much and like you I have alot of twigs on the ground from the trees in my yard.

I, like you, will never tired of pretty photos of your gorgeous chair. It's just to perfect not to use all the time.

Love the natural elements from your yard used in the vase tied with seam ribbon.
So simple but such a statement piece.

You've added some great additions to your room, Susan! I love the organic element that the twigs add. It would be so fun to hang little ornaments from their branches! Love your vintage silver with the perfect amount of patina!
