Autumn Has Arrived

and I have been so ready to start decorating. My computer has been a bu--, and hasnt let me download pics lately so this is a little late.

I used alot of raffea in my displays in place of straw. Its cleaner.

The mailbox got a new fall look.
                                                                                A old toolbox full of pumpkin and a sweet chalkboard.

                                             I made a few of these up for the fall out of 2x4 scraps of lumber

                                     I finally have the lights in the entryway going.

                                            Id love to find 2 more of these vintage lights but for now I am using
                                           enamelware pans

Repurposed Funnel

 Well I just love my new light fixture that literly just took minutes to get up. Don't you just love it. It looks so great at my kitchen window.
 I just had it laying out in the potting shed and thought this would make a great light fixture!!
 I have been looking at this recessed light convertion kit at Lowes and I bought one today, about $17. It literly took me just a few minutes to put it up.
 I also picked up 2 of these vintage edison light bulds at Lowes to put in the fixture.They were about $9 a pop but I love the vintage look. Mike just cut a hole in the top of the funnel and it is just the look I was after.
 This is a shelf I bought at a great little flea market on the way to Joplin that I hit this week with my mom. Its a great little peely shelf I picked up for $15. I have not found a spot for it yet but when I do I will post.
And my last picture is of the great soap dispincer I bought at a new shop that has opened in the last 2 wks. here in town. Julies Antique Flower factory. Its a great shop full of repurposed goodies. Julie is so talented. I just love this at my kitchen sink. Well I have been chalk painting my small bathroom cabniets this week I am going to apply the paste wax to it in the morning. I will post when I get that going!!
