I'm about done now....

You're back....welcome....

Well today I am going to share some miscellanous shots that were made through out the downstairs. 

I know you have seen my secretary before but here is how it looks now.  I have been collecting some old vintage photos and I have them in a photo holder on the desk.  The chair and the bear at the desk are from yard sales.  Both were gotten for 1.00.  Love the chair.   I also picked up the basket that the arrangement is in at a yard sale, I got several and I place them on my front porch with my mums in them. 
Ok...this is on my landing.   I got the chair at a antique store for 10.00 and the crock and the stool were picked up at yard sales.  Don't you just love my gourd?  Last week Michael's had them on sale and so I got one, now I wish I had gotten a few more.  Maybe I stop in there over the weekend and see if they have any left.  Now, do you see my apple gourd?  Several weekends ago, hubby and I along with some friends went to the National Apple Harvest Festival held in Pa. and they had these gourds. I had/have never seen them before.  It looks like a perfect green apple.  However it is a gourd.  Can't wait to dry this one!
This is the view from my front door.  If you look closely you will notice the little white pumpkins in my secretary.    Also, on my dry sink in the dining room I have a small collection of pumpkins under glass.  You can take a closer look below....
Well this isn't a much better shot...too much glare.  Will have to try to get a better one.
This is a small little display I have on my front porch.  I am still not finished with decorating outside.  But I do like how this little simple crate and some bittersweet made this little area came to life. 
I hope you all have enjoyed taking a look into my home this week.  It was alot of fun.  Maybe I will get upstairs and get some pictures.  Hubby and I have been busy doing renovations in this house for the last several years and so it would be nice to show you some of the finished work.  Along with some of the goodies we have collected.
Hope you all have a blessed weeekend.
