Fall Foyer

It's another rainy day here in Eastern New Mexico,    so I'm having to "play inside" again.    I'm not used to this much rain,  but am very grateful to get it!

I played in the entry this morning....added some fall to the desk right inside the front door.    I noticed that the rugs needed a good vacuuming,  but luckily I was able to ignore them!

I had picked up a couple of new pumpkins at Home Goods  (like I need more  and I was excited to be able to use them in the new fall vignette.    The first new pumpkin I wanted to share is made from wheat.  so cute!    The pine cone pumpkin next to it is one bought a few years ago.

The second new pumpkin is made with burlap and lace,   so elegant

I used a section of  wallpaper covered fan blades as a back drop...............

Along with a couple of owls,   I included a bird and nest in my vignette

Now,   I need to add  fall touches to some of the other pieces in the entry!

Please visit my side bar to see "Where I Party"  and stop by and visit a few of these great blogs!


  1. Gosh, I hadn't thought of those wallpapered fan blades in years! Remember when that was so popular on ceiling fans? That and wallpaper fan folded into big fans to use standing up as an accent? It is kind of fun to play inside when it is rainy out. We have just enough rain right now. xo Diana
