Inside my Fall Shed

The little shed H built out in the back yard was originally a potting shed / greenhouse.    Over the years,   it has become much more than just is a place where H & I can relax and enjoy the sun on cool fall days.    There is a big fan in there,   so when we are working in the yard on a hot summer day we can step in there and rest where its cool.

I haven't finished decorating the outside of the shed for fall yet,    so today I'll just share the inside.

Come on in........

I created a harvest theme in the shed this fall

This vignette represents "Wheat Harvest"

 "Fall Fruit Harvest"

The brass coal bucket is filled with cabbages and greens.

Another coal bucket is filled with cotton bolls.     We have lots of cotton fields in our area and the cotton is being harvested now

Let's take a look at the other side of the shed......

I have a third coal bucket filled with pears.    The coal buckets are a recent yard sale find   ($20 for all three)     

Does anyone remember the gold metal wheat sprays that we used to hang on the wall in the fall?

I can't describe how wonderful the shed smells today.     I have a peach candle lit and also an apple one.     I could sit in here all day!

I made a nest for my fall pheasant in an old metal trough.

Thanks for stopping by for a tour of the fall shed......please come back soon!

  5. Hi Penny
    After following your posts for sometime I got enthused this past Spring and took a 10x10 metal shed we used for storage in the back yard and moved my Potting Cottage in.Since it was hubby cut a big picture window in the sunny side in it and that helps me eith ober wintering since we have snow here in Nevada. Still will need a small heater but I have that covered.
    I Have adored it and spent many an hour studying planting instructions and seed catalogs in I got busy and made it mine with sensational Victorian decor. You my dear friend are a great inspiration
    I can"t wait for Christmas!
    Blessings and love...
