A little fall decorating

Good morning!

Just a few images from the fall decorating I did over the weekend!  I have been so busy with the shop and the e-course, that I haven't had as much time to mix it up and change it up around the house as I'd like :)  ...but I did manage to squeeze just a little in over the weekend.

I used what I had, as well as, a new metal basket and fresh bittersweet I picked up from the flea market on Saturday {thank you Diane!}...and I used a lot of the new items from the shop, as they are just too pretty to stick in my storage closet :)

I absolutely love using zinc and galvanized metal here and there in my decorating, so I was beyond thrilled to find so many zinc pieces for the shop on my last trip to France.  The zinc letter stencils are so wonderful...the bunch I bought happened to have a few stencils tucked in with the grouping that didn't quite match the rest...so I kept them for myself :))  I just like displaying them tucked into my vignettes, and any letter will do.  I guess I'm just a letters and numbers fan!

I have added a few French burlap grain sacks to the shop, and I will be adding a few more in the next day or so...

I do not use much orange in my decorating, but I do love the red/orange of fresh bittersweet for a nice fall touch...and having this big basket of it on the dining room table is perfect...

I will be adding more new items from the French brocantes all week!  

Happy Fall!
