October decorating, installment 2
I actually completed the redecorating (or tweaking, if you will) of my hutch for October on the 14th. But I've scheduled so many posts ahead that only now, ten days later, could I find time to post it. I will share a few photos and just comment a little on each one. The top photo, of course, shows nearly the entire hutch, all but the very top shelf. On that one, you will find my tall autumn mugs:
The next two shelves are shown below. On the upper one, a pretty pumpkin candle holder, a little "fall" sign, a subway art fall printable, a little sunflower spool, Tasha Tudor's Pumpkin Moonshine book (from my childhood) and some pretty pumpkin salt and pepper shakers.
The next shelf down has a fun farmer's market plate from Gooseberry Patch (how I love their vibrant and colorful artwork!), some Fiesta ware salt & pepper shakers, a Marjolein Bastin cinnamon tea packet. my "thankful" sign from the Wilds of New England, some faux bittersweet and sweet ceramic birds, my maple leaf pitcher and just at the edge of the photo a little "Colonial Homestead" salt shaker.
And finally, on the bottom shelf, a chippy green enamel dish filled with faux gourds, my "Autumn in the Air" booklet from Cracker Barrel, my leaf teapot from Walmart (atop a dollar store doily and a fall mat sewed by me), a spray of silk leaves and my leaf sugar bowl, as well as a family heirloom mug and a faux carnival glass hen I've had for years.
And there it all is in a nutshell! I love its warm and cheery look.
Hope you've enjoyed this look at my October hutch!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
