I started with ribbon, and leaves and wreath from the dollar store & hot glue.
And here is the final result.
So this was the start of decorating my foyer.
Now for the table below...
I went for my old ironstone antique wash basin and vase that has a beautiful history behind it.
My mom found this in the attic of her mom's house sometime during the 1960's.
The pitcher has little shafts of wheat all around the top edge.
I stuffed it with natural elements from mother earth.
The house was a very old home in Philadelphia that had been built in the early 1900;s
The pitcher and bowl were covered in dust when mom carried them down the rickety attic steps and when she washed them off, both the washbowl and the pitcher were in pristine condition!
Sorry to say sometime in the early 80's when my mom was watching my boys, who were very little, they got to rough housing in her house and banged into the bowl. So it suffered a huge crack in the interior. It did not go all the way through so there was never any need to apply glue or anything, but it is a visible crack, and I always have to handle with extreme care, when washing, now that it belongs to me.
I just filled it with some pumpkins
I like how they all look together.
I am liking how it all turned out in my hallway, what do you think?
Simple but Autumnal
Vintage but Fresh
Now if I can just keep the family from throwing mail on the table, and dropping their shoes in the hall!
Everyone being grown up now, they don't listen so good!
Anyone in bloggyland got tips on control, when they are in the 20's??
Thanks for stopping by!
