Fall in a Dough Bowl

I've been so busy sharing Halloween décor, I haven't posted any of the Fall décor around the house. Next week, I'll be posting Thanksgiving décor, so I thought I'd better get some of the Fall décor posted.

Welcome Fall Vignette

I've had some technical difficulties getting this post to publish, so I won't have much to say, because I'm trying to hurry. Was that a sigh of relief I heard?

Dough Bowl Vignette for Fall

This vignette is on the table next to the fireplace.

Fall Vignette-Pumpkin Farmer

On the other side of the fireplace, I've created a Fall farming vignette.

Fall Plate-Hay Farm

This hay farming plate is Romance by Limoges, France. I've had it for years, and I think I bought it at an antique store that was going out of business.

Fall Chestnuts in Wood Bowl Vignette

In the game room, I filled my mother's wooden bowl with chestnuts. The Halloween "beware" sign may stay there all Fall. Have you ever touched the shell of a chestnut? Ouch! You'd better beware.

Fall Vignette Cotton Boll in Pumpkin

On a side table in the game room, a burlap wrapped pumpkin shape holds a cotton boll.

Fall Cotton in Wood Box

Next to the table, a wooden box holds stems of cotton, a cotton boll tray, and a small cotton-bale replica.

Fall Vignette on Bail of Cotton

 The box of cotton stems is on top of a vintage bale of cotton. I live in cotton-growing country, and this is the way a cotton bale looked when I was growing up. Because of changes in farm machinery, it doesn't look like this anymore.

 Glad to have you come by for a visit.

It all looks so nice. My favorite thing is the horses pulling the wagon of pumpkins. I didn't know chestnuts looked like that.

Laurie, your home always looks so festive, whatever the occasion. I really love this first vignette with the welcome photo and ribbon, adorable. I will be pinning here. The Limoges plate is so pretty and perfect for the season. I always come away with loads of inspiration when I visit.
Have a wonderful November Laurie............

I grew up in Blytheville too and remember those cotton bales from my childhood. My grandfather was a cotton farmer up in the Bootheel near Hayti, so I saw cotton from the time it pushed up through the ground in the spring until it wound up in big old bales. What wonderful memories. My favorite thing was the wagon of pumpkins. I would give a pinky finger to find something like that myself.
