Fall Foyer Vignette

9.17.2012

I have changed the vignette on the antique side board in the foyer to transition into fall. I shared this large basket with you that I spotted at a new antique mall. I didn't buy it the first couple of visits there, but third time's a charm. It had to come home with me.

For now it is filled with dried hydrangeas. I will probably change them out to pumpkins and gourds in a few weeks. Right now we are transitioning between summer and fall and the hydrangeas work fine.

I brought my squirrel out of storage and added a candle and some moss.







I threw this little dried gourd in the other day just for fun.



Now, this is the way I roll around here. After taking pictures of the vignette I decided to add this canvas print here to add another layer. 

Home Sweet Home makes me think of being cozy and spending times indoors and enjoying family around the holidays which will be here before you know it.

The basket was $35 which is really not a bad price for one so large and old.

  4. I agree with you, for such a large basket $35 is a good price. It sure has wonderful patina! I love it filled with hydrangeas. I wonderful if you could hide some candle sticks in the flowers and then "float" small pumpkins on top? Speaking of candlesticks...I LOVE your squirrel candlestick!! It is soooo cute!!!

  6. So pretty, Kim! I really love how you used the moss at the base of the candle...I've never thought of that! Adds natural texture and softens the hard candle edge so nicely!

  9. Your squirrel is absolutely one of my favorites of yours. The basket is charming too. It would also be great filled with pine cones in winter.

  10. I saw that little squirrel on facebook and had to scurry over ;) I love it. He(?) is so cute. I would love one just like it! It looks beautiful. I get you on the transition stage. I'm not ready for full blown pumpkins. We still have some sun and I am soaking it up before the weather turns.

  20. Beautiful! And I've been hunting all over the internet for a squirrel candleholder like that - love it! (No luck, yet). Although it's kinda funny I do love it since we just had to have 6 squirrels trapped and relocated that had taken up residence in our walls ($100 per squirrel - ack!) Hilton 5-Star Squirrel Hotel is closed! Glad you went back for the basket that was calling your name.

  59. Your whole arrangement is lovely. I just love those pops of green. Did your hydrangeas naturally dry that color? And, if so, are they green when in bloom as well? Perhaps that is a silly question... Mine tend to be blue or pink. I think I want some green now.;)

  65. There's so much that I love about this vignette, starting with the mirror and the buffet. I love that you repeated the circle pattern from the mirror with the plates. And the basket looks so bountiful....I think it's perfect for Fall. You have such great taste!
