Since nobody from L.A. (lower alabama) has come up here and killed me yet as a result of his backing into my formerly pristine car last week on my vacation (boy, am I mad about that!), I decided to move on with a little Fallish decorating. I didn't buy anything Fallish-wise for inside the house, but we did get some
|I AM IN LOVE!|
|lots of red transfer ware|
|Nice English tea set|
|Insanely cheap pieces of Irish Wedgewood, I think?|
I have worked my derriére off today, dragging fall stuff out of the attics, and making Sweet Husband run up and down the stairs with all the seashell stuff from the summer, and that was a real labor of love for him to tear himself away from football for a couple of minutes, let me tell you. I am choking on all the dust because I forgot to pop the Claritin this morning.
|Lots of this stuff is still coming from decommissioned churches in Europe.|
Those godless heathens...
|The similar sconces I almost bought last year are long gone.|
When I was half-blind before my recent eye surgeries, I never knew my house had so much blooming dust. I couldn't see it, so therefore it didn't exist. Now that the scales have fallen from my eyes, there is always dust everywhere, and I have run through god knows how many Swiffers, trying to catch it all. I am beginning to see the attraction to Minimalist design.
|Love this rope wrapped lamp frame at Villa Decor!|
|These mirrors are a hot item right now|
|cute little trio of mirrors|
|Be still my heart...|
I have only made a small dent in the fall decorating because I have been simultaneously doing laundry, and now I have to stop and make an apple pie. Comforts of Home posted a recipe for one made with maple syrup and I am giving it a whirl. All her food is good, so go over and look at her blog.
|I am considering this coffee table...|
it also can be ordered in gold leaf.
This store has the most fabulous Oushak rugs.
|Fabulous little x-bench with a|
Greek key motif
|This one is also under consideration.|
I like that it is so different.
|I forget the name of this restaurant.|
I am going to try it next time.
|These lamps and jars would be so perfect in the Man-Cave re-do we are working on.|
Too bad we didn't win that Mega-Millions lottery later in the week!
To satisfy any idle curiosity about my decorating plans, I have bought the six white dining chairs I saw in Fairhope, and I have my vintage 1969 Thomasville cane- backs for sale. (There is a table, too.) You can look at the top of this blog and open that page from the Pages bar drop down just under the big picture. And, being the wonderful shopper that I am, I am sharing all these photos of great stuff I saw in the shops there on my recent visit.
|Everything (nearly) in this store is white.|
|très chic -- a cow hide on the table|
|Vines growing on the interior, a la Rose Tarlow|
|These things always remind me of Barnabas Collins in Dark Shadows...|
|The main entrance to the aforementioned restaurant|
|Oh yeah, it's Isabella's!|
|modest maidens getting potted|
