Fall Is In The Air!


Fall is in the air at Monticello this week! Lots of people are setting up for the Fall show. It should be a lot of fun! Seeing all the Fall items just got me in the mood to make pumpkins for my space at Monticello.
I decided to pick up some pumpkins and give them a fresh coat of paint with a cinnamon concoction applied to each of them. I then decorated each one with ribbons and vintage jewelry. I think they're pretty sweet!



I went to Coburg on Sunday for the antique show. What a great event! I did come home with a few items. I took quite a few pictures also. While going through my pictures, I noticed the sweetest little pincushion. The strange thing was I hadn't noticed it while I was busy flashing my camera. Fortunately for me, it belonged to my friend Lisa from A Thing For Roses. I was able to pick it up from her today. She gave me a great deal on it! Thanks Lisa!

She's the sweet little pink fish on the shelf. This was one of many displays in Lisa's booth.



Here are a few of the items I ended up bringing home.




My #1 was pretty pleased with himself. He found a fun old box with fishing items in it. He offered less and got it, I think that's why there's a big smile on his face!



He loves his vintage fishing!

Thanks for stopping by!
