Happy Monday Y’all
How was your weekend? Ours was loaded with football and projects.
I have been talking about the fall season for weeks now along with moving and styling a lot of fall décor.
But…I have yet to move and style any of it in my house. I know I say this a lot but maybe I can find some time “next week.”
To get started, I thought I’d share a few items that we “found” this past weekend.
Fall interiors are loaded with many different textures and materials and good ol’ wood is probably the most used resource out of all of them.
These items are all utilitarian in nature. They had a specific “work” function during their prime and while they are now considered relics, they are still purposeful.
Just in a different way.
This trolley cart appears to be similar to what was once used behind bicycles for deliveries in large cities.
It has a Hong Kong, China stamp along with other markings. The wheels are wood with metal banding.
How perfect would this be filled with hay and pumpkins on your front porch!?
Many of you have seen these wooden spools before. These still have the original thread on a few of them. They are from Stayton, Oregon and the threads were once used to make blankets for the state prison.
Now, they make great candlesticks.
A grouping of three on a harvest table, with long white taper candles, would be beautiful.
Subjectively, this elk hide chair has seen better days.
But there are many who would love it as is and give it a prime location in their home.
How about perched next to the fireplace with a basket of cinnamon cones perched on top?
I love this old saddle with leather tack. I wish I knew it’s history but what I do know is that a) it is very old, and b) I really love it.
It has such a great architectural quality to it.
A great conversation piece sitting spotlight on a shelf.
….this spectacular French dough bowl. It is about four feet long and just under two feet wide, approximately.
Again, the possibilities are endless.
Fill it with pumpkins, wheat bundles, cones, etc…
How about you? Do you like to use wood accents in your fall décor? Year-round?
Have you already started?
A few of these will be for sale in my shop, but a couple have already been dibbed.
