 What comes after the pumpkins?

 ....the candy?

....the turkey???

 Christmas, of course!

 The elves came early to my booth at the Antique Mall leaving touches of the 
Christmas season at every turn.
A few deer here...
 and there...

Vintage ornaments sprinkled everywhere.

Come by and see for yourself!!

At Home with Fall

I have been enjoying adding a few Fall touches to our home. Mr. Ella and I moved in last Christmas and have finally started to decorate. Life is funny how it throws unexpected happenings in your path along the way. 
All is good though...
We love where we live and are looking forward to the upcoming holidays.
The house was built in the 1880's or 90's. My style is  not what most would expect when walking into
a Victorian home. I have decided to bring pieces from that era into this century, but with a current pop of style.

Two large old corbels topped with an old cabinet door make the perfect entry table for holiday decorating.
A few chimney brushes, cement pipes, old horns, books and birds mixed with a touch of new mercury glass lamps greet you as you enter.
I can't wait to share more pics with you along this journey!
Visit my other blog, Romantic Prairie for photos of the reno process.
