Those of you that have been reading my blog for awhile may have noticed that my couch
is in a different room.
When we moved into our house last year the dining room was too small for our table and so we made the dining room our living room and the living room was our dining room.
Did you get that?
We recently sold our huge dining room set and now I finally get to use the living room as it is intended!
I am really enjoying not having my furniture being so crammed into a tiny space.
Last year Joyce from Quilted Nest did the prettiest display using golden rod in a vintage watering can.
I wanted to do a similar display, but never got around to it.
So this year I was determined to carry out my idea.
These happy yellow flowers grow all over the place where I live and I was determined to get some
to bring home.
I tried to find a fairly empty street so people wouldn't see me collecting the flowers.
Not that I was doing anything wrong, but I just felt weird.
The construction workers across the street were giving me some funny looks as I dashed around clipping flowers as quick as I could before cars drove by and saw me.
I switched out my pastel summer pillow for some brown Fall pillows.
Burlap and plaid are nice and cozy for Fall.
Well actually burlap is actually kinda itchy, but you know what I mean.
I made a little vignette on the side table using demi johns for their color and texture and a little reproduction vintage can used as a vase.
More wildflowers that I found on my little adventure.
They are holding up so well.
I never put water in the can and the flowers are drying out and still look great weeks later.
I really need to go out and look for more to put around my house.
I brought my bee skep into the room.
I love it and always like to use it in my Fall decorating.
What is missing from my Fall living room?
I confess, I took these photos a couple of weeks ago, before pumpkins were in the stores.
For the coffee table vignette, I used a bushel basket lid as a tray and placed my vintage watering can full of wildflowers on top.
I like that the flowers are nice and messy looking.
The rustic look is wonderful in the Fall.
I also placed some antique books and a rope ball on the table.
Thanks for stopping by!
