So long summer . . . . Hello Fall!

We are finally getting our ‘enjoyable’ summer weather.  80 degree days, breezy evenings and cool nights, and an occasional overcast day.  Happily soaking up every minute of it that I can, after a record number of 90 degree days this summer.  So, I’m personally not quite ready for fall, but it’s time for fall in my booth at Stars.

Beach decor / Before yesterday.

Now, Fall decor.  A few little pops of traditional fall colors, but greys and whites for the most part.  More of a rustic farmhouse fall look.

LOTS of grubby old step ladders in stock.  Perfect for displaying pumpkins.

I hand painted all of these white and grey pumpkins, and they all have real wood stems and moss at the base of the stems.

Lots of upcycled, hand painted galvanized cake stands, jars and little side tables.

Those vintage shabby white floral stands I showed you a while back are perfect for displaying this ‘big mama’ pumpkin!  And upside down works great holding this upcycled bowl of little pumpkins.

Made these laser cut metal words signs backed with old fence boards.  Some faux galvanized architectural stars.  Lots of vintage industrial size spools of yarn, vintage gallon jars filled with assorted small spools and balls of yarns and threads.  If you already have your own big jar and only needs the ‘fillers’; there are bags of those available too!

It took me two days to change out all of the inventory on my wall space, so my big booth just got a ‘quick tidying’ this week.

Here’s a quick peek at the rest of my big booth.

Did you notice the THREE metal bottle racks that I have??  I have seriously been looking for one of these forEVER.  I found the big cast iron one first, then the two smaller ones within the next week!

I’ll be adding Halloween decor at the end of the month.

Cottage Harvest Decor

Here is a picture of the white/cream harvest display in the center of the beach cottage section in the store.

You can’t really see it in the picture, but these assorted white gourds have a ‘sugared’ looking coating on them.

And the back side of the table.
