Howdie friends. We are having a great old time here in the low lands. To say that our Fall weather has been mild, would be an understatement. It feels like summer here.
Maybe that’s why it is now well into Oktober and I still haven’t fully committed to Fall decorating yet. My mantel is still very bare as we speak. I took summer down but I haven’t been inspired for a new Fall look yet.
I did however create a little Fall decor with green vintage bottles.
I don’t know what it is about green, but it seems to be popping up in my decorating more and more. It is giving blue a run for its money….
I think it pairs wonderfully with the browns from pine cones and branches and it is such a peaceful color.
I combined new and old here. The oil lamp is most definitely new. I found it at Action, A Dutch discount store. It was a steal and I could not possibly leave it behind. In fact I didn’t twice, because I got another one in ….. you guessed it …….. blue.
That one will pop up in a vignette very soon too, I have no doubt.
I think the new glass pairs well with the old French bottles.
Found those in a newly discovered vintage treasure trove. I found the store and then made myself not go there for a long time, because I knew things would get out of hand.
Then my Love stepped in. He was still waiting for that perfect birthday gift to come along. And then he caught me staring at the webpage once more. So he intervened, gave me a budget and told me to go wild in there. And I did….
These two vintage bottles are just the beginning. I posted a glimpse of the rest of my treasures here.
My little tv watching, magazine reading, tea sipping and nap taking corner has a new vibe.
Perfect for those Fall evenings that are getting longer by the day.
Fall decorating with green vintage bottles. Doesn’t get any easier than this.
How is Fall treating you these days? Did you bring out the gloves yet? Or are you hanging on to post-summer days like we are?
