A couple of crows

It's that time of year. The leaves are changing, the air is cooling, and nature is shooting out all kinds of great things to add to your seasonal decor. 
Here are some more sneak peeks at ours. Watch out for the crows!

my favorite current palette. antique silver, white & black, wood and some aged brass

some of these crows end up moving on a day to day basis, as the "tails" from mt-tails like to hunt. Oliver the cat specifially.

 one of two new wreaths i made for the season. i wrapped the wreath form in green pressed velvet, made some fabric flowers, added the pumpkins, birds and feathers and voila.

new gingham pillows added to the living room chairs. i have been a pillow making maniac lately, mostly because i can never find what i am looking for. 

a sweater vase packed with birch and old family photos. you use any old sweater, cut off a sleeve and slide it onto your vase. 


the painting bug attacked again to change the previously orange pumpkin to a champagne gray. another candle version of a sweater vase

the second wreath. fabric flowers and 1 side wrapped in fabric.

the upstairs hallway vignette

anyone that follows me on instagram (oliverandrust) has already seen this sweater vase. this one is a square vase with only 1 birch log.

How are you decorating your house for fall?

Have a great day,

  1. You have such a great decorating style. Love the sweater vases and those huge wheel like things (I'm so technical).

  2. Wow, love love love the sweater vase! Awesome idea! Gorgeous wreaths too, do you do them yourself? Where do you find the beautiful embellishments?


Leave me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
Unless you're being less than friendly, then play like the rabbit and say nothing!
