Autumn Elegance Vignettes and Hutch in the Living Room, 2021

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Welcome to Debbie-Dabble Blog!!

 
I am so happy you decided to stop by!!
 
Just a reminder, I will be posting on Wednesdays and Sundays every week so be sure to check back on those days to see a new post...... 
 
 Today, I will finally be sharing some of my "Autumn Elegance" decorations in the Living Room......
 
 
 
But first a few Personal Notes...
 

In Joe's travels on Friday, I asked him to check if the Amish Farmer that comes to the Convenience Store down the road from us every Friday had any gourds.....

He came home with these......
 
 

$1.00 each!!!!

The Farmer said that some had broken stems which is why they were only $1.00......

As soon as I saw them, I knew what I was going to do with them......

Topiary!!!!!

They fit perfectly together........

It gave this side of the flower bed in front of our house just the little added bit of Fall it needed.......

They are also very heavy!!!!


Not bad for $3.00 total!!

Our son Joey treats us to Dinner every Friday evening and since Joe wanted to make a pizza for himself, it was the perfect opportunity for Joey and I to have Chinese!!

We both had Chicken Lo Mein without the vegetables....

Joey had the large portion.....

I had the smaller portion......

This is the pizza that Joe made for himself....

 
 
On Saturday, I was surprised with a package that came in the mail......
 
 Bev, over at Eclectic Red Barn, gifted me these beauties......

Bev knew I have a red Kitchen and she knew that these would be perfect for it.......

I just love them all but will you look at this darling piece......

So darn cute!!!


Thanks so much, Bev!!!!

I love them all!!!!


You may remember that in a previous post, I shared that I made this topiary by painting it with a Rust treatment.......


I mentioned that I still needed to add some leaf garland once I unpacked it after getting the Fall tubs down from the attic.....

In the mean time, I put it out on the front porch.......
 


I tried to match it up to the Jack O Lantern on the table.....

Didn't think I did too badly.......

Here it is with the garland that I knew I had added to it.....




In my last post, I shared my method of packing away my "normal" decor for the Holidays.....

I showed you that I pack them up in small boxes......

I marked on the boxes where the things inside are displayed......


Once the Fall tubs were emptied out, I put the boxes into the corresponding tubs....


 When I pack up the Fall decorations at the end of the Season, I remove these boxes and when I unpack the Christmas decorations, put these small boxes into those corresponding tubs.....



Makes it so much easier for me when decorating for each Holiday and Season.....
 
 
 
Since Tuesday, I have been transforming the Living Room from my late Summer "Under the Sea" theme to my "Autumn Elegance" theme for Fall.....

Tuesday, I cleaned and packed away all the "Under the Sea" decorations.....

Wednesday, I cleaned, polished furniture and changed out all the linens for my Fall/Winter ones.....

 
 
 
 
 
 
On Thursday, I took down all the Spring/Summer curtains and drapes, cleaned windows and mirrors and hung my Fall/Winter curtains and drapes......

 


 
 

On Friday, I started to decorate the room, doing the table vignettes and the hutch.....

On Saturday, I did the Harvest Village on top of the TV Entertainment Center and tweaked a few more things in the room......

Today, I will be sharing some of the vignettes in the Living Room.....

We will start at the Front Door....

When you walk in, this marble topped stand is to your right.....

You will see that I used a lot of Dollar Tree ceramic pumpkins that I bought a few years ago to decorate..........

To the left when you walk in, is the Hutch.......

There are 2 shelves on each side of the Hutch......

I changed things around a bit on these shelves, moving the gourd candleholders here from the Kitchen.....

The top of the Hutch......

I bought the plaques on Clearance 3 years ago in Dollar General and I placed Fall dishes behind them......

You may remember that I made these pumpkins out of thread stools.....

I decided to display them on the top of the Hutch.......

I did something a little different this year with the Harvest Village that I set up on the top of the TV Entertainment Center so I moved this Fall tree here to the Hutch......


I just added a few pumpkins, ornaments and gourd tea lights to the inside of the Hutch to give it a Fall look......

The shelf on the other side of the Hutch.....


On the stairs.......

I decorated the lanterns with Fall bows that I made and a few pumpkins inside.....

An Atumum Angel sits on the step between the lanterns.....

The other side of the stairs.....

You may remember that I bought this pumpkin at Dollar Tree......

I hung it behind this wreath that I made......


I bought this sign in Dollar General a few years ago at 90% off........


On the steps........

I did the arrangement in the tin pocket......

Toilet paper pumpkins that I made a long time ago.......


In the corner by the stairs........

I love to decorate this chair for the various Holidays and Seasons.....

I used some of the pumpkins that I embellished several years ago.....

 

Underneath the chair.....

Again, I made this not long ago out of Pringles cans.....

There it is next to the lantern that has an orange glass pumpkin inside of it.....

Next to the chair is my LED branch Tree....


 I decorated it with copper ornaments and gold and aqua leaf ornaments.....

The Tree is sitting in a galvanized tray filled with pumpkins that I embellished.....

 

Next to the Tree is a Curio......

On the side of the Curio, is the Topiary that I made from this.....

 

 

And now it looks like this!!!

Over by the divider between the Living Room and Dining Room is my Nostalgic Stereo system and table that we bought in an antique co op.......

The chubby holes on the stand......

A floral arrangement that I did in this flea market find......


Over on the other side of the Living Room/Dining Room divider is my large round table......
 
 




 
 



 
 
 

On the side of the TV Entertainment Center is my 3 tiered vintage table.....

An Autumn Tea for one set and an orange tea cup and saucer set that is heart shaped inside.....

The bottom shelves.....

Over on the other side of the TV Entertainment Center.......

A smaller round table.......

 
 


On Saturday, I set up the Harvest Village on top of the TV Entertainment Center......


Today, on Sunday, I decorated my Autumn Elegance Tree and underneath it......

I will be sharing both the Village and the Tree on Wednesday....

So I hope you will stop by to visit again soon!!

Stay safe, healthy and most of all, HAPPY!!
