Juicy Autumn Goodness

Hello ladies, gents and all my blogging folk.
Yes once again I am
Falling back in love with our guest bedroom.
Falling back meaning 
it is filled with Autumn juiciness.
{is that even a word}
Oh well. I am head over heels how it turned out
this year...and what I had in my head worked out.

I have so much to show and tell....
feel like I am back in school. LOL
I am giddy with excitement.

I like to use faux flowers in my decor,
so my kitties will not eat something 
that might be harmful to them.
When I saw these pears at Michaels....
I said to myself... I had to have them.
40% with my coupon. YAY
Three bushes fit perfectly into my white firkin.
Plus blue and yellow compliment each other,
so this little placement goes well with the 
pears and blue tick fabric together.

Then the voices in my head said.
Janice you need more pears for your egg basket.
Of course I only had green ones up in the attic,
so once again I was on the hunt.
This time Pier 1 had these yellowish pears on sale,
so at 30% off, they also came home with me.

Do you see where the juiciness comes in?

I then added my General Store Sad Iron display.
There are actually 3 sad irons to this display.
The third one is in the back.
It is so very heavy that I have to remove each iron
before I can move it anywhere.
Can you even imagine
 if you had to iron your clothes with these?
Gramma H use to put hers on the wood stove to heat,
then iron her clothes.
Heat and repeat.  
We have it so good now.

Juicy Autumn Goodness don't you think?

This room I display my sewing related prims
and other items that make me smile.
Do you notice my latest parasol.
The dress form on the left is an early linen one.

A few goodies placed on the child's chair.

The wall next is where you would wash your hands
and use the bathroom. 
This is an early wash stand.
We have it so good now.

Ironstone pitcher and basin.

An ironstone chamber pot 
or as they are sometimes called;
a thunder pot.
Can you imagine using this as your bathroom?
We have it so good now.

My hanging cabinet above.
Wood hat mold to the left.
Early iron shoe last display on the right.

Hanging from the cabinet
is some tallow berries, a mirror and wood thread holder.
Very prim indeed don't you think?

Love the colors here.

A simple look.

The colors go well for fall don't you think?

View from the bedroom door.

Looking from our closet door.

 Sneak peek of the bed.

I have so much to show in this room,
that I will feature it in the next two posts.
Hope you enjoyed the look so far.

Juicy Autumn Goodness Blessings To All!


  1. Fooled me-- thought you had grown a pear tree in a pot!

  2. Looks great Janice.
    Yes, we do have it good.
    Happy hump day :)

  3. Hi Janice,
    Everything looks so lovely together!! I love pears, too!!
    I absolutely adore so much about the past but do appreciate our modern conveniences today!! Looking forward to seeing more of your room!
    Enjoy your weekend!
    Heart Hugs~

  4. Your spare bedroom looks wonderful with all of your prims to fill it up. The pear tree looks cute in the firkin too, and who doesn't love juicy pears in the Fall? I have some ripening as we speak in my kitchen. Yeh, that chamber pot deal is kinda gross. I remember at my Grandparent's house, we used one at night instead of trekking out to the outhouse. But, then you have to face cleaning the thing in the morning so I preferred to trek out to the outhouse. We do have it so good when it comes to indoor plumbing!

    Have a great Labor Day Weekend!!

  5. Oh it looks quite lovely now Janice! Looking forward to seeing the rest. :)

  6. It all looks lovely- nice styling. Hope you are doing great :)
