Cornered For Fall

Happy Monday friends!
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend.
It was a typical Fall weekend her in Michigan.
I have been in a funk lately.
Our show is in a month,
and I have not made one Christmas goodie yet.
Just don't feel like it.
So in between loads of laundry,
and cleaning the house, I just decided to
lay low and just hooked on my rug all weekend.
Saturday I prepared stuffed cabbage in the crock pot,
and my FIL came over for dinner.
We like to have him over as he lives alone,
and since he lives in town, he is close by.

Yesterday I had fun watching a chipmunk 
scampering about our backyard. 
I have not seen one of these in the yard in years.
It brought joy seeing it!
I also watched my favorite Halloween movie.
Hocus Pocus.

Today is the reveal of the final corner
of my back room Autumn theme.

I have always loved this quilted kitty.

Gold Indian Corn on our blue corner cabinet.

Blue and Gold at its finest.

Pumpkin Pine cabinet,
with gold child's chairs.
My grands use to sit in these.

Moved my bucket bench to this side of the room.

Blue and gold flowers inside this crock.

Love my wood piggin.

Our drysink holds our lamp and clock.

The full corner.

So since I moved the bucket bench over here,
the bench had to go somewhere else.

Will show you what I did in another post.

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!
Off to work I go....

Cornered For Fall Blessings To All!


  1. Hi Janice! Hoping your funk passes soon, but it is nice to lay low every once in awhile. Love that quilted kitty. I used to have several like it, but I got rid of them when I went through a "no antique/vintage/country" phase. That lasted about three days and I really regret getting did of many of the things I did! Have a great week! Jane

    1. Me too Jane. I did however finish my just have to back it and show it off. Oh I could never part with my antiques. Even the thought gives me the heeby jeebies. Janice

  6. Today my computer will allow me to post!! I really enjoy how you group items together with a few key colors or ideas to create a theme. Your new revised space feels warm and cozy which is perfect for this fall season! Your pumpkin pine cubboard is beautiful and a piece that looks functional for many uses.

  7. YIPPEE! I always have fun thinking up ways to change up our home. I have quite the surprise in store for my Christmas decor! Stay tuned. Our pumpkin pine cupboard is one of the first ones we purchased, and i still love it. Made a chicken pot pie for dinner tonight. We had a frost this morning and having a warm dish was yummy tonight.
