Fall In The Entry

Hello, Dear Ones! I've done a little decorating in the entry and wanted to show it to you.
My little table fits just perfectly here. This entry is so small compared to the one in our Galveston house but I'm trying to make it work. I'm thankful to have a little entry.
This is not the lamp I wanted to use. I wanted to used the pretty one that the movers busted up. The man who is helping to fix our things says he thinks he can fix it. So until then, this one will have to do.
Here's a peep at my little fall vignette.
A pair of my Staffys look so fallish that I thought they should sit on the table with pun'kins.
How I love my little Staffys.
I put together a little something on the shelf underneath too. I'm so talented like that. :) You do know I'm always teasing.
This is the little mirror that I had at the little house (our little condo) in the dining room and thought it would look fine in my entry. Of course I poked up a fall garland on it.
Here's the staircase right across from my table. You can't see them all but I hung the same vintage bird prints up the staircase as I did in my former house.
This is the MLS listing of the entry. It's not this big as the photographer used a wide lens. I really liked her pretty curio. Yeah, you're seeing that dining room wallpaper and I don't know if you can tell but that crown molding has GOLD on it! Yep! I'm still working on the dining room and will show you when I get it together.
This is the staircase side and again, it's not this big.
This is how it looks now. The walls were white and we had them painted "Biscuit" by Sherwin Williams. We used this color almost all over the house. I did add some little shears to the sidelight windows on either side of the door. Okay, here's where I need your advice again. I need to spiff up this area and I'm not really sure what to do. I really don't want to paint the inside of the door although I know that would bring in some color. There's lots of pretty muted colors in the slate floor. I probably should poke some art on the walls behind my olden coat rack. I love that coat rack - it's from the 1940s and for now I just poked my bookpage rose wreath up on it.
I had to place my wreath on the outside of the storm door because it was getting crushed under the glass. Just as long as the squirrels and chipmunks don't decide to play in it! ;)
Oh, Dear Ones, it's so beautiful here. The leaves are falling from the trees in our woods, the weather is crisp, cool and the air smells so clean. I'm slowing down a bit on my unpacking and just enjoying my new/old home and even made a pot of chili tonight! :)


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)
 I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ (I heard this on Serius RadioXM and wanted to share it with you)


The Wayward Wind

The wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

In a lonely shack by a railroad track
He spent his younger days
And I guess the sound of the outward-bound
Made him a slave to his wand'rin ways

And the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

Oh, I met him there in a border town
He vowed we'd never part
Though he tried his best to settle down
I'm now alone with a broken heart

And the wayward wind is a restless wind
A restless wind that yearns to wander
And he was born the next of kin
The next of kin to the wayward wind

The next of kin to the wayward wind
