Fall in the Kitchen

Hello, Dear Ones! Thanks to you all who visited my previous post about the repainting of our kitchen and your sweet comments! I loved them all. Well, I'm still unpacking boxes but am beginning to slow down a little bit. I actually took out a little time to play, um, decorate a little bit for fall in the kitchen so let me show you...
 Now if you visit me much you're going to recognize my treasures as I continue to use them over and over again. I love these olden canisters and I thought they would look nice on the countertops and the little fall gourd just looked sweet with them. See that red cabbage plate? Well, as I've told you I just love me some red!
 I am loving this window sill and I Falled it up!
 Just love using my olden scales too.
Couldn't resist poking a couple little fake pun'kins on the window sill. I'm talented like that you know! ;)
 Isn't this a sweet little bird bowl, I guess that's what it is, but a pear seemed to work in it just fine.
 Gotta have a Rooster or two!
 My little breakfast hutch fits perfectly here on this wall and I tried to make it as Fallen as I could.
One more peep at my breakfast hutch! I'm so behind with my Fall decorating and hopefully I can do some more after I get the boxes unpacked. Then where do I put it all? There is less storage in this house and it's about 1,000 square feet smaller but we have a huge basement! Now all of my boxes are in the basement and I'm just unpacking to beat the band but I don't know where to put it all! I guess I've got to go buy more plastic tubs! 

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Autumn in New York

Autumn in New York
Why does it seem so inviting?
Autumn in New York
It spells the thrill of first-knighting

Glittering crowds and shimmering clouds
In canyons of steel
They're making me feel
I'm home

It's autumn in New York
That brings the promise of new love
Autumn in New York
Is often mingled with pain

Dreamers with empty hands
May sigh for exotic lands
It's autumn in New York
It's good to live it again

Lovers that bless the dark
On benches in Central Park
It's autumn in New York
It's good to live it again 
~ sung by Frank Sinatra

  3. I can't believe how quickly you are pulling your new place together, all the fall decor look fab in the new place. I love to use the same pieces over and over again too.

  4. Shelia, Love your Fall decorating! That kitchen widow sill is the best place to decorate!! I know what it feels like to have less storage space. You will downsize a little...maybe! Hugs!

  5. Looks like Shelia now!! Love all your falling pieces.........what's wrong with using things over again?? If you love it, use it........we all do the same.....it's good to be frugal. Get some shelving units in that huge basement and load it up with plastic bins, set up a table to work on and you can craft down there too. I keep one entire season on one unit, its good to be organized!!

  6. Well, my girl -- glad to see it hasn't taken you long to begin the fluffer-ating of your new home! Even if you are not unpacked.
    You've got such a flair for making things pretty!
    (Those canisters? I swoon.)
    Love, Cass

  7. You are unpacking and getting settled and you have more fall than I do. Looks great, Shelia. Your bay window is wonderful. What a great feature to use for every season. Love your hutch too.

  8. Looking good Shelia! I'm glad to see you are getting all your favorite things out and your fall decorating is in motion! I know it's a big job to set up storage but with the basement at least you can have plenty of it! We just re-did the storage area with metal shelf units and clear plastic tubs. I like the clear so I can see what's inside of them, plus I put something on them to describe what's in them. It helps. So happy for you that you are close to your family! Hugs, Liz

  13. I cannot believe you've had time to decorate for fall! I knew you would have fun with that windowsill.
    My basement is where all of things are stored. My husband built a wall of shelves and I put everything in storage bins. I like Liz's idea of using clear bins so you can see what is inside. A lot of work but it will all get done in time.
    Have a great weekend

  16. Autumn, autumn, autumn!
    A season
    Full of great things
    A season that brings
    Happiness to people
    And animals
    Autumn, autumn, autumn!
    Birds singing
    Their morning songs
    Praising the lord
    For the fruits
    Provided in the wild
    Autumn, autumn, autumn!
    Butterflies flying
    All over the gardens
    Enjoying the scent
    From the flowers
    Autumn, autumn, autumn!
    Bees buzzing
    From flower to flower
    Collecting pollen
    And making honey
    Autumn, autumn, autumn!
    Cows mooing
    In the forest
    Enjoying
    The green and fresh grass
    Autumn, autumn, autumn!
    Children sitting
    Around the fire
    Eating corn, watermelons,
    Sweet reeds and squashes
    Autumn, autumn, autumn
    A season that is fruitful.
