There's Consequences To Being a Fallen Woman

...unpack all the Fall things and get to decorating!!

I'm joining Mary for the first time at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday! My mosaic is not a beautiful one but a messy one! I crawled up into the attic and brought down my two Fallness boxes and then I unpacked. You know you have to make a mess to decorate. I did have a little help from my little fuzzy faced Chloe Dawn.

I'm trying to get my Fallness going and today I'm also joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday. So from unpacked boxes of Fallness to decorated Fallness in my home.

As you come into the entry of my house this olden six legged table is the first thing you see. My table is now Fallen!

A trio of pumpkins, a vase with hydrangeas (faux of course!) and a teeny little bird.

Tweet tweet!

On the shelf below I added a Fallen bowl and decorative carpet balls (altho these have openings between the swirls) and Fallen veggies.

We're coming into the living room on the left side of the foyer and look! My coffee table is Fallen!

Florals (again, faux) and pumkins. I usually use those vases to hold pillar candles.

There's nothing that says Autumn any better than Fallen books and artichokes under a cloche! :)

More Fallen pumpkins and a cloche.

Now we're in the den and I have my olden Duncan Phyfe table set up. It's Fallen too! Now don't hate me when you see the bright turquoise tureen there in all of her jolt your toes color! Mr. Precious got this for me many years ago when we were in Italy. So she sits here proudly most all of the time and just smiles! She even looks a little Fallen with her cargo!

I would like to introduce you to my newest Fallen treasures...three glass pumpkins found at Marshalls! I just love these. Can you love Fallen glass pumpkins from Marshalls? Why, you bet your jackolanterns you can! :)

Here's Fallen Baby pumpkin...actually, she just may be a gourd not fully growed. Do you remember the Tammy movies starring Debbie Reynalds?

Here's Fallen Big Daddy pumpkin...

...and here's Fallen Short Fat Fanny Mommy pumpkin! : )

Now across the room is a little birdie candle stand I found last year at Pier 1! What a wonderful place for more Falleness!

On each side of the Fallen candle stand are two little tiny birdie votives. Instead of a candle I just added a little Fallen bloom.

I found another candle holder which seems to match my others. This time the candles will have to do. But I told her she looked very Fallen.

Oh, my dog figurine just had to be Fallen too! So I gave him a tiny pumpkin to put into his basket. He's already dropped the Fallen gourd.

More Falleness - Dollar Tree pumpkins.

Now my Fallen mantle. I get carried away sometimes and just don't know when to stop adding things. I think my mind has certainly got Fallen written all over it!

I recently found this little wire cloche! I'm loving it to pieces! I dressed her up and now she stands proudly in all of her Falleness! It almost looks like the little bird on top is wearing a crown. It's just a glass button on the mirror. Well, I don't think it's really a button, but that's what I like to call it! :)

Fallen books and Fallen pumpkins...a great match!

This is the coffee table filled with Falleness! A basket filled will Fallen nuts, berries and a large candle. By the looks of that flame, we could roast marshmellows, don't you think?

I've placed another little pumpkin under a small cloche on a stand and she stands proudly by a music box and Fallen leaves!

Well, this is my Mosaic Monday and Met Monday Fallen post. If you come back tomorrow I'll continue my tour into the kitchen.

Be a bunch of Fallen sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

The Lady Is A Tramp

She gets too hungry, for dinner at eight
She loves the theater, but doesn't come late
She'd never bother, with people she'd hate
That's why the lady is a tramp

Doesn't like crap games, with barons and earls
Won't go to Harlem, in ermine and pearls
Won't dish the dirt, with the rest of those girls
That's why the lady is a tramp

She loves the free, fresh wind in her hair
Life without care
She's broke, but it's o'k
She hates California, it's cold and it's damp
That's why the lady is a tramp

Doesn't like dice games, with sharpies and frauds
Won't go to Harlem, in Lincolns or Fords
Won't dish the dirt, with the rest of those broads
That's why the lady is a tramp
~sung by Frank Sinatra


  1. Divine! Simply divine!

    You just slay me with all your Growed Up Humor and all! :) :) :) Love the pumpkins with the swirls. My favs!

    Love to you~Rebecca

  2. Shelia, what a cute post! You crack me up with all the "fallen" stuff! I thoroughly enjoyed your wonderful sense of humor and lovely fallen things. My favs - the darling little dog with the b&w checked bow and the wire cloche. Wow - wonderful! Linda

  3. You have done a great job being a "fallen woman" all your cute stuff! The wire cloche is especially sweet!!!!

  4. I enjoyed the tour of your fallen house! Love the song at the end!!!!! My house looks like your mosaic right now!!!!! DH is off for the weekend and both girls are at college and I have never had to unpack all this by my self so it's SLOW going. Up the ladder, down the ladder. At least I'm getting some fallen exercise, I just don't want to FALL! Love everything escpecially your mantle!!!:D Jewel

  5. Hi Sheila,
    You are for sure the most fallen woman of all! hehe. Love all your glorious falleness! Every room is a delight and all the nooks and crannies! Thanks for the inspiration my most falleness! Cindy

  6. Well honey, you have sure fallen for Fall. And it's GORGEOUS.

    Wow -- what a fabulous collection of ceramic and glass pumpkins (don't let them FALL -- they'd break!).

    I can't find all my pumpkins! We moved here, and some boxes got stuffed into the attic I guess and I haven't been able to locate them yet. I'll keep looking!

    BTW LOVE those Johnson Bros dishes you got -- an amazing buy! Where DO you shop????? And that little pitcher might be from an individual creamer, for use on a morning bed tray!


  7. Ooh Shelia, it all looks SO good! Makes me wish I could see REAL leaves changing colors!

    Justine :o )

  8. Oh I just love, love, love it all. So many wonderful ideas. I really do have to get busy. Everything just looks so pretty. Hugs, Marty

  9. O my goodness...Fall has surely taken up residence at your beautiful home!! Everything looks so pretty and fallish and beautiful!!
    Great job, Shelia girl....

  10. Hi Sheila
    Thanks for sharing all your fallen goodies! Everything looks amazing. I especially love your mantle and the basket of berries on your coffee table. This post is an extra treat for me because we do not decorate for fall in England! Can you believe that?
    Hope you are having a lovely Sunday.

  11. Shelia ~ You write so beautifully ... I get such a chuckle!

    Your decor & presentation is lovely.
    TY for sharing.

    TTFN ~ Marydon

  12. For a fallen woman, you sure have style! I remember D.R. as Tammy very well, loved those movies!
    I guess I'm going to have to fire up my little buggy and have it carry me downtown to check and see if I can find treasures at Marshall's and The Dollar Store too because I am not yet fallen. I hang on to summer for everything she's worth but it is about time to accept the inevitable!

  13. Dear One,
    Tis beautiful what you've deck your haven out with.
    Aren't the Harvest/Fall colors inviting?
    Very nice.
    God Bless,

  14. Your new fall blog and home decorating is beautiful...fall makes me want to nest...

  15. Shelia, I love it all....can I come live with you!!!! Your home is so welcoming! Just lovely.

    Hugs, Barb ♥

  16. Well, you fallen woman, you! Everything is beautiful. I laughed about the mirror and not knowing when to quit. I think my buffet is like that...but part of the problem is, WHERE to put it all? So, if one looks good, surely 7 will look better!!

  17. You have a lot of beautiful fallen decorations to beautify your home. It sure is getting me in the mood to get more of my fall stuff out.

  18. I hope you plan on posting this to the Celebrate the Holidays party on Wed.

    Be sure to come by tonight around 9pm (Eastern time) for the announcement so you don't miss out. I promise-it good-really really good.
    Its So Very Cheri

  19. Oh my -- Fall has certainly arrived at your house! It's just beginning to creep into mine!

  20. I am laughing so much at your great post title! You are so witty! That is just too funny. Your decor looks beautiful though. I love the way you put pumpkins on candle holders and everywhere else! I'm going to go looking in my holiday closet to see if I can find some little pumpkins to put on candleholders just like Shelia did! You know imitation is the highest form of flattery. You know Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses is having a fall party Tues? You should link to that too. laurie

  23. Hi Shelia
    I love this post. Your home is certainly well dressed for fall. I came by today to invite you to join in my welcome fall party on Tuesday to celebrate the first day of fall.

  46. What a beautiful colorful post. You have a lot of decorations lady. And all so lovely.
    Have a nice day

  47. Hi

    I love all the wonderful Autumn colours. It is not something we do in the UK. On Hallowen a few pumpkins will be put outside the front door with night lights inside, but I have never seen it to such an extent before. I am looking forward to seeing how my other blogger friends decorate their houses for the fall!!

    Thank you for visiting my blog.

    God bless, Jackie.

  48. I am being dragged, kicking and screaming, into fall. I haven't pulled out one fall decorating thing yet but you have given me lots of inspiration! I love your little ceramic pumpkins :)


  49. You're a woman living in a fallin house; oh dear! I do hope that you don't become a fallin woman!

    I love the turquoise BLUE dish from Italy.

  50. Your home looks so cozy. I loved my visit this morning. Beeeautiful~
    All Things Heart and Home

  51. Hi Shelia
    Oh my your place has suddenly Fallen...and so beautifully too. YOu have quite the collection.
    I love your little Tweet Tweet and the "tree" with the candles and all the fall items is lovely. I wish I had one like that.
    You have beautiful pumpkins in all kinds of glass that are adorable.
    Enjoy your Fall home...its lovely

  52. just to be clear...did you say that was messy??? If that is right...then I think I have big BIG issues!!!
    you are a fallen woman alright...talent must weigh you are loaded with it lady...your work is just beautiful!

  53. very cute decorations. i love everything! especially those birdie stands!!

  54. Wow! You have been busy with fall decorating! Everything looks so festive. Now you are ready for a party.

  55. Love your Fall mosaic and your clever title with your running commentary. You remind me of a friend who decorates her house to the MAX no matter what the season. I confess I'm a minimalist beach gal ... not yet ready for summer to end.
    Thanks for visiting my mosaics at Small Reflections, Sacred Ruminations and Happily Retired Gal too. I appreciate your comments and hope you're having a delightful day. Now that my morning Power Point class is over, I'm catching up on blog visits.
    Hugs and blessings,

  56. Love those artichokes, the clear glass gourd and the white pumpkin. MmmmmHmmmm. Gonna have to get me to Marshalls now.

    Thanks for sharing!

  57. I kind of admire a "fallen" woman. Gives her a little character.

  58. You did a great job! I love your mosaic and I love all your Fall decorating. I think my most favorite though is a toss up between your mantle and the bottom shelf of your hall table. So pretty!
    Beautiful job!
    I'm trying to get 'Fallen' too, but I haven't been able to post about it yet. Too many sick people here at home to care for!
    All the best,

  59. Oh my goodness, Shelia, you have the most gorgeous fall decorations! Thanks so much for sharing your lovely images at Mosaic Monday. :)

  60. Oh wow, Shiela, fall has really invaded your house and everything looks good! You have such a fine collection! Wonderful! I've created my very first mosaic and each time I visit a new page, I learn something new! :)

  61. Oh,oh,oh ! I am coveting that wire cloche ! LOL ! I am on the hunt !

    You have some purdy punkins miss Sheila !

  62. Sheila,
