Fall decorating from years past

Pin It Now!

I've been so busy I haven't had time to take photos for my blog so I went back into my archives and looked through my October 2007 and 2008 posts. I have to say that one of the great things about blogging is that I have pictures of all the decorating I've done in my apartment! I forgot that I did each of these things so it was great to see the pictures to refresh my memory!
The photo above is from 2007! The boots are old Victorian boots that look like they have hardly been worn. My mom bought them at a thrift store when I was little. My dad made the wooden crow with the cherry in it's mouth.

Take care,

Love the crow! Dads are special, aren't they!

Tammy/Yesterday's Cottage said...

Oh how I love those boots! I've been wanting a pair forever, but the only ones I can find are at our antique malls and go for $85-$125/pr.! At those prices, I'll just keep dreaming and enjoying yours!

Looooove the crow! And those boots!! Perfect!

Of course I also love the cloche!

Cindy, so glad you shared these. Love the cloche over the vase - how charming. Sounds like crafting and decorating run in your family. :)

Karin said...

I love the crow! I decorated a window with Martha Stewart crow cut-outs for Halloween.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Looks great! It is nice to have things that were made by someone special.
I had to use photos from last year also. :)

Tamera said...

I have that acorn! So pretty...and, yes, it's so handy to take photos and have them for reference:)
Love the pumpkins under the cloche...everything is so cute!

Love your decorating from the past. I am wondering if you have a way of organizing your pictures - I guess I sort of have a plan but still have difficulty locating pic sometimes. You seem so organized I just knew you would have a better way of it than me!

Love your silver pretties from your Mom! How sweet to send you little boxes now and again!

Even if the pictures are from years past, they are still very lovely and inspiring. Thanks for reposting them



Love it and it makes it special that your Dad made the crow (;

I never cease to be amazed at how timeless our decorating is in our homes. Yours follows that theory! The crow is awesome! Have a great week.

Dear Miss Cindy,

Thank you for sharing some of the old post photos. I have been a relatively new-comer... and haven't had the opportunity to visit a lot of your "older" posts and photos. However, I must say that I'm intrigued about your color scheme changes from then until the present. Very interesting.

I wanted to know how things are coming along with Lauren's room? Do you have any "tasty temptation" photos to whet the appetite? I am so looking forward to seeing the end product. Hope all is going well.

Very timely post for me. I have been working at getting my home decorated for fall all day. Loved your boot and crow, but I don't have anything like those. I do have cloches though and loved the way you filled the footed bowl (can't think what they are called at the moment) and covered with a cloche. I'm off to find something similar. Have just the place for it. You always inspire me. Thanks

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

I just adore that rusty acorn. How fun to look back and see how things have changed.

Lynn said...

This is one picture I had not seen. It's beautiful as always. Love the boots with the pumpkins. Your dad makes such wonderful treasures. Makes me miss my dad even more when you show a treasure your dad made for you.


Nany said...

Oh Cindy... as always.. you inspired me so much... here in Puerto Rico I only see white pumpkins at Walgreens.. your boots and crow are sensational....

Hello Cindy, a very georgous fall decoration!!! It´s so good you found those pictures and I agree with you that blogging helps us so much when we want to remember how we did it in the past. Great.

Hi Cindy, Love that boot! I sold a pair last year and have regretted it ever since. I won't let the next pair go :) Your Fall decorating is wonderful.

I finished my daughter's dresser. I added wooden appliques, glass knobs and white paint. It looks great! Thanks for the inspiration. FYI ~ I have before and after pics on my blog. Karen at Ciderantiques
