Autumn Sideboard

This is a repost 
to join the 
Autumn Decor Party

I hope you enjoy!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Boy, am I busy around here!
Kim, my oldest daughter, and I are working 
on a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT !
In the meantime Thanksgiving 
is fast approaching. 
 I have been doing a little decorating here and there.
This is the sideboard that sits in my kitchen's bay window. 

 This darling rooster plate was a gift from our sweet blogger friend Babs of Upstairs Downstairs. I have enjoyed her gracious giveaway gifts. She really started a rooster thing around here. Love the rooster apron! You will see how bad the rooster fetish got, later.
These adorable little pots have poured candles inside. They are painted with chalkboard paint with jute trim. They were a lovely giveaway gift from that creative powerhouse Dee over at A Lapin LifeI have enjoyed these candles and I have actually used the chalk to write little messages on them.
Everything in this vignette was previous decor except the straw turkey. He followed me home from Hancock Fabrics. The tall glass cylindars are normally used as candle holders about the house. This time they are filled with tiny pine cones and faux crab apples, topped off with natural colored candles. 
The container for the arrangement came from Michael's last year. I can't remember where I got the raffia pumpkins, twas so long ago. 
I have several of the strange little pumpkins in front of Tom. I have been pulling at them in an attempt to determine the material. I think they are wrapped corn husks tied in some manner and trimmed to create the pumpkin. 
Anyhoo, I love them! 
A couple of long shots of the sideboard. This is a recent acquisition. Some may remember an old dresser I was using and had intended to refinish. When we found this beauty made of Tiger Maple I was gaga and sold! 
I gave the dresser to Hollie, my youngest daughter. You may remember the old scale, now on the floor. I posted about it at Granny Weighs In.
Just thought I would throw this one in. I think I posted it somewhere else. Rosemary from the garden in a thrifted vase that I posted about earlier. Smells so good in the kitchen. Canned peaches from my friend Marian. Remember her Beautyberry? 
By the way, I installed all the tile you see here, and I designed AND installed the rope trim you see on the bottom of the cabinets (preblog days). 
Here, take another look!!
Professionals installed the quartz counter tops, first year the product was on the market. Love, Love, Love it. Ten years earlier, I bet I could have done the installation!
Enough of the "BS".  I sure hope you enjoyed another glimpse of the kitchen. Please leave one of your sweet comments and visit my party friends listed below.

I noticed the grain on that sideboard first thing! It is beautiful.

I took a good look at your turkey and fell in love. I love his tail feathers.

Thanks for joining the party and I will be looking forward to the big announcement.

Your kitchen looks wonderful and the fall display is so pretty on your new sideboard. How cute to put pumpkins in the chalkboard pots. I'm so glad you’re enjoying them. :-)

I adore the smell of fresh Rosemary and cook with it all the time.

You’re quite handy as the trim and tile look like a pro did it.

Thanks for your sweet post about me.

Dee

Everything looks beautiful! I am sooooo far behind on decorating :( i'm lucky to dress myself in the mornings lately! Lol....I will tell you that those peaches wouldn't last 1 second out on the counter at my house! It would be an empty jar before I could even get a picture snapped lol

Beautiful side board! You did a great job!

Babs said...

OMGosh Ginger!! Your sideboard is awesome. If I had seen it the same time you did, I'd have had to "rassel" you for it. :)
You've decorated it beautifully too. Just perfect for Thanksgiving.

Your new sideboard is to die for! The vignette is pretty sweet, too.

Sneaky turkey - following you home like that. He is so stinkin' cute! Lucky you to have a bay window in your kitchen. Your sideboard is a beautiful piece and the arrangement is lovely. I really like the way you mixed pinecones with the faux crabapples. You are one brave lady in my book to tackle a backsplash job!

Coloradolady said...

Beautiful sideboard and what lovely pieces you have. Happy VTT!

Queenie said...

Your sideboard looks so pretty...with all the special little details...the plates mixed in with the cute turkey ....Thanksgiving will be here before we know it...I can hardlly wait :)
