Happy Thanksgiving!

Did you know that Adam Sandler was raised in my beautiful state of New Hampshire? There is something about him that just makes me smile.

Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Fall Mantel 2011

 The fall season has started with an early snow storm leaving us with no power for a couple of days, which meant time to dress my mantel.
 A couple of old printers drawers make up the backdrop for my Fall themed vignette.
 One of my favorite vintage scales came in handy to add some height to this pumpkin.
 My pumpkins started out burnt orange but I wanted a more subtle look so, I painted them in shades of whites, creams and grays.
 I tucked some pussy willows into a galvanized pitcher and added a rusty old license plate and a vintage pulley.
 I can see a farmer from 'days gone by' using these items while harvesting his Autumn bounty.
 Another love of mine - vintage hardware, chippy paint and typography!
 Fall will be over before we know it, but I am enjoying it for the short time that it is here.

Linking up to the following parties:
