New Fun Fall Accessories



A white ceramic pumpkin.
A handful of feathers.
Two wood slabs.



These are my new arrivals from Oriental Trading for whom I am a brand ambassador. 



I played with stacking and arranging these new goodies when they arrived. When I ordered them I proposed a fun fall table setting...and I will get to that. But today, I am sharing the objects. 

The ideas just begin whirling in my mind...other than a table setting. 


I can see wall art with a slab of wood and these pheasant feathers.

I have wanted to have some feathers for my fall decorating since last year when I saw another blogger decorate with them.



This ceramic pumpkin is gorgeous and I love the ironstone flavor that it has. 



These wood slabs are a bit more rustic than my usual decorating accessories...but for fall, they will be so much fun to play with for my vignettes. 



For fun...I tried this little vignette on an antique cherry table. 

I just wanted to see how it worked. 

It is not yet fall...but I am gearing up to show you some ideas to try. :-)



These items will be appearing around the house so look to see them used together and separately. 





A close-up of the pretty pumpkin.


The shutterbug in me is having fun playing with ways to style the pheasant feathers. 


I shop for decor accessories much like I shop for clothing/accessories. 

I want to be able to use what I buy in more than one way. I want to be able to mix, match, and use my accessories in more than one way. You get more bang for your dollar that way! :-)

    1. Thanks Kristine. The white pumpkin has an ironstone sort of look...so it mixes nicely with things I have.

  8. I love that white pumpkin. Anxious to see what you are going to do with the feathers. I collected ceramic pumpkins for several years getting them on sale after the holidays. The orange did not go well here, so naturally, I had to buy more in white and green colors. Can't wait for cooler weather.
