Finally Fall!

It is finally Fall! We had rain and now cooler temperatures too. The light is just dirfferent -have you noticed it too. I love it and the energy that comes from a new season. So we made our way back up to Monticello to add some merchandise to walls and shelves that had sold. I even had friends texting me pictures of empty spaces (thanks Janet and hope you found some cool treasures). I added a collection of sweet 1940's samplers, a large wicker basket that I hung on the wall and a well built wicker chair with a new cushion. So the Fall Show ends on Sunday and it has been a good one - we sold alot of furniture too. We will load up what is left and back into the warehouse in Cottage Grove it will go. Then I will load up Halloween and change out the front display that you see here. So watch for that and enjoy the beginning of Fall. Think I will go make some squash soup..... Mary

White pumpkins

 I love white pumpkins. I have nothing against the traditional orange ones but the white ones just send me. We had them last year too but this year the grower grew a few different sizes besides the big ones. What fun to decorate with. And I am not the only one who likes them because Monticello just called me and six hours into the show we have sold out of the big ones! So if you want a big one you will have to give me a day to get them up to Portland. 
 Our booth at Monticello has been taken over by cows, pigs and sheep too.

 A wonderful wooden trough to pile with pumpkins.
So come see what the fuss is about. I am so ready for fall... Mary

Monticello Fall Show

 Why I LOVE my Sprinter! It holds so much and makes my job so much easier. So from this pile came this fall display=

 The dresser is so wonderful. It is grain painted to look like pine and has hand carved wooden handles!  One of a kind.
 The little 2 1/2" mason jars can be place settings with water and a fresh flower. They also slip over little white lights! How cute are they!
 Willow trays that are 36" or 60" to pile with fall pumpkins and berries!
 We have every color and shape of pumpkin from a local grower.
The Fall Show at Monticello kicked off at 8:00 am and runs through September 28. Go see all the displays and get your home ready for fall. The dealers add merchandise daily. I am taking two more boxes up on Saturday myself. So get up to Portland for a day of shopping. Maybe I will see you there... Mary
