Freshen up Fall!

The big hutch sold so time to freshen up that wall. a butcher block, a wicker wing back chair, a gold mirror and a Victorian Elk painting. Fresh! 

Under the elk is a basket of white pumpkins and antlers. Love the blend of neutral colors. 

A butter crock attributed to Red Wing Pottery - for you collectors. A real Amish mens hat from Intercouse, Pennsylvania. 

I love stacking pumpkins even though it is harder than it looks! 

A beautiful, original oil painting of a bugling elk. Don't think it will last long... So enjoy Fall
wherever you are. It is a great season of colors, smells and foods!

Fall is in the air!

Fall is right on time for me and my new display at Monticello Antiques In Portland, Or.  The Fall show opens tomorrow (September 2nd)  and we are ready Thank you Sara for your help and beautiful displays... 

Jadite stops you in your tracks- the color and the childhood memories. This is actually my daughter Sara's collection.
She has kept a little that she uses and the rest is up for sale. The primitive hutch is unusual and lovely. The crown molding is all done by hand with keyhole cutouts.  It is only $395 too. 

Mums are the fall flower. Put them in a double wash stand with wonderful graphics and you have a display!

I loved this giclee painting of hollyhocks. It started the whole display. The cupola with brass weathervane pulls it together- put it on your front porch, in your living room or on top of your house! 

A wonderful old barn door (white on one side and weathered gray on the other) is $175.
The scale is also a clock. The cow is a peaceful reminder of all our animals on the farm. 

A fall garden cart that holds Sedum Neon and squirrels.

A rake head of drying herbs and crabapples. Fall is time to put up food.

So get down to Montiello Antique Marketplace to see all the Fall displays. I think the vendors have done a great job with many unusual displays. Come celebrate my favorite season. See you there...
