A Fall Dining Room

I bought these old lanterns months and months ago at a big yard sale for $3 a piece.  I was dying to use them with something, and fall seemed like the perfect time. But, of course . . . it's the pumpkins and bits of burlap that really make it scream FALL.

  4. So funny--I completely had a grapevine wreath hanging on my front door with a sash of burlap but after seeing yours I added the bow, b/c it was too cute! :) Also, I took out the lantern you gave us for a wedding gift and tried putting pumpkins in it last week, but they wouldn't fit through the hole...sad! So now, its just on the front porch for decor!! LOVE it!

  5. Oh! That is sad! Well, maybe you could try some other things . . . maybe things from the yard?

  18. Hi there! I love the pictures of your house! It's do inspiring! I am wondering where you found your trestle table? And I love how you play with color- I'm currently deciding on color for my kitchen and breakfast nook, what color would you suggest for medium- dark stained kitchen cabinets- I have the worst time deciding- I'm thinking maybe an aqua!?
    Would live your help,
    Thanks
