The Rural Society sale in Mt. Vernon yielded me a few nice finds over the weekend, so I used some of them to put together another fall display.
I used the largest of my three wooden nesting trays to display two of my wrapped wine bottle purchases from the sale. Then I just added in some small items to fill in.
I’m glad that the label is still intact on this jug- it’s a Spanish wine imported by a distributor up in Cleveland. I still can’t believe that I found this demi-john at such a reasonable price. They sell for much more in the shops.
A small wrapped bottle was tucked into the corner under a wooden bowl of stuffed ornaments.
I like these stuffed fabric pillow ornaments because they remind me of things that I should do and things for which I should be thankful.
I’ve been told that I use some unusual and unorthodox items in my vignettes. I guess this one is no different, then. This is an old tin funnel that was a yard sale find earlier in the season.
Tucked in among the dried apples, nuts, artichokes, and pomegranates is this little rolled rosewood pumpkin. Some of you may remember that it was a find at the Country Living show last year.
A bundle of wheat certainly says, “fall.”
The husband is no stranger to finding treasures. He found the wine basket shown above. It came complete with a cutting board and a wine bottle opener, but we added in everything else necessary for enjoying a glass of wine. He thinks we should carry it down to the fire-pit and enjoy it tonight. Hah! Doesn’t he know that the wind is blowing and howling and the rain is coming down in sheets?! I think we’ll be staying in. Nothing wrong with sitting in front of the television with some vino, is there?
Cheese, crackers, wine, and even a healthy apple all make for a great pre-game snack if we were to take this to a tailgate party.
I think what caught his eye when he saw the basket was this vintage Ohio State booster button pinned to the side of it. The Bucks are definitely having a an “off-season” ( to say the least!), but the husband is a fan all the same.
