Quick Post & Reminder

Hi everyone.
I have added a little Fall to our kitchen island using my vintage dough bowl and other things I had stored away.


The Pottery Barn lanterns were purchased  last year when they were reduced by 70%.   I didn’t care for the black bottom so I just dry brushed them with gray craft paint. I used them this summer filled with seashells and the paint effect reminds me of driftwood.
The Open House Party will start this evening and I have another beautiful home to share.
I hope you will link up all the beautiful Fall decor I am seeing around blogland and any projects, recipes, great buys, ect. that you would like to share.
I have gotten some great reviews from those of you that have tried the homemade chalky paint and I would love to see your projects at the Open House Party.
Thanks for visiting and all the sweet notes you leave.  I truly appreciate each of you!

  1. So stunning Sherry…love the idea of the paint for those lanterns…thanks for the idea:) Also thanks for the tip on the Highlands area…I kne about it, but with old age I had forgotten…I've been checking it out:) If you know of any great (cheap…you know me…thrifty is my middle name)places for antiques and vintage items for sale in that area, I would love to hear about them…thanks so much.


  2. How fun, I am all set for tonight. I had to laugh about your doughbowl. Mine has been packed away in the garage and I just pulled it out also. Great minds. lol I love your vignettes, the doughbowl is gorgeous and the lanterns are fabulous also. See you tonight. Hugs, Marty

  3. Sherry, Your dough bowl looks so welcoming and works beautifully with your counter top.
    Love, love your lanterns. I was thinking of dry brushing mine as they are a bit too dark for my liking. Thanks for the tip and thanks for the inspiration to do some Fall decorating.

  4. Beautiful touches for a beautiful kitchen.
    Alas…I don't put much on our eating bar as we use it as….well…for eating. :))
    hugs, bj
