feathering my booth for the fall...

Hello everyone ~ I hope your week is off to a great start! I had a nice start to my week as I spent most of yesterday morning at the shop, tidying up my booth as well as rearranging it a bit. I brought in a fabulous new piece as well as adding some items for the fall and Halloween. I was in bright and early and while the lighting was not the best (heck, the photographer is not the best) I thought I would share with you some new vignettes. I have been seeing items for Halloween out since August so I thought it was time to feather my booth for the fall...I have been trying to warm up my space for the fall by keeping some furniture as found and not painting it white. I also have been hunting for some old rusting and industrial looking treasures to add as well. I actually found one yesterday on my way home but I think it is a keeper! Since my booth is totally shabby I thought I should stay pretty neutral when it came to adding in Halloween. Let's take a closer look... I knew I could use these wonderful old books I found yard saleing to give my display some height and the colors are just perfect... How fabulous are these old candle holders... I am loving the vintage flinch card packages too ~ the numbers go to 15 but I display unlucky 13! I also added tags which I found on Etsy to just about every item. I filled a little apothecary jar with black, cream and orange buttons and added a tag... I also filled some old canning jars and tagged them too...
I found the cute Halloween Bingo cards on Etsy and the champagne corks...well...let's just say I totally enjoyed my summer (thanks girls)!! Moving on ~ I filled a garden pot left over from the shop porch (which has a wonderful new look for the fall) with some vintage spoons and thought they might be good spell stirrers...I mixed in some vintage mushroom Pyrex bowls with some old metal and silver trays and made some more letter packets... I made another small display ~ I picked up those sweet vintage inspired postcards on Etsy too... I love the color of the silent butler ~ I found this at one of my favorite thrift shops for a song... Of course this old black clock fits in perfectly... I had fun thrifting for pieces for these displays so I am linking up with Linda over at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday. I took a few shabby pieces home to make room for all this and thought I would put them in my Etsy Shop and link up with Stefanie over at Rose Petals and Rust for her Tuesday Treasures...
I am happy to say the sweet little heart dish sold already! Well, thanks for stopping by today,
I know I mentioned that I put a fabulous new piece in my booth too but I am saving that for tomorrow. Stay tuned...
