Hello friends! Hope your day is going well and is as pretty and sunny as it is here in my neck of the woods. Over the weekend I was able to put the finishing touches on our fall cottage kitchen. This morning, with the sun shinning bright, I was able to take some photos to share with you all today.
You might not know this about me, but I love changing things up at the Charmer. Mr. C kids me that furniture doesn’t stay in one place to long. Pieces of furniture also come and go! Right now I have 4 dinning room sets, I’m using, 1 in the dungeon, 1 in the garage and one is in my craft room.
The hutch in the craft room had two end cabinets that I moved into the corners of the kitchen. I didn’t paint because I don’t know what/if I’ll be doing with them.
The corner shelf that was here before that has been moved to the staircase landing.
Both wood corner cabinets were filled with fall treasures. The shelves aren’t very deep and the shelf itself is curved in the front, so it limits what I could put on them.
Each made a nice fall corner vignette. In the corner, by the floor is a pink squash sitting on top of a vintage milk stool. I love this stool so much, in the garden, sitting down painting, taking low photos and so much more.
I just found the brown transferware pitcher when I was at the SOTF event at Potato Creek. I love roosters, and salt and pepper sets, and have at least 5 of them…they help to provide a connection with nature when I look at them.
A pumpkin, and a oh so cute owl plate in the background with a vintage rooster dish.
On top of each cabinet is a fern that were pulled inside before the soft frosts hit. Their small ferns, don’t get much bigger than you see here, I bought them at the Farmer’s Market this past summer.
See how close the top of the cabinet to the wall sconce? That’s why I don’t know if they will work, but since I only paid $7 a piece its OK if they don’t work out.
Above the window, in between the wood corner cabinet is a thrift store oil painting…I can’t tell you how many great oil paintings I’ve found at thrift stores and I just love them. They’re are a great way to add color to a room for a very reasonable price.
On top of the shelf are several of my white ironstone pitchers, and added some dried goldenrod to the pitchers on the ends. I think the color of the fall oil painting bounces against the white ironstone.
I made a fall wicker basket and hung on the window.. and made a fall banner. I cut strips of varying lengths and knotted them over burlap twine. The banner will do double duty for Christmas, I’ll just replace the orange strips with red ones. I love items I can get double duty out of.
I love my kitchen, but my favorite place in the Charmer is sitting in the kitchen nook area. All the windows face my gardens and pond area. The window on the right faces the back porch. I love spending time here.
I created a vignette on the table, and love the windmill on a plate, and a fall tea cup. I really don’t like vignettes on our kitchen table, I like it to be clear and uncluttered, which never seems to happen?
A pair of vintage rooster salt and pepper set was added for color, and tucked inside the tool box are a few more ferns.
Sure hope you enjoyed see my favorite area at the Charmer, looking good in her fall decor!
