As each Season changes On Crooked Creek ~
I find it takes me longer than I anticipate to accomplish switching out the decor. Finally~ the Traditional China Cabinet is completed with an Autumnal Header. . . just in time to welcome the first day of Fall 2011.
I adore this French Country themed willow basket. It appears to have been done in the Annie Sloan fashion that I'm seeing on Blog Land posts. It's soft creamy whites are right in keeping with my softer side of Autumn decor. You'll also find some soft tans with an overcasting of subtle hued grays.
Mimicking Nature's turning leaves are these soft~to~the~touch, soft hued, leaf and acorn picks. Amber oranges, caramelized rusts, honey golds, and sage greens are all combined and bring softness to the edges of the cabinet. Purchased last year @ Roadhouse Antiques.
A pair of quail continue the softer side of Autumn with their creamy whites, honey golds and tans. One is placed atop a book to give a sense of flow across the header.
I adore the amber orange gourd with it's tan glazing . . . giving a vintage effect! Another find @ Roadhouse Antiques from last year.
Finishing off my Autumnal Header are my green handled, glazed pottery jars and more of the leaf and acorn picks. Secretly, I filled the large jar with caramelized rust mums. The small jar held creamy white mums. I felt the artistry of the pottery was smothered...so~o~o, I removed them. I prefer the arts 'd objects look!
On Crooked Creek, I could get use to this softer side of Autumn decor. It's easy on the budget, easy on the eyes. . . and so easy to design!
From top~to~bottom. . . the softer side of Autumn is complete with the addition of the Autumnal Header.
Softly Welcoming Fall 2011!
Until next time. . .
