The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

FALL Programming???

To say that "Mr. Ed" and I have been a mite disappointed in the television FALL Programming would be an understatement. To top it off, our local cable channel has now changed the TV Guide, as well! Annoying to set and continually flip through the channels, I have resorted to reading through the evening hours!



So~o~o. . .
that being said,
I watch the Entertainment Center more than view the television.



This past week,
On Crooked Creek, we changed the FALL Programming
to a Nature inspired look using deer sheds and pine cones!!!


"Mr. Ed" was all to obliging
to bring the box of deer sheds from the lower living area
to our Living Room for selection!


Camouflaged discretely behind the gilded birds
is a full fledged deer rack!
"Mr. Ed's" 2009 trophy!



As you can see,
we tucked them beneath the magnolia leaves,
then nestled pine cones around for a natural effect.



Nature subtly defined atop the Entertainment Center.


Now...
the most challenging space. . .
those stereo speakers!!!


With a change in strategy,
this time I placed faux magnolia greenery swags top each speaker.



I adore my glass, crackle pumpkins!!!
Their texture and hue were the main element
in this open shelf vignette!



Adding the concrete planter,
filled with pine cones,
brought in the rustic natural elements.


A drought ridden Summer
has left the Prairie's Autumnal hues somewhat soft and subdued.
I chose decor elements with those same hues to fill the cabinets.


The bottom shelf of this cabinet
holds "Mr. Ed's" newest squirrel figurine from our
Annual Trout Fishing Trip.



This sweetie appears to be overwhelmed with JOY
as he scurries to take his bounty home!



Pumpkins and a Sunflower cloche
fill the opposite side of the Entertainment Center.


I kept the open shelving at the bottom
free of books. Placing, instead, my green pottery jars
and one of "Mr. Ed's" deer sheds for his viewing pleasure!


 
The opposite side holds another furry creature find
from this Fall. Placed atop a creamy ivory leaf plate
he, too, is overJOYed with his bountiful find!
 


Regardless of the FALL Programming,
On Crooked Creek's Entertainment Center
will provide Nature inspired views for our pleasure!!!





Until next time. . .
