~Vignettes for Autumn~



I wanted a fun wreath on the front door of the condo, before family arrives for the holiday weekend.

This is a faux greenery wreath with two leaf stems, a grass stem, with sunflower and a scarecrow attached.  Rather than use glue, I wove the pieces through the wreath.  Within 5 minutes, the wreath was ready and on the door.


I purchased the materials for the wreath at Evergreen, Osage Beach Missouri, Wednesday. 

Jason has outdone himself with his selection of Autumn silks and accessories, this year.  If you plan to be in Osage Beach this holiday weekend or another time during the Fall season, you might want to stop by Evergreen Mfg.


Artie stopped by the Back Porch and asked me to share these vignettes, from my August 29th Metamorphosis Monday post, for Vignette Friday.

The fireplace screen is made of three separate iron panels, fitted together and secured with black zip ties.  I found the panels at Welcome Home several years ago.




A breakfast room vignette.


This photo, of a hearth room mantel vignette, was featured in a 2007 post, at Back Porch Musings. 

The hand carved swan was purchased at a shop on South Main Street, Historic Saint Charles Missouri. 

The, print above the swan, is a John Pils illustration of South Main Street.  To see more about the artist click HERE.

What a cute wreath, Pat! Also, that was a very clever idea about creating a fireplace screen!

Have a great time at the lake this holiday weekend. We're supposed to have lots of rain today, but the rest of the weekend should be great!

Your wreath is very cute. I also love the table centerpiece. I would love to make one like that. I might need to head over to Michael's and Pier One today.

Hi Dear Pat! Oh, your wreath is adorable! Love the little added touch of the scare crow! :)
Oh, I love your beautiful vignettes and I didn't realize you had made the fireplace screen. Every time I see your positioned like that, I'm thinking I'm going to turn our around with the sides out facing the room. I like that look!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Your wreath is terrific, I'm going to give weaving the stems in a try! It makes it easier to change with the season, I'll bet.

All of your vignettes are so pretty! I din't know Artie was having this party. I'll have to check out more for inspiration. This is such a great time to bring on the fall things!!

Have a great holiday weekend, Pat! :-)

It already says fall at your place! I've got to get to digging through that garage and get my gear out for autumn.

Tommie Jo said...

I think everyone is ready for Autumn after this long hot summer! This gives plenty of inspiration!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I don't know which I love more, your photography skills or your design skills...very pretty things!

Sandi McBride said...

They're all so beautiful, Pat and yes some are familiar, but you have truly outdone yourself! I can hardly believe that we are coming to an end of another summer, yet here it is winding down.

Pat, everything is just beautiful as always! Your mantle is lovely!

Marlis said...

Beautiful. I love your style.. I so have to copy that wreath.. well no, i so have to make a wreath! Thanks for the fall welcome.

Colleen said...

I am so happy to see someone else decorating for Fall. I live in North Louisiana and it is certainly still very warm but Fall is my #1 favorite season and I adore decorating for it. I always tell my family that if I get the pumpkins and scarecrows out, the cool weather will soon follow!

Natasha said...

I wish we had a fireplace so I could do gorgeous things like this-what lovely ideas!

Best wishes,

AntiqueChase said...

Your photos never disappoint! Fab!

Wow only 5 minutes to make that great wreath - that is hard to believe. I really like the little Scarecrow!! Pretty shots too especially of the trencher with all of its colorful contents! W.C.C.

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Hi Pat, What a darling wreath to greet everyone this w/k. I believe some of the family members are headed to Laurie this w/k. Even with the cooler temps I know they'll have a ball. My daughters girlfriend shops at Evergreens all the time. Looking forward to seeing his new merchandise... Have a super w/k. hugs ~lynne~

Bill said...

So many beautiful images -- breathtaking as always, Pat! You're definitely ready for fall. The breakfast room looks like something from a high-end shelter magazine, and the wreath you made is fantastic! You're truly a gifted artist, and I noticed you have over 1000 followers now. Contratulations! Obviously lots of people appreciate the beauty of your artistry!

Have a great weekend!

Sandra said...

Wonderful fall decor and beautiful fall mantel.

The Tablescaper said...

Great post and great ideas, but I'm gasping over your mantel and the twisting vine. It's magnificent.

Hope to see you at Seasonal Sundays.
