Handcrafted Halloween Dollhouse

As some of you know, I have a space in an Antique Mall in Virginia called the Blue Crow

I was there last week, restocking my booth and saw these....

There is a lady that works there named Connie.
She makes these fantastic Halloween Dollhouses.  
The attention to detail is quite amazing.  
They are intricate and very well thought out. 
I just loved them.

One of My Favorite Furniture Finds

This is one of my all time favorite furniture finds
It stands in my kitchen and is just as I found it. 
I love the multiple layers of original chippy paint.

All I did was clear-coat it to preserve it.

 Some people would not like it so distressed but that's why
I love it
The interesting places it has been and stories it would tell
I like the idea that I rescued it and now it stands 
proudly in service, once again

Distinctly Different Fall Decor

Decor for Fall need not be your typical Pumpkins and Leaves

I found these arrows at a sale.  
They reminded me of fall when displayed in the crock.

 Some vintage paint brushes displayed in an old terracotta flower pot pushed me to add other mismatched items to accompany it.
Somehow it all works together...It's looking like fall.
