My inspiration for this post is the “Roomspiration” going on at 12 blogs for the next 12 days. The first event/party is “Abode Love” entryways.
I may be old fashioned but I love a foyer. Some may view it as wasted space but it really is an introduction of your home and who you are. It is the first place I start to decorate each holiday and then I move to other rooms. I spread seasonal decorations just about everywhere. It’s like a sickness…but I don’t think I want to be cured!
I am on a HUGE burlap kick, so, of course, the library table has burlap. I purchased it in large rolls and wish I had bought more!
And still more burlap! I found these burlap covered fruit at Marshall’s. Loving the simple look of the burlap in the white bowl.
You’ve seen my white glass box before. I’m still not satisfied with it and may tweak it a little more.
The green leaf dish is new…a find at Marshalls. Hmm, that was a lot fuller with Candy Corn when I fixed it. Oh Mr. Dumpling?
The entry was changed up this year with the purchase of an antique cabinet. I like the cabinet but it’s not working for me as I hoped. However, it is all decked for Fall as well. I am just loving white pumpkins and I have for years. Some of these I’ve had a long time and a few things are new.
Did you notice the large plant in the foyer? I have kept it alive for well over a year. It was sent when Mr. Dumpling’s father passed and I have managed to keep it healthy and growing! This is a major accomplishment for me. Plants always get those brown tips when left in my care.
We purchased the antique oak Pier mirror in Canton, TX many years ago. I designed a special place for it in the foyer. It was originally from an old hotel in Kansas City. Ladies needed these mirrors to make sure their skirts were long enough. It’s one of my favorite pieces we have. I’ve seen OnlySon and best friend BigH primp in front of this mirror before heading out for a night out with the girls. Don’t think for one moment that boys don’t do this!
Still a few things to do but that’s basically it for now. Tomorrow…I will belatedly join the Living Room party “View Along the Way”. Come back!
