First up is this cool metal tin picnic basket to add to my collection, which is now just this shy of enough. Maybe. Or not.
Next this gargantuan long chicken feeder. I may have underestimated how long this baby was. I had ideas of putting it on my dining room table all full of small pumpkins and gourds and fall leaves and such. Umm, no. It goes from one end to the other and looks pretty stupid. Gonna have to rethink this one. Any thoughts?
Last I got a metal wheel with spokes thing (what the heck are those called?) My mom has one hanging on her wall with old pictures and stuff clipped to it and it looks cool. It is currently still buried in the garage with the rest of the show leftovers and I haven't found the energy to dig it out. But ya catch my drift.
This weekend my mom and I hit up a few favorite haunts and found some goodies.
The last thing I got actually came in the mail. I ordered these two vintage Halloween die cuts from Magpie Ethel (thanks Laurie!) and they were just the thing to make me want to get out my Halloween decorations!
But looking how cute they look all mixed in with the others
This is only about 1/3 of the die cuts I have, but I only put up a few this year, and I decided to frame some...ooh fancy!
Since I'm showing off the homestead I gotta share my mantle. I never do scary halloween (I used to when the kids were little, even turned my whole garage into a haunted house one year. Yes, it was awesome) but this year I did all vintage in the front room and decided to go a little creepier in the family room.
In other news I went to the pumpkin patch today and Im pretty sure I'm hear cider donuts and orange cream soda calling my name. Till next time...
Looking might festive and thanks for the shout out. The die cuts look right at home! I am hoping to hit the pumpkin patch this week...I know that cider donuts and fresh pressed apple cider will be calling my name! A great fall tradition!ReplyDelete
Maybe pinterest has an idea for a huge chicken feeder? I always think those industrial things are a good idea until I get them in my house, hmmmm.ReplyDelete
My pumpkin patch is the bin at Aldi. :) $2.26 for the biggest pumpkins! We are going tot eh apple orchard this week if the rain EVER ends. I can't believe you found a metal picnic basket at The Junk ranch. I have still never found one of those out junking. I have some that a thoughtful person gifted me. I thin they are hard to find around here! Love you Halloween decor. Not sure mine will see the light of day this year. But, I am thinking I NEED to see it!ReplyDelete
