Wonderful time

What a beautiful week we've had, perfect 80's weather, the leaves are staring to turn yellow and the bushes in the mountains are turning red.
There is a time in October when the mountains look completely red, so beautiful.




















 Hope you enjoyed these pictures of France in autumn.
Until next time.

Fall tour

Fall is officially here and one of the places that I love to decorate is my entrance aka "library"
The table where we sit to read books and do homework

Dear husband made this ladder shelf a long time ago, it used to be burgundy, but I started painting everything black, poor shelf.

Some of my silver plate items

Lots of patina on this tea set

I like this pair of guys



I like white pumpkins, but this is the only white I have.

This column needs a makeover badly







Niche by the front door

Yes, I have a mailbox inside the house, it's so french




I made this sign our of a fan blade


And last but not least, my scaredy cat.

I still have to finish decorating outside, will come back whith a tour of the living room, kitchen and front porch.

Fancy witch's boots

Today I want to show you some altered bottles that sell very well for me, adorned with coffee stained muslin, old earrings...


these are wine bottles that I filled with some potpourri fragranced with orange and cranberry oil

Some sheet music and the graphics from The Graphics Fairy

More graphics inside and some wheat sprigs.  They have been good sellers, so probably I will be making more pretty soon.

Now on to my witchy side.... I love those fabric witch boots that you see all over in magazines and stores in the fall and Halloween season


I had to make my own, these are the first ever made by me (insert proud face right here) I made two.

I didn't want them too plain so.... here comes lace, what witch doesn't like lace....

....or crystals....

...fabric rosettes and jewelry?



I decided to call them fancy witch's boots

Are you working on any projects for Halloween yet?

Fall is getting closer

The morning breeze is cooler since September first, is actually cold.
This morning decided to have breakfast outside and enjoy the last days of summer


We don't need air conditioner anymore, the highest temperatures have been in the upper 70's

Can you believe I still have lavender blooming? I don't know what's going on but I like it!
 

Wishing everybody a great day!

Bathroom accessories


I've been busy, not much to show today, just some pictures of accessories in my white bathroom.



This is for a door not for a bathroom wall, but I thought this was a good idea to hang towels (I got rid of all the ugly gold towel bars)




I love this crown, got it for $1.99, attached it to a wood plaque and voila, another accessory to hang towels from.



And last but not least, I made this out of a wooden plaque $1.00 and a free curtain tie back which was gold and painted white.

Somebody mentioned before that my blog should be named "design on a dime"  I think she was right.

The rest of the bathroom still needs work, will post pictures once it's done, hopefully soon.
