An Investment Piece: The Department Store Cabinet

For months, Georgia had been hunting a large, vintage library card catalog to place in her new home office/craft space. She could never find the perfect piece (for the right price!) like the one below. Apparently, vintage library card cabinets are a hot item in the antique/resale market!

As we were shopping at the Flowery Branch Antique Mall, we spotted this wonderful cabinet from KJax Designs. Not quite a vintage library card catalog but still had the small design elements.

Georgia’s Classic Country Fall Porch

Georgia lives in the beautiful countryside near the North Georgia mountains and her design aesthetic leans more toward traditional and updated country. Over the weekend, we finalized Georgia’s Classic Country Porch. Georgia’s home contains blue and pale yellow tones throughout and we wanted to showcase the same design elements in her front entry way. Decorating for Fall doesn’t have to always be the rich, earth tones but slightly more muted tones that are already in your home and garden. For Georgia’s porch, we re-purposed items that we already had on hand and simply bought a few mums and colorful plants. Georgia spent a total of $10 to makeover her porch for Fall.

For the left side of the porch, we hung Georgia’s new sign from Painted Expressions. Underneath the monogram, we placed her antique bench and layered a blue and yellow plaid blanket with yellow pillows. A demijohn filled a few golden rods, a red mum and a pumpkin round out this vignette.

Across the porch, we added Georgia’s Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue table with a few pumpkins, mums and a colorful Croton houseplant.

For the front door, we wanted something simple and whimsical. (This project would be wonderful with dried flowers!). We picked a bunch of orange Cosmos from Georgia’s garden and hung with white burlap.

Ahhh . . . it’s finally Fall at Georgia’s place! The front porch is now a welcoming spot for friends and family visiting the country.

Traditional Fall Mantel

In keeping with our Fall crafts and decorating, here is our take on a traditional Fall mantel. A simple, understated vignette with pumpkins, a vintage window, our favorite life saying, a gorgeous photograph of Dick’s Creek (GA) during the fall and a dried floral arrangement. This weekend, we are working on Georgia’s new Fall porch.

{DIY} No Sew Pumpkin Burlap Runner

Sunday marks the first day of Fall and the temperatures in Georgia are certainly reflecting the changing seasons. Fall in the North Georgia mountain can be simply breathtaking. To prepare for the cooler temperatures and shifting colors, we’re stashing away our bright, summer inspired accessories for pieces with more earthy, warm accents. Think rich mocha, pumpkin spiced lattes, deep forest green and glowing ember. Today, we wanted to share a project for those crafters who still haven’t mastered (or are intimated by) the sewing machine, our No Sew Pumpkin Burlap Runner.
