The one with the fall antique "assemblage"...

Hi Everyone!

We are having a beautiful cool and crisp fall day here today.  I hope you are enjoying some nice fall weather, too.  I love fall decorating, and recently, I put together this little display:

I lined parts of an antique cigar box with photo copies of old letters and photos.  I added a few autumn colored antique bits and pieces and a dollar store mini pumpkin. 

This "wizard" snap fastener card was in my great-grandmother's sewing basket.  It couldn't be more perfect in color or theme for this display.  In the same basket was the scrap of black polka dot fabric, that co-ordinates so nicely with the dominoes, which came in a grab bottle of miscellaneous stuff, including the tin moon and star on the left.  Serendipity in the studio! 
Thanks for stopping by today to check it out.
Happy Fall!


  1. How awesome! I love seeing how you are incorporating your ancestral items in your art.

    1. Thanks, Lisa! It does make my projects more meaningful when I include family items.
