Fall in the Entry





Decided to pull together a 
fall look for the front entry.

The cedar paneling is darker
than usual -- a cloudy day here.

I thought I would bring in 
two of my recent finds from the
Junk Bonanza --.
a small crazy quilt 
with a scalloped edge 
and this funky black vase,
which is not typically something I
would have purchased, but the two together.....
somehow really work! 






















Perfect for a fall vignette, don't you think?
