I Recently found this spooky vintage 'painting'
at my favorite thrift store for just a few dollars.
It was nicked in a few places, so I filled those in with
furniture touch up markers.
You would have to look very closely to find the nicks.
Then I found these great 3-D stickers
of a haunted house and full moon
at the craft store.
Now the 'painting' is really spooky!
This ceramic owl was my Mom's.
It is vintage 60's and I remember it
as a child.
I have no idea how it survived a cross-country
move, 5 children and 15 grandchildren!
You can put a candle inside and it looks really
spooky with all the lights turned off.
He's happy roosting on my mantel for the season.
This vintage children's book adds a seasonal bright spot
to the coffee table.
It has wonderful pen and ink/watercolor illustrations.
The Author, Dorothy Sterling (1913 - 2008) was an accomplished writer who worked for Time from 1936-1949 and was then assistant bureau chief in Life's news bureau from 1944-1949!
The illustrator, Winifred Lubell (1914- 2012)
was also an accomplished artist and political activist
with a very long career.
You never know what treasures you will find in your local thrift store!
I love this simple illustration.
The text is very informative, too.
This page is frame worthy!
(Although I would never deface a book!)
I have a growing collection of vintage illustrated children's books
and this one is a favorite.
I also like to decorate with vintage postcards.
This one is very sweet for Halloween.
I framed two of these sweet images.
A bit of seasonal decor in a tiny corner.....
Above my vintage enamel top writing desk.
A few collected treasures....
Pumpkins in a vintage tart pan.
And black crow feathers.
I hope you enjoyed my vintage style autumn decor,
Thank you for your sweet visit <3
'My Sorrow, when she's here with me,
thinks these dark days of autumn rain
are beautiful as days can be;
she loves the bare, the withered tree;
she walks the sodden pasture lane.'
