Etsy Cottage Colors Blog Hop

Looking forward to Autumn weather even though it has gone back to double digits in So.CA. today. I'm joining Etsy Cottage Colors Blog Party today to show a bit of Autumn as the color for this month is browns. This is a little display I quickly put together as I was still cleaning up the aftermath of the family room painting that we have been working on. While painting the one room everything went into the living/dining room area. Now as I clean and rearrange everything and put things away I moved my antique sewing machine and decide to add some fall colors while I was in the process. This is in the living/dining room and I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel. Progress slowly but surely even in the heat. Don't forget to check out the other participants just click on the link above (Cottage Colors) and see what everyone else is doing. I hope to restock my Etsy shop by the first of October so I'm in the lets get busy mode between other things.  Have a great rest of the week!

what a lovely vintage cabinet! You are so lucky to own that! My mom still has my grandmothers--but it is tucked in a back bedroom..I keep telling her she needs to use it as a piece of furniture--she thinks I am nuts...maybe if I show her what you did???? Thanks for sharing Marilou!

Love your antique sewing table with the fall design. Those of us that live in the southwest do the best we can since we really don't get "fall" color displays. Thanks for sharing!

Your antique machine look very nice the way you are using it. My sister has our mothers original Singer that looks like a new one.
