Pumpkins and Owls

September 14, 2012
In my last post, I introduced you to my new owl collection.

In this post, I am putting the owls to work in my kitchen shadow box. Five of the seven new owls are right here, along with some regulars like tin cookie cutters, red metal stars, Rumford biscuit cutter, tomato salt and pepper shakers, and Ball Jar. Other new additions are candy corn, a vintage orange Folgers coffee puzzle in a can, a vintage McCormick mustard tin, a pumpkin plate, and some fall foliage.

I have mini pumpkins displayed on my Pottery Barn chairs that double as mini shelves during holidays.

More chairs and a wood pumpkin sign, a Black Eyed Susan pillow, and more pumpkins.

I think my fall suitcase is perfect on the kitchen table. It's vintage and country, like the shadow box.

I took the two orange books out of the suitcase and added a couple leaf shaped plates. They seemed more kitcheny!

Other changes in the kitchen include the new funnels, and the little galvanized pail with a number 7 on it. The funnels are vintage and the pail is new from a local floral shop. The little succulents are faux but really cute. (Funnels are becoming a new collection)

The flat bowl on the bottom was just purchased at a consignment shop for $3. It was made in Italy and marked Tre Ci.

The plate pictures a man and woman harvesting in the fields. I thought it seemed like a fall scene and the stripe around the bowl is an orange red. The caption on the bowl says "le colline Toscane".

That's it for now!

I guess they are quite the thing this fall as I see them in all the stores. You have a wonderful collection. And you suitcase is so interesting too! Linda

  12. So many great owls out there this season! Love those fuzzy pumpkins and the idea of corralling it all in a suitcase, rather than a tray or box.
