Thanksgiving Vignettes Party


I was thrilled to be asked to be a part of Sherry's Thanksgiving Vignette Party.   I love vignettes and can "play" for hours creating one. Thank you Sherry and please visit her blog 
No Minimalist Here for more fabulous Autumn displays.  Because I will be visiting elsewhere for Thanksgiving this year, I only did a few tiny things in the house but I did get into it with the outside of my home, so without further ado....let's go.

 this rusty crusty cast iron urn is so much fun to decorate every season.  A pumpkin topiary with magnolia and acuba leaves for this season's theme

Another urn, with a decided French theme, gets a big fat white pumpkin and green moss

 Okay.....I did do just a little in the house   :) ....a few tiny pumpkins scattered here and there.  This one sits atop my latest purchase of old ironstone

 the vintage twisted cast metal fern stand holds a tall stately pumpkin along with some found field antlers

 at the top of the drive, another vignette greets our visitors


an unusual Autumn wreath created from new/old  country store stock of stove pipe parts.  I loved the rustiness of the old piece and as soon as I saw them at auction, I knew exactly what they would become.  They all sold in my booth but one.  If you want, just holler.

By the lamppost at the bottom of the walkway, the bicycle gets  new flowers every season.  I think Fall is my favorite.


the small acanthus leaf shelf, I ordered from Ballards years ago.  It holds a sweet single item every season by the front door.


And lastly, not a vignette, but I wanted to share a Thanksgiving with you we celebrated several years ago outdoors.  If you ever get the chance and the weather permits, have your feast outside, like the pilgrims did.  I watched the weather for two weeks.  Our weather can be warm or snowy for Thanksgiving, but that year it was perfect for dining outside.  I used some raggedy old quilts as the tablecloths with white pumpkins, osage apples,  and branches for the centerpieces with some old gold pottery pheasants.  The appetizers were simple .....just baskets of unshelled  Virginia peanuts.  The guests enjoyed them and just tossed the shells in the yard.  :)  

Thank you for letting me come into your home today.  I am so grateful for you, my readers.  HAPPY THANKSGIVING.  x0

Oh I love your Fall decor, so beautiful. That stove pipe wreath is amazing and that bicycle is to die for. What a fabulous piece that is. All of your vignettes are so pretty. The view from the deck is totally amazing, I would love to have Thanksgiving there. Thanks so much for the tour.

Love that wonderful weathered urn with pumpkins, and of course that beautiful ironstone display!

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Hi Lynn: It looks so pretty and festive. I love the wreath made of stove parts. Your welcoming pumpkin stack by the door is beautiful. Such a warm welcome..Happy Wednesday..Judy

It looks great! I love the idea of eating outside. We rarely have a year when we can do that, and I don't think this year will be one of them. Colder than can be right now. I will remember that, though, for when we can do it. It sounds like so much fun. And you have an amazing view from your deck. Hope you have been well, harvest is finally over here, but so busy anymore trying to get things done around here.

I enjoyed taking a tour of your Fall décor. That outdoor table setting looks so inviting with that gorgeous view! Wish it was warm enough here for that.

Alycia Nichols said...

Oh, yeah...you TOTALLY got into it on the outside!!! It looks fantastic all around! I wish we could do that here. The wind is NOT our friend here in the Kansas City area!!! We'd have an APB out on all the stuff by daybreak!

Sarah said...

Lynn, it all looks festive! I, too, like adding some autumn touches to the outdoor containers, and especially like your vignette with the bicycle. Dining alfresco for Thanksgiving is ideal in my mind. Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh I love that old rusty tin stove pipe wreath that is first time I have seen that and love it
reminds me of our old stove pipe from our Warm Morning stove when I was a country kid growing up

So lovely. Your ironstone is beautiful.

Miss Kitty said...

Wow! I love all of your Thanksgiving vignettes but the one with the hay bale and the bicycle one are my favorites!
I hope my farmer's market has some more little pumpkins so I can scatter them around like you have...so cute!
