Weekend Digging



I love white in all climates, but when autumn arrives I tend to turn to the dark side. I can't help myself. Instead of russets, yellows, and pumpkin orange, I'm more inclined to indulge my taste for the colors of leather, wood, and rust. Weeds and twigs over roses. These junky drawers fulfilled all my desires at four bucks apiece! Just look at that irreplaceable hardware!


A lovely antique runner with a leaf motif lightens things up and suggests the new season for me. I'm always thrilled to find an old pique piece, and this one is eyelet!


























I hope you're having as much fun as I am digging around in Autumn!
Ciao! for now!

You know I LOVE everything you do....and this might, perhaps, be my favorite thus far...though how could I possibly choose? I COVET those drawers~~!!! And you styled them so perfectly....what a great color/texture balance and contrast with the eyelet runner! You know I adore vintage linens, too.
This is autumnal perfection!!!!

Hugs/blessings,
Lana

Those junky drawers are just fantastic! I LOVE them and the way you have added the twigs and rustic pieces is just my style for fall. Lucky for you to have found them.

Finally! Words for my own "tastes". Thank you for helping me give name to them.

Hi Jacqueline,
I can't believe you found such great funky old drawers for just $4.00 each...what a steal! I love old drawers...the more age and rust the better....not only for their history but also for their usefulness as display and collage pieces, decorative storage, wall art, etc. Loved seeing your fall decor...thanks for sharing.

I adore the runner- it's so beautiful. Your decorating style is what I would like to achieve but I'm sure mine space won't look even close to yours. You have a great eye for gorgeous things.-------Shannon

Gail said...

I like your "wabi sabi" interpretation of fall - dark, rusty, old leather.

My thoughts of fall are similar to yours. I have wicker, rusted and galvanized metal, and dried flowers. Love the hardware on your drawers.
