Time~Worn Primitive *PROP TABLE* with PuMPkiNs!*!*!

One of my SHaBBy-SHoPPing Stops this past weekend, was the Grayslakes Flea in Illinois...  With time constraints, I flew through the market - and netted a FaB Primitive "Prop-Table" from Carla's Booth!*!*!

 Crude as can be!*!*!
 Rusty-Nails...  ChiPPy Paint...  
One-Of-A-Kind ViNtaGe F*I*N*D
Just PeRfeCt for Fall & UpComing
HoLiDay Displays!!!

 Working on my
 SHaBBy Show S*T*A*S*H Yesterday...
Frog Husband was cutting down tons of Wild Cucumber Vine
on the property...  The PeRfeCt Accent for my *New Find*
along with Greenish-Grey & White Pumpkins!*!*!
Unfortunately the Vine's Life will be "Short-Lived"
turning brown as it dries...  I love it's "star-like" leaves
and of course those prickly hanging berries ~ which are
 actually soft to the touch!!!

Green & White F*A*L*L PuMpKiNs, along
with the Wild Cucumber Vine, make for a 
*Farm-House Style* Vignette...

Hope your week is off to a good start!*!*!

Early F*A*L*L ~ Entry Vignette ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Style!*!*!

 I like to Display a "Seasonal Theme" in the Front Entry of our Home...  Keeping it just in this area, - instead of all over the house - REALLY HAS IMPACT...  

In years past I've found myself tiring of all the "orange & black" colors
come Early October...  Sooooo THIS YEAR - I've gone with
a much softer approach for these Early September Days - using
Lots of W*H*I*T*E with a hint of Harvest Yellow to make it POP!*!*!

 Wonderfully ChiPPy-WHiTe Basket filled 
with this Season's Freshly Dried Yarrow...

I LoVe O*W*L*S
mixed-in with F*A*L*L...

 ViNtaGe Iron VaSe
 with Carrion Berries...

 Mini WHiTe PuMpKiNs!*!*!
I had this darling smaller-sized chippy white 
bench for sale at the Flea this past weekend...
Soooo glad no one bought it!!!  I LoVe it's 
nooked lower shelf for display!*!*!

Chippy Ornate Iron Fragment
"just tucked behind for a hint of interest"
when viewing from the side...

After looking at the vignette for a bit,
I decided to add the Carrion Berries Vase
along with ChiPPy White Grill Tucked in the back
It "warmed it up" just a bit!*!*!

Time~Worn Architectural Elements 
Always Add Sooooo Much!*!*!

Sooooo Much More Interesting
 than brand new!*!*!

I'm **Linking-Up** 
for her Fall Inspiration PaRty!*!*!
