Red Checks for Early Fall!

I'm not quite ready to get all the oranges and golds out for fall decor, so I've left my red checks out and have added a few fall accents! You'll see fall ... later. I've been busy with real work and haven't had much time to blog ... but here's a quick post.

My wreath is made with red and white checked geo mesh ... easy to do. I added a few clusters of red raffia ribbon to deepen the red color. I really like the geo mesh to work with, but it is a little contemporary for my anything but contemporary home, so I add things like this galvanized bucket filled with Black Eyed Susans. That adds a little country to it!

One of the craft vendors at our annual Apple Festival makes these adorable painted gourd pumpkins! Last year Miss Phoebe and I bought several big ones and this year we bought smaller ones to keep the big guys company. I just clustered these in a country basket ... to wait for their big brothers to join them in a few weeks!

The red and white checked place mats are plastic, but textured to look like fabric.  I bought them at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago ... to use as accent pieces for that wreath!

You'll see my corn husk doll on a dining tablescape a little later this season ... but for now ... she, too ... is waiting for another moment!

The pitchers, doll and basket are all 'junkin' finds! I'll be posting with some of the following parties, so make sure you click through to visit the other posts.
