Fall decorating just got MORE FUN!!!

We have an island in the kitchen here in our condo that separates the kitchen from the living room.

It creates a small ‘wall’ on the living room side that we knew we didn’t need for bar stools…(this is another small wall on the end that will give you an idea of what I mean…since I forgot to take a ‘before’ photo! lol)…

so my husband found the perfect little shelf unit for me to use to display seasonal things!

He brought out my boxes of Fall items

and I looked around for some of my old books and vintage items to fill the cubbies!

It sure was fun to make little vignettes for Fall!

Do you have a space in your house that could use some shelves?

We bought these at Walmart for $29.97!! You can’t beat that!

Ha, I love that little squirrel. I think he's staring at me. Too cute.

That little squirrel is a hoot. I like how you incorporated the cheese grater and small muffin tin in with the other stuff.~Ames

Diane, I love the cubbies. So cute, and so much better than a boring, plain back of an island. I like all your fall goodies in it, too!

I love all that display space. So cute and your fall touches pop against the black.

You took a great assortment of items and turned it in to something totally adorable!! I love it! (and you've given me some ideas too!)

ShirleyC said...

That looks great! I bought a tall shelf from WM to put fabric on so I could keep it in sight hoping I would get more done. LOL

The French Hutch said...

Your husband is talented and very thoughtful to make you the shelves for your seasonal items. It looks fabulous. I love all your fall things and the way you displayed them in the shelves. Love the little book with the saltbox house, and all the pumpkins on the top shelf. Hope your having a great week.

Lovely use of space. The shelves fit perfectly there. You have so many nice fall diaplays. I love them all. ~ Fondly, Susie

Donna said...

I love it! That squirrel cracked me up, LOL. Too cute! OK, you've gotten me officially in the mood to put out some fall decorations. That's a terrific place for a seasonal display. And $29 for the whole shelf unit? What a steal!

Diane Writes said...

Your home decors name mate! They make me really happy. How cute and organized to see them. I can't wait for the next months to see what's more in your home.

Della said...

I love what you did! (and great thinking on your hubby's part!)

This is a wonderful display! Funny how I can suddenly smell pumpkin pie ;)

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Definitely looks like Fall over here. And what a thoughtful husband. I gathered all my seashells up yesterday and will replace with Fall. I can't find my acorns I collected last year. :(

Honey at 2805 said...

The shelving unit was a real find! You are definely getting in the mood for Fall!

I hope you will bring one of your projects or posts to my Potpourri Friday Party this week. Link-up starts on Thursday afternoon. Without a doubt, your participation will help make the party better!

Jan said...

I love your kitchen and love the island too. I even spotted the little mouse I sent you. How awesome is that. I love the red in the kitchen. My kitchen has a lot of barn reds in it too. Of course Red is my signature color. Well, at least I have a lot of it in my home.
Have a great week
Jan

Happy@Home said...

How fun and so cute too!! I enjoyed checking out each little cubby and that squirrel is adorable.

Shannon@ Cozy Home Scenes said...

You must have a very sweet hubby to make a place to showcase your pretty fall things. That looks like a very good spot for them. The books look great with the pumpkins and other things. Shannon

Hi Di
I love the squirrel also ! I've never seen on so cute there has been a little bunny out under my bird feeder about all afternoon and I'm so afraid he is going to get carried off by a hawk ...they are always scouting the area for a meal,,it is making me so afraid for him. I've never seen a rabbit hang around so long just to eat seeds on the ground. Happy fall time decorating you have a lovely display !

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

This cubby book case looks so festive, Diane! I enjoyed looking at your fall items. I agree with everyone that the squirrel is so cute! I also liked all the vintage children's books you places on the shelves.

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

What a great addition to the kitchen!! Love the way you arranged everything -- the books make it so warm and inviting as do all of your fall decorations!!

Kasia said...

These are so cute! I think it looks really good by your kitchen! :)

Hugs,

Tammy said...

This is just darling! And that squirrel!!! He's to die for!!!! What a hoot. Thanks for sharing this with us :)

Vee said...

Do I recognize the painting there? Hmmm...looks something like one I now have. It does look quite autumnal, too.

That shelving is a good way for you to display some of your autumn treasures. I love reading the old reading primers in September. Some of those graphics scream autumn.

What a great bookshelf for display purposes. I love all your fall vignettes. I spent last weekend playing with my fall decor which includes acorns. I'd gladly borrow your cute little squirrel.
