Autumnizing Old Rusty

This fire place came with our home. We never light it, it's never cold enough. It's a bit rusty looking too. But I like it and I like rusty looking things, so it's staying.

This is the way I had "Old Rusty" decorated for the Summer time, and pretty much most of the year. But now it's time to dress him up for Fall.

I emptied the sand out of the mason jars and filled them with fake leaves and topped the jars with hurricanes.
I strung some twine with clothes pins, paper leaves and vintage photos.
This vintage ceramic coffee pot was missing it's lid and I paid $1.50 for it at GW.






This is a collection of white ceramic squashes I found at GW for dirt cheap during the off season.

Hi Mary. I just found you blog over at Met Monday. I love old Rusty's fall makeover. There's so much to like, I'll just say I like it all. I'm now following you (as tonasun) and look forward to coming back often. I hope you'll stop by and visit at cottonpickincute.blogspot.com.

I adore the Farewell to summer button on your left sidebar. Would you mind if I made a copy to use for a paper tag. If you don't want me to I certainly would understand. I just don't want to borrow without asking.

Hugs...Tracy :)

Thank you so much for your visit and birthday greetings! I have this same fireplace situated just like yours in a corner with the two windows. English husband elevated it on a platform when we rebuilt the room. I use mine alot in winter and love it!!!
