Thrifted Seasonal Decorating
When I go thrifting I always keep my eye out for cute vintage seasonal things- especially in the off season. If I see cute Christmas ornaments in March- you bet I'll pick them up. In fact I found my favorite velvet fruit ornaments in February one year, there's no way I could leave those beauties behind.
The other day I brought fall to my front hall by combining thrifted goodies and some new pieces I got from stores this year. Autumn is all about warm tones and textures and I love to play around with them.
My front hall table has two thrifted elements to make up a table. I have a set of pink marble bases that hold a textured wood top- this combination is so interesting and appealing to me, I am so happy I found these pieces. Under is also a spot for log storage, we have lots of fires in the cooler months. The left hand side is a stack of layered vessels with a plant my aunt gave me 8 years ago- I still don't know the name but I love it.
I thrifted the arched mirror and I love how it gives this small space some height and brings the eye up- there is a skylight above that the plants love. I also layered in a cute thrifted standing picture frame that I tucked one of my favorite wallpaper samples in. Of course there is my pumpkin rug too- I love it!
Now, to my favorite part of this whole scene, the owls in the terrarium. All of these pieces were thrifted over the years except the found greenery and lichen on the inside. I love this little moment so much- it gives me slightly spooky fall vibes and I just can't get enough of it. I couldn't believe it when I saw this giant terrarium for $12! There was another right beside it for $65, I for sure thought I was a misprint in the price. But that is the magic of thrifting, you never know what you are going to find. I found both owls a few years ago at the same store.
The book pumpkins, moon and stars, warm eucalyptus, and candle were all bought this year and you can find them here.
