Falling for Vintage Fall Home Tour


Welcome to the Falling for Vintage Home Tour Blog Hop. I am joining an amazingly talented group of bloggers today in sharing our homes and rooms decorated for Fall with a vintage touch.

Falling for Vintage: Home Tour

When I think of fall, I think of mums, apples, pumpkins, sunflowers, and … wait for it … wool blankets. I have several vintage wool blankets that I like to bring out for the cooler months. I fold them at the end of beds, use them as tablecloths, and drape them over sofas and chairs. They just cozy everything up a bit.

I also have a few hand stitched fall table runners from my mother-in-law’s collection that I love bringing out in the fall too. This partridge table runner is a favorite. I added some yellow mums, I picked up at Home Depot, into my father-in-law’s antique tool hod.

Billy Balls (Craspedia) were added to an antique bottle my husband found while dump digging at an old farm site. Those little yellow pom poms make me so happy and they last for a long time.

In the dining room, a fall table runner with vintage vegetable creamers takes center stage on a mid-century Homer Laughlin plate. On the buffet is a collection of vintage green vases and creamers along with some orange pumpkins and yellow mums.

I put some silk bittersweet branches in the antique dough bowl filled with shells.

In the kitchen, I used a vintage wool scarf as a table runner and added a bucket of fall flowers – hydrangeas, sunflowers, ornamental cabbage and dahlias – to the table.

My favorite time to have a picnic is the fall, so I have an antique picnic basket and wool blanket always ready to go.

 I pulled out some vintage blue willow plates and mixed them with newer plates. Bakelite flatware was added to the table setting along with an apple.

I kept things simple in the guest bedroom. There are wool blankets and a handmade wool pumpkin pillow. Hydrangeas are placed in some antique blue glassware along with a pumpkin on the nightstand.

    very pretty. I’m not quite ready to start in with fall yet. I like the last few days of summer. I’ve noticed that the bittersweet along the path to the beach hasn’t quite opened up yet. I think I’ll wait for it to catch up.

    I just had to come out of hibernation to tell you how lovely everything looks. I’m in love with your wool plaid table runner! I’ve been trying to bring more color into my dining room and I think you’ve given me the perfect solution. Thanks for the fall tour, Mary!

    You did a wonderful job cozying up your home for fall! I love the wool blankets and you can be sure I’m going to “borrow” your idea of using a wool scarf as a table runner! :)

    The mums and the bittersweet are the crowning touch. Great job!

    Beautiful, Mary. I love that it’s not overstated BAM in your face fall. Your subtle fall touches make a much more inspiring impact. Love it!
