More Autumn Decorations

As usual my pottery collection plays a big part in my holiday decorations (mostly because I would have to find a place to store it all if I didn't display it along with the seasonal stuff :). A corner-cupboard in my dining room displays some yellow pottery. I kept my yellow pottery out because I think it compliments the fall colors.

These pottery squirrels come out every autumn. The pink & gray ones are McCoy. I love these. I found the pink one at a church rummage sale for 10 cents. Actually my super hubby spotted it. Can you believe that luck? - 10 cents! The gray squirrel was bought at a yard sale. I paid a little more for it but I'm glad I did. Our town is known for it's gray squirrels every where. I love to put him out on display every fall. The salt & pepper shakers also came from a yard sale somewhere. A candy tin for Bowers Old Fashioned Peanut Brittle is in the back. I didn't even think about the connection between nuts and squirrels when I put that there...only later did I get it.

I like to add vintage paper ephemera to my displays too. I added some vintage game cards here and a moth ball tin - think Silence of the Lambs!

This Anchor Hocking milk glass apple always comes out in the fall as well along with some plastic apple coasters.

This awesome vintage Brach's Candy advertisement was given to me by my friend Cindy last year. She put it in a gold frame. I am displaying it on my Life Savers rack - also in my dining room.

And there is more to show - which I hope to do within the next few days. Thanks for looking!
