A Winner and The Last Day of Summer

Thanks to all of you that entered our little giveaway! We have a winner~ Polly at the fabulous Sassafras Stuff blog. Yipee! Congrats, Polly, please send me an email  at allthatjazzvintage@gmail.com so I can get some information from you!

I've been pulling out a few fall goodies at my house.



The green window has been sitting on my floor since last spring. I "bought" it from our space (it was a find from my cousin) for $15. Even though I am not usually into green, I couldn't resist the chippy wood. And, the green was a cool shade of green.  The backside is white chippy, so it has potential to be reversed if I tire of the green. For now, I hung a wooden star on the frame but hope to hang a twig or rose hip wreath when I get one. I also put my favorite numbers up!

I love my little white dollar store pumpkins.


Caw, caw- crows! The dome and silver tray I bought from Melaine at My Sweet Savannah when she was at the French Flea market in Kirkland, Washington two weekends ago. She's a doll and had such great stuff! I also collect bare branches from my sister's farm to fill vases (the glass and metal in the top photo was .75 at a yard sale.)



I love tones of cream, beige, gold, and plaid for fall. This rustic frame came from Value Village for 1.99. I framed a photo of a rescued wolf named Pahana which I saw when I visited Wolf Haven International this past summer. The birch candle holder I had, and the battery-operated candle is also from Value Village.

It's hard to believe that summer is really over. I took a jog today and as I ran a long the leaf-carpeted path, I could really feel it in the air.......

.......enjoy the season, everyone!

Congrats to Polly! Listen, you are not THAT pokey, you actually took that window home in July. Cut yourself some slack! Your decorations look great. I haven't done anything yet.
I wish you were going to be here to help me with the space! Your Mom and I are going to do it on Friday I think because we won't have time next week before the sale.
Did you see Auntie's comment? Can you IMAGINE! Poor kid, toughing it out in Monacco!

Hey Michelle, I love your green window! I'll bet it is great to be able to shop from your own space.LOL! The crows are such a great decor for Fall too. I would love to find some of those.
Loved to see that you came by to see my little home away from home. Yep, I love having the horses keep me company. We have 3 natural springs on the property and my husband goes up almost daily to make sure they are staying in. But even if they get out, our neighbors keep a close eye on them. They are miles from a main road, so they are safe. I think they think they are pretty lucky to live the life of a mustang.
