Now that the cat is out of the bag and the 2019 FALL ISSUE OF COUNTRY RUSTIC MAGAZINE is on the stands, I can share the extra photos of the farmhouse all dressed up for HARVEST. . .When the official magazine photographer finished and had left the farm for another destination, I took out my trusty camera and did my own photo shoot. . .I did rearrange a few things, so it’s not exactly as it was, but it is still plain and simple HARVEST style. . .
Let’s begin with some living room inspiration:
As I’ve told you so many times, we are all about COTTON and the harvest of it in the Fall. So, naturally cotton is the focus for the vignettes. . . and the colors of the cotton bolls are carried out in other items, too. . .White ceramic PUMPKINS. . .the browns of BURLAP. . .the golden tans of CORN HUSKS. . .
With a mound of small BALES OF COTTON, I filled up this wonderful old pick-up truck and placed it underneath the sofa table, adding a burlap pumpkin and FALL LEAVES.
There’s even a bale of cotton inside a wire pumpkin on top of the table. The gins no longer bale this way, so these miniature burlap bales are important reminders of our past.
Of course, I need at least one bucket filled with COTTON STALKS, to place behind the 1910 vintage chair that belonged to my grandmother. . .
And, on top of the glass display cabinet, small white pumpkins, sitting in Windsor chairs. . .How could it be more SIMPLE?
