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?
In fact, everything is done SIMPLY. . .That was the GOAL. .
.How did we do?
