Fall decor without color and a few new Jeanne d'Arc Vintage pieces...

Life's been a little hectic here on the North Carolina and South Carolina coasts and inlands.  The rains came and wouldn't stop thus, causing flooding and more flooding.  It rained non stop for three days.  We were one of the fortunate ones.  We live on a pond and the water surrounded our home.  We were within inches of the water coming inside right before it stopped.  Whew!  Scary!!
However, today the sun is shining and the messes are being cleaned up.  Our hearts go out to those who lost their homes or loved ones.

Here is the back of the house where the pond wasf overflowing....

This is in front of our house.

Okay, on to brighter and happier things...
I'm not much on bright Fall colors, but I love it in other's homes.  For some reason it never works for neutral me.
So here's my version of Fall decor:
As always, I'm excited to show you the newest Jeanne d'Arc Vintage Boho style dress/tunic...
Layers upon layers of ruffles, tulle, pretty fabric, laces and sheerness...

This one is available in my Etsy Shop.

I also can't resist showing you this beautiful JDL Handbag...

This one's also available in my Etsy Shop.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I love it when you do.  Thank you all for being such great Blogging friends.

Adding a little Fall/Winter Glam to the Sofa...

Almost time to bring out the throws and quilts!  So, I've added a little Fall/Winter glam to my white sofa.  Of course this is a sofa that no one is allowed to sit on!  Well, I guess they could but the guys in my family all agree it's just too fancy and girlie for them to go anyway near.  I know...right?
 Lace, embroidered pillows by Jeanne d'Arc Living and round pillow with bling is from Pier1.  Faux fur throw found at TJ Maxx.
 I just finished these soft heavenly blue, metal angel wings....Available here!

 I'm also loving this vintage tulle and pearl wedding wreath that you will find in my etsy shop.
 You'll also find this yummy Jeanne d'Arc metal and pearl crown.
Okay, that's it for now.  What do you do in your home decor to cozy up for Fall and Winter???

I'm joining Coastal Charm's Show and Share Tuesdays! and Marty's Inspire Me Tuesdays!

A touch of Fall and some Jeanne d'Arc

Hello happy bloggers!!!  I hope that you are enjoying the cooler Fall weather and of course, "Everything Pumpkin!"

Speaking of which, this is the only time of year that I add oranges, browns and yellows in my decorating vignettes.  I think it looks good in everyone elses decor, but only a touch for me.  
 I had a crazy September so far.  The shop owner where I had my space decided to sell the building and move out all the vendors, so I've been busy moving everything to a new location.  Flamingo's is now the new home for Sissie's Shabby Cottage.  It's located in Ocean Isle Beach, NC. So, if you ever make it down this way be sure and stop by.

Now, on another note.  I have a few things on sale in my Etsy Shop.  This Jeanne d'Arc dress/tunic has been reduced by $40.  You can also check my Etsy Shop for more sale items.

 This beautiful vintage lace scarf by Jeanne d'Arc is back by popular demand!!!  It's sooooooo pretty!
 This beautiful Jeanne d'Arc wrap scarf just arrived today!  I can just see this over a dress, jacket or wrapped around the waist.  Wear it with a skirt, dress or leggings and pair it with boots.
Okay, that's about it.  I hope to finish my dining table and show it to you.  It's all about mercury glass and mercury glass pumpkins....I think you can relate!
