Getting Some Fall Decor Ideas

Hi Bloggerettes!  I've been busy trying to find some stuff for my booth.  I want to do a really nice fall display and it's coming together little by little.  First, I found these really great wine crates. I found three of them and the top one has a wooden lid.  If you stack them evenly together then it kinda creates a little table.
Anyway, these crates became the inspiration point for my
Next, I thought I would add a nice basket.  I found this at GW for a song!

A fall display has to have some rust.....so, I found a smaller version of the birdcage I showed you a few weeks ago.
Yep, it was hidden way up high, behind some flower vases, right there at Tuesday Mornings.
But never fear, it couldn't hide from me, because my
birdcage radar went off immediately!

This look is definitely calling for some burlap, oh yeah!

Now, let's put it all together and see how it looks.  Whatta-ya-think?

Dressed up this wreath with some really sweet french ribbon
from Tracey at Raggy Girl Vintage.  She calls this
gorgeous fabric, stamped ribbon, "not your Grandma's ribbon."
Isn't that cute. She has other colors and styles too.  If you haven't met Tracey, then go over and
introduce yourself.  She's a sweetie.
Okay, there you have it.  My first attempts at putting together a fall vingette.  It's still a project in the making and I hope to show it to you once I get it set up in my booth.

 I need inspiration and ideas and I know just where to find them, so I'm off to blog hop!  I'm going over to see Debra at Common Ground. I think she is putting together her fall display in her booth right now and she will be over the top with ideas!
