Today I am so honored that Alison @ The Polohouse is doing a guest post. She is a wife and mom and such a sweet and friendly lady, you will love her if you don't already know her. As you can see by her header picture, she lives in a fabulous Polo Barn and Stable that has been converted into a house. Her home is unbelievable and you will absolutely love her and her decor style. Very elegant and so warm and welcoming, with touches of equestrian charm. She has such a special gift for mixing fabrics, colors and antiques with the new to create stunning rooms and vignettes. Just be prepared to drool every time you visit. Thanks so much Alison, I really appreciate you filling in.
Thank you so much, Marty, for allowing me
the opportunity to be one of your guest bloggers
This is the little fall vignette on my kitchen island
that I added this week.
I found this cute little gold and black paint pail in
Minnesota last month and thought it would be fun filled
with some rust colored mums. It is very old and badly
stained but I loved the colors and graphics and thought
it was charming as found.
It is paired with a small wheel barrow from Pottery Barn
filled with gourds, mini pumpkins and some faux hedge
apples. (Have yet to find any fresh ones!)
The Dutch Boy Paint pail reminded me of my husband's
sweet grandmother. She was a child dancer on the Vaudeville
circuit as a child. She sang and danced during the same years
that Shirley Temple was famous. She traveled all over the country
entertaining audiences from 1920 through 1930. During that time she posed for
the Dutch Boy paint company's logo and here are a couple of shots
from that experience sometime around 1920
Hope you are enjoying these first days of fall
as much as we are here in Illinois. The leaves
are in the beginning stages of their spectacular show!
Enjoy your week, and thank you again Marty for this great honor
of guest hosting on your fantastic blog. Have fun in Hawaii.
