A New Wall Collage



The breakfastroom area has looked like this for quite some time and I have really enjoyed it.



However, maybe something a little different for Fall and Winter.



So, I changed out the plates and a few of the shelf accessories for a little bit of a different look on the wall collage.   Of course the table centerpiece changes constantly, but for now it still has the dough bowl full of pumpkins, gourds and fall leaves.


I am not a believer that everything has to change to create a different look.  Some things are just the perfect size and shape, so they stayed.  While the shelf is quite massive in it's size, the depth of the shelf is only 5 inches, so I have to choose items that are rather narrow to fit, and the duck tureen, yellow cache pot and the artichoke are all just perfect.  They have some presence, but they are narrow, so they fit the shelf.





An urn with a moss ball, two plates and a different rooster is all that switched on the shelf.



 I used one of the haystack plates on this end to tie the shelf into the wall collage.



I think this little cow plate is so cute, and of course the little yellow rooster is a favorite.


 I love the black transferware plates and used 3 different scenes to change out the plates in the collage. The covered bridge, haystack and farmhouse.


 Same scenes on this side of the collage.


 Fun for a change and has a totally new look.

So just a few small changes and from this to - - - - - -


This.   What do you think?

  4. Yes, I love the simple change out for Fall, Marty! While I love green plates, myself, the darker transferware really cozies the space up. I agree, too, not everything has to be changed out. Sometimes I just like something where it is too much to move, so I keep it in and add around it.

  10. As always, such new arrangements. You have the nicest things to work with. I wish I had the courage to change things more frequently. When I do, I sometimes get stuck and can't quite get it to look just right. You always provide great ideas and inspiration for me. Thanks for sharing.
