Metamorphosis Monday~Before and Afters

So I thought I'd show you before and after..from summer to fall! I think this qualifies as a Metamorphosis ;-)!
The above pic is the summer look...and below is the fall decor:

The candleholders are the same~just changed out to darker candles. The cloche is a little different..bought that cute angel from a friend's garage sale..

That neat victorian purse is from Laura..she found it at the thrift store! Isn't it beautiful?

Here's the summer look of my coffee (tea table)..and next is the winter look..

I put in and old tapestry under the glass..and made a little arrangement in a gilded container.

And here's the mantle...

and close up's of the goodies! ;-)

I love that picture of the sweet victorian kitties! A garage sale find..

My talented friend, Judy, painted the cherub holding the flowers...and I decoupaged the cherub plate years ago..

..and this sweet girl graces the end of the mantle.
I've been having such fun getting ready for Thanksgiving! We'll be celebrating on Friday so the whole family can attend. I'll share pics in a few days!
Be sure to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for more wonderful decor ideas!
