Fall, Our Bow Window & My Little Antique Wheel Barrow

From the minute I saw our bow window, in our realtor's listing, I knew it would be a great place to spotlight my seasonal displays.
Some of you may have seen the sneak peek of my wheel barrow, on facebook or hometalk last week, well, my pics are ready to share!

The center of attention is my, very special, antique, child's, wheel barrow with it's, original, red stenciled design...isn't it a beauty?

Metal rims, flat head screws and iron brackets with rivets, all telltale signs of it's age.

It was manufactured in 1923 and sold @ wholesale for @ $27 per dozen  and the current asking price for this model is $800!

It's filled with an assortment of pumpkins and my rooster charger.

The vibrant autumn colors just work so well in our country styled home.

A narrow, burlap runner, acorn adorned votive and cards from my honey's birthday add more interest to the window display.

Here's a full view.

The bright light from the window is perfect for my two hanging planters...they used to hang in our old living room window, you can see how they looked back then, here.

Oh, how I love our kitchen!

Here it is with my brown transferware....those beautiful dishes can be seen here.
 and back to fall.

Can't wait to deck it out for the Holiday's this year!

Love, Hugs and Kisses,

It looks PERFECT in the window. I would have so much fun changing it up from season to season. I want one!!!! Maybe I'll get lucky and find one at an Estate Sale closer to the original asking price, lol.
