Faking a Fall Vignette - Προσποιείται μια Φθινοπωρινή  βινιέτα

Sharing is caring!

Here in my costal town in the boondocks, we have blue waters, lots of olive trees but not much in the way of traditional Fall decor.  So it was with great sadness that I emerged from our local “Euro Store” with a measly bunch of fake squashy looking sort of things.  I want to celebrate Fall but the powers that be are conspiring against me. The squash came attached to fake leaves on a vine-like rope.  I removed them and painted them.  I was also lucky enough to find some real squash at the local supermarket and so this is my contribution to the Fall decor. 

Εδώ στην παραλιακή πόλη μου, έχουμε γαλανά νερά, πολλά ελαιόδεντρα, αλλά όχι  πολλά για  παραδοσιακή Φθινοπωρινή διακόσμηση. Λοιπόν, με μεγάλη λύπη  βγήκα  από το τοπικό μας “Ευρώ Store” ένα πράγμα που  έμοιαζε  με  μικρά  κολοκύθια.  Θέλω να γιορτάσω το Φθινόπωρο, αλλά οι δυνάμεις συνωμοτούν εναντίον μου.Τα κολοκύθια ηταν ενωμένα με ψεύτικα φύλλα σε ένα αμπέλι-σχοινί. Τα αφαίρεσα  και  τα έβαψα ελαφρά. Ήμουν επίσης αρκετά  τυχερή  που βρήκα   κάποιες πραγματικές  κολοκύθες στο τοπικό σούπερ μάρκετ. Αυτή είναι η προσφορά  μου για τη  Φθινοπωρινή διακόσμηση. 

Faking a Fall Vignette,
​You may recall  that on my last post I showed you this drawer which was repurposed into a tray and it had the backgammon design.  This was used for the vignette. 

Ίσως να θυμάστε ότι την τελευταία φορά σας έδειξααυτό το συρτάρι που είχα  διαμορφώσει σε ένα δίσκο και είχε σχέδιό τάβλι. Αυτό χρησιμοποιήθηκε για την βινιέτα.

I used items found in nature such as pine cones, dry leaves and of course the pumpkins, and only added the fake white mini-squash to offset the darker colors. 

Χρησιμοποίησα αντικείμενα που βρίσκονται στη φύση, όπως κουκουνάρια, ξερά φύλλα και φυσικά τις κολοκύθες, και προσθεσα μόνο τα ψεύτικα λευκά κολοκυθάκια για να ισορροπήσουν τα πιο σκούρα χρώματα.​

I’ve faked a fall vignette and it now sits proudly displayed on my coffee table.  Because let’s face it, unless I go hiking up to the mountains I will not be finding any Fall here on the  coast.  I do believe I did a pretty good job of it. Do you agree with me?  

Αυτή η βινιέτα τώρα κάθεται περήφανα στο τραπεζάκι του σαλονιού. Διότι ας το παραδεχτούμε, αν δεν πάω καμιά βόλτα στα βουνά δεν θα βρω το Φθινόπωρο  εδώ στην ακτή. Πιστεύω πως έκανα μια  αρκετά καλή δουλειά. Εσείς συμφωνείτε μαζί μου ;​

I am wondering where you live? We are in Pa. I like your little Fall vignette and am glad you could find something to make this!

Pinky I live across the pond all the way in Greece, but am a New Yorker at heart. So now you see my dilemma. Too much sunshine and beaches. But I crave the New England Fall.

I love it! I know what you mean, same here, there isn't much Fall like we know it. I found the same gourds here, lol. And the pine cones add a nice fall touch too!

Katrin, I have been hoarding those pinecones for years now. The gourds were horrible, I had to paint over them, and well, they are a little better. Too bad Lidl doesn't sell Fall decorations. They have beautiful things for Christmas!! :D

Mary, I love it!! You really did a great job decorating for fall!!


Monday 19th of October 2015

Thanks Keri, It turned out pretty good considering that I live in the land of the seashells. The pinecones were picked when we had gone for a trip to the woods a few years back, and I just fawn over them and cherish them so much.

Lindsay it was easy to put together. Tthe hard part came before. All the brain wracking to figure out what to put in the tray.
