Timeworn Hush Greets Fall

All Photos Burlap Luxe Home by Dore Callaway

Awakening of Fall in my home with soulwork.

Fall is where your heart lands, a season of renewal;
awaiting the seasons to come.

A French chest that sits in my entry to my French rustic home welcomes my very soul to a
natural fall home.
I gave this piece many finishes until I settled on a patina that added an
authentic awakening.

Natural French Fall

Even the colourless pumpkins are crowned and loved with the art of rustic fall.

This crown is one of my bent and twisted wire creations.

Fall and its natural organic pieces underfoot encourage an imagination with
rustic country living.

A custom ordered crown for Vera, this piece was loved for what it added to my fall.

When stain and colour was not definable that's when I knew it was done.

Vera, its on its way to you and your beautiful Row Home Philadelphia.

Thank you Dore for giving me so many photos to pin for inspiration! I adore the crowned white pumpkin, true Autumn Bliss!

diane said...

Your posts inspire me!!!!
And I so need a crown!!!! OMG!!!!

Vera said...

You have brought tears to my eyes. To think your soulful creation will dwell in my home for me to adore and admire has touched my heart beyond words.

Love it on the white pumpkin for pumpkins are one of my two favorite gifts of nature. I wait patiently to find the ones that whisper to my heart. Those with interesting pretty stems and beauty.

The other gift from nature I treasure is when the Cherry Blossoms release their fleeting beauty to admire but for only a short time. Everyyear John and I take the drive to Washington DC to admire and photograph the beauty of
the Blossoms.

Your amazing eye, your artistic talent your sheer magical way moves me.

I love and will treasure the beautiful crown and it will make appearances on my blog once I start posting.

merci my beautiful friend.
Sending love,

Hi Dore,
Could you contact me at my email I have something to ask you. Thanks so much.

Rebecca said...

Dore thanks so much for stopping by. Your fall decor is lovely, gives me inspiration to do something around here. The weather has been so gloomy here that my inspiration level has been in the dumps. Thanks for the lift.
Blessing today

I thank you my dear friend, for coming to visit my post. My mother died 27 years ago, but how she died made how she lived even more poignant. My writing skills are getting better, and hopefully will give good credit to her story. LOVE TO YOU! Anita

Gail Peterson said...

So pretty that wire crown...It looks like it has teeny bells on some of the points, not sure but just so special. I hope you make them for yourself and your daughter!

Have a beautiful rest of your weekend!

Karena said...

Dore every time I visit a hush comes over me. I love the white pumpkins and your most wonderful crown. The French chest is so wonderful and I can imagine you take pleasure every time you gaze upon it!
