Fall decorating, the kitchen backer’s rack

The baker’s rack in the kitchen is something I enjoy decorating for the seasons. I love the cozy, homey feeling of seasonal decorating, it’s something I look forward to. This year the baker’s rack is decorated with my favorite blue pumpkins and old crocks and vintage bakeware. I added some old cookbooks and blue jars for more seasonal color and concentrated on pulling out colors from the oil painting, which is a yardsale find. Gotta love that!

Since our kitchen is small I like to keep most of the surfaces clear for food prep, so it’s fun to have this piece to decorate.

The colors of the old bowls and crocks are perfect for fall decorating.

The baker’s rack was originally dark wood. You can se the  previous looks here.

The handled crock was given to me by a friend for helping her move. The blue pumpkins are Jarrahdale, pumpkins (I think), and this is the first year I tried them. I like the color for decorating but don’t know how they taste yet. When I’m done with fall décor I’ll try them and see what they taste like in a pie.

I nested a pumpkin in this piece of bakeware that I found in my Mom’s things and I love it! It even has a lid.

We grew the butternut squash and the vine practically overtook the tomatoes in the garden. I thought I was buying a zucchini plant but surprise, it was a squash! Someone must have been playing with the tags in the garden center where we bought the plants. Sarcastic smile The squash are in another old bowl.

Fall gives us so many beautiful things. We haven’t had a frost yet so we are still harvesting vegetables from our garden.

chalkboard wall

Here’s a peek at the hallway off our kitchen that leads to the garage. It’s got 3 doors, powder room, closet and basement door and I never knew what to do with it so I decided to paint it with chalkboard paint. Now we have a place to write lists and notes or decorate for the seasons. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before! It’s an ideal spot for a chalkboard. Now, if only I could do some fancy hand lettering it would be beautiful too.

Thanks for visiting! Debra (((xx)))

    Your penmanship looks beautiful to me! I want a baker’s rack for my small porch for all the reasons you are enjoying it in your kitchen. I think that those blue pumpkins are so nice. Have only seen them on blogs…none in our markets that I have seen.
