While Mr. Heart and I were in Tennessee we did a little treasure hunting.  I was happy to find this vintage enamel roasting pan.

I loved the size, color and was especially happy to see SAVORY on the front.

So, I thought it needed a little something fallish...

What says fall better than mums and lantana? 

 Yellow mums...

 These burgandy beauties will have yellow centers.  Can't wait for them to open up...

 Bright yellow lantana, so dainty...

 And this cute little fella. He's a bit too white for Fall, so...

 a little spray of this and a little dap of that should do the trick...

 There now, that's better...

Just a little more finessing to do and I'll see you on the porch!
Love your sweet comments...



  1. I'm popping over from Brenda's Cozy Little House to say hello. I love how you warmed up sweet Mr. Squirrel. And the hutch from your aunt and dishes from your granny are a perfect match. My Mammaw made great banana pudding and I do remember fondly all the holidays and special occasions spent at her home. She had a small kitchen table and dining area that were right next to each other. The adults would sit in the kitchen and the kids would sit in the dining room and any overflow was either in the living room or outside at the picnic table. She had a huge backyard which was a great place for Easter egg hunts. Her home was small, her furniture remained the same all her life, she never wanted for anything. Yep! Brings back memories (in fact, now I'm tearing up :/! Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend. Blessings, Tammy

  2. Treasures!!! And the flowers are so pretty!!! Ours are all so dry.... Send rain & keep your photos coming. Helps me remember what thing are supposed to look like.

  3. Oh I love that the roasting pan is white. I cook my roast in the big old blues ones still.

  4. The roasting pan is a great find! Lucky You! Very pretty fall looking flowers! The little guy looks perfect painted. Have a great weekend.

  5. I don't know that I've ever seen a roasting pan like the one you found. I love antiques and shabby, chipped items!
    Using Pledge and Old English on your little squirrel? I've never heard of that little trick.
    Looking forward to seeing the roasting pan floral arrangement :)

  6. Hi Cindy!
    That roasting pan was a FIND!! I just LOVE it!! How perfect that it says "savory" That makes it IMO. And little Mr Squirrel looks perfect in his ready for fall hue! I have some of that scratch filler....Hmmmm I need to wander around the place and see what I have that needs a little tan *winks*
    And I wanted to thank you for your sweet comment on my LR. It made me say "Awwwwwwww bless her heart!" Vanna

  7. I would LOVE to have found that roasting pan. I wonder if Savory was a hot brand years ago...Love that little squirrel, too!

    Have a wonderful weekend!! :-)


  8. Can't wait to see the finished product! ! Love the squirrel..

  9. Cindy, Now, I've used Pledge and Old English scratch cover for years, but I can't say I ever used it on a squirrel. :) He/she looks so much more "fallish".
    I'm popping over from Branda's Cozy Little House. Yay! We were featured. I'm so thrilled. Love your enamel roaster and Fall flowers,

  10. The enamel roaster is wonderful. I'm hopefully getting mums tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing your porch. Have a great Saturday!

  11. Hi Cindy, what a great roasting pan - love the word savory on it. And the flowers are gorgeous. I hate to get rid of them, too. But in Georgia, they will bloom through November frequently. Linda

  12. The enamel roaster is a great find. Your little squirrel looks so cute and all ready for fall. Great job! I cannot wait to plant mums for some fall color, but I will wait a couple of weeks, though.

  13. What a wonderful find! I love all of your fall flowers! Beautiful job!! Found you via Boogieboard Cottage. Toodles, Kathryn

  14. I found you via Boogieboard Cottage. Love your newest find. I love to create planters using vintage containers too. can't wait to see yours completed. Blessings, Barb
