We just got back from a few days celebrating our 23rd anniversary in Rockland, Maine. While there, we weathered Hurricane Henri for the first couple of days, which allowed for some great thrifting over at Rockland’s Antique Etcetera right downtown. There I found 4 vintage and reproduction doll chairs that I envisioned immediately on our windowsill with white pumpkins for the fall.
Thrifting in Rockland, Maine
Decorating with white pumpkins for fall is my favorite. Especially with the little ones. Faux or real, they both work beautifully throughout the home’s decor.
Every fall I love attending Vermont Vintage Market Days. Last year they had so many white pumpkin decorating ideas on display.
Another go-to for amazing pumpkin decor ideas is Liz over at Liz Marie Blog. She always showcases such beautiful autumn displays from her cozy white farmhouse in Michigan.
Today I want to keep my pumpkin display simple since it’s technically still summer here. So I headed out to our local farmstand and found their only 4 small white pumpkins along with some fresh-cut summer flowers to go with them.
The dining room here at our home in Maine showcases a beautiful four window windowsill that I just love decorating for the seasons.
The sun shining in and the shadows it casts are so warm and inviting.
I simply positioned each thrifted doll chair at the individual windows and then scattered used kitchen bottles with the fresh-cut flowers from the farmstand for a soft late summer vibe.
One small white pumpkin rests on each doll chair, welcoming in the cooler temperatures with Autumn’s arrival.
Aren’t these thrifted doll chairs just adorable?

The ocean scenery in Rockland, Maine where we stayed was just beautiful. And there were so many antique shops in this area that I just wasn’t able to get to while we were visiting. This gives me a perfect excuse to get back that way sometime this fall!

As summer is winding down we’ll be getting ready to head back to our home in Vermont soon. There’s nothing like spending time in Vermont in the fall. Check out last year’s Cozy Vermont Fall Sunroom with white pumpkins.
Each doll chair measures 15″ tall, which I find interesting, as all four chairs are very different.

I am curious about your thrifted chairs. What did each chair cost? The green one looks like an antique. If you found it in a thrift shop or at a thrifty price, that is indeed a find! And perfect for displaying your white pumpkins.
I think three are reproductions and the light green one is definitely vintage. They were all different prices from $22-$28. So not really thrifted and they were in an antique store. But to get them all at the same time was what inspired me🙌🏻🪑
I love the use of the doll chairs. I recently picked up one while thrifting with the Gals!
Thank you Rachel. You did? How did I miss that???💁🏼♀️
