It’s finally my favorite time of the year: FALL.
I love the the color changing of the leaves, the smell of leaves burning, the feel of the cool air when wearing my sweaters, scarves, and boots. It’s the best time of the year.
I also love all the colors associated with fall. All the browns, reds, yellows, and greens. This season practically screams my name. I’ve accumulated some fall decor through the years and plan on seeking out more to fill my house with! I’ve definitely got the living room down to a fine art though. Just looking for more items (on sale at the end of the year) to decorate my dining room table as well.
This year has been great because Eric has found several decor items at yard sales. The two huge bushels by the fireplace and the pumpkins on top of the mantel were both yard sale finds. The two candle fixtures I have were both Better Homes and Gardens from Wal-Mart last year on sale. Can’t beat that!
I used my existing serving tray from another yard sale trip and added my candle fixture along with fake leaves. Simple but elegant.
On the small table I used my existing flower vase / jug to include some fall flowers that I’ve gathered over the years.
Also, what home is complete without fall exploding from your front door? I have very little Halloween decor as spiders, zombies, and half fingers and limbs really creep me out. But my little witch wreath on the front is what I’ll consider my recognition of Halloween. 🙂 Eric informs me that we will be purchasing Halloween decor this year but I my limitations (all things gross and scary).
I was lucky to find such festive followers at the Lowe’s Home Improvement store by our house. They added the perfect touch of fall.
I love these finishing touches. Including my wooden pumpkin sign.
This is the best time of the year and it reminds me that I’m only a few months away from Christmas. How is it already almost Christmas again!!
Have you put up your fall decorations yet?
