Sunday afternoon, it was an overcast day with rain showers occasionally throughout the day and even a little bit cooler. It had the look of fall, just looking out the window, (if you know what I mean). It gave me that feeling of wanting to be inside all snug and cozy. Therefore, it was the perfect day for putting out the few hints of autumn decor that I have. I really don't have that much in the way of fall decor, but just having simple touches of fall here and there makes me happy.
I think a stop into Hobby Lobby for a few more berry and leaf picks and twigs is in order because it really is a simple, inexpensive way to add touches of fall and I keep finding places that could use just that touch. But for now, here's a little tour of the hints of fall decor around our home.
In the living room:
I usually begin with the fireplace and go from there.....
Just a little touch to the crock in the crates..
The piano just got a little vine of colorful flowers across the top and Mr. Scarecrow stands guard on the shelf above.
That's my beloved win from Colleen's giveaway last year on my makedo picnic basket table between the recliners. That little arrangement is so perky! I just love it...makes me smile thinking Colleen made it!
A little bit to the cedar chest coffee table....Dawn made me those sunflower ornies...I love those!
On the end table by the couch....I have a fall stitchery to put here but it's not tea stained yet, but I'll show that to you when it's done! For now, "Welcome" is always nice! :)
And just a little fall touch to the little blue wagon with another scarecrow...
In the dining room:
A little closer look....tucked in the basket is just a little scarecrow and some leaves.
I just added a few leaves to the berries in the crock.
The swan was just adorned with a few berries around the neck.
This little basket is siting on the hutch (I didn't get a full shot because Jason's stuff was in the way). I'll have to get a full shot when he's not home with his computer and work stuff sitting there!
And on the dining room table....a wooden bowl of harvest bounty:
In the kitchen:
To my stove, I only added some leaves to the bowl on top and the fall dish cloth to the handle of the oven.
A little closer look:
Just a tiny hint of fall with the berries on the prim bowl rack...
This is the pass-through above the sink from the kitchen to the dining room. I just added a little harvest to the bowl.
My beloved stepback cupboard received just a few touches as well..
On the side of it:
On top of it in the crock:
And inside, more berries in the bowl...
I'd like to do something a little different here, but for now, this was all I had. Who knows, it may change tomorrow! :)
Just a few berries....am I boring you with my berries yet?
And in the breakfast nook, on the kitchen table:
A few apples on the kitchen counter:
I haven't done any outside fall decorating yet, so that will have to be a different post. Again, I usually just do very little on the front porch and maybe a touch near the carport out back. I think a visit to our local nursery for some pumpkins and mums will be in order soon!
I've really enjoyed all the fall decorating and fall recipes! Don't you just love this time of year? It seems, here in the south anyway, that it sometimes jumps straight from summer into winter weather. So, I'm really hoping for a season of autumn weather....my favorite season!
Thanks for stopping by! If I haven't stopped by to "see" you lately, I hope to get there this week! Have a wonderful day!
