Hints of Autumn

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!

Everything looks awesome, Tammy! Your "little touches" are great and have big impact! I love this time of year, but will wiat until the end of the month to decorate.

We are trying to concentrate on the custody hearing. It is two weeks form today. We want this over so badly, and in our favor, of course.

Hope you have a wonderful week, sweet friend!

Nice touches Tammy. Sometimes just a little goes a long way and your touches pack a nice punch of fall throughout your home. I love the smell and feel of fall. The colors couldn't be more beautiful. I purchased all my mums this weekend and they really put me in the mood to decorate my outside.
Have a great week,
AMY

Awww, everything looks beautiful. I need to hit the local Nursery for Pumpkins and Mums. I usually put up a large scarecrow in front of some hay bales and set potted mums all around them.
Can't wait to see your outsie decorations.

Such lovely touches of fall, Tammy! And how fun to see my arrangement on display again :) I'm glad you're still enjoying it...

Fall is most definitely on the immediate horizon here in Maine. We're expecting a high of 60º tomorrow. I can't wait!

Now if I could only get to my fall decorating...

And you said you just had a few decorations!

I think it all looks so country and so fabulous.

I loved the old wooden spoons in the crock, too. It seems I always break mine before they get old!

I love the fall touches. Everything is perfectly placed. Fall is definitely in the air this evening. It's getting quite chilly outside. Great isn't it?

Have a wonderful evening.

Walking on Sunshine... said...

I love everything! When I got some of my decorations out it was also a rainy day with the temps a little lower. Perfect weather for putting the fall things out.

I love the shutters by your fireplace! I've seen them in the stores but never knew what to do with them. You've given me some ideas!!

Thanks!

Zaroga said...

Love the fall decor, Tammy. Yes a touch of fall is here. The light is changing, the leaves are changing and falling. I did buy a wreath for my door. I also found some garden mums in colors I like. That will probably be all that I do.

Dawn said...

Tammy, the home looks all warm and cozy for some crisp fall days. I too love fall and all the cool temps it brings. My homes colors is great for fall decor. I loved looking through your pics and finding how you used the sunflowers I made for you! It warmed my heart, glad you are enjoying them.

Hi Tammy~ All of your little fall touches are just beautiful and festive! You've got so many great pieces of furniture... I love that blue buffet and the dry sink stand, love it! Your stepback cupboard of course and also the make~do basket table. I've got one of those too! :)
So glad you made the best of a rainy day. Hope fall colors reach your part of the south soon.

Thank you for sharing all of your beautiful decor. I really did like the 2 baskets between the chair that was so neat.
God bless.

Love your displays Ü

Yes it's hard to believe that Brittany is 16. She actually works at Coltons as a hostess. I know Colt works there ,but I didn't know if he had mention Brittany working there or not.

Yes the food was wonderful at the reunion(I probably gained 10lbs). There is alot of talent in that family and I wish they were closer to share it with us.


We are having revival kick off tomorrow at Church of God with Rev. Phil Daniels. It goes thru Wednesday night, maybe yall could come one night.

~~Karen~~

Amber said...

Oh my goodness! What lovely pictures to look at! I love the red stepboard cupboard and the blue side table! I love the pile of books tied up loosely with twine. You have so many nice arrangements in your home!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I just found your blog but I was amazed looking at these photos at how many things we have in common! We really like to decorate alike and I did have a fireplace that looked just like that! Love your blog!

Kindred Sisters said...

Thanks for the Fall decorating inspiration! Our fireplace, in particular, needs a Fall makeover!

Warm regards,

Mary
