Most of my decorations are very simple small touches added here and there for a sprinkle of autumn. And as I put them out, I realized just how many things have come from blogging friends! That makes them all the more special to me. :)
Come along and I’ll show you around. Some of the photos were taken very early in the morning before the sun came up so they’re a little dark. Others were later after the sun came up.
Are you ready? We’ll begin with the kitchen.
I used a little touch of bittersweet here and there. That’s such a small thing that really says fall. Linda of Parker’s Paradise sent me a big bunch of bittersweet a year or so ago. I saved it in a ziploc bag and it kept very well.
Those blocks in the window sill were made by Mandy.
I love decorating this piece because as you know it’s one of my very favorite pieces of furniture!
I always keep my kitchen centerpiece simple. The wooden bowl fillers came from Colleen and Dawn.
Next we’ll go to the dining room.
A lot of the touches in here came from Dollar Tree and Hobby Lobby.
From the dining room looking into the kitchen....
Next we’ll go to the living room. I leave my Americana up year round and just incorporate seasonal decor into it.
Another favorite spot to decorate is the crates beside the fireside chair. See those little blocks at the top? Those were part of the giveaway from Sandi. Aren’t they cute? I just love those.
Here’s a closer look.
Here’s the fireplace hearth.
Here’s the entire fireplace. I’m not particularly satisfied with the mantle. I’d like to add two real pumpkins on each end in place of those birdhouses, but I haven’t been able to get pumpkins yet here. They tell me at the market that they’ll have them in about 3 days. So I'll be adding those.
I love the lamplight with the fall décor. Don't you just love the rich colors of fall? The fall flower arrangement came from Colleen and the pumpkin came from Gina!
And I really love these woolie apples from Trace!
More pumpkins from Gina.
If only my staircase were complete, I’d show you the entire foyer. That’s where the scarecrow Sandi made is displayed. It is hanging on the foyer closet doorknob. I’ll spare you the stripped down door frame though.
I haven't done much outside. I usually keep it just as simple. I'm waiting on those pumpkins! Maybe I'll come back and share that on another day.
Fall is most definitely my favorite season because I'm not counting Christmas as a season. But Christmas is my favorite holiday. I think I enjoy the fall decor almost as much. I just love the rich colors of fall!
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my simple autumn decor. I'm looking forward to touring your homes too to enjoy more fall decor!
I'd like to invite you to join me for Pinned it Made it Monday. I hope to have that post ready for linking up by Sunday evening.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend! :)
