A Touch of Fall

Howdy, Peeps!
I'm just sharing a little of my fall decor today...
in hopes that maybe summer will finally get tired of hanging around...
and it will cool down some.

A lot of my decorations are the same...
so you may have seen them on last year's tour.
Sometimes I move things around and occasionally add new items.

The little mouse hanging on the side of the wire
cloche is new, but not really a fall accessory.
Just a bit of whimsy.

Oops, it appears my "slipcover" is riding up.
Pardon me!

I added a little printable banner to the chunky shelf.

Other things got moved around...and now some
orange candles glow here on a side table.

I love putting little pumpkins in this big lantern.
I rarely light the candles that are normally in it anyway.

One major difference this year...I got the dresser painted last winter!
I am loving it...and it looks so cozy and warm over there.

I know some people like to decorate for fall with neutrals and white pumpkins...

...let them, I say...I will keep the things I love about fall...
the warm, rich colors that evoke thoughts of falling leaves and
crunching through cornfields on a cool autumn night bundled up for a hayride!

Ooooh...and hot apple cider and pumpkin bread...and caramel apples...

Aaaahhhh...I feel refreshed already.
Take that, summer!

I found this cute pom pom garland on clearance this past weekend.
So fun! I knew I had to add it to the mix.

Some time this past year, I spray painted the shutters...
they were bright white and chippy...but too white.
Now they are more subdued...and you can still see
the chippy-ness beneath the thin coat of paint.

Warm, rich, cozy...
I think it's time for some of that cider.

I hope you've enjoyed this little jaunt into fall.

If you pretend not to notice the dust on my black tables...
I'll pretend to feel really bad about its existence.

I have a Halloween-ish treat coming up next,
so don't forget to check back with me soon!
Have a great weekend.
