Fall is my favorite time of the year so living in the Northeast I truly get to enjoy it all. I don't know about you, but I can't get enough of this cooler weather. I love the rich colors of autumn, pumpkins and the sweet scent of chrysanthemums. If I had my way, I would make it last year-round!
Each year I tend to 'push the envelope' when it comes to autumn decorating. As soon as the calendar rolls over to September I'm already thinking about it. So please come in and make yourself at home as we welcome fall.
I've had my eye out for a vintage scale for a while now. Nothing seemed to be the look I wanted until I came across this one by Pelouze. I would date this piece around 1903 and it has a wonderful patina. Doesn't it look so vintage holding a bowl of pumpkins?
White pumpkins seem to have caught my eye this year. Do you favor white pumpkins or the traditional orange style?
I've mixed them to fill a Shabby Chic wrought iron basket. I love the farmhouse look with the chippy paint. As you can see I have quite a little punkin' patch growing ... lol.
A warty green and yellow gourd stands out from the crowd ...
This year I expanded on my love for mercury glass and decided to decorate the top of the entertainment center. The antique and champagne finishes create an enchanting display of light and reflection. The monotone color is perfect for the parlor.
While I was going through my boxes I came across some birch candles from last year. I knew right away they would add to the organic and natural appeal I was looking for.
I love the soft glow from the illuminated white lights. It adds a little sparkle!
A mercury glass bowl is a wonderful backdrop to a grouping of fresh white pumpkins. A crow adds a little eeriness to the vignette.
Simplicity with a little bling ...
I just adore this cream lantern with burlap and a berry wreath. Surrounded with white pumpkins gives it a classic look.
It has such a pretty top ...
An autumn scented candle to enjoy during dinner.
Yup, crows have found their way inside this year. These two have perched on my chandelier. My kitty Cheops isn't sure what to make of them :-)
A wreath with puffy, orange pods of Chinese lanterns hangs above my cooktop.
Pumpkin candles, Indian corn and a fall basket decorate the shelf in the kitchen.
These white dangling Chinese lanterns fill a silver pitcher and will look great until Thanksgiving.
I hope you have enjoyed some of my autumn decorations. Please do stop back to view my outside decor as the gazebo is ready for autumn. I will also have a simple craft project to share with you.
