Oh wow, has this been a busy few months! Here I am nearly into November, and I haven't shared our Autumn decorations yet!
Fall is my favorite season, and I LOVE decorating for it! If I were to overrun my "one bin per season" rule, it would be for right now. There's something so wonderful about the not-too-hot, not-too-cold weather, with the bright colors, bonfires, crispy crunchy walking paths, and clear skies. And our house takes on a wonderful, warm look for the season too!
Our front door, fireplace, kitchen cabinet-niche, chandelier & the space above our bookshelves have all stayed the same from year to year. We DID have some fun rearranging things and picking up just a few new decorations however.
The sewing table has moved right next to our front door, making it a perfect place to display a few of our favorite things. On the top, we created a back-to-school display showcasing our McGuffy reader and a few other favorite goodies that make us think of school.
Above the sewing table is the biggest grapevine wreath I've ever made, with the Victorian cone I made from last year tucked inside.
On the hutch, most of our decorations have stayed the same, we've
just rearranged things. One piece I did pick up was an amber glass
pumpkin cookie jar. For as long as I can remember, my mom has had a
clear one just like this, and I have always wished it was orange. When I
saw this sitting at the thrift store for less than $2 I HAD to pick it
up and bring it home.
Happy Autumn everyone! What have you done to decorate your space?!?
