It’s starting to look a lot . . .

October 19, 2009

like autumn. I just love all everything about autumn: the wild wind, the changing leaves, baking with pumpkin and apples, and pulling out the sweaters and boots. And, as you may know if you’ve been reading this blog for a while (or know me), I love decorating with natural elements. Here’s my autumn decorations this year.


My dining room table centerpiece.


Leaves and gourds grace my little shelf by the backdoor.



“Tablescape” in the living room. That little twig pumpkin was something my mom picked up for me from the $1 section at Target a few years ago.


Love my vanilla scented potpourri.


This really has nothing to do with autumn decor. But this basket used to hold music until I stained some old milk crates for that purpose instead. Decided this basket was too nice for just holding music. It now sits on my coffee table.


Love my little lantern I got from Ikea a while back.

Don’t let autumn pass you by without bringing a little of it indoors to brighten your day. Now if I only had some warm apple cider  . . .

    Love it…you just gave me a few ideas!

    I think I may pull out my IKEA lantern (it’s silver) and see if I can spray paint it a dark brown or black and remove the panes.

    I’m also reminded of your “thankful leaves” post from last year. One of these sunshiny mornings I want to collect some pretty leaves with Natalia and dip them in some parafin.

    Danielle, you have such a marvellous eye for decorating, no one would ever guess you house two little climbers! Teach me, Obi-wan…
    Yummy and easy apple “cider” = apple juice heated on the stove with a cinnamon stick. Yummy drink and yummy-smelling house in one go. Works for us, anyway.

    Love it!!! So pretty! I love fall too but I am such a mess this year. All I have is the pumpkins the kids picked up….Jude so thoughtfully adorned the fireplace with the mini ones and they look great….somehow the big pumpkin is under the dining room table on its side. I don’t even want to know they were probably playing soccer or something with it. That sums up my life lately all a bit chaotic. Hoping to be caught up enough to pull the Christmas decorations out. Right now it is all about survival.

    I am loving your lovely decorations though. I am gonna grab a coffee and sip it in front of the computer pretending I am in your lovely house adoring fall with you. Thanks for sharing.

      Bethany, wish you could come for coffee and visit for REAL! 🙂 But since you can’t, come for as many virtual visits as you want! 😉
