Don’t you just LOVE my new Ms Pumpkin Head? I do! A little outing this past week to TJ Max scored this baby! I told myself I’m not doing much for FALL DECOR as it is our year to do Christmas NOT Thanksgiving so the Christmas decorating will begin early & be intense.
It’s still HOT here in Texas so to get into the mood for FALL is difficult! It’s not still 105 degree’s but, 90 something just doesn’t feel like FALL either. Yet, I needed a little “FIX” in decor so AWAY went all the shells & mermaids. Out came some of the FALL goodies.
Above you can see the fireplace in my living room (that we just had refinished during our big bathroom remodel). While we had the tile guys working in the bathroom they tore off the old builders white tile & I had them put up this beautiful white stone. LOVE IT! The fireplace vents to the back so we don’t have a typical mantel. Instead a big shelf that I always like to add pretties to sits above the fireplace. And a pretty fan shaped window to bring in the light.
A pumpkin filled with FALL colored flowers…
A few velvet pumpkins (I want to try my hand at making some of these. Have any of you tried it yet?) again found on my TJ Max trip… I’m thinking I need a piece of burlap crumpled under there so I don’t have such a plain/shinny surface under the pumpkin. What do you think?
I love the vintage red glass Martini Shaker Hubby & I found in an Antique Shop near Houston. My friend JoAnn gave me that pretty red cut crystal decanter. It makes me think of her every time I see it.
Not much Halloween (although I LOVE it) this year but, who can pass up on of my favorite cards (above) by Susan Wheeler framed & always making me smile.
BEST FRIENDS another card sits on my counter by the kitchen that always makes me laugh (JoAnn made that for me too).
I love my witch silhouette sitting between the living area & kitchen. This photo is taken looking into the kitchen where you see my plate stand sitting behind her. At night she is so cute with the flickering candle lit in her lantern.
Happy Haunting her cone says…
Up on top of the refrigerator is a little vignette that says “AUTUMN” spelled out in Scrabble tiles. Does anyone else like to use these other than me? A tea pot all crackled & crazed dated many years ago & sold by SEARS. My Daddy (&Hubby) worked for Sears for many years so this is just sort of an old time feel good. Vintage hotel silver tea pot found last year at one of the Flea Markets in California. Another pumpkin filled with flowers, a vintage oil lamp (I LOVE the fluted globe on this one) ^ a beautiful “Autumn” metal plate that I won in a give away years ago from Nan.
Our little breakfast table with the vintage buffet. The table was from my Grandmothers days of living on the farm in Iowa where my Daddy was born & raised. One of my most precious pieces because of the “history” & stories. Oh how I loved them both (Grandma Zella & Daddy & how I miss them so….). The picture above the buffet is a print we brought back from North Carolina. We love the Autumn color along the Snake River there.
Last but, not least the beautiful silver tray found at Vignette's Antique Shop during Kim’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s Art Event. I LOVE that tray & wish I’d bought more. The glass pumpkins were from a gallery in Asheville, N.C. that hubby & I both adore. Hope you liked the little tour of Fall here in my home. I am enjoying the change. Have you decorated for fall? Leave me a comment & I’ll come visit you too.
