Fall decor is showing up all over blogland. It is making me feel rather behind the times. For one, I’m still a little in denial that Summer is over already. Also, I really haven’t had time to do a lot of ‘fluffing’ lately. And I don’t really go all out for fall decor anyway. But I do have a few acorns I get out in the fall. And I have some lovely dried Hydrangea this year 🙂 On Saturday I did get at some desperately needed cleaning and while I was at it I put away the white faux flowers I had in old bottles and got out the faux acorns! It is fun how just some simple touches can totally change the look and feel of decor.
I’ve had this acorn for years. It found a spot this year in this sweet little scalloped dish. The dish is new to me – remember I said I forgot our anniversary? Travis and I did go out later that week! He took me to a restaurant I absolutely love and don’t get to go to very often. In fact he usually cringes when I mention the name La Piazza!! It is expensive but the food is awesome. So he took me there and then on the way home he stopped at the local antique shop right in our little town and I found this footed dish and liked it so he bought it for me! It was less than $5 so that made up for the very-much-more-than $5 dinner we had!
It’s such a simple thing but that’s ok with me!
I have contemplated doing something different here with the curtains but haven’t been struck with the exact thing I should do. Any suggestions?
This little wood nut is a fun piece to pop in for a touch of fall.
I like using old postcards turned to the back side with the old beautiful writing showing. And this branch storage box is another fun fall accent.
And of course my beloved typewriter! I want to put some fun old paper in it but haven’t taken the time to dig out just the right thing.
Dried Hydrangea and old croquet balls.
More dried Hydrangea stuck in a pot that was already there. This whole shelf is in dire need of a complete makeover. I’ve been using it to store all the cool old frames I’ve happened upon this summer and it now looks like a storage shelf instead of a shelf in a living room that holds decor.
And a little vignette I put on a cake stand in the center of the dining room table. It looked great Sat. night and Sunday morning. Till last night the table was covered with The Teenagers craft project, a stack of clothes my hubby decided to get rid of, my camera, and a laptop. This morning found me adding my laptop and some paperwork to the mix so when I snapped these photos I decided you really didn’t want to see the whole table 😉 So I cropped it all out – just for you!
Is your house decorated for fall?
