Like everyone else I absolutely LOVE Fall! I love the crispness in the air, I love the pumpkins everywhere, I love the colors, I love the decorations! Fall is exciting, there's anticipation in the air that good things are coming!
For the fun of it I thought I'd share my Fall decorating with you. I don't have my pumpkins outside yet (gasp!) so today's tour is just of the inside of my home. Prepare yourself for an overload of pictures! Cheers to Fall!
I just love a good stack of vintage books worked into my decorations. These were my grandma's (not the grandma in this picture, though).
My shelves on either side of the fireplace are tricky for me when it comes to decorating. They are so big, so deep and so dark. So 'oak', too. :)
I made this 'Boo' set of frames from scrapbooking paper a couple years ago. Still like how they turned out.
This chicken is from my grandma's collection. I love the 'Fallness' of it!
I found this leaf garland at Menards of all places! Super inexpensive and it totally did the trick for completing the Fall look on my mantle!
The other side of the fireplace. The diapers don't scream "Fall" but they are in a handy place for me so there they stay. :)
We love seasonal books! Tate has commandeered quit a few of our Fall and Halloween books so the stack looks pretty puny right now. :) Some of our favorite Halloween books are "Pumpkin Soup", "A Halloween Scare in Iowa", "Ten Timid Ghosts", "The Runaway Pumpkin", and "The Pumpkinville Mystery".
Something simple for in front of the TV. (Ignore the construction dust!!!)
I love decorating the top of the piano!
Andy built me a shelf above our fridge, it's been a challenge for me to decorate but it is the perfect depth and height for this Jack-o-lantern. I love that I can have lights up there, it looks pretty in the evenings with the glow coming from up there.
This little scarecrow has been with me since the first Fall after we got married. I bought it on clearance during our town's June festival called Ridiculous Days and have loved it ever since! He's been with us through all three of our homes!
After Halloween is over I'll swap a few things out for my Thanksgiving decorations which helps freshen things up after having my Fall stuff out for 2 months already by then. I hope you liked the little tour and it put you in a festive mood!
If you have any suggestions on how I can improve those giant built-in's beside the fireplace please share!
Happy Fall, y'all! :)
