Come on in! I’ve been slowly taking down all of the “summer stuff” in my house and redecorating for fall. Every year I do a little less, and if you’ve been reading my blog for long, then you know I’ve always kept things pretty simple.
I like the seasons to be represented in some way throughout the year, though, so starting in September I bring out the orange pillows and throws, a few mercury glass pumpkins and gnarly yellow gourds, and I start feeling a little better about leaving summer behind…
I’m always rearranging my mantel and playing with the stuff on it. Here’s how it looks today, with some of my orange pottery and a few little pumpkins. (Layla’s having a mantel decorating party at The Lettered Cottage if you need more inspiration for yours!)
Can you tell I like symmetry? Is that the sign of a total control freak? (You don’t have to answer that!)
The little sugar and creamer set on my turquoise chest (above) are old family heirlooms brought over from Germany by my husband’s great grandparents. Love ’em.
So that’s how things are looking around here these days. I’m (almost) ready for cooler weather now.
Now it’s your turn to show us how you celebrate autumn around your house! Enter the permalink to your post below:
