I am a traditional Fall color girl. I love the reds, oranges, and yellows of Fall. They are my favorite colors in the whole world and I love how God paints the landscape with them this time of year!

Of course, that has put me in the decorating mood. I put out an early Fall/late Summer look at the farm:
Of course, the city house also needed its share of Fall splendor. I started with the buffet, adding a Fall pitcher with leaves, a mercury glass owl, some bronzed faux fruit, and put my little squirrel in the birdcage. Don't worry, he's not trapped - I left the door ajar:
Then I decorated the dining room table...did I mention how happy I am to have that space back as a dining room? I love my art/craft studio being in the spare bedroom so we can sit and dine in this room:
Autumn garland down the middle with my small glass pumpkins, red mercury glass candle holders, and large metal pumpkin on my Fall plaid tablecloth.

Moving to my entry table, I added more glass pumpkins, garland, pumpkin-shaped plates, and a couple of small scarecrows:
The old antique radio also got some Fall bling:
With cooler weather headed our way, I'm looking forward to getting some painting projects done...
The dining room table finish is shot (thank goodness for tablecloths!) so it is high on the list, as well as breakfast room paint touch-ups, and various wood signs.
So what's on your list of Fall projects? And do you like the traditional Fall colors or more muted ones? (I have loved seeing all of those in blogy-land! Maybe someday I will try it.)
Have a wonderful weekend and a very Happy Fall, Y'all!
Hugs and blessings,
