It's Time To Decorate For Fall, Y'all!

I am so excited! It's that time again! To pull out the Fall decorations and make everything look all Autumn-y (is that a word? It should be). (And I'm sorry, all my northern friends, but I am glad it's here!)


 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!

Last year's leaf color
We still have plenty of warm weather left here in Texas, but we've already had some hints of cooler weather to come and RAIN!! hurray!

Of course, that has put me in the decorating mood. I put out an early Fall/late Summer look at the farm:
 I love this little scarecrow, although I think he needs a different color of coat - like a red plaid. :o)


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.
Leaf plates from Pier One - I love these! Red plates also from Pier One and the leaf charger from Wal-Mart
Glass with metal accent pumpkin


Moving to my entry table, I added more glass pumpkins, garland, pumpkin-shaped plates, and a couple of small scarecrows:
These pumpkins have an opening in the back for a tea light. I'm using battery-operated ones as they get really hot with a real candle inside.

The old antique radio also got some Fall bling:
More owls (I love owls...I started collecting them long before they became popular...now they are easier to find. LOL), more Fall foliage, and a wood pumpkin I made by layering pieces of fence pickets. Ah, Fall! How I love thee!

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,
Cecilia

  2. It all looks just darling- all your bits and pieces of Fall have FALLen into place beautifully. That shot from last year of the lane with the color changes is gorgeous. I hope to get my Fall stuff out this weekend. I am behind this year (again). xo Diana

    1. Hi, Diana! Good to hear from you! Thanks for stopping in. :) I love the picture of my driveway with the trees in their Fall finery too! I'm hoping our Fall color is as pretty this year. We'll see! Good luck with getting yours done!
      Hugs!

  3. Love all your fall decor! It's my favorite time of the year...although it is my most miserable time of the year! I've been up since 2 a.m. battling my allergies. Your fall decorating has me itching to get started on mine...maybe soon! Have a blessed weekend....Vicky

  4. Cecilia ... your Fall decorations are so interesting. We are having cooler weather and a little rain yesterday, so maybe I will get inspired to get busy with decoration. Being in the middle of a big remodel in the master bath is keeping me pretty busy, so we will see. Thanks for the inspiration ... love your glass pumpkins.

    1. Those pumpkins were a find! I love them too. Yikes! If I were remodeling, I don't think I'd be decorating until it was done. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Don't you just love Pier 1? I think their stuff is far more interesting than HomeGoods, albeit more pricey. :/

    Lovely vignettes Cecilia, although I would expect nothing less!

    1. Oh yes, I adore Pier One but they are pricey. I usually wait for sales but not for those leaf plates!
      Thanks, Doreen. You are the sweetest!

  8. I saw the beautiful picture you did for Suzan and I was wondering, just wondering if you do artwork such as this for others, who share a similar need.......you see, our Rusty has been diagnosed with cancer, and while he is doing okay, I know what the future holds, and I was thinking that for my husband a portrait of Rusty would be a forever treasure of a forever friend who found his forever home in our hearts. Please let me know the details. Peaceful Blessings! Nanny
