Fall and Happy Times

I did it; I caved in and pulled out my Fall decor yesterday. What can I say? I love Fall and I needed to do some serious dusting so why not switch out the decorations while I was at it? Ha.

I've had these glass pumpkins forever - 1 large and 2 small. My twin sis gave them to many years ago. She bought them from Target.
 I love how the candle light glows through the glass! I also added my owls - this mercury glass one is a favorite:
Then I added sunflowers and Fall leaves to my galvanized flower bucket on the buffet:
On the table, I added 3 more glass pumpkins I got shortly after my sister gave me the others. I placed them in a woven basket casserole carrier:
For my place settings, I used my red plates from Pier 1 on my woodland chargers, adding these cute squirrel salad plates (also from Pier 1):
Isn't he just the cutest thing ever?

The farmhouse also got a dose of Fall. A big shout out to my friend, Mira, who helped me get the living room looking the way I wanted. She and I went to Canton Market Days as well. It was hot but we had a blast! I didn't buy a whole lot this time although I did find some gifts. However, I'll share all that in another post.

The most exciting thing to happen this past weekend though? If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook then you know already! My daughter got engaged! We are so thrilled. Her guy is the sweetest ever. We are so happy for them. And I haven't quit smiling yet. :o)
Engagement party!
We're going to have a busy year getting everything ready but it should be fun. It will mean lots of projects!

How was your Labor Day weekend?

    1. It's so exciting, KariAnne!!!! Now I just need to not go overboard haha! They are too cute. It's going to be fun.

      I love that owl too but then I'm a sucker for Mercury glass! I'd love to get some of the Mercury glass pumpkins but storage might be an issue. Heh.

  8. hi Cecilia ... love your Fall decorations ... you have inspired me to get up in the attic and bring some "Fall" into the house. I love the amber glass pumpkins. Hope I did not get rid of mine. So happy about the upcoming wedding ... you will have a blast helping with that.

  9. OMG!!! That's so wonderful Cecilia! I'm so happy for you and your lovely daughter!

    I had to laugh when I read the first few sentences of your post. I took out some autumn accessories on Monday too! We were having friends over for pizza and you know what that means...cleaning...and you know what that means...changing things up! lol


  10. Cecilia, our Labor Day weekend wasn't nearly as exciting as yours. I love your decorations and the news about your daughter. :)

  11. Congratulations! How fun. I adore your glass pumpkins. Too fun.

  12. Oh, congratulations to the newly engaged couple! Cecilia, you must be SO excited that your daughter is getting married to a great guy! Have fun getting everything ready for the wedding...oh, what fun it is going to be! Who doesn't love weddings...{{sigh}}
    I cannot believe how long it has been since I stopped by...I have missed it!
    I love your Fall decorations...such a splendid time of year and I think it is so lovely that you found beautiful things to make your home so Autumn-y! {{smiles}}
