Decked out for autumn

Hello again,

I am so happy you stopped by. Let's enjoy the fall day.

Today, I would like to share with you how I added a touch of fall in my living area.  

Pumpkins are the first thing that came to mind why thinking about fall.

Have you noticed there are so many styles to choose from?


and so many


Not to mention

styles again

How does one decide?

Nothing says fall like a few pumpkins. I chose mini orange pumpkins, layered a white glass tray with my mini pumpkins and added a green moss ball.  My inspiration is my trunk.

I knew I wanted to use my recent thrift store grey throw. 
I'm obsessed with shades of of grey and white.

  Just a little grey fall like inspiration!

 Ready to see how it's styled ?

Check out my trunk.
I waited for the second markdown.
  Guess I am a risk taker,
 and this time it worked.
  I still  can't  believe 

I never get tired of talking
 about this trunk.  Love, love, love! 
Can't  you see why?

A storage  unit
A coffee table

Great throw for these fall nites.

Perfect size for  my clock table.  

Ok, grey pumpkins?
 Remember, I love grey.

It was so easy to style this space.
It looks like fall to me.

Gathering table


C'mon in and have a seat at the gathering table.  Pull your seat closer and take a view of my table all dressed and ready for fall.  You may rest your elbows on the table today.  Remember, today only.

My inspiration started with my animal print table runner.  It's a 60 inch piece of cloth folded twice to get the look.  Isn't it just gorgeous?

Hope you wont mind if the pics do the talking as they spell FALL.

 It's time for a closer view.

shades of brown, rustic = FALL 

tree branches = FALL

candle holders and candles = FALL

twigs = FALL

leaves, leaves and more leaves = FALL  


wreaths = FALL


This is fall at the Houz.

Thanks for stopping by.

Perfect for fall

Hello friends
Hello September

Writing this as I look forward  to waving goodbye to summer.  So here I am today, ushering fall in a few weeks earlier with touches of fall decor.

I don't  recall as a child seeing a lot of fall decoration. 

My side table is the perfect place to showcase a fall table setting.  

To get the green look that I had in mind for the fall,  I chose to accessorize with green apples. 
I'm  loving this fall style with shades of orange.

Crystal candle holders are a fav of mine.
  To be honest, I love decorating with candlesticks whether 
they are crystal, brass, silver or gold.  

Perfect for fall

I couldn't  resist these leaves I 
purchased several years ago.

What is fall without a pumpkin.

What I love about fall is the
 and colors of leaves.

Hope you were inspired by my fall touches.
that's it Houz friends.
