Fall is slowly arriving…both in Georgia and at my house! I think we may actually have time to enjoy it this year, instead of jumping from summer straight into winter as it does sometimes. And I love fall decor because I get to enjoy it from September through November!
You are greeted by this vignette when you enter…a pumpkin basket from Hobby Lobby filled with faux pumpkins, my Pottery Barn knock-off Indian corn candle holder and a silver tray with pumpkins and a homemade cinnamon stick candle.
Another cinnamon stick candle and a pumpkin greet you with a frenchy Bonjour from the little half wall in the foyer.
On the vintage drop leaf table behind the sofa you’ll find my latest thrifting find…this wonderful rooster vase from my favorite flea and antique market…a real bargain at only $10. I saw it online for $100 and on sale for $85. Woo hoo! It is made by the same company as a rooster vase that I have long loved in one of Charles Faudee’s books….but on a smaller scale and a better fit for my house. Those are my Country Living inspired découpage pumpkins beside it.
I’ve added a few white pumpkins to my vintage silver plate tea set for a simple hint of fall. I love the contrast!
A vine pumpkin topped by a fall arrangement and a tiger striped pumpkin bring a little fall to the demi-lune table.
My Pottery Barn inspired fall mantel is much the same as last year, but with one exception…I used vine pumpkins in the urns instead of the real orange ones. It’s a little more subtle, I think.
My little frenchy boy is standing guard over a vintage book bundle topped by another baby pumpkin.
In the hallway, a wreath decorates the shabby French mirror…a $2.00 Goodwill find I have been saving since summer.
And below it on the shabby table you’ll find this vignette…an urn painted with an Anduze-style finish topped with another vine pumpkin, a structural topiary frame and vintage books topped by a white pumpkin.
And on the back door, the always-present eucalyptus wreath…a Goodwill bargain…is sporting a faux orange pumpkin as a sign of the season. I am saving the front porch and a few other fall touches for another post.
But here’s my favorite sign that fall has arrived...my ginger lilies are blooming again! The blooms are not as abundant this year due to the drought, but the blooms that I do have smell as sweet as ever! And now I am doing my twilight walks around the house in search of their companion…the hummingbird moth. (See last year’s post where I actually photographed one!) Ahhhh…fall! My favorite season is arriving at last!
