Fall displays 1, 2, 3

It has been a bit of a Fall decor extravaganza around here, as I put away all the seashells, rocks and other summer decor….onto fall we go.

1. First off, I started with my home’s front interior entrance.


A bunch of pretty faux flowers, some pinecones and decorative gemstones to hide the stems, add in a few mini pumpkins and VOILA…done.  After I finished I realized how great my new purse, that I purchased in Toronto, would work with the colours, so….in it went.

2. Then I moved onto the kitchen and placed  some of those adorable little white and orange pumpkins (just bought at the grocery store) into a wood dish that I already had.  This takes about three seconds to do and another bonus with these little pumpkins is that you don’t have to store them at the end of the season :-).


3. Then moving on to my cottage, here’s my Thanksgiving table centerpiece.

So easy to do, a burlap runner, large wicker tray, faux fall leaf garland, twig ball, pinecones and mini pumpkins.  Then just let your creativity loose.

Later this week, exterior fall displays and….. where did I put my Blogpodium winnings?

Falling for Fall

Fall has always been my favourite time of the year.  Let me count the ways….

1.  The crisp, clean air. Perfect for sleeping with the windows open!

2. The gorgeous fall colours….

3. The change of wardrobes….skinny jeans, comfy sweaters and high boots…love….

4.  Being able to put the fireplace on again.

5.  Walks in the woods, collecting fallen birch branches, cool leaves and pinecones.  And seeing cute little guys like this….

6.  Time to concentrate on all the indoor projects, without worrying about weeding the garden 🙂

7.  And last but definitely not least, making new exterior and interior arrangements with natural elements.

On that note, here’s what I worked on at the cottage this past weekend, in between watching them pull our sunken boat out of the river ; /

Happy Fall!
