Fall Out. . .In the Living Room

Hi, this week I am posting my Fall décor. . .one room at a time. 

As you enter in the front door directly to the right are a set of French Doors.  Come inside, welcome to our living room.

I’ve decorated the shelf made from half of a vintage door with a few Fall items.

We added the bead board, the shelf, and mirror last Winter.  I had a lot of fun giving it a touch of Fall. The gourd candle holders I bought at Big Lots years ago.  Back when it was called Pic & Save.  A rustic acorn, and an iron fleur de le complete the vignette.

A vintage scoop holds painted canvas acorns and chenille corn.

At the other end of the shelf is a glass pumpkin and a couple of old clocks  to remind us that it’s “Time for Fall”.  I picked up the paper feather in Idaho.

A ceramic bowl full of Fall’s harvest sits atop a pumpkin and leaf runner I made.   An Autumn hued tea cup and saucer waiting to be filled.

rustic meets bling.

I love this chippy table.  A wire basket holds a few of my Autumn themed plates.

I love the handmade lace on this estate sale tablecloth find.

I added a glittered leaf to another coffee filter wreath and hung it from my spindle made into a wreath holder.

Look at this old Dictionary that I found at D.I. for $4.  Red and aqua, sigh!  The Seasons book has been one of my favorites for years.

A chalked sunflower stitchery I made a couple of years ago sits atop my vintage green cabinet.

The cabinet holds my collection of red dishes.  I hung a primitive pumpkin from the door.

This shelf never photographs very well.  I always seem to get a bit of a glare.

It feels a bit more like Fall here every day.  How about where you live?

I love how you've decorated for fall. I'm really inspired to get out my Fall decorations and probably add a few new things to it this year. I really like how you have the plates in the wire basket.

Love your pretty Autumn decor! No cooler weather here yet. I do see some subtle changes, but it is still triple digits, and muggy! Just the worst weather for a summer in as long as I can remember. We have to go to Big Bear to escape it every weekend!!!
