Its official, I have finally gone full on fall! I really had no choice since the leaves are raining down in the slightest breeze now, lol. I have added bits of fall here and there all around our little corner of the south.
First up, we welcome you with this almost vintage vignette.
Wonder Hubby and I made the candy corn and pumpkin years ago (so they are vintage or darn close by now!). I spruced them up a bit with some new paint this year.
I added them to pots of mums and sweet potato vine as well as around the little wheelbarrow I picked up back in the summer (gosh I love this thing!). Let's head inside.
I took a departure from the heavy on pumpkin and scarecrow almost Halloween approach of last year to a more simple, all fall look for the mantel.
The centerpiece of the mantel is a Longerberger basket filled with fall foliage and gourds. I added old books a small trunk and iron candlesticks with fall colored candles to surround. Lastly I added the bean filled candles, LOVE THESE!
Still loving the autumn blocks I made last year.
I love the ambiance with the candles lit....it is so pretty at night.
Next fluffed a bit and added a little spooky to my kitchen window ledge.
I made the ghosts and blocks last year and blogged about them here. Joining them are pumpkins the kids carved several years back. These are my favorite fall items. I love putting them out every year, I can still see the concentration on their faces when they were working on them. I think BDJ was 16 and Mini was 9.
Hope you are enjoying fall and your own fluffing! Thanks for stopping in.
