Fall decorating ~

I am a little late this year with my fall decorations, last week I finally ventured down into the basement and brought up the storage boxes. It's always fun to go through everything and discover things you fondly remember and those you completely forgot you have.

With the main part of the house still in disarray with the redecorating project I decided to limit my holiday decorating to a just couple of rooms: the kitchen and the media/library.


I love adding seasonal decorations to the kitchen, probably because I spend so much time here. For the shelf under the kitchen window I brought out the wooden box I made last year and filled it with pumpkins, gourds and fall foliage. Then added a wreath.  


Next to the sink I just 'plopped' a few of the extra pumkins in a very casual, but colorful arrangement.


 Once again brought out my little black witch to put on the bookshelf in the library/media room. I have had her for a very long time and every year when I take her out I am reminded how cute she is. This year I added the lighted jack-o-lanterns to the vignette. When I go in this room at night to watch TV it is fun to click on the light....spooky!

After Halloween I will replace the little witch with a turkey. Voila, Thanksgiving.


Miss Twiggley is her own holiday decoration. She is starting to get her winter coat and is looking, as you can see, quite beautiful for the upcoming holidays. She likes to sit in this window and watch the birds and insects flitting around outside. I left just enough room on each side to indulge her.

That's pretty much it for fall decorating this year, the living room project is still taking up a lot of my time. It is slowly progressing but more about that in a future post.

Have a great day.

  1. Miss Twiggly is absolutely gorgeous!
    We have a few miniature pumpkins and dried hydrangeas but not too much else in the way of Fall decorating happens here...I love seeing it in other homes but out two naughty cats destroy any vignettes that I attempt!

  7. Your fall decor is lush and beautiful. I especially like the window display with the wooden box. We are taking down an old fence and I've asked my husband to keep some of the boards so that I can have him make me a box! Enjoy this beautiful autumn season!
