It's fall! Yup, there's an exclamation point there folks. I know, I know, I have been sharing my sadness about the end of summer for weeks, so it's unexpected see me so excited about the season. What turned this frown upside down? Decor. Any chance to decorate makes me smile and now that the weather has started to turn a bit, it seemed appropriate to whip out the pumpkins.
Well, the drop in temps and the fact that Brenda, from Cozy Little House, was kind enough to ask me to join her Seasonal Harvest Tour. I had so much fun sharing my fall living room last year, that I jumped at the chance to be a part of it again.
I'm a pretty basic decorator when it comes to seasonal swaps, I do not go crazy. I have one tiny bucket of faux pumpkins and I purchase less than $10 of small real ones ~ it's enough to have a big impact on my space without wasting a tons of time setting up or breaking the bank.
That's my signature style, cheap and easy.
(Just don't tell my husband.)
Shall we tour?
Last week, I shared my living room, dressed for fall it was the setting for a romantic dinner for two.
When dinner was over, I moved my Pottery Barn Pumpkin plates back into the kitchen and popped them on the plate rack.
I made the farmhouse sign today.
I'm very smitten with it, so I have been sitting here all night just staring at my new view. I love fall evenings in this room. The lamps and candles cast a warm glow and it just feels cozy.
I know that I have shared this before, but that plate rack was given to us in exchange for a microwave cart when we moved out of our first apartment. The new tenant's dad actually made it from reclaimed wood. The microwave cart was from Kmart.
We definitely got the better end of that bargain.
I found the server at a local thrift store for $75. It's aged to perfection and once I replaced the Early American eagle drawer pulls, it fit right in.
It provides storage for many of my art supplies and it's the perfect backdrop for all my seasonal decor.
Around the corner, my new rooster pillow cover and a few more pumpkins provide a little seasonal sparkle...and I'm done!
Ten bucks and ten minutes to fall.
And now I'm missing summer just a little bit less.
Now, I know you are eager to see what everyone else is sharing. So here are the links so you can take a peek.
Thursday ~ Today!
