It’s Fall, Y’all!

inally, there is a crispness in the air, we can open the windows and let in the cool Fall breezes.  October 1st is here and it’s time to celebrate Fall’s arrival, my second favorite of the four seasons of the year.  If you’ve been reading my blog for a couple of years, you will know that I don’t go all out for Fall decorating.  I save it up for a big Christmas show!

Grand Jury duty is over and boy, was that interesting!  I learned a lot about our judicial system and am really glad I was privileged to serve for 3 days.  We also took a tour of the jail (which is mandatory for the Grand Jury to do).  Very enlightening!  Glad to be back to my normal schedule now.


I do like to add some special things to my foyer table, so this year, once again, I drug out the white pumpkins that I made last year and put together a little vignette to welcome Fall.  As I’m looking at all these pieces, I see that everything here came from a yardsale (except the plastic pumpkins and that sweet painting from Lara Harris that I won in her giveaway).


I simply painted 2 little plastic pumpkins from Hobby Lobby and painted their stems black and sat them on top of 2 candlesticks.  And the urn painting that Lara did, is a perfect addition to this Fall table.  I kept it simple this year.


Once again, my faithful iron yardsale urn, takes center stage with some simple pinecones and acorns, most of them from my own yard.  The white starfish is a good contrast to all the brown.  You’ll notice a cute little quail sitting on top. He was a yardsale find last year and I’ve been waiting to use him somewhere.  Perfect!


He’s adorable with his real feathers, especially that little tuft on top.


This pretty leaf and acorn metal plate was also a yardsale find from a couple of years ago and I love the rustic look of it.  Last year, I really got into the white pumpkins, and you can see that in the above link from last year and the Better Homes and Gardens inspiration pic that got me started on this.  I had the urn already and with the addition of some lime green moss, it was perfect for holding my white pumpkin.


So, that’s it for Fall at my house. IMG_2626

I’ll be adding my Fall wreath that I put together last year to the door and will call it a day.Nell HIll2

I’ll add in a few more inspiration pics that I hope you’ll enjoy.  My friend, Maureen, took this pic of Mary Carol Garrity’s home tour a few years ago and I just love it.  So very fallish!Country Living2
