Even though it's still summertime here in Mississippi, with temperatures in the 90s and the high humidity making it feel even more uncomfortable, Fall has made an appearance inside our house. I've been puttering and arranging and RE-arranging my fall decor all week, and yesterday I pronounced it DONE.
I'd like to share some of my creations, starting with the baskets on our front doors ...
Wreath on our porch door ...
I've had this grapevine wreath for several years and have just added to it each year. Last year I added the little owls you can see perched in the top left corner ... and this year, I added the three stems of wheat.
Just inside the porch door is the breakfast area ...
The arrangement on the table is a battered flea-market-find copper pitcher holding some "Brown-Eyed Susans" which I've had for years.
The only new addition is the arrangement of cotton branches in the white crock.
Next comes the dining room, which is a little more formal than the breakfast area.
My mother and I created the centerpiece on the table from materials I've had for years. The birds were a flea market find from many years ago.
The dining room opens onto the living area, which is an eclectic mix of fairly new pieces of furniture and a few antique pieces.
The vases and yellow wildflowers on the mantel are new additions for this Fall.
I love the yellow flowers which, I think, add a little touch of sunshine to the mantel.
And speaking of sunshine, these bright and cheerful Brown-Eyed Susans brighten a small hallway outside the master bedroom. The picture is one I captured of an old building in the French Quarter in New Orleans ...
I hope you are enjoying decorating for Fall at your house, wherever you may be. I envy those of you who are actually enjoying Fall OUTside, too!
