Happy October!!

Hello friends! Welcome to my little Fall decor tour. I'm not a huge Fall decorator, but I do like to do a little. I don't like scary Halloween stuff, just the cutesy stuff. I put a basic Autumn theme out, and then add either Halloween or Thanksgiving items to it. So here's our front door...



A simple Fall swag from Michael's and a very glittery Harvest sign with some faux Mums...

This isn't an Autumn decoration but I thought I'd show you a little close-up. It's a mosaic-ed welcome mat that I made when we installed tile on our walkway a couple of years ago.

When you walk into our house the first thing you see is the piano. It's got some basic fall decs on it. I need to find some orange and black ribbon for the candle stands. I got those white pumpkins at the dollar store a couple of years ago.

I found that owl at GW a couple of years ago and it is one of my favorite fall decs. The painting behind it is a print from Sara Mincy.

I made this a couple of years ago. I saw something similar to it on some Halloween scrapbooking paper, so I painted my own version.

I've decorated this vignette but it is looking pretty sad. I would love to maybe put a runner on it and put lots and lots of framed pictures of my kiddos in previous Halloween costumes. I'm going to be on the search for some Halloween frames or ones that I could paint black or orange. I'll let you know how that project goes.

I can't remember now where this print came from, but I got it on Etsy last year and sewed it onto some painted canvas. I love these candles. (Homegoods)


If you want to make some of these stuffed candy corns, I show you how right here. A lot of you suggested a banner, which is on my to-do list.

Right now they are just living in this bowl.

I would love to also add some Lori Mitchell pieces, but every year the ones I really love are already sold out!

Thanks for stopping by! I'm participating in Rhoda's Fall Party, and I can't wait to get some inspiration for some new decorations.

That welcome mat is fantastic! Oh how I love it, you are so good!

You mentioned a table runner...I've been on the hunt for one (but refuse to pay $30 for a brand new one). I went to a thrift store the other day and found a pretty green one...sort of a sage/pea green...that's a linen/cotton mix for about $2! It looks brand new.

I love what you've done, it's very nice!
