Today I'm sharing some of the things I've done this year to decorate for fall. Mind you, it's nothing elaborate -- not by a long shot. I tend to keep things simple, especially now that we're temporarily in a rented apartment.
I have an antique pinch bottle that I like to change out with the seasons. (There's my chest, in the background, from my post "To Paint or Not to Paint".) Recently I picked up a few fake blooms at the dollar store to add to the pinch bottle. I placed one of my autumn scented votive candles on the end table, and it's good to go.
I like to open my eyes to objects I already have in our home that I can combine for a seasonal vignette. The greens and brown of my old books work perfectly for fall.
I relocated my french pitcher, with the fall arrangemen,t next to the books.
And placed my metal magnetic calendar in the background.
Voilà! A fall vignette in minutes.
I am very fortunate to be married to a very talented artist who has provided our home with beautiful artwork. Usually I can find a painting to include in my seasonal decorating, such as this aspens watercolor.
And, of course, there's my beloved pumpkin that Dennis painted a couple of years ago. I always show it off in the fall.
There's still time to enter my giveaway for a chance to win your own unframed pumpkin print like this one. But hurry; the entry deadline ends Tuesday, October 22. You can find the Rafflecopter entry here.
I hope by sharing my fall decorating I've demonstrated that what appears to be subtle changes around our homes can have a seasonal impact. One doesn't need to expend a lot of time, or money.
Hope your week is filled with joy.
