It's beginning to look a lot like fall around here!
Actually, it has for a month now, but I'm finally just getting around to telling you about it :)
I don't really go to crazy. Just some touches here and there. Simple and not too busy.
First up, our entry.
Branches (can you tell what I used for filler?)
And a few leaves tied onto an empty frame with some clear fishing line.
Next, our Mantel.
A few fall leaf branches (same filler as in the entryway), our family pic and a reminder to "be thankful"
I have a string of white christmas lights (that I leave there all year long) behind the picture to help illuminate the dark corner.
And the other side of the room, with the awkward light.
A few fall photo frames and a small wreath:
Now come along with me. Down
For more branches.
These are branches that had fallen from a tree at the park behind our house. And one morning when I was taking our dog
for a walk, I ended up back at home with an armful of branches :)
But this time for filler, I used some fake fall leaves (I have plenty of these ~ leftover from our wedding decor..........12 years ago)
Our media center:
And do you see the "little fall decor" labeled piece? Well, I was inspired by pinterest. This was what I saw:
This was my version:
Ok, not quite as cool, but I didn't feel like digging for a bigger vase, besides, my favorite one broke. :(
BUT.... I still like the simplicity of it and the small pop of fall colors it provides.
Well, there you have it ~ a bit of fall from my house.
Oh, and that filler coffee beans. Let me tell you, my house smelt so yummy for so long. But, I do love the smell of coffee! This was a inexpensive filler and like I said before I loved walking through the entryway just so I could get a whiff :)
So, do tell.... are you still in fall mode, or have you, like all of the stores, switched over to Christmas?
