Fall Continues Around the House: Living Room

Continuing the Fall Tour from the entry (yesterday), we head to the living room which is really part of the entry, so once again, color is kept to a minimum.

Candles in a milk bottle holder with acorns and white mini pumpkin
gives just a hint of color.

On the table under the window, hydrangeas from the garden
sit in a pale blue bowl with more acorns.

 The mantle holds most of the decorations
starting with a "thankful" banner

 Ironstone pitcher filled with wheat

 Wooden rooster and church birdhouses

Finials, acorns,

and a paper garland of large leafs cut from sheet music.

Books about the Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving

and thankful pillows add to the overall look.

Moving Fall Into the House!

Fall moves into the entry:

keeping color to a minimum

to accent, not compete with, the decor

fleur-de-lis finials and acorns

leafs cut from pretty scrapbook paper

candles set in an old maple sugar mold from
Country Living Fair

dried pomegranates in mercury vase

I Love Fall!

Fall is my favorite season!
I love the colors, the falling leaves, the chill in the air,
and the anticipation of the coming holidays!

Computer Woes: Finally Back in Business!

I have had major computer issues the last month or so, and not even my genius son couldn't fix it!

So I finally sent it in to the company and just got it back!
In case you were wondering, that's where I've been.

However, I wasn't idle while my computer was away.
In fact, I got quite a lot accomplished.

 Two slipcovers:

Front posts:

New adjustments to some old rooms:

Fall decorating:

Just to mention a few!

I will share the details and some tutorials in the coming weeks!
