Fall Foyer Steps and Credenza

Good morning! I hope you all are drying out from all the RAIN we have had, especially here along the east coast! I feel so bad for the people ON the coast who have had flooding and one man's house broke right off the pilings and washed away!!!! I am counting our blessings, a little inconvenience is no match for the mess some have.
Anyway, I wanted to WELCOME you to the foyer. Many of you have seen that I line the steps with some of my blue and white jars. That never changes, I knew I would do this before we even built. But I try to enhance it each season with some additions.
 I usually have green rings around the candles and so I just added some fall rings. Each one is a little different.
 acorns adorn this one
 tiny pinecones, leaves and berries
 teeny pumpkins!

 This is the first year I have decorated the credenza! I wanted to last year but never got to it. These tall candlesticks will probably be a fixture here now. I got them at Kirklands during the summer on a good sale, plus I had a coupon.
 These ceramic pumpkins blend so well with the colors in the runner.
 I forget where I found these crackle pumpkins, but liked that they are so neutral.
 In the evening this lamp comes on with a timer.
 I added some fall branches to a green demi john like bottle.

 2 garlands were twisted together to create a pretty lush garland.

 The sparkly leaves on this stem match the leaves in the runner too.
 I enjoy this vignette all the time.

Thanks for stopping by! I would love to hear from you if you have a second.

2 New Fall Pillows!!

I was away last week. I went to the beach with 7 girlfriends, this was the 41st annual trip for us!!! We started when all of our kids were teeny tiny. It is a BLESSING to have these women in my life. So while we were away I did some SHOPPING, I know, shocking! I found one of the pillows down there. Then on Tues. I had plans to go up to Lancaster to meet with Yvonne for lunch and some shopping! Yes, THAT Yvonne, that we all love. She and I became friends through blogging and live only 45 mins. apart! So, after lunch we went to the PB outlet and I got a gorgeous pumpkin pillow.
 I love that there is some sparkle to it and the pale blue blends with my RL pillows.
 I love a touch of leopard in any room so am pairing these with it.

 I also have this leopard topper on this table. And I LOOOVE my 2 leopard glass pumpkins!

 This is the other pillow. I have been looking at it for awhile and got it last week.
 I love how the leaves and vines go so well with the leaves and vines on the chair!!

 It also has a TOUCH of script on it.
 Now, are you ready? It came from Walmart!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy that I found it, it seems to be perfect on this chair.
 This is a cozy spot for me. In the Fall and Winter I usually bring in a footstool and a throw and sit here to read. The chair is a great size for me.
Thanks for your visit. I hope you have a beautiful day!!!!

A Warm Fall Welcome!

I decorated out front 2 weeks ago but am just getting to share it now. I have been away, left last Wed. and got home Sunday. I was away with girlfriends to the beach. We have done this annual trip for 41 years now!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is always a great time. I feel so blessed to have these friends all these years. We all were neighbors and raised our kids together. Now our kids have kids:) Anyway, here is my WELCOME to you and all who visit! A pretty wreath is a beautiful welcome to family and friends. I made this last year and still love it but am working on a new piece for the front door, and this will go on the back door.
 I have had the coleus in the urn all summer along with the begonias so just added some faux pumpkins, a gourd  and a mum at the base.
 Love how the coleus is growing up the sticks.
 A real ivy has been growing here in this chair planter all summer so I added a faux sunflower bush. This area gets NO sun so it is hard to use real here.
 The pumpkin doormat came from Kirklands last year. They do have it again this year. I placed it on top of a plain doormat. Sorry, didn't realize it was crooked when I took these shots:)
 I trimmed this angel wing begonia WAY back; it was a lot bigger and in the way! Then I added the pumpkin branches

 2 faux pumpkins greet visitors.

 I put a real mum in with the bushes that are here in this area. It is now blooming a lot more!
 A coleus, mum and geranium sit on the sidewalk leading to the front door.

 I got this pumpkin patch fence piece many years ago at a craft fair and still love it.
 I simple garland dresses up the mailbox.

 Thanks for your visit! I missed you all last week and will try to get back to visiting you all. Have a beautiful Fall day my friends. It is getting time for hot cider, cozy throws, football, chili and all the other fun things that Fall brings!!!! I love Fall!! I will be sharing at these parties:

Our Everyday Fall table....for now!

I created a table that we can use everyday. Simple, early Fall, perfect for now. Hope you like it! I took lots of pics so please bear with me:)
 I put my white ceramic pumpkin inside of a grapevine then covered it with this wire cloche.
 These are glass pumpkins and have LED tea lights under them.
 I found the rust colored dinner plates at the $ store. They are such a gorgeous color!!!

 Leaf embroidered placemats and a leaf shaped plate sits on

 this leaf plate from Walmart!!!
 Isn't it perfect with the placemat? I have had the placemats for years!
 Little twine pumpkins rest against the stand and acorns are scattered as they would be outside.

 I gathered 2 napkins in this flower ring from Pier 1.
 These little garden carts are so sweet!

 Brown bubble glasses

 And this pumpkin platter holds our main dish at night.

 In an effort to drink more water I am keeping the pitcher on the table!

 My brown bamboo flatware is my go to in Fall.

 Pumpkin candle rings are under the pumpkins.

 Pork chops with broccoli was our main dish the other night.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a beautiful day, sweet friends!!!
XO, Pinky
