Fall Welcomes You on the Credenza

Welcome dear readers!!! There is a story here: the credenza looked different last week. Then when we had Colleen for the weekend there was a big accident....NO, she did nothing. She was with me when things just fell off the credenza and several things broke. Anyway, here is the new arrangement on the credenza to welcome our guests. BTW, if you enjoy my posts and come to visit please leave me a comment if you have time so I can visit you too!

 The tall candlestick has a leopard design. There WERE 2 of them here but one fell and it fell on a blue and white jar and broke that too:(
 So now one of the pumpkins rests on a brass candle stick. The tall glass pumpkin is new this year.
 I got this pumpkin several years ago at Home Goods. I placed it on a wooden stand and surrounded it with a large candle ring.
 I have had the 2 smaller glass pumpkins for a couple of years.
 Rather than a Fall runner I decided to use this one. The colors are perfect and I love the design.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Fall Mantle and Hearth 2018

I love decorating my mantle and hearth for the seasons. As much as I admire the beautiful, simple mantles out in blogland I just can't resist really doing it up:) I try to change things each year and am liking the arrangement I came up with this year. I brought out my berry garland and combined it with a leaf garland for a lush look.
 I love this container. I made this arrangement last year I think.
 I draped the berry garland down the left side of the mantle.

 On the hearth I created this arrangement of velvet pumpkins and acorns. I added some berry stems and leaves too.

 I had a few blue pine cones so added them to the mix as well.

 At night the lights come on and the room almost glows.
 I LOVE the carved wooden lanterns on the hearth and they will stay there.

 A pumpkin stack, a glitter pumpkin, a glitter gourd and an Asian jar sit behind the garland.

Thanks so much for your visit. I am still praying for all the people who suffered loss during Florence. It is so sad.

2018 Fall Breakfast Room

Good morning! I have to mention that I am thinking of and praying for everyone in the Carolinas and the other states that are in harms way. WE actually are scheduled to drive to Charlotte on Friday for a wedding Sat.! Right now we are playing it by ear to see what happens. I feel SO bad for the bride and groom to be. GO AWAY FLORENCE!!!
OK, now back to the post. I always start decorating for any season in my breakfast room/morning room. Fall is my favorite time to decorate here. The colors of Fall are my FAVORITE! I have a pretty big collection of Fall decor so try to move things around each year and do something different.
 As you know, Joe made me this hutch when we lived in the last house.
 I love to decorate it for each season. This year the colors were chosen and inspired by.....

 The beautiful plaid chargers on the top shelf!
 I switched out the large white lantern on top for this black one. It has a timer so comes on each evening.
I twisted 2 garlands together to drape over the side of the hutch. Then I added 2 brown, pottery pumpkins, a faux cabbage and some smaller pumpkins.

Joe gave me this gorgeous soup tureen several years ago, so we added it to the hutch this year. We eat a lot of soup in the Fall and Winter so it will be handy to have it right here. The leaf sticking out is the ladle. I should have gotten some shots of it and the writing inside. It says, "Give thanks for family and friends".
 I made this arrangement years ago and love how the greens and oranges in the pumpkin and arrangement match the chargers.
 This pear is made of slices of wood and adds a beautiful organic touch. My cute squirrel sits next to it.
 I decorate the 2 shelves by the windows too. I filled the candle hurricane with lots of Fall pretties.
 The wheel barrel is also filled with faux pumpkins and fall picks.
 I am glad I took pictures last week when I did this as it has been raining and COOL since Friday!

 On the other shelf is the lamp that always lives here and a large green bottle filled with some Fall stems.

 This tureen came in orange but  think the creammy color is SO pretty!
 Love these chargers and found them at Pier 1. May go back to get some more!
 I have also had these 2 pieces of art for years!

Thanks so much for your visit. I truly appreciate it and try to answer every comment here.
