It's Fall Y'all

I'm just getting started with a little Fall decorating.

Love this little pumpkin teapot. It was a gift from a great friend.

A wonderful new candle sets the mood for snuggling.

Isn't it funny how we associate certain scents with each season?

This candle is pumpkin spice.

Of course, we have to welcome guests with the perfect wreath.

Mums are mingling with geraniums on the front porch.

Mums and a beautiful magazine on the ottoman.

A fallish colored plate came out of the cabinet. I love this plate.

Now I'm off to buy some pumpkins. My favorites are the cinderella pumpkins.

How about you?

Thank you Rhoda for hosting this blog get together. :)

Be sure to go over and visit everyone else today.

Hi Stacey! So happy you came for a visit. I love your little brown plate! I have a thing for dishes and glassware and always look for them at sales. So tell me, what is a cinderella pumpkin?
And I gladly share my ideas for you to copy! *big smile*
Show me what you do, okay?

We bought a couple of pumpkins on Sunday. My 3 year old picked out a "knuckle head" and a Russian red (I thikn that's what it was called)

Rachael said...

It's looking great! I love that your mums and geraniums are mixing on the porch....mine too! And my geraniums look pretty darn healthy, I think they may be sticking around for awhile :-)

Happy Fall!!!

You realy had me stumped, Stacey, when you mentioned cinderella pumpkins. I really thought maybe they were a type of pumpkin named after the story...lol!!

I love all of your pretty fall things. You have nice little vignettes. I love to mix my mums with my flowers from summer that are hanging on. I can't believe when some people toss them!!

Your wreath is gorgeous!! Did you makie it?? Love it!!

Well, Happy Fall, Y'All! Oooh! I feel like a Southernah!!

My geraniums are very healthy right now and I hate to replace them with mums just yet. I'll just have to do some seperate pots of mums this year. Great photos.

Lovely fall decorating! Your post is a good reminder to start getting out my fall stuff -- we had a heat wave the last couple weeks so it was kind of hard to believe fall was really here. But today it's a bit blustery and the temperature has really dropped. So I'd better get looking for my pumpkin candles :) Thanks for the reminder.

Carol said...

I have a plate just like yours! I love candles with the smells of the season, even if I haven't baked something it gives the impression I have!

Amelia said...

Just a little something from Judy said...

I knew you would decorate beautifully for Fall. The pumpkin candles are one of my favorites. I like the combination of yellow mums and red geraniums on your porch. I like the cozy feeling one gets at this time of the year.
