Autumn Around My Home



As I started adding touches of fall to my home this year, I noticed I kept wanting to simplify my spaces. I think the above image represents this perfectly!

In years past, I felt the more decor the more festive it will be!!!  I’m sure some of you can relate;  I took out every pumpkin, leaf garland and tchotchke out of the bin marked “Autumn” and went to town! LOL!

I don’t know if it’s my taste changing, my boys getting older, or just wanting to simplify all aspects of my life. I just think less is more sometimes. Can you relate?

So, after picking up a few pumpkins and gourds  at my local grocery store I selectively adorned my spaces with simple, understated Autumnal touches. Let’s take a look!

My front door got a makeover recently, you can read about it here. I re-purposed a wheat sheave I made last year and decided to decorate my door with it!  Remember…shop the house!;)


Yes, it is has to go on the storm door….ugh! LOL!


In my kitchen…a white Cinderella pumpkin (my favorite) perfectly placed on a silver tray with eucalyptus

It smells good too! :)


The only thing I added to this kitchen shelf was a green pumpkin and LOVE how it turned out.  Simplicity at its finest!


A few gourds and citrus displayed on my counter ready to use!


Three baby boos perched under an antique family heirloom (made into a chalkboard)


In my family room… a  dried gourd purchased years ago (still a favorite) on my family room mantle

And on the other side…a velvet pumpkin gifted to me with another sheave of wheat

All of this took no time at all.  We all lead busy lives.  However, placing a few touches of fall around your home is an easy thing to do. Simplicity is understated and can make a big impact on one’s mood and how they go about their day! We all have to go to the grocery store, so pick up a few pumpkins and adorn your spaces!

I promise, you will feel better;)

Have a Wonderful Week Friends!
