Get Cozy for Fall!
With the welcome change to crisp, cool weather this weekend, I decided today was a great day to add some "Fall" to my decor at home. And so, after doing a little fall housecleaning, I filled two gold crockery vases with silk bittersweet and real dried hydrangeas for my mantel, added a paisley shawl to my dining room table under an arrangement of sunflowers and zinnias, and filled a basket on my coffee table with velvet pumpkins and felt acorns. Tonight, as I lit a candle and closed the window against the too cool night air, it seemed SO cozy! Now is a great time for you too to add some fall to your home -----here are pictures of several new items in the shop that will make that transition an easy one!
Above is a trio of pumpkins which could be the start of a wonderful centerpiece on your dining room table. Place it on a bed of moss, add a few votives on tiny cupcake stands, and viola -- your table is ready for fall!
A three-foot tall scarecrow will brighten up any indoor corner or covered front porch!
New velvet pillows for Halloween --- one announcing "Trick or Treat", and the other one a mood barometer, with "good witch" on one side, and of course, "bad witch" on the other.......!
A whole new crop of our darling velvet pumpkins with real pumpkin stems, totally handmade in the USA by Daria Knowles.
This darling table runner, complete with silk acorns and leaves appliqued on linen, and beaded for added delight, could run the length of your dining room table or accent a buffet.
A new duet of needlepoint pheasant pillows, in luscious fall colors, could become a focal point on your sofa.
Gorgeous new pears are a great fall filler for your favorite silver bowl or that rustic wicker basket on your coffee table.
What a cute new tray depicting our favorite fall critter --- the squirrel!
This magnifying glass on a stand and a unique little gold clock, stacked on some leather books, will add a touch of class to your desk or library table.
Add a cozy new throw to your sofa for those cool autumn evenings, buy a Cinnamon and Cider or Pumpkin Spice candle for the wonderful smell of fall, or pick up a bag of acorns to fill a pretty silver dish on an end table. Fall is such a cozy time ----make your home a reflection of that wonderful season. Plan now for a shopping jaunt to Interiors Etc. to find that spark of inspiration for your own fall decorating --- autumn's definitely here. See you soon!
