Fall in Love


Fall. It is by far my favorite season. How can you not love the colorful leaves, crisp air, comfy sweaters, apple picking and pumpkin pie?! Though it never lasts as long as I’d like it to, I still find it such a soothing season. It’s only mid-September, and here in Jersey it was just 90 degrees last week and the leaves won’t change for at least another month or so. But I couldn’t help myself from decorating our house for autumn. We don’t even have furniture in our living room yet (that’s coming next weekend) – but the mantel was just begging me to dress it up! I used some everyday items, flea market finds and a little inspiration from Pinterest to come up with this:






I also put together a quick little centerpiece for our dining room table using a wooden box and mason jars. I found the box on the work bench in our basement. It apparently came with the house. Something similar would probably sell in stores for around $30. Gotta love a free find!


Next up will be the front door and steps. What are some of your favorite fall decorations?

  1. Lovely! It is so wonderful to see you making your home absolutely YOURS! Very creative and the narrative is enjoyable and entertaining. Can’t wait to see your next post. Now, if you can keep Luca from getting into things…… 🙂


  2. You captivated my interest ! What a perfect title for the topic.
    Your Autumn Harvest is a beautiful display with the inclusion of your family tree, the warmth of candles, the flowers of the season and other treasures. Even the fireplace screen and underlaying floor look like fall.
    “Also as a bonus, your work has definitely inspired me to cover the pool”.
    Really enjoy your blog.


  3. This looks great! I love all of your fall decor. Fall is my favorite season too! So happy I stumbled across your blog today. I will definitely be following along now 🙂
