It is finally chilly enough for leggings and a scarf. The fields are ready for harvesting (if only the rain would stop..). And I’m trying not to jump around shouting, “Hooray for fall” while scattering pumpkin spice pixie dust.
Pumpkin spice pixie dust aside, I am embracing the changing of seasons and spent a little time earlier this week bringing some fall touches to our farmhouse.
In an effort to simplify and reduce the amount of stuff I have in seasonal storage I made an effort to repurpose darker wooden pieces in my home and then bring in natural elements that remind me of fall tones. (Think dried eucalyptus and not-too-bright pumpkins.)
Balancing out the dark rusty and deep natural hues are the pumpkins in light and muted colors.
The candlesticks made from old table legs are chippy and peeling paint, which means I love them. And the darker colored paint will last throughout the Christmas and winter season.
This little black kittie came along just in time for October 31st.
Whether you add one carved jack-o-lantern to the front porch, or buy enough pumpkins to make the farmer market stand question your sanity, I hope you enjoy the fall season.
