Falling into Autumn Around the House!

Happy First Day of Autumn!
We are all finding inspiration from the many tours around blogland.
It has been a special time to visit and gather ideas.

I've had so much fun visiting friends and I am sure you have too.

Welcome  Friends to my home.

This year I decorated a bit early.
Preparing for a busy season ahead in my shoppe, I wanted to make hay while the sun shined.
When you come in the front door,
this horn of plenty is on the entry table.

This large metal tub has been painted off white with a French graphic.
The little Trick or Treat sign is ready to greet my Halloween visitors.

Keeping things simply with a  less is more plan,
or so I have tried.

Here are just a few of the views around my fall home
starting in the dining room which is just off to the right of the entry.

Several years ago,
 I shared the painting of my hutch for a bit of French Country charm.
It is 35 plus years old and I could just not part with it.
Plus I need it to hold my dish addiction~~
So~ since painting furniture is apart of my world,
I gave it an upgrade to black with distress and added wood appliques.

Taking out the door grids on the glass and adding stained glass appliques in black faux leading,
gave it a whole new look and style.

I love blue with it's contrast color of orange.
These candle sticks are simply topped with a pumpkin instead of a candle.

This simply fall display will take us right into Thanksgiving.

To the top, I left my blueware and white roosters in place and just added 
a garland of fall leaves.

Looking over the table you can see where I placed the appliques
on the hutch and the door designs on the glass.

To the table,
 I added a variety of fall harvest to my long wire flat basket
on a black and white table runner.

Here you can see a better view where I added the wood appliques.

Several years ago I found these velvet shades with gold polka dots and beads.
They work nicely through the winter months, but lately I've kept them on year round.

This is the side buffet I use for serving.
A few fall leaves and a little pumpkin gives a touch of the season without 
making big changes.

In the dining room window,
I've placed a crocheted throw and wood tray filled with a variety of
pumpkins to a window bench.

Thank you for visiting my entry and dining room for fall.

Join me next time in the living room.

Have a great September day.
