Falling In The Kitchen


Hope you enjoyed a great first fall weekend.

I wish I could tell you it's cooler here, but NOT just yet!!

We did have some rain, but it only got hotter.
Now the weather people are predicting cooler temps this week.
So ready!!

It's fall anyway in spite of the heat
and I've embraced the new season
here in Rose Garden Cottage.

Welcome to a few views from my kitchen.

This is where family and friends meet!

Adding aqua to my fall decor has me smitten for this look this season.

I repainted a little counter lamp in soft aqua ~ love!!
"Fall in Love" note holder is perfect to keep a recipe handy.

This vintage glass carrier was also light aqua.
 I filled it with small milk bottles and pretty fall flowers.

Here's a wall idea pulled together for little cost using bits and pieces I already had in my stash.
The wall pocket added a bit of charm along with red and aqua painted birds.
The vintage medicine bottle was painted with chalk paint and holds a few greens and a fall daisy.
Because these bottles were usually shaped thin, it fits perfectly.
The house number tile was found on a treasure hunt.
I love the number 3.
Rolled up French wrapping paper finishes this wall vignette.

Have you seen The Pioneer Woman Collection?
I love the buffalo check tablecloth in aqua.
The bowls are from the Dollar Tree.
Score all around adding decor for less.
To the aqua ringed bowls,
I've added a large rusty pumpkin.

My kitchen is where we gather home!
At the end of the bar, sits this fun aqua rooster.

This darling kitchen towel was handmade by the talented
Love it!!

Cookie cutters fill a clear pumpkin jar ready for baking.

On the island is a tiered basket tray filled with fall accents.

A few aqua pumpkins with the traditional colors.

Handmade spoons tied with aqua ribbon.
The candle is on a timer and brings a cozy glow in the evening.

Vintage pie birds from my mother's collection  now grace my kitchen.

As the evening begins, this musical candle on a timer lights aglow
and brings so much coziness to the kitchen.

Do you cozy your kitchen for fall?
Now if only the weather would cooperate!


Don't forget the Texas Blog Hop Tour
beginning October 3rd.

See you next week.

I absolutely love all the aqua touches in your pretty kitchen. I love the cookie cutters, wooden spoons and pumpkins. The pretty tea towel made by Kitty is adorable. Everything looks so cozy. Finally today you can start baking or cooking some soups and stews-it's finally cooler out there. Yeah, Fall!

I loved taking a peek in your heart of the home, my friend! Your touches of aqua add such a softness to your Fall decor. I'm so happy that you love the pumpkin kitchen towel that I made for you. It looks like we've had a temperature drop, so maybe Fall has arrived in Texas! Have a happy week!

So many charming touches in your kitchen! I love the unexpected touch of aqua.

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

Your kitchen looks so cozy for fall! I use my kitchen so much when cooking that there really is not a place to add pretty elements....I do decorate the dining room which is right next to the kitchen.

Sue Kosec said...

Sooooooooo inviting. As always, your home is just beautiful with your special touches.

Happy Fall!

Debby Ray said...

Dorthe said...

Such a cozy fall in your kitchen dear Celestina, looks just like a country setting which I love,- and yes I decorate a little for fall, but it is not usual to do so, here in Denmark. Only a wreath or such, maybe a pumpkin , but thats all. I have been smitten a bit from all my friends in America , and it is wonderful :-) Thank you for showing all your wonderful ideas and lovely home ! Dorthe, xox

Morning, Yes my home and kitchen are looking very festive with the pumpkins and candles and the fall mix of crackers on the table. And of course the fall placemats.
And I love the fall decoration I got from your shop, Count your blessings...
Thank you for the inspiration and your talent you share with us! I loved my items so much! Hugs, Roxy

I think we have fall weather today! Yay!! :) Your decor is beautiful, as usual. I'm loving the soft blues, gold, white and aqua I've seen this year. I think it's a pleasant change from all the oranges. Your home is always lovely and welcoming!

P.S. I, too, still love the towel Kitty made!

Blondie's Journal said...

I really like the aqua, Celeste, it stands out with all of the other harvest colors. All of your vignettes are so cute, they inspire me. I haven't has a chance to do anything. Your kitchen just looks so cozy and inviting. I hope you can sit and relax with coffee and perhaps the newspaper before you start your day!


Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh so pretty, Celeste! I wish you were on Instagram. YOU WOULD LOVE IT because there are so many women who share their home dΓ©cor. There are hashtag days when everyone shares their love for aqua or antiques, or any other fun theme. Please consider Instagram. You would be wonderful there!

Conniecrafter said...

Oh I just love the great fall accents you have added to your kitchen. The touch of all the Aqua in there is so pretty with the fall colors, hmmmm I never thought of putting those colors together, great inspiration! Especially love your chicken, and pretty table setting!
Fall has finally come here so I hope your not far behind, we had 90's on Sunday and went down to the 70's yesterday after the rain came through.

Donna said...

Your home is just so pretty all decked out for fall, Celestina! Your tiered wire basket is so neat. And I love the touches of aqua here and there. One of my favorite things is the wire wall pocket! What a great accessory that will be so versatile. Thank you for the tour, and for always sharing so many inspiring ideas:)

The Bear's Blog said...

I don't see too many of the glass pumpkins around. Dunkin' Donuts offered them years ago filled with donut holes, I think that was in the mid 70's, thankfully I bought one and have enjoyed it each fall.

Hugs, hope your weather changes. We will see the high 50's for a daytime high tomorrow, and the leaves are changing early this year. Love this season.


Stephanie said...

Good morning, sweet Celeste! My oh my, you have been busy making your home a place of Autumn beauty. I just love all of your fall accents and decorations. And you know I just LOVE the towel dear Kitty made you :)

Have a glorious week, lovely lady. Hugs!

Createology said...

Aqua is a lovely accent to add to your Fall decor. Your mother's pie birds are my favorite in your vignettes. Your home is always so inviting and comfortable and you are always so sweet and welcoming. Falling into Autumn Bliss...

Ginny said...

Oh my dear Celeste! How pretty! You know, I was thinking of aqua and red for my Christmas table, and there in your picture is a lovely buffalo check tablecloth! Last year, I had black and red, but I think the aqua will look lovely! Hard to say, but I am looking forward to decorating for Christmas! Yes, me who cannot stomach the cold Michigan winters, is looking forward to the holidays! Love your autumn treasures. You always do such a nice job of decorating.

Creations By Cindy said...

Love your fall kitchen sweet lady. Everything is so pretty and warm and inviting. Now if you will just make us a pumpkin pie and some coffee to share that would be nice! LOL! Oh and that would be so nice to join you in your beautiful kitchen. I have managed to get my fireplace mantle decorated for fall but that is it as of now. I too hope the weather gets cooler. Hopefully by Friday some temps will drop. Have a sweet week. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Sandi Magle said...

I have reconsidered aqua as a real palette changer for the seasons. Super with orange, and a nice light, bright touch to balance out the tones of the season. Adorable kitchen, Celestine....still working on ours---I get to grout tile tomorrow! LOL, Sandi

handmade by amalia said...

I love your decorations and the way you've set the table. It is so nice to see the richer, warmer colors of autumn, I've had enough of summer for a while. It is still quite hot here and no rain in sight, but you can feel autumn coming :-)

Linda Walker said...

I love your decorating! Your kitchen looks so festive and pretty! The towel Kitty made is so cute. I love it! I love the color combination you used in decorating your table and I adore that little aqua rooster! What is he made out of? I find myself drawn to roosters these days!!! He is so cute! I also spied that lovely tiered basket so nicely decorated. I am looking for one of those! You are always so full of festive inspiration! Hope your weather cooperates! It's a chilly, rainy day here today!

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Very sweet fall look in your kitchen. I see the love you have put into your sweet home. Love your pretty tiered baskets. It is hot again here, so I shall be enjoying the pool a little longer. Enjoy your week. xo

janice15 said...

I just purchased that check aqua table cloth from Pioneer Women and I just love it.. I also got some gold gingham placemats from her fall line.. Your fall displays are lovely.. I like the aqua touches.. Happy Fall dearest with love Janice

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Celestina, you didn't mention anything about baking, but I could sure smell a pumpkin pie when looking at your beautiful vignettes. It all looks so cozy and love the addition of aqua in the mix. Kitchens are the best place to be this time of year, I think..Happy Wednesday..Judy

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

Everything is so cute and cozy! I haven't been in to look at the new Pioneer Woam stuff yet. That tablecloth is cute- I wonder if there are other colors? Love all your displays- baskets are so fun to play with! We cooled right off here but I'm sure you're not surprised! I hope it cools off enough for you to enjoy the fall season soon! It's been a tough year for the south this year.

Julie's Creative Lifestyle said...

Hello Celestina, wow your kitchen looks so pretty and festive for fall. I hope you are having a nice week! Julie xo

Tete said...

Wonderful things and so much going on. Love cozy, its a great feeling. Hope you have cooled down. We got ours and its so nice to have goosebumps in the mornings and evenings. Days still warm up to the 70s, but 50s at night. Great snuggling weather, if the old man didn't have such a cold...LOL! Have a great week.

Deborah Montgomery said...

I love the addition of aqua. Inspired! Your kitchen is definitely looking fallish and cozy. Now you just need the weather to cooperate! No kitchen decor here as the cabinets just got all ripped out. We are beginning a kitchen and powder room reno.
What a sweet towel that Kitty made you! And I love those little pie birds.
Blessings, Deborah

I absolutely love the touches of aqua! Your vignettes are so very pretty and romantic. The new Pioneer woman line is just wonderful! I have purchased a couple of new pieces and have my eye on a couple more, like I need more dishes (lol). Sweet post, thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful week ahead. Looking forward to your Texas blog tour!

Dear Celeste! Oh, your kitchen fall vignettes look wonderful! I too love that pretty Pioneer Woman's tablecloth - I haven't seen those. Your table looks lovely and you even have a Rooster to match! ;) Everything you so turns out most gorgeous! Hope you've had a nice weekend.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Beautiful decor! Love the tiered tray!

Joy Junktion said...

Hi Celeste! Love your falling kitchen! Did you know the #3 is my favorite as well, ummm...I'm sure you know it's because of My 3 K's :) Surprisingly I keep my cookie cutters in my clear pumpkin jar on my stove through the fall as well!! Love the touches of aqua! Have a blessed week ahead! Cindy xo

Sarah said...

Celeste, your home is full of welcoming fall touches. I'm so happy that the TX weather is ushering in some cooler days so we can truly enjoy fall. Thanks for sharing your home. Have a great week!

Linda said...

WHERE on earth did you get that fabulous wall pocket!!! Oh my, my heart is lost.

Love everything you have done! It's been a bit cooler here in the Hill Country, but no real fall yet! I'm ready for some cooler weather though we had a wonderful summer here with only about 10 days of hot weather this year.
