Autumn Decorations

I've told you before that I love the beauty that comes in the Fall, but at the same time I hate seeing it because I dread the thought of the winter that will be here all too soon!  But, it is here, and I decided I better do a little Fall decorating.
I like to focus on the Autumn aspect as I'm not a real fan of Halloween.  Here's what I did this Fall.


The front door has it's usual assortment of pumpkins, gourds and a mum.



This old milk can is from my Dad's farm.  It sits in the garage next to the door.  I change out what's in it depending on the season.  This turkey is holding a sign that says "gratitude is the best attitude".


I showed you this last week, but thought I better put it in again.  This is on our table.  The decorations inside and the candle are also changed depending on the season.

This is in the living room, next to the tv.  The picture and bowl are things I got 2 weeks ago at the flea market I went to.  Betsy from My Five Men has a hall table that she decorates according to the season.  Hers is bigger than this, but seeing it change inspired me to try something similar.   I had the old scale and I though it was a fun thing to add to the spot.
That's the extent of my Fall decorating - thanks for looking!

Beautiful autumn decorations! Mums are such pretty fall flowers--and yours is no exception!

Beautiful, Mari. I'm totally with you about mixed feeling over Fall. I absolutely love Fall and Fall decor (not Hallowe'en decor) But I dread the coming cold. I just wish Fall could replace Winter, lol. That would make me happy.

Deb said...

I don't do much fall decorating any more. When the kids were little, we did a lot for Halloween, but not much any more at all. I love your cute fall decor. Maybe I will get my scarecrows out - you have inspired me. That is about all I do for the fall any more. Have a great week!

Betsy Brock said...

That all looks beautiful! And I love your old scale! ...a weakness of mine!

Brenda said...

Thanks for sharing your decorations. The side table with the scale is really neat! I love decorating for the fall, unfortunately we are in the process of remodeling our front enclosed porch into our office, so I have 'stuff' in the middle of our living room floor. I can't wait for it to be done, so I can have the room back again!

Oh Mari! You have decorated so very beautifully for Fall...I don't celebrate Halloween either, so I like how you've gone for a more Autumn theme...so lovely! Enjoy these crisp, Fall days, dear Mari...hugs to you!

Simply Linda said...

I love it Mari...I wish I had your talent and many others who can decorate etc. Have a beautiful day, friend.

Oh how pretty. Love the colors as the intermingle with the gourds and candles. Beautiful.

I'm happy to read you're not into Halloween....all the more for me. ROFL [kidding]

Arlene said...

Very pretty Mari!! I havea candle holder similar to yours that I change out with the seasons too!!

Dee said...

I'm the same way. I love autumn decorating, but I don't do Halloween d├ęcor. Your porch looks great and I just love that old milk can. I love the autumn touches inside of your home as well. Have a lovely day... :)

Nancy said...

I agree with you on that I am more of a fall decorator than halloween....You have certainly added some great fall touches. I love the old milk can. I used to have one but not quite sure what happened to it....I guess it got lost in some of the moves....

Heather said...

I love it! I love the turkey in the garage; he is so cute! The set-up by the tv is perfect! I love it all!

Linda Eller said...

I feel the same as you about fall vs. halloween. Your decorations are all so nice and I especially like the scales in that set. Have a blessed day my friend.

Stephanie said...

Your autumn decor is lovely and so inviting, my friend. I have added a few touches of fall around my home and it makes me smile every time I see it :) Hugs to you!

Lovely decorations! I like the pumpkins by the door! xx

Sandi said...

I love the stone porch!

Sally said...

I really like what you've done, Mari. Especially like the table with the scales. And, the old milk can. My mom gave the one she had from the farm where she was raised to a cousin of mine. I really wish you hadn't (not that I'm jealous or anything, hahaha).

Patsy said...

Great looking , Fall is the best time of the year.

Brooke said...

love your "give thanks" picture and bowl set.

Jennifer said...

It all looks really nice, Mari. You have such a pretty house. Everything always looks neat and tidy. Hey, I'm going to make your chicken/potato/green bean recipe on Thursday! I can't wait to try it. I hope you're having a good week so far.

Terri D said...

Lovely touches and much more than I've done at our house. I really need a kick in the pants...I'm even considering not putting up a Christmas tree this year. Bah humbug!

Kerin said...

Cute, cute stuff.
Love the new framed saying and the bowl.
I've never been much for Halloween decoration either, until the past few years. No ghoulish stuff for me though.. I like to keep it fun and sweet :)
Smiles :)

Thanks for the lovely tour Mari!
I'm more of a FAll than Halloween Gal too...but of course my kiddos love the Halloween bit. I do put out a few things in October, but nothing too scary usually.
Love that turkey sign - so cute! And that old scale is so cool with your vignette on the table. Love the pretty of this season!

Angie said...

I like the Fall aspect much better than Halloween too!
Your decor is cute!

Doris said...

Love your decorations. I have an old scale too. I had two but I think I got rid of one before we moved.....crazy that I can't quite remember!!

Cherdecor said...

Oh, I love those mums in the burlap along with the pumpkins. I love the candle on your table and the sticks in the corner. I have been trying to find some sticks like those. The scales in your vignette is perfect. It is all so nicely done!

My decorations look pretty pathetic this year. I will have to share them soon.

Mari, I honestly think that the table with the scales is my favorite of all that I've seen. You know I like simple and like neutrals. The scales are a great prop to use in vignettes. I've sold so many and I don't have one right now. I'm going to a Farmhouse sale this weekend and I intend to do something about that. Love this! Hope you are doing well. I feel like I'm in my own little world these days.

CatTales said...

I love Autumn and your decorations are beautiful. I know you dread winter. Just now on the news, they say your winter might be milder than usual...I hope so! Here in the south, they are predicting a wet winter.

LL Cool Joe said...

The older I get the more depressing I find Autumn. I think I'd rather just go from Summer to Winter so we get to Spring quicker! Ha. I love your decorating. I don't celebrate Halloween but I was tempted by a pumkin t-shirt I saw. :D

Debra Howard said...

I enjoy all the seasons but always seem ready for the next one towards the end lol. Your decorations are beautiful
