Welcome, Fall!

I know our house is for sale and I'm supposed to be packing instead of decorating, but not having my pretty fall things out was breaking my heart! So I gave in and got them out of the attic today. I always put everything out together at the beginning of fall: generic fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving. It's so nice to have them out. Besides, it makes things nicer for showing the house, right?
a front door welcome


my *everlasting* pumpkins


bags ready for some treats


the family room coffee table




aren't these the cutest coasters?!



some vintage Thanksgiving postcards


some berries for the chandelier


a grouping for the dining table


Susan Branch's AUTUMN book (wonderful!)
and a favorite fall dish


fall kitchen towels
my grandma's turkey salt & pepper shakers

some window sill decor
(one of my favorite pieces)


more vintage turkey salt & pepper shakers


pumpkin bread, anyone?

I *cheated* with this mix that I
got at the apple festival last weekend.
Yummy!

a back door goodbye....
come again soon!

I think it might even make your house sell faster. I don't think there's any reason you shouldn't be decorated for the holidays. What would a prospective buyer expect? It's major holiday seaon decorating time, and you've done it very tastefully.

WOW that is some beautiful fall decor.. I really need to get my house clean and get the fall stuff out before fall is over.

I think it will help you sell the house because it all looks so warm and inviting!

Love the fall decor. I need to get mine out...just haven't been motivated since it's been in the 80s around here! Unfortunately, I "cleaned out" a lot of my fall and Christmas decor this year, thinking I would replenish when we got into the new house...but that is on hold again, so I'll have to scrounge up some Fall decor...maybe even buy a few new things. YEA!
