Fall Nesting

{Don't forget to check out my giveaway in honor of Fall!!
Go here to enter!!}

Hey, come on in!! The fall nesting has begun at my house!

I know it's a little early to be thinking of trick-or-treating,
but I love the way these cute bags look hanging,
ready to go, on the hall tree.

My adorable jack-o-lantern coasters:)

A little wooden pumpkin that my dad brought me from Guatemala~
it's nesting quietly beside the fireplace.

My majolica turkey~isn't he a beauty?!

A pumpkin garland for the dining table.

My ceramic pumpkin just waiting to be filled with fall candy.

Susan Branch's Autumn book~it's wonderful!~
and my amber squirrel dish. I like to serve the
cranberry sauce in it at Thanksgiving.
A lovely fall dish given to me by a friend.
Don't you love this pair of dishes that my sister gave me?

I love this tea towel! It makes me smile:)

Thanks for dropping by! Before you go,
have a piece of apple bread!
Oh~and don't forget to enter the giveaway!

I do my fall decor on my birthday...which happens to be the first day of fall in a few weeks! It's so fun to bring in the season like this, isn't it?

I'll have a piece of that apple bread! yum!

It's been so cool here I feel like I almost skipped summer, but it's hard to believe it's almost officially fall. I'm still not quite ready to decorate yet, but having moved so much over the years I kept those things to a minimum so I really don't have much. Sounds like a Marshall's trip to me to see if I can find some bargains. Or Hobby Lobby. They have fantastic deals too. Your house looks very festive.

I will do most of my fall decorating on the first day of fall or thereabouts too. It's just now beginning to feel like summer up here.

Your fall things are all lovely. I especially like that tea towel. Thanks for sharing... and for stopping by my kitchen table too.

God bless,

Your posts has me heading for the basement to dig out my fall decor! Something has been in the air for sure, you are the fifth person I know of who made brownies in the last few days, myself included!

Very nice!
I love that Majolica Turkey!

Chatelaine said...

Great Fall decor. And you have great taste. I have the same Susan Branch cookbook and I have an amber turkey dish instead of a squirrel one.

Loved the turkey too!

Great Fall post.
