I love decorating for Fall. I enjoy walking the woods and the country roads to gather the leaves, the berries, and even a few dead weeds to make up my Fall vignettes.
I’m using my repurposed counter as a focal point to begin decorating for fall in my home. It is the biggest piece in this little cottage of mine and works great for any seasonal displays. Maybe you remember how this counter came to be, if not you can read here. Tim did such a good job at creating this for me, I have to brag about it whenever I can!
I’m still displaying my crocks. The smaller ones were collected while we lived in Missouri many moons ago. This was back in the day when I had four young children running around the house. I remember many a times trying to fix supper with a little one hanging on your legs wanting to be held, don’t you? Good memories now, even though I’m sure I felt exasperated at the time.
I think I must be a Farm girl at heart, I’ve never lost my love for all of the old farmhouse wares that were needed for maintaining a proper country kitchen in those by-gone days. All I need now is to find an acreage with a big old-fashioned farmhouse again…
Here are the Mountain Ash berries I collected. I like to use them when I’m decorating for fall. I like the mix of the blues and the orange together. This is my favourite colour combination for Fall now.
I have to laugh at this card. “Just enjoy every moment in the grand old-fashioned way”. This was in 1945 for goodness sake.
I just acquired this turkey plate last week. The colours are still so pretty and vibrant. The back reads, ‘Staffordshire, England’. Our Canadian Thanksgiving is on October 12th this year.
Now that the decorating is done I’m going to head outdoors while the weather is still so nice. I have a lot to finish before we get our first frost. Today I plan to finish digging the herbs I want to bring in for the summer and gather the flower seeds to save for next year. Never a dull day, as the saying goes!
