Fall Decor

I love fall... I believe I touched on this subject before! It is a beautiful season, the outdoors are truly at their finest.

It should therefore be no surprise that I also enjoy when my indoor decor echos these outdoor hues. Houses look so beautiful in warm and comforting tones. I even make sure I have candles that smell like pumpkin pie burning 24/7.

But not this year. This is as far as I got.

About two months ago I took my fall decor out of our storage room and moved it into the upstairs hallway. I really thought I would get it all set up... turns out, I was wrong!

Between work, the slipper making, and trying to work on some patterns, the decor was neglected. I even bought little pumpkins for my mantle that never got put to use. So sad... sorry, little pumpkins!

I did, however get my favorite fall picture up:

I fell in love with this picture when I first saw it in the Martha Stewart Living Magazine last fall. I immediately ripped out the page and framed it. Who knew a torn out magazine page could make such a statement!

At this point, I figure it's time I put the fall away and just let my Christmas decorations take their turn in the hallway. Who knows, maybe I'll get around to putting them up this season!


  1. i have had that page sitting on my desk waiting to be framed for over a year... maybe next year i will actually frame it!

  2. Aw, oh well. Now you can enjoy them twice as much next year!

    (also, I love that photo, too!)

  3. RE:
    If you like baking bread that you HAVE to buy 'Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day'. It is AMAZING!! Everyone I know now owns this book b/c I either talk them into it or buy it for them as a gift. It will revolutionize your bread joke!

    this cracks me it from the library last week and hope to try it out soon! just might have to buy it! thanks for the sweet crafty comments!

  4. Oh man...that's how is started for me, at the library! They just came out with a second book(Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day) at the end of October.

  5. I too have this print in my inspiration binder. I adore it! The weird nubby pumpkins are always my favorite. Hope you get your Christmas goods up in time!

  6. i obsess over pumpkin candles.

    really cute frame for that mag clipping. do you keep it up year round?
