Fall

Hello Everyone.  Hope the week is going great for all of you.

The temps here are finally feeling like true fall. 
I started some decor inside.

I do not do a lot for fall but wanted a little bit of the season throughout the cottage.


While I love fall it was sad to see my summer lounge chair through the window with the cover and cushions off  and put away for the season :(.

I will start the tour in the kitchen.

Chippy bench with Harvest blessings and cloth pumpkins I have collected through the years along with the two cute sweater pumpkins I just got from Celeste.

With my love of neutral I do not do a lot of traditional fall colors but stay with the creams and whites and soft golds.


My bike and boots with some fall decor.


The little witch mouse gifted from Judy.  She has her own little pumpkin patch to play.  Notice the spider is gone from her hands and little pumpkin there now.  Noooo spiders allowed lol!





Fall On Top and Inside Of China Cabinet



I put a bird cage filled with white pumpkins and cream hydrangeas along with cream colored fall flowers in the bird house.  Soft colors for fall here in the cottage










A new gather sign I put on my china cabinet door.





The coffee table needed a little fall added too.  White tray filled with fall straw, pumpkins, feathers and wheat.

Have you tried the 1803 candles.  Oh my gosh they are the best smells you can get in a candle.  My friend just gifted me this pumpkin cornbread and it is fabulous.  Makes your house smell so good.
They have several scents.  Love them all.  I have found these at a couple of shops I frequent but you can find them on line here. I did not get any compensation for showing these candles just love them and wanted to share.

Garden angel with white pumpkin
Sweet angel with fabric pumpkins on a platter for a centerpiece on my dining table.



I just love adding a new sweater or fabric pumpkin to my collection each year.

Watering can with faux fall flowers, grateful sign and angel with a few more sweater and fabric pumpkins.








This is why I have not gotten to the outside for fall just yet.  My flowers while beginning to show signs of summer ending,  still are trying to hang in there.  

The temps here outside Chicago are beginning to cool down and feel more like fall so it will not be long before I can start the outside decor for fall.

Have a great rest of the week.  Terry and I are headed out for a week end get away in Michigan.

We rented a small cottage on the lake in Saugatuck, Mi. and there are rumors of cute shops and good eateries in that area.  We just need a little escape from all the stress these past months.  We will celebrate our 35th Anniversary too.
So enjoy the rest of the week and also the week end.
Hugs,
Kris
PS: Cooper Duper is enjoying a nap with the cool breeze coming in the door today.  Love my little photo bomber:

  12. Happy Anniversary...hope you have a fun and relaxing time. Love all your Fall additions. The light that comes into your house is absolutely wonderful... should help when the days have grey skies. Off to look at the calendar...for some reason I am not sure if it is Wednesday or Tuesday. Yikes, how do I forget what day it is??!!

  27. Kris, I just love how you did autumn decorations in your favorite soft colors. I think it all looks so great. I like that tiny bench in the kitchen.

  28. Your neutral fall decor is very pretty. I like how you swapped out the spider for the pumpkin too. Ha! I wish we were enjoying cool weather here but it's still very hot in GA. The mornings and nights are cooler but the days are swealtering! We will probably have a short Fall season this year with limited color due to the heat and drought we have experienced.

  33. Wishing you and Terry a fun 35th wedding anniversary celebration on your weekend getaway. I see a post next week of all the goodies you find in the shops you discover. I am chuckling over you removing the spider, lol - Kris I am so happy to see Cooper photo bombing and doing well. It's all the love and attention he gets from you I am sure. I enjoyed seeing your fall decorations and will check out the candle company.

  34. Dearest Kris! HELLO!!!!! How I love your furniture, and that china cabinet is gorgeous. I think you have such an advantage as well with all the natural light you have in your cottage; that is one thing I don't have a lot of in my home: LIGHT! Your fall scape is gorgeous in all white with just enough natural tones to keep things silent and peaceful. LOVE YA!
