Fall around the house

Happy Saturday!  I hope ya'll are having beautiful weather like we are here in GA.  It is around 70 degrees, so it really is starting to feel like fall.  I have finished most of my fall decorating.  I am working on a couple of new pillows for the front porch rockers, and I hope to pick up a couple of pumpkins tomorrow.  That should finish the front porch up.  For now I will share some of the inside displays. 

The mantel is always my favorite place to decorate for each season.  I have some cute little pumpkins on candle sticks, some glittery acorns on top of a couple of books for height and of course candles.  It just would not be fall without some yummy smelling candles, these are apple & cinnamon. I bought a couple of pretty vines from Michaels and tied them together to give them a bit more presence. Above the mantel I have an arrangement in a wall pocket.  I had it hanging with command hooks  - never again.  It fell, gouged my new wood floors, scratched the wall and the adhesive pulled the paint off.  The Mister came home and put a nail in the wall, not really what I wanted done, but oh well.





Above the mantel I have this really pretty arrangement in a wall pocket.


That is the mantel, unless I change it - which could happen!  I will show you a few random shots from around the house.



This is also in the family room, on the coffee table.  You can see the Mister's pride & joy in the back ground - all his video/audio equipment.  I do have to admit, he can rock the house!



This is the breakfast table.  I love the roosters, they where a GW find earlier this summer.  I should of turned the TV off.


 
This is the kitchen island that I showed you in my last post.  Added this arrangement that I picked up at HomeGoods this week - I wish your screen had scratch and sniff because it really smells wonderful!


 

This jar of pumpkins sits in the family room on a shelf that holds CDs/DVDs.  I have a digital frame sitting on some red books along with a pot of greenery.  Well a quick little tour to show what I have done in the family room/kitchen area. 

Thanks for all that stopped by for my Kitchen Tour.  I really appreciate all the lovely comments, and special thanks to my new followers.  I have not forgotten the last part of the kitchen, just got very busy this week.  I have the pictures just need to do the post. 

I will be joining Kate for Flaunt your Fall Party - I'm late, but hope to see your there.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Your fall decor looks wonderful :) I love the mantel! I laughed when you said 70 degrees feels like fall. It's in the 40's here and upper 20's at night. Brrr!!
