Vintage Fall Feels Good
Wow, I did something very daring last year! I decided to put ALL my pumpkins on this table. I had seen someone else do it unashamedly on Instagram and I thought why not? Somehow each and every one ends up giving pumpkin cuteness to s space or to a DIY fall craft for myself or my shop! The smaller the cuter in my mind!
So these pumpkins probably sat on this table for a week! After they found their permanent home for the season, another "Pumpkin" decided to joined in for the coffee table decor! Our sandy orange tabby cat was appropriately named Pumpkin when I found his cute orange self as a kitten at a pumpkin farm back in 2013!
There is so much to share with you from Fall 2020! Fall last year was slower paced for sure with occupancy limits in stores and restaurants and general hunkering down. It made the nesting that much more necessary to embrace. The slow pace certainly gave me time to enjoy the season that much more. The very first thing I do when I decorate each season is the mantle. It is to me THE largest seasonal statement in my home and many times it sets the "theme" for the year. I chose to use an old rusty grate and large cutting boards for this mantles back drop. The more layers, the more textures, the better.
After I finish the mantle, it is all up for grabs! Whatever space grabs my attention next gets the fall decor wand! One of my FAVORITE FAVORITE, did I mention FAVORITE places to decorate is my vintage wall. It isn't that it requires a big dose of creativity but I love changing it for the seasons. The drawer boxes - what will they display? The basket at the top? The old wood door in the middle of the frame? The shutter? All these elements can get a dose of the season!
Zooming out, here is the vintage wall again!
The funny thing is I challenge myself every year to do something different. HMMM, what will 2021 hold!? I am on the cusp of Fall 2021, its a little early to "go there" for me in mid August. Back up the upcoming season buss Hobby Lobby! What about Labor Day? Can we wait until Labor Day? But all joking aside, it is great to share content ahead of the season for you my reader because maybe you will find a piece of inspiration or an idea that you can take with you into this fall!
And with this, it is farewell for now! Check back soon for the next blog post on my 2020 Fall Porch. I promise it will send all the cozy fall feel good vibes your way!
