Welcome Fall.......

Today is the "official" first day of fall, BUT.......It feels like anything but fall here in NE Louisiana. It appears that this week is going to be in the low 90's and that is a nice drop from the 100+ degrees we've endured the past 2-3 weeks.  So, if those temps will keep right on falling then perhaps we'll be "officially" into fall before too much longer.

In spite of the high temps I put out my fall touches a couple of weeks ago.  I was more than ready for "all things fall."  I found these jeweled place mats at Homegoods when we were in Atlanta a few weeks ago and they work so well as the surface for some of my touches.  And, I got my jeweled pumpkin table runner at Pier 1 about 3 years ago and just love it.

I had a good time getting my tiered tray decked out with all things fall.  Between Amazon, Hobby Lobby and Etsy, I thought it turned out really cute.

Over the past few years I have picked up these touches at Homegoods, Tuesday Morning and this year I ordered the beautiful bronze leaf bowl (lower left hand picture) for the sideboard from Wayfair and the decorative pumpkins from Amazon.  Their all very simple but make a nice fall statement.

This little antique children's bench always looks nice with a decorative pillow(s) for the various seasons or holidays. Homegoods has the most wonderful selection of decorative pillows.

I am so proud of this new arrangement for our dining table.  Since moving in our new house 4 years ago I've  used the same arrangement pretty much all year long.  But, I decided that I wanted to change and use something that would be appropriate from now until spring.  The other arrangement will be perfect for spring until fall.  I do remove them if we use the dining table and I generally use something different at Christmas.  These arrangement are so big and tall that storage for them can be very challenging.  Thus, the reason I only want two of them. 

And, that is my "fall touches" that await falls arrival. 

And, I leave you with this sweet picture of Bridget and her boys.  This was one of the many pictures taken during Case' newborn photo session. When I saw this it made my heart smile really BIG!!!

Happy Fall Y'all!!!!!

  1. Such a great picture of Bridgette and her boys! Love all your touches of Fall! Now, if the weather would just cooperate, but I have noticed a drop in the humidity this weekend!

  2. I love the picture of Bridget with her sons. You can really see the joy on her face, and it just sums up that stage of motherhood...busy, but so happy! Hope you have a great week!

  3. Lots of lovely Fall touches around your home, Lea. I especially love your new arrangement. Pic of your daughter and grandchildren is too cute, hopefully one you'll be able to frame.

  4. Everything looks lovely and yes, I tend to want to believe that fall inside makes it seem more like fall outside for some reason.

  5. What sweet Fall touches Lea. Our temps are suppose to be around 95 or so this week. Was so nice this morning though. Like 64 at 7:30 am. I loved it! What a precious picture of your sweet girl and grands. Nothing like a new baby in the family to bring excitement and joy to the family. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. You truly know how to decorate for any season, Lea! Your autumn touches are stunning!

    And Bridget with her sons -- Love this picture!

  7. All your fall decorations look fabulous. I've put out a few too but want to do some more. I am sick, sick, sick that I didn't grab the 3-tier tray I saw at Hobby Lobby couple weeks ago for 50% off!!! I even had it in my buggy at one point, but talked myself out of it because I didn't really know where I would put it. I think I'll ask for one for Christmas...and then figure out where it can go:) Love the pic of Mama and her 3 boys...I love casual, real-life photos. You are truly blessed:)

  8. Oh my heart...that pic of beautiful Bridget and her cute. Reminds me of me with my 3. And lady....such gorgeous Fall touches. You did soooo good. Hugs!
