~A Little Color on the Porch~

Welcome!  This is what you would find on my front porch if you stopped by to visit today.  Enjoy! xoxo K.
I added a little color to this corner area with this wonderful pastel orange pumpkin and a mum.  I think they mix well with the terracotta pots.
This is an angel vine plant growing wildly in a rusty cast iron urn.
Little white pumpkins mixed with pots....always a favorite of mine! 
This geranium still looks beautiful.  I wish they lasted all year long with their lush green leaves.
I  just realized that these pumpkins remind me of a creamsicle......those were my kids' favorite ice cream bars when they were little:-)  
The weather certainly has changed around here with some blustery days this past week, although yesterday the sun was shining brightly.  I hope you are enjoying Fall and have some fun plans for the weekend!

~Natural Beauty~

The mantel in my bedroom usually changes with the seasons.  It is very narrow so I keep it simple and for Fall this year just added more of the leaves from the living room and one single little baby boo white pumpkin.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I was going to completely change everything, but am still liking the layered frames that I already had leaning against the wall, so a couple bottles filled with leaves and some small french books were added.  This way I'll be able to start with a blank slate for Christmas:-)

White roses on my nightstand are always a favorite.

Many of the leaves have been slow to turn color this year and I think I like the green ones in my home this year better anyways.  It's so easy to find items to decorate with out in nature and I think these leaves are a perfect way to add a touch of Fall to any area in your home.

Have a great week!

~Seasonal Simplicity~

I don't usually change things too much in my home this time of year, but instead add seasonal items to my existing decor.  My trophies were already on the mantel so I just decided to add flowers and pumpkins to them.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

A couple mums added to the urns and some leaves in the canvas bag hanging on the ladder were both easy additions.

I think simple is best, don't you?

Enjoy your weekend!

~The Softer Side of Fall~

It's been absolutely beautiful here in the PNW  lately and I've been adding some Fall touches to my home.  The dining room got a simple look with some green pumpkins, white baby boos and gourds along with white mums and  snow berries.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

These white berries grow wild on shrubs down by our pond.  They look the best this time of year before the berries turn brown and the leaves fall off and since  I don't really have very much left blooming, I decided to use them on the table.

I added some baby boos and a few white gourds that we grew in the garden this year with the ironstone in this corner cupboard.

I love all the crazing on some of these pieces.

I kept this sideboard pretty simple by just adding a mum and more pumpkins and gourds.

I am going to enjoy the dry warm weather the rest of this week before the rains are supposed to return this weekend.  I hope you have a wonderful week as well!

~Autumn has Arrived~

I can hardly believe it's the last day of September already, yet Autumn has certainly arrived here this last week with cooler temps and rain.
Leaves are starting to turn color and I've gotten a few pumpkins to decorate with.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.
I generally tend to like the softer colors of pumpkins, but this Cinderella pumpkin really caught my eye.
The change in weather has finally gotten me in the mood for Fall decorating inside and out and will be sharing with you throughout the month of October.

Have a nice week!

~Cheery Sunflowers~

The sun is back today after some much needed rain showers.  It is supposed to stay dry over the weekend so I'll be outside starting the cutting back process of my garden. 

Many of my sunflowers stalks were falling over from the heavy rain, so I tried to salvage as many blooms as I could to bring inside.  Enjoy!  xoxo K. 

 I like the pop of color they bring to this area of my dining room.  

I'm finally getting in the mood for Fall and have been scouring my "Fall Inspiration" Pinterest board lately to get ideas for what I want to do this year.

I had a great day yesterday with my Mom gathering some pumpkins, mums and pansies for the pots on my porch and patio.   It's always a fun time of year to visit garden centers.

Have a wonderful weekend!
