I’m a notorious over doer.
Last fall I had so much fall décor going on in my little house it basically looked like an orange explosion.
Then I weeded out the excess and was a lot happier with the result.
This year I tried to go simple right from the start.
Less “orange explosion”, and more calm and peaceful neutrals.
I removed a large painting and wall sconces from the wall above the mantel,
using this chippy old window as the focal point instead.
Even my choice of pumpkin colors this year is more subtle.
I’m looking for some type of vintage autumn card to perch in this old flower frog.
I love my carved wooden goose.
I bought it in Maine on our visit there 10 years ago.
A simple decoration of Indian corn held by twine hangs on the old window.
I’m liking this year’s simple, less “over the top” mantel!
