Friday's Favs...Pumpkins and other fall finery


Whoooo's ready for fall?
This Sunday is the first day of autumn.
I'm ready for it!

This "green pumpkin" is technically a hubbard squash according to the sticker on it.
But, whooooo cares?  
It looks very fall-ish to me sitting next to my favorite antique Shawnee pottery owls.


In the living room touches of fall are here, there, everywhere.
From stalks of golden wheat plopped into an old bucket and hanging from an old ladder to...


simple fall garlands adorning a mirror...


pumpkins placed next to vintage cameras, and acorn adorned soda bottles...



real white pumpkins along with ceramic pumpkins in an antique wooden cubby...


felt fall pumpkins and acorn under glass...



and even the mantel is all ready for fall!
But we'll keep you in suspense about that until next week.


The kitchen window has a little fall garland.


And the copycat Restoration Hardware shelves in my dining room, are sporting a few pumpkins as well.


It's not only almost autumn, friends,
it's almost Friday!

Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
and
a BLESSED weekend.

    1. Debra, Anthropologie has a new version of this vintage owl cookie jar originally made by the Shawnee Pottery co. in the forties. I was thrilled when some sweet friends bought me a real vintage one, instead of a newer copy.

    1. I love my wooden cubby too. I got it at a local antique mall. I just had to get it when I saw that it was on sale and that the wood matched my antique library table perfectly. Paired together they look like they were made for each other!

  7. I picked goldenrod today--and the morning temps have dipped to the 50's. Yay for fall.

  10. Fall is definitely in the air in the middle Atlantic. I love that you decorate. I'm still searching for my routine. I doubt there will be any fall decorations at this house.

    1. I am definitely one who loves to putter and change things up around the house. That's just not everyone's cup of tea. If we were all alike, what a boring world it would be!
