Whooo loves autumn?


(Kim's flow texture, screen mode, 25% opacity)

On a shelf in my dining room sits my vintage Shawnee owl cookie jar and salt and pepper shakers.
(Anthropologie carries a reproduction of this owl, but this is an original.)
Next to my owl is a pumpkin-like squash, which is the same shade of green as the accents on my owl.

I really love the more non-traditional colors of pumpkins and squash to decorate with.

 I also really love my owl,  a gift from two dear friends.
And as much as I love summer, I'm also in love with autumn.
Each season has things about it to love.

    1. I love all of the fall colors, too. In my small house, one year I went for the brighter fall colors-a riot of orange EVERYWHERE! It was so loud and overpowering that I've gone for a lighter touch recently. Outdoors however, the brighter oranges, golds, yellows and reds are an autumn necessity!

  5. I love your autumn colors. I do have some orange here, in the form of pumpkins, but most of all I have autumn stuff that I have brought in from outside that has a more muted tone to it.

    I'm planning to try whitewashing some pumpkins, but I haven't done it yet.

    I love your owls. I think I remember when you found the little ones and blogged about it, but I might be confusing you with someone else.

  6. I found the little salt and peppers at an antique mall in Nebraska while at a blogging/writing conference. The cookie jar was admired by me while antiquing with two friends from church, I really wanted him, but didn't feel I could spend the money at the time. My friends bought him for me and surprised me with him. It makes me love him even more.
    I've never heard of whitewashing pumpkins! We can just buy the white ones here. I can't wait to see what you do with yours.

  8. I like your pumpkin and owls. I too like pumpkins in non traditional colors as well as traditional. I try to look for ones that have varying stripes of different colors and shapes slightly different from the normal round ones.

    1. I guess these are technically a squash, but aren't all pumpkins a type of squash? I have no idea!

  15. I love the first one with the leaves because the pumpkin is cropped off a little. I'm trying to find a grey pumpkin around here. So far none.

  17. I think you should own a store! I really do. I can totally see you in a little boutique in a kitschy part of town. I think it should be called Mrs. Elizabeth's that way everyone can come see you and enjoy how you do things. But until then I get to come here very week and enjoy what you do, love that.
