Autumn’s Arrival ~ Part 3

Better late than never.
I finally took a few minutes yesterday 
to add a little Autumn to my living room.
This room is still in a state of, shall we say, undecidedness?
(Not sure that’s a word.)
Yet to do:
Make window panels.
Cover stools under sofa table.
Hang something over sofa.
Waiting on:
Slipcovers. (Check out my new sponsor.)
Slipper chairs from Target.
(Have you seen Sabrina Soto’s new show on HGTV?
The High Low Project. She shops at Target on every episode.)
So since I really have no idea when 
any of this will get accomplished,
I decided to just go for it and get some stuff out.
The sofa table in it’s new spot.
I am really struggling with the white walls.
I thought I would love them but they are a challenge.
I’ll get it though.
Gourds, moss balls and mini pumpkins.
This is the closest thing I can find around here to a white pumpkin.
Still looking.
I got 2 bags of gourds at Kroger.
I know I paid more than I should
but there’s something to be said for convenience.
End table.
Check out my new lamp. I have 2 of these beauties.
Under $100.00 at
Leaf plate from TJMaxx.
Little pumpkins from a local store call The Homestead.
Other end table.
White pumpkin is not real…but the berries and silver tray help it out a bit.
Have a great week everyone…
I’m still working on filling up my Etsy Shop.
I’ve recently found a new source for vintage fabric.
Gotta get to work.

    I think that it's looking beautiful! The touches of autumn really brighten up the room!

    The lamps are stunning!

    I have white walls in my living room, but little of it shows at this point after 40 years! lol

  3. CalypsoInTheCountry says:

    I love your wire basket and all of the fall decor – nice job! Thanks for stopping by with your sweet comment!

  4. Beautiful touches of Fall! Your new lamps are gorgeous … and, I look forward to seeing your wonderful room as your cross items off of your "to do" list. :)

  5. Jo's This and That says:

    Looks wonderful! Thanks for sharing,JoAnn

  6. Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads says:

    I love your new lamps and all your fall touches. I love your gourds in the wire basket. I threw some decorative gourds in the compost bin 2 years ago. The next spring the seeds sprouted. I transferred the plants into the garden, and I had a lot of gourds that I used in decorating last fall. Only had a few this year.

  7. Ivy and Elephants says:

    Oh you are so much farther along than me! I love your little touches, just the right hint with the white. I love it!

  8. Sherry @ No Minimalist Here says:

    Hi Ann, Your Fall decor is lovely! Your new lamps are beautiful and perfect for your room.

  9. Hi Anne, I love the new lamps. And you have added some beautiful fall touches. I'm currently struggling with white walls also in the living room. I want to go off white but hesitant. It does make for a beautiful backdrop for lots of color and seems to be the thing to do now!

    Lovely, you're inspiring me to do a bit of a primp around here too.

  11. Tammy @BeatriceBanks says:

    Looking like fall! I'm so far behind, haven't even pulled out any fall decor yet. Is that a chevron pillow I spy? Love, love! So you've ordered slipcovers? Can't wait to see how those turn out. I've contemplated it myself.

  12. Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow says:

    I'm finally starting to 'feel' fall!! Your home is looking very festive for the season! blessings ~ tanna

  13. Hello my friend,
    Your fall decor is lovely! I love the gourds in the bowl, the white ceramic pumpkin is so pretty, I am really wanting a couple of those. I may end up getting a couple yet.
    Your living room is beautiful.
    Hugs, Cindy

  14. At The Picket Fence says:

    Beautiful Fall touches Ann! I'm loving your chevron pillow on your sofa too! :-)

  15. I really love those lamps. They're substantial without being overwhelming. Very pretty.

  16. Everything is looking good! I've read that if you want a white pumpkin and can't find one or have others in colors you don't want, you can paint them white! I think that's a good idea. Sometimes they're hard to find.

  17. Blondie's Journal says:

    Perfect fall touches, Ann! I really love those lamps!


  18. Something Nice and Pretty says:

    I do love your new lamps Anne! I always shop at Macy's, just bought a new comforter there but I'm taking it back just isn't what I want but the price was great!
    I like the faux pumpkins much better than the real they always rot on me! Your real and faux ones look just lovely!

  19. Pamela Gordon says:

    It all looks very nice. I like the black basket of gourds on the hall table. Have a great week!

  20. Cute pumpkin looks. Love your chicken wire basket with the gourds. Have a great Monday.

  21. Pat@Back Porch Musings says:

    Beautiful autumn at your house, Ann.

  22. Ginger Zuck says:

    Ann, everything is very lovely. I love your new lamps, they are beautiful. Love the end table too, everything is just beautiful!

  23. ❀❀❀Ðαωᾔ❀❀❀ says:

    Your fall decor is beautiful and I like the new lamps. Can't wait to see what you do on the wall behind the sofa. Let us know when you add new stock to your Etsy store with the new vintage fabric finds:)

  24. Love your new lamps, and what a bargin. Great fall touches, I love the real gourds you got at Kroger.

  25. Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes says:

    Ann, your decorating is coming along nicely. Each of those little vignettes look perfect and add such pretty fall colors to the room. The leaf plate is very pretty.—–Shannon

  26. Little by little, but I am nowhere near where you are! Well done – I think it looks lovely.

  27. classic • casual • home says:

    I just did the same sort of thing…great minds :)

  28. marty (A Stroll Thru Life) says:

    Your gourds and pumpkins are all wonderful, lovely vignettes. Great leaf plates, and the new lamps are fabulous. Hugs, Marty

  29. So pretty Ann, love your fall touches!

  30. Ann@A Sentimental Life says:

    I have not even started yet..too busy with a minor kitchen remodel.
    love the white pumpkin in the silver me some ideas!

  31. Cozy Little House says:

    Oh, I'm so gonna miss decorating for fall! One of my favorite seasons too. But alas, I am packing. I think you've done a fantastic job. You will learn to embrace the white walls I think. A perfect canvas. In fact I have my daughter over at the little blue house painting the kitchen white.

  32. Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Flea Market Makeovers says:

    You are way ahead of me! Fall is looking lovely at your home.

  33. Richard Cottrell says:

    You are not the only one late, I keep putting it off thinking winter will be that much further away. Thanks for sharing, Richard from My Old Historic House.

  34. Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life says:

    I love your fall touches. The pumpkins with the Halloween writing are so cute. I agree the fall gourds are worth it. They just add such a nice fall touch.
