Pieces of Autumn 2012 ~ Tweaking

Easy Autumn DecorIt officially feels like fall.

A nip in the air. Nuts and squirrels everywhere.

Green grass (which I thought was for sure dead in July.)

The sun was shining through my sort of clean windows this morning and I was inspired to welcome autumn with open arms. I just added a few bits and pieces to my antique dresser. Tweaking so to speak.

First thing I did was add the grain sack pillows to bring in just a little more blue. 

My enamelware pitcher adds a bit more blue…which is always a good thing.

Dried hydrangeas and pink asters bring in another pop of color.

The two gold leaf plates were a long-ago purchase at TJMaxx and I still think they are perfect for fall.

Some gold ribbon and mini sunflowers tie in with the plates. I had the ivy from my summer front door basket. I just stuck the pill bottles I used in the door basket inside the pitchers. That way I can easily remove them if I want to.

It really doesn’t take much to tweak a space and usher in a new season. A few minutes and things you love are all you need.

When I went outside to pick the asters I noticed that my bittersweet berries were finally turning yellow. In another week or so they will be ready to cut.

I have lost track of when I planted this. It’s been at least 3 or 4 years. Last year I got just a few branches with a few berries.

This year I’m hoping to fill buckets and pitchers with bittersweet and scatter them all over my house. I can’t wait…but my excitement was not shared by Kelly. She gave up on me and hit the couch. I’m quite sure a nap is next on her agenda.

Wishing everyone a wonderful week…
