Pieces of Autumn 2012 ~ Tweaking
It 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…
