This week the evenings have been getting a bit cooler and the mornings have a bit of a chill.  Fall is nearly upon us and I’m looking forward to the smells that come with fall.

Welcome to our great room filled with hydrangea dried to show their seasonal beauty and grace.  Gathered in my antique jardinière from France.  I’ve had this for a few years now and I love the statement this makes on the buffet.

This piece will be getting a new paint color to work with the new colors going through the room.  I would like to get it finished before the holidays.  I may take a break because since I’ve been feeling better it’s been projects galore.

Nothing better to compliment hydrangeas than baby boo pumpkins on candleholders.  I was excited when my husband came home with a bunch to scatter around in the house.

Take a look at this pretty romantic touch with another baby boo beside it and the natural look with nuts nestled along its side.

 I decided Saturday to make a small vignette next to the buffet where an antique trunk we have had for many years resides.  Taking a que from nature I added the pumpkins with vintage aged flower pots.  Adding a grain sac cloth I had on hand and adding some natural nuts with one hydrangea ties in beautifully with this soft look.

Moving to our bookcase was a fun spot to add some easy and natural touches.  The large wire basket on the top shelf, antique transferware, ironstone and copper are my anchor pieces.  Copper is a perfect touch anytime of year but fall is a it’s instant warmth in my opinion.

This aged bell and book add warmth with a book used as riser for added character.  Doesn’t the tiny bud look pretty?

I’m loving these dried artichokes in this antique piece of transferware.  Using what’s natural for the fall season is an easy and rustic touch.

This antique compote is another favorite piece of mine.  Adding the hydrangea with a small metal crown adds a whimsical touch.   Aren’t these velvet pumpkins cute with the acorn?

Nothing says fall like a bundle of dried lavender.   I nestled an acorn branch I gathered from our old house.  Sprayed with poly it’s holding up great at six years old.  I can’t help but add rustic crowns where I can, I truly love the feel they add.

This Florentine picture is a new addition and I love the sepia feel of the image.  I received this as a gift from the Etsy shop from which I purchased another piece.  Who doesn’t love antique books?

 Pheasant feathers are in this pretty footed copper piece.  The patina and feet touches grab my heart as the blue of the plate ties to the lavender

One of the first things that say fall to me are acorns.  Yes, these are real and yes this tureen is filled.  I know a bit of an obsession but I couldn’t help myself.  The book beneath was well loved by another.  The blue plate brings in an addition of the lavender color.

Adding this throw to our couch can warm us up when the chillier evenings begin to keep us warm.

My love for lavender continues on our coffee table in this pretty majolica pitcher.  The barrel beneath I love for its texture and warmth.

Lastly, is this end table that has a crown and candle that burns every late afternoon through mid evening.  Antique doorknobs from France add a great touch with a small lock resting on the surface.

Are you getting ready for the change of seasons too?
