I love the onset of fall. It’s my favorite season…. sweater weather, boots, bon-fires, leaves changing, pumpkin spice everything, rich warm toned colors…. what’s not to love? I’ve started decorating my home and front porch for fall. I’m leaning toward the “less is more” simplicity this year. I feel like it gives touches of seasonal vibes while maintaining some elegance.
I just love Fall- the smells of baked goods, pumpkin (everything), the beautiful colors of the leaves changing, the cooler weather, gathering with friends and family and having a stronger focus on all that we are grateful for.
Nothing says Fall better than pumpkins! I also happen to have a slight problem with my love for (and collection of) throw pillows and blankets. I change out all my throw pillows every season (I’ll be honest- I change them whenever a new color or pattern strikes me too). I love the painted pumpkin pillows I’ve seen in designer stores but haven’t been fond of the price tag! Eek! So, I decided to take a crack at painting my own pillow covers. I wasn’t sure how they would turn out. But they had a sale on linen, zippered pillow covers at Hobby Lobby so I grabbed a few to try painting my pumpkins. Tell me what you think! 🙂 I can’t wait to use them, but I’m holding off until September 1st to start decorating for Fall! 🙂
