Fall Decorating ~ 2014

We had some beautiful weather come back again this week and I decided to hit the attic for my Fall bins while it was cooler.  I have been liking the simple decorating I have been doing the past three years, since we moved, so I knew I was going to keep it simple again.

Coming into the house, on the front door, I hung this narrow basket on the door itself.  It’s a good size and works well since I have a storm door.

The hall tree got a little Fall with some pumpkins from Becky at Timewashed and a fabric tote (Décor Steals) filled with faux leaf bunches (dollar store).   Over the course of 3-4 years, I treated myself to some of Becky’s pumpkins!  This is the first set I purchased from her.

Moving into the living room, I went a little different this year and added my boy and girl busts ~ with hats.

Love these hats!  The girl’s (orange one) I found at Cracker Barrel.  It is actually a “fascinator” and had two clips on either side for a person to wear.  I removed the clips and it fits the bust’s head perfectly.

The boy’s hat is a doll hat from the doll crafting aisle at Hobby Lobby.  I also picked up a few things to embellish it with, which I glued on.

I gave him a little something on the back of the hat so I can turn it around and have him ready to join in for Halloween, too!

I put the big black Paris tote away in the attic for now and brought out my small tote for the coffee table.  I pretty much decorated this as I did last year since I was happy with how it looked.

These florals are bits and bobs from an arrangement that broke and I picked out the florals to keep.  I added in a couple of smaller pumpkins (also from Becky at Timewashed).

I split my Fall decorating up into two posts and next time I will show you the dining area and kitchen.

I have'nt done a single fall thing yet. I looked a little bit in the containers in the garage and all I found were my 3 sweater pumpkins.. Hoping the box of fall decor didnt get trashed- yikes lol. oh well I'll get some leaves and stems , play a bit with those and call it Fall..
ps- my email is acting weird- I had to reply to your comment on my blog.

Everything looks so pretty, Kathy! Your front door basket is perfect and I love the fabric bag full of leaves. That idea is so simple but looks so fallish. Your decor works with a little fall here and there since you have black. Love it!

Hi Kathy, Love your fall decor starting right at the door, which is a great paint color by the way. LOL Mine is very similar.
The hats on your bust figures are adorable and what a great idea to decorate both sides for the boy.
Love the pumpkins from Becky. They are wonderful. I've been on the bandwagon with these pumpkins as well creating a few. Your coffee table tote is the perfect touch with all the natural elements. Your home is gorgeous with less is more!!
Have fun!
