Fall is all around us. In some parts of the country, especially up in the Northeast, fall has given way to a snowy blanket.
Not here, though. After what seems like months of rain, the clouds are gone and the sky is again blue. This being our first fall season in our new digs, I felt the urge to do a little decorating. Wouldn’t you know it, the first, very first
box I pulled out had all of my autumn decorations. Good thing for me, otherwise the hubby would probably have given me
“the look”. Shh…don’t tell him I still want my Halloween Department 56 house out for Jack to delight in.
These are just some random shots around the castle. Can you tell I love these colors? I find fall colors very restful and calming.
I’ll never be a fan of the modern look. Nope, not me. I tried it when we first got married and well, I buried that bad
ideas decades ago!
I still cannot get over the fact that my favorite aunt gave me this china. It once belonged to her Aunt Marion. This
set is named Indian Tree and manufactured by Spode. Four settings are at least 125 years old and the other settings
are newer. You may think I am a very brave person to hang these on the wall, but the antique settings are safely tucked
away in the sideboard.
This lovely little silver candlestick refuses to take on a fabulous shine. I’ve tried every cleaner there is
and to no avail it still is dull.
What colors do you gravitate towards when it comes to home decor?
Do you go for the modern look, an eclectic combination or a traditional girl at heart?
