A Little Fall Y'all

9.23.2011

I held out as long as I could, but now the weather is finally feeling more like fall plus seeing all the inspiration in blog land I just had to give in and start adding touches of fall. The first room I started in is the dining room. I just couldn't wait to fill my huge old dough bowl.


I went to a produce stand and bought the blue colored pumpkins, a large yellow squash gourd, and white pumpkins.

Added a couple of large faux acorns that I purchased last year and my tiny pear gourds.

I piled it all in the bowl and then decided to stuff in some raffia for extra oomph.



Found these wooden candlesticks at Home Goods for only $12.

 The silver ones are from the antique mall. The pair was only $12 and they cleaned up nicely.




Oh, and I haven't show y'all my new zig zag seagrass rug from Overstock.com. It is by Safavieh and was a really great price, too.

Happy Fall Y'all

  1. You are truly a girl after my own heart! I LOVE blue/gray pumpkins (Ghost or Shadow pumpkins their called in these parts)... been using them for years in my fall decor. I haven't seen them available here in the DFW, Texas area yet, but I have eye out for them!

  47. I have never heard or seen the blue (ghost) pumpkins, wonder if there is a spraypaint in that color? I think you started something Kim!
    I'll have to try that with the wood one I have, right now it's under my coffee table with magazines in it, still there from Deb's copy cat photo.:)
    Fantastic diningroom, who wouldn't want to sit there for Thanksgiving dinner! In fact I'm pinning it, starting a new board for diningrooms!

  60. It looks wonderful Kim! I finally drug out all my fall as well. There are messes everywhere but I hope to be completed by this evening or in the morning. Otherwise it will drive me insane. Our cooler weather consists of 94 degrees but I guess that is better than 110!

  61. Hi Kim,

  66. I love your fall display but I have to ask you about the rug. I was just shopping over at Overstock for rugs. Love this one. Is it rough to walk on? I'm looking for one for my living room and I don't want anything too rough to sit on. Love it in the dining room!
