An Apple A Day

10.18.2012

I am so behind sharing how I have been sprucing up the house with little fall touches here and there. I started in September and now we are in the middle of October already. How did that happen? I changed up the plate shelf and the vignette on the chest below a few weeks ago so let's take a look before Christmas gets here.

You can see what the plate shelf looked like before here.

Just a few simple changes were made using some apples and other fruit that just say fall.

I swapped out the ironstone plates in the center of the rack to these fruit ones I bought last year.

Some of the fruit is real and some isn't. Can you tell?





I have had this little apples & blossoms water color for years.



I like the pops of red added with the apples and plates.

I need to hurry up and share the other fall changes made before the holidays get here. Geez.

 The trees are really just starting to show more color here so I don't want to rush fall because I know what is next. Gray. Lots and lots of gray.

I want to take time to enjoy fall before it's gone.

  2. Happy Birthday little one! Time flies...
    Yummy apples are a sign of fall here as well.
    We had a bad frost in April and our Apple trees suffered.

  4. "Someone" is pretty cute! Your fall display is beautiful. Our fall colours are half gone now and then it's the 'in between' season for us in Canada. After Remebrance Day (Nov. 11) I'll start some Christmas decorating. However, I will have to put the fall leaves away soon for that 'in between' season. Challenging! lol Blessings, Pamela

  12. How on earth can she be two years old already?? She is such a darling little lady; I know you're proud of her!

    Your fall touches look so pretty. I love the fruit plates--so elegant. And all the apples look great. Good idea to mix real fruit with faux!

  15. She is so cute, Kim. I can't believe she is 2 already!

    Love the Fall additions at your house. I've decided to plan something more for Christmas than I thought I would. House showings have really slowed. We've decided to take it off the market after the contract is up next month. That opens the door for fun Christmas decorating.
