Falling for Fall

I love autumn. It is by far my favorite time of year. One thing I love about autumn is being able to decorate my house with leaves, pumpkins and scarecrows. Obviously, this autumn is going to be a little different for our family as we're going to be spending it adjusting to having a little one kicking around. I decided that I did not want to forgo the things I love about fall, so I decorated last week, a little early, in order to ensure that it was done before the Monkey arrived (are we surprised?). I haven't really picked up many new fall decorations since last year, so if you've been a reader for a while, you have probably seen a number of my decorations but I thought I'd share anyway!

I will let the photos do the talking....

An autumn table runner and gourd candle holders

The dining room

The living room

The hearth - my favorite space in the fall

The pumpkins tucked away in the corner

The bathroom doesn't have many decorations but this little wagon adds a little fall touch

Scarecrows everywhere...
My pumpkin nightlight. One of my favs!

The kitchen

I love the scent of fall as well. Starting in September I almost always have a candle burning. This year, my choice scents are Harvest Pear and Cranberry Orange. Delish!
What do you do to make your home cozy for fall?

I just cozied up my house last night for Fall. I almost didn't as we have a bunch of reno stuff going on and things are sort of everywhere. (Crib in the dining room, tools in a corner, alllll the baby stuff in the living room, ect) but I decided I just needed some Fall. It's my favorite! Can I just tell you how much I love your hearth? I bet that is so nice to cozy up in front of in the winter. Hope you are feeling great! Your little monkey is coming SOOOON!!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one that wants to decorate for fall already!! Bad thing is...most of my fall decor is Halloween related. Ha! Love the decorations!!

Love it! My decorations are in my attic in my house (we're in a rental 1.5 hrs away) and renting the house. Anyway, I think I may sneak over to Pier 1 for a few fall things. :)
P.S. I too love our hearth (in our house)!! It just seems like a great symbol of warmth :)

I LOVE fall and decorating for it! I can't wait to get a whiff of that fresh, crisp fall air. It's still REALLY hot here in TX...

Fall is most certainly in the air... and you've reminded me that I can pull out my fall-leaf towels :) YEA!!

I love your dining room wall arrangement -- that's quite similar to what I hope to put up in ours (including our Willow Tree Figurines!!). Now, I'll think of you when we finally get it up :)
