This weekend has been rainy and windy so I decided it would be a good time to add a little fall color around the house.
I used some faux pumpkins, leaves, pine cones, moss and a sunflower to bring in some much needed color.
This vignette on my hutch has been this way for awhile now. I just added the little pumpkin. Now that I look at this picture I think a little burlap or grainsack runner would look so cute on here. I need to strip and refinish this family heirloom someday soon. It's seen a lot of love in it's day.
I shared my Junk mantel decor a few weeks ago but I made a few changes so I will show it again. First I changed out the glass ball jar for a rusty iron urn.
Here's the before. You can see it is a little unbalanced with that jar. I knew it wasn't quite right when I did it but I was in a hurry and so I went with it.
Last thing I added was a little bright green moss I picked up at Joann Fabrics. I love the pop of green. It takes a very neutral display and gives it a little life.
I had everything staged and photographed in a couple hours which is not usual for me. I must have been in the right mood. I'm one of those people who needs a little time to create a display. I have a couple friends who are very good at it and it always amazes me how fast they can put a beautiful display together. I need time to tweak things. I don't like a lot of stuff everywhere so staged displays often look too busy to me at first, but I get there eventually.
