~Decorating with the Colors of Autumn

This time of year I am reminded how much I love the colors of pumpkins and fall leaves. Thank you to all of you who have posted fall pictures!

Although orange is not on my favorites list at all, there are muted colors in pumpkins & leaves that are so beautiful to me and I just crave them more this time of year. Rust, muted reds, terracotta, deepest golds, burnt orange and a million variations.........yum!

I need to take the Boo Sign off the front door and turn the Jack-O-Lanterns around so they are just pumpkins again.

The entry table hopefully will get a new arrangement sometime today to greet Autumn instead of celebrating Halloween.

This picture is from a couple of years ago with my favorite pumpkin. Now what shall we put there this year? Time to go find all those Autumn colors. Don't you just love this time of year?

Wishing you all a most wonderful Friday & Weekend!

  3. Donna, your floral arrangements are always just perfect, so I'm sure you'll come up with another creative one for that space. I love this one totally! Hey, I mentioned you today, so come on over. Don't look too closely at my corbel glazing, please. ;)

  11. Gosh, Donners, how many years have passed since you began your gorgeous wall paint techniques in yellows and ochres? Time flies...but the results are timeless! They're as lovely today as they were back then!
