Hello Fall!

Fall is making it's official arrival on Friday September 22, but I think we've all been ready for a while to make the switch in our home decor from Summer to Fall. Do you change your home decor with the seasons, I sure do!
I've decided to keep it simple this year and change some summer colors and fabrics for darker colors and just add some pumpkins here and there. 

 Right above my phone table at the entrance of my family room I used to have a small mirror... but I just change it for this picture. It is a landscape of trees and fields reflected in a lake. I love the color and the scenery. I found it so pretty and serene. Very Fallish, don't you think?

As the center piece for my coffee table I use a dough bowl filled with velvet pumpkins.

The dough bowl is from Decor Steals and I found the velvet pumpkins at my local grocery store of all places!! I was very excited to find navy blue pumpkins, I would of never expected pumpkins in navy blue, but they go perfectly with the color scheme of the family room.

Very simple mantle place this fall, I simply added a small trophy cup with a couple of pumpkins and I called it a day. I kept the rest as it was before!

I had a piece of white coral in this golden tray for the Summer. I simply switch it for some antlers, I don't know why they say Fall to me! 

Adding pumpkins in unexpected places is a very easy way to add fall touches through out the house!

An assortment of.... Well... of course pumpkins on top of the kitchen hutch!!

This beautiful dough bowl is being the center piece of my kitchen island for a while. It is too pretty not to enjoy it everyday. The contents change with the seasons. now it's sporting some birch branches, moss balls, bird nest, lavender and of course pumpkins! 

I stayed away from the traditional orange pumpkins. I went for the more neutral colors like white, greens and blues. 

Are you ready for fall?
Thanks so much for stopping by!! :)

Brimfield Treasures

Yesterday I shared my last tip to Brimfield, you can read about it HERE. Today I'll show you the  things that came home with me! 

I've been wishing for a Tobacco basket for a while, they could be a bit price sometimes... I found this reproduction for $45 and I thought it was the perfect size, color and price!! As of right now it is on my foyer table. It's very versatile so I am sure it will find a lot of different places to live thru out my home!

It is very interesting to me to see the creativity of some vendors. I really like the woman where I purchased this bundle from, I always buy something from her. These are a few bundles all tied up together of lavender clippings... They were advertised as fire starters for your fireplace... but to be honest, I find them too pretty to throw them in a fire!! So they are on my Fall dough bowl display on my kitchen island. They add texture and interest to the arrangement! 
That sweet little nest is also a Brimfield find. The little note says "Home Sweet Home" and it has some tiny fall flowers, pretty perfect for this time of year. It is also on my fall dough bowl. 

A couple years ago I found a marble lamp, It's been on a side table in my living room, I was very excited to find another one for the table on the other side of the fireplace. 

They balance the fireplace out and the space looks so much more cohesive now with similar lamps. 

I got some more antlers to add to my collection! I love the color and texture for the Fall! 

This lavender bouquet it's beautifully wrapped in burlap and it smells divine!! it's also on the dough bowl in the kitchen island. I love the contrast of the lavender with the pumpkins and the fall feel of the arrangement. 

A couple of pieces of Ironstone to add to my collection. The white pitcher and the beautiful oval bowl with scalloped edges. 

And this cute and versatile organizer... I am not exactly sure what is it's real purpose... It was displayed with candles where I purchased it from. So may be it is a candle holder... How ever I like it as a desk organizer it can move around wherever homework is done and it can hole a bunch of different supplies. In my case, I filled it up with erasers (God knows we use a lot of those when doing homework!), color pencils, regular pencils, scissors and glue sticks. So we have everything at out finger tips and we can finish homework in no time!! ;)

And last but not least, this beautiful picture!! I love of course the cow, to go with my cow themed breakfast nook, but the color of the frame goes perfectly with the rest of my kitchen and the chippiness of it it's just perfect!! I love this picture so much! 

I do not like it in this location but until I rearrange things around and find it a better place it is keeping Shelia Jones company.  

I hope you enjoyed my bounty! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

A couple of weeks ago it was the Fall Brimfield Antique Show. I have been attending this show for the 10 years I have been in New England. It is so much FUN!!! I went with a great friend and we had a blast treasure hunting and enjoying delicious cider donuts and kettle corn! YUM!!!
This is a HUGE show, fields and fields of antiques and vintage treasures, miles and miles of goodness... You definitely need more than one day to see it all. The show goes from Tuesday to Sunday. We went on Saturday and found plenty of goodies!

Attention: Pictures galore!!! You might want to grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, depending what time you are reading!! :)

After a two hour car ride, we are here!! Very exciting!!! 

 Brimfield is a really beautiful, peaceful and serene place.

Gorgeous mirrors, I have a thing for mirrors...

This one almost came home with me... It was only $250, unbelievable price... But I really don't have any space for it... I will need to get rid of my hutch on my dining room and I kind of like it as is, so I left this one behind... It is a French piece who came to MA via England!!

How sweet is this!!!

I want one of these so bad! Aren't they gorgeous!

This booth was chair Heaven!

I love bird cages... this ones are adorable!

I got my heart going really fast at this booth, those Mora clocks really wanted to come home with me, but at over $3,000 this mama couldn't do it!! :(

Hello gorgeous!!! 

Oh so much goodness, right??? So much Inspiration, I always come home from Brimfield ready to redecorate, and with so many projects and ideas in mine!! 
It was a great fun day... Only a few treasures came home with me... Make sure to come back tomorrow to see them in my home!! 
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great Monday!!
