The Cottage is Dressed for Autumn



It is no secret that I love decorating for Fall.  

It is one of our most vibrantly colorful seasons,

 

so I begin

 

dressing up the Cottage room by room

 

on the First of

 

September. . 




The first room to be adorned is always
The Living Room.
I started with this Hutch, a Gift to my sister and I
for our bedroom years ago from my Aunt June.
I love using Plates, Cloth, and Ribbon to bring in the
vibrant colors of the Fall Season.







 

I'll be sharing some peeks at ways

 in which I have spruced up our home

for the Autumn in the following pages

 

 of this post...









I love to place twinkling white lights outside on the front porch to greet my visitors and guests on these dark evenings.   Mums and yellow marigolds are abundant in pots on the porch, with smatterings of Scarecrow figures and a Pumpkin here and there. 










      I save seeds of chia, alyssum, and flax to scatter when the frost kills
the hotter thriving plants in my pots, so I still have a green,
lush backdrop into which I place
more jewel toned blooms, pumpkins,
wooden signs, and articles of the season.




To the Right of the Hearth is a vignette of fall. 

                               


 

 

 

I place messages on the

 

plaid message board,

such as

 

"Welcome, Friends,"
















A simple vignette with pumpkins,
books, a bird, and teapot





This is one of the first places
 upon which

 the eye rests entering the

Living Room.  I love to make


little vignettes for the shelves.






Outside are all the signs of
the Harvest Season

The  back porch garden has a Scarecrow
So cute!
Scarecrow  Face made entirely of items for the Birds to eat!
Three Tall Scarecrows stand guard out front in the yard

spruced up your home
