Adding Some Small Fall Touches

I thought I should share some small FALL touches I've added to the house, 
before it's time to break out the Christmas decorations...

I'm not really one to go overboard inside my home for Fall.
 I'm not into the scary Halloween type of decorations.  
In fact, truth be told, I don't like to be scared and I shied away from homes
that were decorated that way when I was younger and out trick or treating.

Pumpkins and Mums are my go-to Fall decorations.

I purchased this "lovely" a few weeks ago on a trip to Target. 
He was $7.00 and more than I would have typically spent on something like this,
 but I had a giftcard, so that justified it for me.  

I added him to the vignette on the sofa table in the livingroom.

This copper mercury glass pumpkin I picked up at Home Sense last year on clearance after Halloween. 
 He's been in storage every since and I was happy to find him in one of my boxes.

This beauty I also purchased last year.

This guy is a permanent fixture on my kitchen counter.

I found this little velvet beauty on clearance at a small gift shop in our area.
And added to the vignette with the Target jute pumpkin.

I love the texture they bring to this area of my home.

A few more glass pumpkins found their way into vignettes on the end tables in the living room.

I hope your enjoying great Fall weather in your area,
and decorating your home for the season!

Happy Thanksgiving and Fall Decorating on the Porch

It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada.

We are celebrating today with McG's family here at our home.

I have two turkeys cooking in electric ovens in the garage
...twice the stuffing and twice the dark meat!

I thought I'd show you today the Fall decor on our front porch.
I'm excited to have a porch at this house,
it's  like having another room to decorate!

I don't do "scary" for Fall and Halloween, mostly because
I'm a "scare-dy cat"!

This wreath I brought with me from the other house.

As well as this metal box filled with flowers that I used on my front door last fall.

I've added some pillows to the table and chairs and a few "faux" pumpkins and gourds.

Wishing you a great weekend 
Happy Thanksgiving from here in Ontario Canada!
