A Little Fall

I ran around and snapped a few pictures of fall around the house.  
I am very unorganized this year.
That's why these pictures are of little snips here and there.  I can't widen out the shot and show the whole room.
It wouldn't be a pretty picture.

This is the hutch in my kitchen.
I see I left a box of candles on the bottom shelf.  That's how I am rolling around here these days.

I love my checked and polka dotted silverware.  The smaller bowls have polka dots too.

A blurry shot of the dining room.  The compote in the middle is carnival glass I think.  I inherited it from my aunt and I guess it was something she treasured very much.  I'm not so crazy about it and keep it stored away, but thought I could use it in the fall with a few pumpkins in it.
I'm not loving it though, so maybe it will just grace the table on Thanksgiving instead.  

A fall candle burns on the entry table along with a favorite picture of my girls in the leaves in the leaf frame.  It's not so washed out, that's my photography skills.

This was my fall reading to get me in the nesting mode.  Almost worked.

A gift from a friend.

My kitchen table centerpiece.  There is a little strand of pumpkin lights that looks great at night.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am joining Melissa at The Inspired Room for her Fall Around the House Party.
And Sherry at No Minimalist Here for her Open House Party.
Richella at Imparting Grace for her Grace at Home Party.

It all looks good. I'm still out of town keeping Daven (andy loving every second), but I'm looking forward to doing a little decorating myself soon. It definitely still felt like summer when I left Florida last week...maybe it will be cooler when I get home ?

I love to add little decorative bits all over the house, and I see that you do, too! I especially like your kitchen table centerpiece and those darling dishes and cutlery--so cute! Everything looks really pretty.

Well, I think it all looks great, and you made me laugh with the "it almost worked" comment. Ha!

I'm trying to nest, but I have a very, very good reason to be distracted from homemaking. Both of the daughters are home this week so I'm busy with the mothering instead.

Given the choice, you know I always choose mothering.
