An Autumn Vignette

Pin It

Hello, everybody! It's the beginning of another autumn week, and I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. I have been  busy "falliying" my home lately :)

 An autumnal home in color sketch.

I don't know about you, but for me the holiday season starts from October.

For the next three months, I can deck the halls and rooms in holiday colors and have so much fun with it!

From Halloween till Christmas, it's a celebration of seasons in my home:

It's the small touches that makes a house a home:

Sprigs of hydrangeas and twigs of burning bush and maple leaves from my yard grace a willow basket, a recent acquisition from Walmart.

I love creating vignettes in trays.

They are so versatile and make playing with different home accents so much fun:

A cute pumpkin from Home Goods adds a lovely accent

The ornamental fretwork on the pumpkin reminds me so much of cut-work lace.

It pairs beautifully with the orange ceramic pumpkin and acorn squash from my garden.

The trio of beige candles bring height and color to the vignette.

The candles are adorned with maple leaf tags from Jo-Ann craft store and tied in jute twines.

I added some sprigs of burning bush for added fall color and embellishments to the candles.

 I love how I can bend the wire stems to create little curlicue :)

I love adding greenery to any vignette for color, contrast, and texture.

An array of pillows in autumnal hues bring instant color to any room decor

An antique stoneware crock pot overflowing with fern graces a corner of my great room.

Thanks for visiting me today and for all your sweet thoughts and comments. I hope you enjoyed catching glimpses of autumn in my great room:

And my heartfelt appreciation to these beautiful ladies for showcasing my Autumnal Tablescape and Fall Luminaries in their wonderful linky parties. I absolutely love joining their parties each week for a multitude of inspiring projects and share my own projects :) Stop by, if you get a chance, and I promise you won't be disappointed

Thank you, ladies! You make my heart smile:)

~Hugs, Poppy~

  30. Poppy, Your vignette is so pretty. I love your use of color to tell a story about fall. The black candle holders with the golden candles and the white and orange leaves tied by a bit of string speak volumes to me about the beauty of fall. The ceramic pumpkin,the pierced pumpkin, and the burning leaves all whisper fall through their layers of gold, orange and red. Lovely.
