Finally Welcoming Fall

Well, it's hard for me because I really do hate to see summer go, however the crisp fall air and apple-picking, apple-crisp, pumpkin pie is hard to turn a cheek to, and especially in picturesque New England.

I've accepted it and am welcoming it into my home with open arms. Away with (some) of the shells, and in with the pumpkins and acorns!!

In looking for some inspiration, I found these amazing fall decor photos which could totally fit into a beach house:



do you love candycorn like me?


I like the white here, nice contrast

I have so many of these currently filled with shells, I like the natural acorns - and, they're free!

I love the white colors

  10. Just discovered your beautiful blog and signed up to follow you on Twitter :-)

    Fall is a tough time of the year -- it's sad because summer is over and winter is on its way, but the fall colours are so beautiful, and it's nice to get warm and cozy in front of the fireplace with a mug of hot chocolate :-)

    The urns on the porch are beautiful, and I love the glass candle holders filled with acorns. And if I was a martini drinker, I'd be all over those apple crisp ones!!
