Fall Sprucing


Posted by Rebecca, October 30th, 2013

Long time, no blog? ๐Ÿ™‚

I figured I’d jump back on the blogging wagon with some simple seasonal decorating. I’m not really one to go big for most holidays except for Christmas, but I love a little Fall decor. We host Thanksgiving each year, so I keep things fall neutral to get a good 2 month stretch out of everything.


First up, the porch. My favorite fall wreath got ruined when our basement flooded during Hurricane Irene in 2011. I went 2 years without a replacement wreath until I spotted this one on clearance at Target about 2 weeks ago.


I added our same old doormat from Target about 3 years ago, some mums and 4 pumpkins, 2 of which Easton painted himself. Can you frame a pumpkin?



You may have noticed that we also changed out our (off center) porch light for this one from amazon.


We still need to put a clear bulb in there. We ordered another for the other porch light, but the glass was broken so we’re awaiting a replacement.

For the entryway table, I just added my usual twine pumpkins from Crate & Barrel several years ago. I mixed in some white gourds. Placement is based solely on the length of a 17 month old’s arms.


I also added some gourds to the powder room, along with some orange towels and a candle. Just call me Martha Stewart over here.



I probably could have folded those towels better. Oops.

Apparently, I lost steam once I got to the inside of the house since the family room got one lone update…


Okay, it got two updates, there’s a pillow on the other side of the couch.

Really, we’ve spent the past several months a) living it up for the summer b) working on that outdoor kitchen and c) decluttering the house and minimizing. I’ve been trying to focus on one thing at a time, which may not be a fun and bloggable thing, but that’s life.

But! The outdoor kitchen was grouted today. Once it’s all haze free and full of appliances, I will be sure to post pictures.

Happy Halloween everyone!

      Great list – I’d include a 12″ non-stick skillet. As wesns-ealoled a cast-iron skillet can be, I never find them non-stick enough to fry and egg in one. I’d throw in some tongs, a few wooden spoons, a whisk, and a towel too.If you’re going to bake – you’ll need a few other things too.

  10. But the postmodern school never dominated modern It’s a straw man from the "empirical side" I don’t see any conflict between empiricism and philosophy to take a cheap jab at everything Especially the younger generation of scientists certainly lacks a little bit in the philosophy of science department so that sadly Lawrence Krauss like "vulgar materialism" has gained a sad amount of

  11. I love your decor ideas! The pumpkins are the best way to accent the fact that fall has come. Here in Australia we have spring now, and the theme is more summer-oriented. It’s weird to be on the other side while most of the planet is getting ready for winter.
