fall decor in a new house

Otherwise known as shopping within your own home. Which is exactly what it felt like. I laid out all my fall items and just chose a piece and placed it here or there and then maybe I moved it a few times... and after all that I would repeat the process again until there was nothing left. It may only be the second of September but that doesn't stop me. When has it ever? The second of September kicks off the best time of the year. Remember, remember the second of September. Or something like that. 

The wreath that originally called my mantle home had to find a new home since my mantle is decked out with a fine large mirror in this house. Our dining room table's last days are numbered. We shall be handing off the Olsen Table Torch to another set of Olsens whilst we receive another family treasure. I love that owl. He is the cutest. I have  about a hundred different chalkboard walls in mind and I can't wait to change them, weekly maybe? I was actually crafty if you can call it that when just scissors and paper are involved... The hand-print wreath and those paper pumpkins in the playroom were the result of that. I haven't decorated the outside of my house yet (meaning a wreath and some pumpkins) because I prefer my neighbors not to be privy to my particular breed of crazy. And I love my new lantern purchased with some birthday money. The end.

Last year's fall decor here.

  1. I have been waiting for this post : ) my favorite: above the mantle! Love the colors!

  2. I love it. ALL OF IT. I'm still trying to pretend summer isn't ending. I'm so torn, parts of me wants it to be fall, and other parts? Well..I can't stop thinking about the long cold months that follow fall. I try my best to "shop my home" OR stuff I already have.. but typically I SIMPLY cannot help taking a trip to Pier 1 or Home Goods in search of something "new".. I've been searching for one of those large lanterns FOREVER with no luck. I think I might make it my personal mission to find one this season!

  3. Totally loving the house! The mantel is my fav, it might be the mirror though...too good that one! And please don't be disappointed in me if I don't get fall decor out till Christmas. HA! ;)

  4. This is splendid. You definitely had an eye for decorating. I heart the owl. Lots. :)

  5. Yes!! I love it all! I like your type of crazy. Fits in well with mine. The hand print wreath...so cute. Never thought of that, even though I've seen it for Christmas. Fall hand wreath! I'm stealing that.

  6. Lanterns, leaves and wreaths oh my! :) you know I love your decor
