Fall is in the Air!

Happy Thursday.

I started some Fall decorating.  We had fall like temps last week end.  Actually had to put the heat on.  This week it has warmed up some to the 70's so I am hanging onto these wonderful days.
Got my fall mantel decorated.

My new little Harvest Angel in in the wreath sitting on the pumpkin.

Some faux wheat and sunflowers.

Pumpkin on old chippy post.

Blessings runner and pumpkins.

Love to decorate for fall with these cute fabric pumpkins. 

Took my sand and old milk bottle and added some fall flowers for a centerpiece on the dining room table.

As the sunshine streams into the entry way I have my new chippy swing and spread out a few fabric pumpkins up on the bench.

I am sure this bench will change up a few times as I get more fall decor.

I guess this summer girl needs to say good bye to summer and hello fall.  Just hope fall holds on for a while.  I do love when the leaves all start to change here in the midwest.

It makes me think of Chili in the crockpot, warm homemade Apple pie and Terry watching his Chicago Bears on Sundays.  Yep fall is here.

Hope your fall decor is starting where you are too.

I am slowly starting the outside of the house.  Some of my summer flowers are still hanging on.

Have a great rest of the week.
Be sure to come back on Saturday for Spotlight.  Susan and I have two wonderful bloggers for you to get to know better.

  1. So very pretty...I love your fabric pumpkins! And I just noticed that yellow swing!! LOVE it :) I have a rusty yellow "trapeze" bar from a swing set that I am trying to think of a way to re-purpose...

  2. Such a sweet dreaming fall in your home ! your white lacy pumpkins are just perfect. Here in France fall is forgotten and we have a sonice weather that we can dream that summer is not almost gone !

  3. This is so charming, Kris...the whole post makes me smile! xo

  4. As always, your fall decor is beautiful Kris! Love the bottle of sand with the flowers, the blessings runner, and the fabric pumpkins are so pretty. We've had so much rain lately, my flower beds look more like a jungle with all the weeds. It needs attention! Enjoy your day!

  5. Kris,
    There is always a sweetness and romantic dreamy feel to your decor. Your Fall pumpkins, angels, flowers, signs convey your warm heart. Kris whenever I visit I leave feeling hugged. Philly all week has been in the mid 70's and Sunday will be 82, not so Fall like here either, but maybe - hopefully signals a mild winter!

  6. I love all of your white pumpkins and burlap mixed together. I bet it's really pretty during the Fall there. We are getting cooler temps, but our leaves are still very green. We won't get to enjoy a color change until mid to late October. Unfortunately, I now have a cold to deal with. Not sure if it's allergies from the change in season or not. Ugh!!

  7. Kris, love your touches of fall! Sweet pumpkins and angel! I'm slowly bringing out some fall decor...still hanging on to summer!

  8. Love all your fall decor although there is none at our house - mid 80's with the sand too hot to walk on barefoot!

    I moved an old bench to the side of the garage and it hit me the other day when I drove home and noticed that spot that it is perfect for a fall vignette. I guess I need to get over to the pumpkin patch.

  9. Not sure how I have missed it but the lampshade with the spoons is fantastic. I need a close up shot of that. All your fall decor looks wonderful. We are in the low 60's here and it's very chilly in the morning when I leave for school.

  10. Luvly as always Kris. I started a slow transition a few weeks ago... It will progress as the season does. Adding, editing...
    We are still clinging to summerlike temperatures here in the Sunshine state. Soon....

  11. I just love your Fall wreath, Kris!
    did you make it yourself?
    All is beautiful!

  12. The swing! I adore swings. They are one of happy things. Could I love you more? I think not. ;)

  13. Mmmm, yes, I think I am going to make some chili this weekend, Kris. Of course, it is supposed to warm back up this weekend, so I may have to rethink that. : ) Love the flowers you added to your mantel. They suit your décor perfectly.

  14. So pretty, Kris. Love your fall whites and your harvest angel is adorable!

  15. I haven't had to touch the heat but I did get the a/c fixed yesterday. I love your pretty fall decor! Everything in your house is always so cute and adorable with that warm touch of home. Your style is amazing!

  16. Hi Kris,

    I love your fall décor!!! That angel is the cutest!

  17. Every single decor you made is fabulous. Especially the pumpkins...i love them with those fabrics and laces!

  18. I love all of it -but my all time favorite is your angel - she's just so gorgeous !
    And that swing .................is incredible !
    I'm still not ready for fall - my summer baskets in the backyard still look like summer so I'm doing a lot of
    pretending LOL
    Happy Fall Kris.

  19. I love the way you've warmed up your whites with a little bit of color and lots of texture, Kris! Your chippy swing looks darling hanging in your entryway, and I adore the wire gate decorated with a wreath, too. I'm too exhausted from working long days this week to do any fall decorating, but I hope to get around to it this weekend. My one and only Heavenly Blue morning glory bloomed today in the middle of the frozen leaves! Better late than never, I guess. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  20. Hi Kris, love all your fall decorating. The angel on the mantel is precious. Love the sweater pumpkins and so inspired by them. I am creating a few myself. Love the chippy swing and your bench with treasures is wonderful. Love the gate with the wreath. Always an inspiration to visit.
    Have a great weekend.
    Hugs and Blessings

  21. I actually pulled my fall decor out of their secret hiding place yesterday. If I'm not too wiped out from shopping Saturday, I hope to start decorating on Sunday afternoon. Your decor is wonderful, I love that you can just add touches without changing everything. That is one nicety of having a beautiful neutral home! Lovely as always! Blessings, Cindy

  22. Ahhh-Kris- You beat me to it this year. I have been holding on to summer but figured I would get my Fall stuff out this week. Can you believe that summer is over and we have had weather like we have had? It was 42 here when I first got up this morning. That is AWFUL.

    Everything looks just so lovely and I love all your white Fall decorations--when most of us are throwing splashes of color around you are creating a world of warmth with textures and slightly altered hues of white. I do love that little pop of yellow from the old swing though. You did a great job! xo Diana

  23. Love your Fall decor...and adore your fabric pumpkins!! They are so pretty.

  24. I just love all of your seasonal decor...with the glorious soft white decor and then the punches of color....your mantel is enchanting!!!...Love every fall detail and I am crushing on that wreath on the iron gate!

  25. Loving your Fall decor, Kris. Those pumpkins are sweet as can be. The mantel looks wonderful! I am also amazed by your coffee station. I can't believe how many great ideas you can come up with to decorate your house in such unique ways...you inspire me every time I come over here to visit!

  26. Your Fall decorating is enchanting. Everything just sings Fall and all in lovely white and lights. I went through this post about 3 or 4 times just so I could soak it up all over again. So lovely!

  27. Mornin' Kris, I really like the wheat you have incorporated in your Fall vignettes....I would like to try that myself! I am praying we have a LONG beautiful Fall...wouldn't that be wonderful? I would enjoy that more than summer! Have a beautiful weekend~~~Blessings~~~Roxie

  28. Hi Kris, I wish you could send of your cool weather to Florida...still hot as blazes here! Your home is always beautiful and especially now decorated for Fall. Love the mantle.

  29. Kris, I love your swing! I am always hearting your images on bloglovin. xoxoxo

  30. It sure feels like fall today! Love all of your beautiful fall decor!

  31. Pretty, pretty, pretty! Love the chippiness with the daisies, wheat and pumpkins! You are so derned talented my friend! Hugs, Leena
