Fall at the Parsonage

I finally got around to taking a few pictures of my fall decor, so here it is!  

 Front Hall/Entry

"New" Kitchen Island
(Future blog post to come on how this little beauty came into our possession)


 Dining Room

Rearranged my hutch quite a bit, since it'd been a while.  (I was getting bored with it.)  I have my grandmother's turkey platter out on display, in addition to other "fall" dishes (leaf candy dishes from Target's dollar spot, small turkey plates $1 each from Christmas Tree Shops, hand painted bread plate - a gift).  Why keep them hidden behind cabinet doors?  Use them with the decor! 

Living Room

Still not sure how much I love how this is all arranged, but it is what it is for now.  I've been meaning to put a few fall pictures from last year in the small frames, but just haven't gotten around to it... so they still have summer pictures in them!  Maybe I'll get around to it before Christmas comes!

 I'm not gonna lie... I'm loving my mantel this fall!  I finally got one of $1 garage sale find wooden windows up (didn't have to do a thing to it!).  Then, my tea-stained cheesecloth with lights (hard to see in the picture), some candle holders, black metal star and "R", mini pumpkins, and my believe sign and it's done.  Simple, clean, and relaxing.  Ahhh...  Even better in the evenings with the lights on and the candles lit...

 Front Door

Happy decorating!

  1. LOVE the island... and the mantel!

  2. Fall bathroom decor?

  3. I have to say that I'm not big on seasonal decor in my bathrooms... It's not that I'm completely anti... I just personally don't take the time to do it. If anything, I'd probably add a real/faux pumpkin to our half bath (the one that guests typically use)or maybe a simple punch of seasonal color with a hand towel in a bold fall shade. The space is small, so there's not much room to put anything but the necessities (fixtures, cleaning supplies, bathroom spray, and a couple decorative things)... maybe next year I'll have to try to do something.
