~autumn touches~

by - 9:58 AM

I know autumn doesn't officially start until later this month, but it's been beautifully brisk here the last few days and that has me in an autumn state-of-mind.

So, of course, once my boys went back to school, I started working on some autumn-inspired projects.  First up was this tarnished metal cake stand from our local thrift store.  All it needed was a few coats of orange spray paint, Dollar Store pumpkins and some Scrabble letters. 
This corner of my kitchen is one of my favorites.  I love playing off the white/off-white palette.  The ceramic cup is from World Market and is displaying a bunch of my French script candles, while the ceramic pumpkin was a Home Goods find.  It's filled with scented mini pumpkins.
Another old scale in the kitchen that I dressed up for autumn.
I filled some "apothecary jars" with more mini pumpkins and potpurri, and some faux cotton branches from Hobby Lobby.  I made the "jars" using glass candleholders and vases fom the Dollar Store.  I used the same technique I used when I made a redneck wine glass a few years ago: simply use some E6000 glue and glue the vase to the top of the candleholder.  Super easy!
My front porch is still a work in progress, but here's where I am so far.  I have big plans for this piece for Halloween, but I'm trying not to get ahead of myself.

How are you decorating for autumn?
