I don’t know about you…but I love peeking into people’s homes and seeing how they decorate and live…especially this time of year! I’m a fool for a pumpkin, so seeing pumpkins in people’s houses makes me smile. Here’s a little look into our pumpkin filled house this fall…
I have five of these stone jack-o-lanterns around the front door and side door. They look really pretty at night with a candle burning. We bought them several years ago at Sandstone Gardens right outside of Joplin, MO.
So, I bought this jack-o-lantern last year at Hobby Lobby and they have them again this year. He’s a happy Jack, so I really like him. And if it were acceptable, I’d leave fall leaves on my mantles all year long :).
Leaves on a mantle are just cozy :).
My “boo” sign is from Hobby Lobby and my mercury pumpkin is from Pottery Barn. I put Christmas lights inside the pumpkin so that it glows 24/7 :).
My friend Amy made us this subway art years ago. It has all of our favorite fall words on there.
Speaking of signs, my Happy Pumpkin Spice Season sign and my little battery operated pumpkin are both new this year and available at Hobby Lobby. This little corner in my kitchen makes me happy.
Hey there pumpkin!
Just a little bit of fall sprinkled around.
My most prized possessions in life are the plates that Kensington and Smith made for fall and Christmas. I just love them so much and treasure them dearly. This year, Ashby made one for fall and Christmas too, but it’s not ready yet. As soon as I get them back, I’ll post pictures. Her little hand prints are just as sweet :). That’s a two year old Smith hand print turkey and a three year old foot print scarecrow from Kensington.
Also…do you see my stack of Pottery Barn Kids’ plates? Andrea and I both collect them with quite a bit of zeal! Four new ones come out each season, and as you can see, I’ve been collecting them for several seasons now. Whenever the catalog arrives, Andrea and I immediately call each other and discuss this year’s patterns :). We’re so much alike in this department! My kiddos eat every meal off of them between now and when I put out the Christmas version. I even eat breakfast and lunch off of them! They make me happy :).
Cute little plates for kids everyone :).
My little coffee bar area. I find seasonal mugs everywhere from Pottery Barn to Home Goods. I typically buy two every time I see some and now after all of these years, I have a fun little collection.
My little spook house lights up and plays “scary” music. This is hands-down, without a doubt, most certainly my kids favorite decoration in the house :).
Last year, I bought this jar at Hobby Lobby along with the glittery pumpkins and for each season, I change out what’s inside. For Christmas, I’ll put ornaments inside, for Easter, plastic eggs…I’m always looking for new things to put inside. This summer, I had Fruit Loops inside :).
Just little touches of fall :).
Years ago, Erika babysat my big kids one night during the fall and they made these little canvases with their hand prints…I treasure it. This is in my office :).
