Just a little “boo”!

Just a little “boo”!

Just a few added touches for “All Hallows Eve” at the Manor this year…….

I left my mantel “as is”.  I think it’s dark and creepy enough!

IMG_8668

I just added a few things to the area around the hearth.

IMG_8669 IMG_8674IMG_8665

Remember my Doctor Bag Vignette?

IMG_8629

I added a ceramic crow and some orange mercury glass apples……

IMG_8632

….and opened my Edgar Allen Poe book up to The Raven.  Another spider is perfect!!

IMG_8636

I found this cute little lamp at Home Goods……perfect little light!

IMG_8639

I added Halloween straws in a glass vase (all found at Dollar Tree) for a subtle touch.

And the top of the fridge holds a couple of favorite pumpkin lamps!

I hope y’all have a wonderfully safe

Happy Halloween!

Fall Around the Manor

Fall Around the Manor

I absolutely love this time of year………

……it’s a slow change in temperatures for us in South Texas but occasionally, we have a humid free day that let’s us know….

……..change is coming!!

😉

I thought I would share the fall touches around the Manor……..

…….keeping things simpler this year, at least for me!

I hope you enjoy!

I tried my first attempt at adding a tray to my round coffee table.  I added an antique orange mercury glass candlestick with a battery operated candle on top (love those….can never have enough!) along with my glass pumpkin.

IMG_8621

I tried to bring in more texture by adding some orbs covered in bark along with some green beaded garland for “fallish” color.

IMG_8626

I placed my velvet pumpkins on the sideboard.

IMG_8625

Another decoration I absolutely love….
IMG_8623

Just adding some fall potpourri and a burlap flower to my bowl……

IMG_8646

….plays against the flicker of the lantern taking my church pew into Fall!

IMG_8647

A simple ceramic pumpkin in a beautiful chartreuse green…..

IMG_8650

…..says “fall” when visitors arrive!  Remember, sometimes less is more!

IMG_8648

I added a faux white pumpkin to my olive basket….

IMG_8659

…..with, of course, faux olive branches, and a little burlap!

IMG_8662

The fall mantle is very simple and much like last years.

IMG_8668

The kitchen/computer area was fun to decorate.  I picked up the framed images of fall at the thrift shop I volunteer at!

IMG_8717

My trio of pumpkins were surrounded by orange pip berries (also purchased at the thrift shop)!

IMG_8717

Adding more fall picks and a ceramic pumpkin from Bath and Body Works …..

IMG_8700

…..along with a cream sunflower from the Dollar Tree, completes the look!

More small touches in the kitchen bring us to a close…….

IMG_8707

Adding miniature pumpkins to a Dollar Tree vase……

IMG_8708

along with other added fall pieces and candles on my tiered serving piece is just enough this year!

IMG_8711

Another cream sunflower and ceramic pumpkin from Dollar Tree are perfect in the coffee corner!

IMG_8714

I placed a faux mum with some faux pumpkins and gourds along with wooden accessories and a pumpkin towel found on clearance last year at Pottery Barn to my salad bowl and stand!

See the tiny crystal spider attached to the mum?  Yes, I’ve added those that I used last year.

IMG_8716

That post is next!

I hope y’all are enjoying this season as much as I am.  It is the start of a magical time in my opinion!!!

Happy Fall Y’all!
