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.


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


I placed my velvet pumpkins on the sideboard.


Another decoration I absolutely love….

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


Adding miniature pumpkins to a Dollar Tree vase……


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


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


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.


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!



Dollar Tree Vignette!!

Dollar Tree Vignette!!

I’ve seen some of the fascinating creations made from items purchased from the Dollar Store all over blog land and Pinterest!

I’m amazed at the creativity and ideas that these people come up with!!

When I go to the dollar store, my creativity seems to stay in the car! :(

But, when I learned that Debbie of Debbiedoos and Shannon of Fox Hollow Cottage were hosting an Everything Dollar Tree link party……

 I WAS CHALLENGED!!!Continue reading
