Please Help Me I'm Falling

I'm still adding more Fall touches 
thru the house.
 This is the tray I use for the fall vignette at 
the end of the kitchen bar counter. The
 apothecary jar is filled with colorful gourds.
I'm using grapevine napkin rings around the 
base of the candles. A cinnamon scented 
jar candle has a scarecrow topper. 
Of course there's a jumbo pinecone too.
I found a new (on sale last season) rug 
with all the fall colors for the floor by the sink. 
 A scarecrow and framed scarecrow print
 sit on the entry half wall.
 The top of the pie safe has a fall leaf garland 
and two fall leaf decoupaged plates on the
plate stands replacing the blue and white
plates and Staffordshire dogs. A silk fall
 leaves wreath hangs on the front. The stack 
of Longaberger baskets are trimmed with
 fall fabric garters and topped with a pumpkin.
 A few sprigs of fall leaves are tucked in with
 the twigs in the silver champagne bucket.
One of my afghans that has fall colors is 
tossed in a basket along with a straw 
pumpkin to add color in the living room. 



  1. Everything looks wonderful, Rita! Fall as certainly arrived at your lovely home.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. I love Fall so much! I am still adding Fall too, as I FIND my stuff:):) Our move was very organized, til we had the POD delivered. 2 friends came to help and boxes just got PUT in the basement, and not in the areas where they were marked to go. I love your baskets and candles and the throw is so pretty. XO, Pinky

  3. Great job! Love the basket- it looks like a Longaberger basket? The afghan in the basket with the pumpkin is cute (my cats would love to snuggle on it!).

  4. I really like all your fall decor. The baskets are my favorite.

  5. Hi Rita, I follow your blog and love all that you do. We have so much of the same tastes and likes. I started blogging Jan. 2012 and am still new to a lot of things. This is my favorite "past time" and I learn so much. Keep going girl. Happy Fall!

  6. Your home looks so festive and colorful! Hope you are enjoying autumn!

  7. Your home is so lovely in it's autumn finery! I love the basket with the large apothecary jar and other fall bits and pieces. I love seeing your flair for each season.

  8. Oh, Rita, it's always so fun to visit here. I was afraid you'd fallen and couldn't get up. Good thing so many of us look in on you!

  9. Love those rich, warm colours. Beautifully placed elegant setting!
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  10. It's ALL delightful, but especially your pie safe :o)
