Welcome Autumn!

Today is the first day of fall, the season that I have called my favorite since childhood. 
A claim I based mainly on the fact that my birthday is in October... solid logic for a 6 year old.  I have since grown to love Autumn. The air becomes crisp, flavors more bold, and our schedule a little bit calmer.

Over time I've also come to favor a more natural nod to the season. A simple fur blanket tossed over the wicker basket in the foyer, leopard print pillows in the family room, and hues of yellow, orange, brown & rust peppered around the house in organic forms.


I am looking forward to grabbing a few neutral-toned pumpkins and potted mums to round out this years decorations and letting the glittered pumpkins & faux leave garland sit this year out.

One thing I am not willing to go without though is Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea. The tin sits out on our kitchen counter adding a pop of auburn color & easy access to the yumminess inside. 

With a cup of tea in hand, I am ready to welcome the changing season. After all Fall means longalls & brown gingham,

comfy sweaters with fluffy accessories,

and football!!!


  1. Your post has me totally excited for fall! Love the wreath on your door, the adorable dog, and the monogrammed brown gingham. And the little football players remind me of when my guys were that little. Have a great week!

  2. Love your pics! Perfect toast to Fall! And that tree? I have to try it! Perfect for a chilly day!

  3. Your wreath and entry are just fabulous!!! And I love the gingham longall. I miss those days!! The puppy fits right in with your fall decor. Best accessory ever :-)

  4. Such a pretty entrance! Oh that cute longall (and adorable little one)! :)


Thanks so much for taking a minute to share your thoughts with me! I love reading each of them. Have a great one.
