Fall Decor?

When I decorate for fall, all I really do is rearrange what I have, and add a few extras. If you were to come over right now, this is what you would see outside my front door. It may not be what you would consider typical fall decor, but it's my kind of fall.

If you've followed my blog for any length of time, you'll recognize that iron gate section with the roses. It used to be my header. I picked up the galvanized piece recently at one of my favorite resale shops, and it's holding one of my favorite plants, "autumn joy".

The urn next to it is one of two I found at a garage sale earlier this year.
I almost parted with them, but I'm so glad I didn't. Yes, that's a candle inside. I love candles inside and out.

This is another one of my favorite galvanized buckets. It's much heavier than what I usually see and I love the thick vertical strips.

I have a tall chest in my living room. It's great for storage.

The urn on top was a flea market purchase, and I love the figures.

My bleached mirror is leaning against the wall in back. Yes, that little glow is another candle. I picked up a bunch of these little white pumpkins at my local grocery, and sprinkled them around. You saw some in my "What I Like" post.

The rich colors in this painting remind me of fall.

It's on the other side of my desk, along with one of my wicker covered bottles. Dried roses are another favorite of mine.

Autumn is my favorite time of year. So, when it comes to fall decor, I actually have quite a few things that put me in an autumn mood. Throw in a few white pumpkins, pick a little "autumn joy", and I'm happy.

I have been growing the sedum for years now, transplanted from my mom who transplanted from her mom. I think the drought may have gotten mine this year after 8 years. Well, if it doesn't come back, I'll just start over! Lovely post as always, Rosemary,
