Autumn Eye Candy



It's cooled down finally and is feeling like FALL!

I now have 4  large bins of autumn decor items
 sitting in my living room needing to be opened!

Fall is my very favorite time of year- 
but never at the cost of wishing my life
 or summertime away!

It flies past fast enough without trying, doesn't it?









I just wanted to say hello and share a few of my favorite pics
 from the past for you (and for me) to get inspired....
and let you know I will be finally putting away summer
 and welcoming fall into our home.


I love opening my seasonal decor boxes - 
it's almost like Christmas...the joy of discovering
 things I forgot about owning....such as my sweet little
corn husk autumn harvest doll.

















I absolutely love hosting autumn tea parties -
they're not as "old fashioned" as my spring ones,
 but tea never tastes better than when
 there's a chill in the air!




























Ah the wonderful warm scents of Autumn-
cinnamon, clove, orange, mums....




And the rich colours of autumn....golds, rusts, browns....










Sunflowers are the perfect transitional flower.























As always, thank you for your visit!

  1. Hi Michele,
    I LOVE your teapot and matching teacup! How pretty they are for Autumn. The corn husk doll is really sweet too. I wish I could hold on to Summer myself. Our Falls turn cold very quickly and then the winter is here. I'm a warm weather gal. Lovely photos from the past you have shared. Thank you for joining me for Tea Time and have a splendid week.

    PS~ We filled up our bird feeder last night after the birdies went to bed and it's empty again this evening! That's how many of those little feathered friends we have. They just sit there and eat until it's all gone!

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  2. Gorgeous past Fall images at your lovely home dear Michelle. I specially love the Autumn teapot and teacup to match, such a beautiful pattern! Autumn was my fave time of year in my home town NYC and it's still is, as our weather now it's just like Fall in NY.
    Have a lovely week.

  4. I love that corn husk doll. It's just the essence of fall in the country to me.
    Fall is my very favorite time of the year, too. I love everything about it and don't want to squander a moment. We don't have a chill in the air yet, but we have a distinct fall "feeling" if you stop long enough to feel it.

  5. I decorated for fall a couple weeks ago. I don't have very many fall decorations, but I love getting out what I do have. I also count my front door as part of my decor. It's a deep, rich red, so it is just perfect for fall---and for Christmastime as well.

    Our nights are definitely saying fall, but days this week have been in the high 80's. It had cooled down to the 70's last week, but summer has made another visit this week.

    Blessings,
    Patti

  9. Lots of eye candy here, Michele! The sweets in the first photo look so tempting! And the corn husk doll stole my heart! I love fall, too, I think I may even stop my yearly "downsizing" and use all my goodies in the bin!

  14. Hi Michele: I have to say you made my heart smile to learn that you have large bins for Fall, me too! I have bins for each month. Don't tell anyone. It is like Christmas when a new month comes along. We have a lot in common. Hugs, Martha

  15. Love your fall collage. The fall teaset is always a favorite when you have it out. I have a bin myself, but it's only half emptied at the moment...maybe tomorrow I'll get to the rest. But the wreath came up and went up on Sept. 1st! Thanks for sharing your lovely fall items and linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  16. Hi Michele! I have been missing all my blogging friends and will be trying to make time to post and comment! Things are still bumpy but we are surviving!

  18. What a gorgeous Fall pattern on your teacup, Michele! I just put some Fall décor out the other night. I still need to get some stuff for outside ~ a few pumpkins and some mums. The weather has been wonderful lately!

  19. ooooh I love your first teacup with the goodies around it! Fall is one of my favorite seasons also!

  20. All your fall goodies are inspiring. I have started to put out a few things. Loved the tea cup and teapot with cones and berries.

  21. Oh Michele, I definitely hope I can come visit you some day and have tea with you! Love that teapot -- I've never seen one like it. And the corn husk doll is perfect! Isn't it nice that it's cooled down here in our region? I am absolutely loving it, and wish time would slow down. You're right, so many good scents this season too with nutmeg and cloves and pumpkin . . .

  31. Like you I have some boxes of fall decor, but I haven't even brought them downstairs yet ... but I am definitely feeling the pull of fall, wanting pumpkin and spice teas, apple tea bread, etc. It really is an enchanting season, isn't it!
