Putting away the seashells....

and thinking more of Fall....
Although it is not oranges and yellows, I love this look for Fall.  Everything just shopped around my home. 

The beautiful runner was a gift last year from my friend Melody.  I just love the browns and blacks and golds together.
So, I guess officially, Shelia, I have Fallen!!

I also had to play a bit with some creating....saw the idea on Pinterest...this is my version...

Hung this by my husband's side of the bathroom sink.  Do you think he will notice??

It looks like you have set the tone for fall, even if it's not all brown and orange!! It looks festive and not summery, which I am sure you're happy about!! ;-D

I love the sign you made...I'd love to make something like it but I would get in big trouble if I messed with the scrabble game!!


Karen said...

I think he will!
Aren't you just the ambitious one. Why don't you come stay with me next week and while I work you can put my house back together after they install all the new flooring and carpet!
You have to admit - that sounds fun yes?
But - If I ever do this again - JUST SHOOT ME!!!!

Vee said...

Yes, I think he will notice. It's wonderful. I like your fall sense, too.

I love that you shopped your own home! I do that too. I don't seem to remember from one season to the next what I have. I like how you put that basket under the dome. And of course I love the Home tealight holders....cuz I have them too! Thanks for sharing!

Is it already time to put away the seashells?! No! Where did the time go?! Your decorations are beautiful though.

June said...

Oh yeah...he'll notice! That is so sweet Ceekay.
I love the way you decorate for Fall. I am such a slug when it comes to decorating for the seasons. It doesn't happen around here except for Christmas. Blogland has me rethinking my laziness though! lol!

Hi Ceekay,
Did he notice? I bet he did and said, I love you too!! Your creation is awesome.

I adore your Fall color theme. It is perfect and I love the combination together. I think one of my brown and creme pitchers is very similar to yours.

That apple pitcher you saw like your grandma's cookie jar is pretty old. I have had it forever from back when I used to decorate my kitchen in all apples.

Have a great weekend.

Great vignettes Ceekay!
And I like that you shopped the house, it's the only shopping I've been doing lately.
Hope it's cooling down a bit out there!
Happy Weekend,

Ceekay, this is just so lovely! I just love the colors of Fall. I certainly hope your hubby notices that sweet framed art! Have a great weekend!

I love love love your browns and golds. I am not an orange person, so I have very little of it thru fall. I do love the golds, reds and whites.
You did a beautiful job on this.
I need to get busy on my fallish things...I don't decorate much for anything other than Christmas but I have a few things for fall. It was 90 degrees here today so summer is still on our minds. :)

Adrienne said...

I'm trying to figure out how to include some of my seashells and other things of the sea in my fall decor. We've been going to the coast often and I think I've left part of my heart there! Thinking if I have some of it in my decor it will help the strong wish to move there! Maybe!

Vicki said...

I saw this on Pinterest too. Came out great. Love your Fall displays. I love the browns and golds too.
