Autumn Colors

With the cooler weather approaching,

 I have been in the mood for some richer colors in my home.

So, the other day, when I rearranged my Living Room,

I also played around a bit with this table.
I don’t have a before picture – (poor planning!)
But I changed things around and added a few things.

I left my shell picture on the wall

but added a little bit of fall to the table.

I don’t usually go crazy with the seasonal decor.

Just a few changes here and there.

Some richer colors down below.

Someone gave me this great little ceramic pumpkin years ago.

I bought this frame at Pier One last spring.

Then I put a bird print inside

 like I had seen on a display at Pottery Barn.

To make it, I found a small bird calendar on sale last January.

and I blew up the image I wanted on the photocopier.

Wow, what a crafter I am – LOL!

So there you have my little corner of autumn colors.

Have you started adding richer colors

or are you still hanging on to the summer ones?

    Love the red urn and that bird print you framed looks terrific. I have not begun autumn decorating yet, but did go buy a bunch of stuff today to start soon.

    Hi Shelley, I love your seasonal changes. It's so nice to change things up a bit. I tend to go overboard in the fall since it's my favorite season. The red vase and bird cage look perfect on the bottom shelf of your table. And yes, it's a bit too cold for this time of year in New Jersey. I'm not quite ready for it yet. Have a nice weekend!Marianne 🙂

    I just love your fall changes! That red urn is so gorgeous and I almost picked up the same bird cage last time I was at Tuesday Morning (did you find yours there). 🙂 May just have to go back and get it now that I see how fantastic yours looks! Thank you so much for coming over and sharing this with us at Inspiration Friday this week!Vanessa
