October Decorating Ideas – Inspiration is Everywhere:

Since fall decorating has become so popular, it’s easy to find inspiration when you’re out and about.  This past weekend, I traveled to Newport, Rhode Island and stopped in the Kiel James Patrick store.  Here are a couple cute displays from the store…

Yes, the store was as pretty as their Instagram feed…an explosion of New England style fall color!  Now I want to pull out all my sweaters, plaid and pumpkin decor!

October Shopping Finds:

October is a great month to work on a jigsaw puzzle in front of the fire!  We spotted some adorable fall puzzles during our Newport Shopping trip!

If you’re entertaining this October (or even November), this pumpkin tureen is such a versatile piece…

Not only is it great for serving soup or other dishes but I think it would make a great centerpiece.  You could fill it with flowers or other fall items…get creative.


Yes, I’ve shared these before, but I highly recommend these limited edition soaps for fall!
