A Little Touch of Fall

I love the colors of autumn because they seem to fit with my color decor.  My home has a lot of red and gold tones.   I’ll show you……

Remember the $1.00 mantel in our family room……


Well I went to one of our local thrift stores and I  believe I must have bought every brass candle stick they had there.  I paid a whopping $4.45 for all of them.

I sprayed painted them and they now look like this……..


An evening glow.  I love to light them at night while we’re watching TV. 


Our kitchen table…….

The pitcher just recently was purchased at an auction for $2.00.  I love the color! 


I had to fill the candy tray at least three times in the last two weeks.  Somebody keeps eating it all up!

Now onto the dining room………025

and this……..


The table at the front door entry.   A glass pitcher filled with pinecones, acorns and  twigs with little orange berries on it. 


The inside of the front door. 


An antique table behind the sofa has a white pitcher filled with maple leaves. 


A little touch of fall in my office on my desk below.033

And last but not least, not only do you see a little bit of fall on the inside of my home but you can also smell it.  First thing in the morning, I fill my little simmering potpourri pot with Pumpkin Spice Latte…need I say more………It smells yummy!


Hope you enjoyed your tour of  a little touch of fall in  my home.



Today I’m linking this post to Kimba at A Soft Place to Land for Do It Yourself Day and Kimm at Reinvented for Trash to Treasure .


  1. What a beautiful and welcoming tour!
    Your home is so cozy!

  2. Loved taking a peek inside your looks beautiful and ready for fall...I'm still trying to get my fall decorations will probably be Christmas before that happens :)

  3. Beautiful--you gave me a lot of easy ideas. And I'm all about easy!

  4. Your fall decor is lovely! What kind of paint did you use on all those candle sticks? They look fantastic on your mantel.

  5. Yup looks like you are all ready to enjoy fall! I wish I was there - still am trying to get the house together after we got all the furniture unloaded from our other house- It's coming together though!

    Everything looks so very lovely!


  6. Gail,
    Your fall decorations look so beautiful. I love the black candlesticks. What a great deal! I'm so jealous. My fall decor is a little lacking this year. But I do have my favorite fall candle to make the house smell delicious.
    Blessings to you, friend,

  7. Everything looks so festive and pretty for Fall in your home. Your candle holders look great. Don't you love spray paint?

  8. Don't you just love spray paint? I used it on some thrifted candlesticks, as well. I am enamored with an oil rubbed bronze finish these days! Your home looks very festive with fall color. I like your dining room tablescape. Now.... if someone could just stay out of the candy!

  12. Thank you for inviting me on the fall tour of your beautiful, cozy home. I love the family room, from the pretty drapes to the candlelit mantle.

  13. wow, it all looks so great. I love it all.The painted candle holders look great! Thanks for sharing.

  14. Very pretty! You did a great job of decorating. Really like what you did with the candle holders - gotta love black spray paint.

  15. Thank you for sharing. The photos are lovely and the mantel is inspirational. Now to find time to make one.

  16. Love your colors, and your decorating ideas are great. I love the image with the candles lite, so pretty. . .Thanks for sharing!

  17. I'm having an internal debate about spray painting a gold mirror black. I want to, but my mom and sister-in-law say absolutely not to do it. Seeing how beautiful your painted items are, I'm tempted just to do it!!!

  18. Gail (love your name):

    Great fall decor. Your home is lovely! The shelf with the lit candles is just gorgeous.


  19. I love looking at Fall decor. Yours is beautiful, and very cozy looking.

  20. Wow I love your home...and a LOVE note!! Lucky duck! :)

  21. Oh I love your pictures! Your home feels so warm and cozy. I just spray painted some nasty old brass standing lamps with Oil Rubbed Bronze and they turned out fabulous. Is there anything spray paint can't do???!!!

  22. Very elegant! I love what you did with the candle holders.

  23. where did you get those acorns? I want some so bad!!! Every bit of your decorating is gorgeous!!! Have a blessed day!

  24. Oh my goodness... I never decorate for fall but you have me second guessing that decision! I'm in love with that clock/shelf vignette!

    So warm and cozy everything is. You've really built yourself a lovely home. :)


  25. I love the table setting, it is so beautiful and I absolutely love the way the leaves around those big candles on the center of the table, so dramatic. The mantle is soooo pretty...Thanks for sharing, I am a new follower....come for a visit...

  26. Oooh, I love your fall decor! Especially the painted candlesticks. Thanks for linking up to Trash to Treasure Tuesday!

  27. Very, very pretty...every inch of it!

  28. Beautiful autumn touches. Love all of your candlesticks. What a great way to add ambiance and for such a minimal price. Your colors are beautiful.

  29. Absolutely beautiful. I'm so jealous!! I can't seem to get the computer or the papers that come home from school off my table for more than 30 minutes at a time. Usually my decorations just get lost in the mix. lol

  30. I love Fall decor! Yours is gorgeous! I really enjoyed looking around your blog! What great ideas!!
