My favourite time of year officially arrives tonight but I've already started added Autumn touches to my home. I'm trying to keep things soft and natural. I did add a few touches of orange but somehow they seemed overdone so I removed them. They might return as the season progresses - especially if I manage to find some bittersweet!
I covered old books with Kraft paper to give them a uniform look. I bought several baby boo pumpkins from the grocery store and scattered them about. An ironstone soap dish is filled with faux acorns (the squirrels beat me to the real ones!) and I added dried hydrangeas from my garden to a wooden box.
Later in the week I'll share my latest find. It looks like a small version of a baguette dough bowl - perfect for baby boos and maybe a candle or two!
Autumn - the year's last, loveliest smile.
