Feels Like Fall

The last few days have been cool in the morning with highs only getting up into the 80's.  It has been so nice after such a hot summer.  It has also gotten me in the mood to get out my Fall decorations.  I was going through pictures I had taken of my Fall decor in previous years and I have to say most of the photos are not that good.  Blogging has really improved my photo taking abilities, even though I still have lots of room for improvement.  Anyway, I wanted to share a couple of the photos with you.  As soon as I get my decorations up I will post them but until then here is just a little inspiration.

Sorry about the glare on this photo but I loved this arrangement so much I wanted to share.  The big pumpkin platter is one of my favorite things to set out at Fall. This picture was taken before my living room redo when I still had green walls.

This picture is from last year (sorry it's a bit grainy).  There is that orange pumpkin platter again.  Not sure where I will put it this year.

I received quit a few questions on my last post about my living room redo so I wanted to answer them.

No, I did not make the slip covers on my two wing back chairs.  I do sew but that project just seemed to daunting to take on so I took one of my chairs into an reupholster and she made the slip covers for me.

I was also asked how long it took to redo.  Well, that question is a little hard to answer.  I knew I wanted to go lighter for a couple of years and added white accents around the room as I found them at garage sales or antique malls.  Once I picked out the paint color and ordered a new sofa (from JcPenney) it only took a weekend to paint.

The wall paint color is Ralph Lauren Canvas Natural and the White on the built ins and the fireplace is Valspar Dove White. 

I want to thank all of you for the wonderful comments you left and thank you for stopping by for a visit.  I have such great bloggy friends.
