Today I thought I would share one of the ways that I get ready for Fall. One of the very first things that I do to get that inspiration for Fall is to change out my flower arrangements for the upcoming season. There are so many little hints in nature here in the Midwest that prepare us for the arrival of Autumn. The air feels and smells different with the cooler temperatures, the light seems to change and take on a "slant" and a golden hue, and the tops of the trees now have a change in color.
I use this old wicker flower basket in my entry hall year round. This time of year I've added some fall leaves and berry stems to the dried hydrangeas that were there in August. I like to make a subtle transition in the seasons. Adding a little each day; changing one thing, then another.
In my Dining Room, I'm really enjoying seeing how "Fall" brightens up my French iron basket. I painted and wallpapered my Dining Room earlier in the summer. The cream and damask paper really reflect the warm colors of the fall leaves and flowers.
Bringing out the Brown Transferware is another sign that Fall is on it's way.
On the new "white" console table further into the entry that just had it's metamorphosis,
the iron urn now holds golden Aspen leaves.
And the front door's wreath is now a colorful blend of black eyed susans and sunflowers.
Bringing nature indoors with my decor in arrangements is just the start of the Fall Nesting Season for me. Sometimes when the weather is still warm (OK...hot!) we can get in the mood by just seeing what others are up to. We still have warm weather here, but usually in about 2 weeks we can start to think about sweaters and jeans again, yay!!
Please visit the Fall Nesting Party at the Inspired Room
for much more inspiration for Fall!
And I'm joining in at A Stroll Through Life with Marty for

So much more to come.
Have a great week everyone,
