Finding Fall in the Kitchen

I feel like every post I need to say,
"You know how much I LOVE Fall!"
OK, so I said it again, 
but never so much as this year as I've decorated
with all the new "white" in the house and here in the kitchen.
(I repainted my kitchen and cabinets at Thanksgiving last year)

I keep this carrier on the table year round 
and just change out the flowers in the old blue mason jars for the season.


Last year I mentioned that I couldn't find 
faux hydrangeas that were Fallish,
so I just used light ones and swiped them with some "distress" ink.
worked great!


The biggest change I make is to change out my curtains.
I have a set for Spring and Summer,
and a set for Fall and Winter.
The brown floral is my favorite.






(view to the sunroom)


This silver footed tray is a "staple" too,
I just change out the flowers and accessories seasonally.

In the Fall, Smiley comes to live in here.
Gosh, you'd think I put him on a pedestal or something...







And welcome to one of my newest obsessions,
Bath and Body Works Slatkin Candles.
This season it's Salty Caramel.

Let me tell you it's unbelievable!!!
(you actually want to eat it!!)




I'm a "tweaker" and a "tucker".
This year I just tweaked my vignettes
 and tucked in some new Fall color.


This Spring an iron bird was on the white pedestal, 
now one of my Lefton chipmunks is there.



And the little arrangement under the large cloche
changes out seasonally too.



I bought this little silver creamer last year that is a candle lamp,
and just added some real bittersweet to it.





Up on the double oven, things haven't changed much either,
but I added the bittersweet and some Fall leaves
 to the large tureen of apples.






Here's our new fridge that we bought this summer.
It's an LG French Door with the freezer on the bottom, in Bisque.
LOVE it. It matches my cabinets perfectly!





And here's my flower tote again.






Just found another bread board this week at Relics for three dollars
so here it is with an old white Harker Bow and Arrow Mixing Bowl,
some old linens, and the last of my dwarf zinnias.



I buy every white ironstone pitcher I come across.
another of those small addictions  obsessions collections.





I can't wait to show you what I did today.
But I will tell you that I'm going to be sharing 
Fall Tablescapes for 
Vintage Inspiration Friday.
just sayin'....

and I'm linking with these parties this week.



     







     




Have a great week everyone!

  9. I believe this is the first time I've seen your kitchen. It's so pretty! I really love all the vintage decor mixed with white and brown. Your centerpiece with the hydrangeas is very unique. I love those marmalade jars on top of your oven area too. Lots of eye candy!

    ReplyDelete
  18. You have a beautiful kitchen. I love the box you keep on your table full of flowers. What a cute idea. Something else that stood out was the curtains. I've never thought of changing my curtains seasonally!

  21. Gosh, all your Fall changes are great, but the silver tray is my favorite. I love Slatkin candles, but haven't tried Salty Caramel yet.I just finished the Creamy Nutmeg from last year,so I'm checking out your 'flavor'. Have a great week,

  24. Deb, you are so funny. I think most of us can relate with you. Love ironstone pitchers...I even found a little pitcher I liked with the ugliest 1970's decal on it so I spray painted it white and added some fall stuff to it...no ones knows...it's tucked behind some little plates but peaking out and I love it! I love your tool box, carrier with the flowers. It looks wonderful in your 'white gorgeous kitchen'...I'm just sayin'
    Great post. Great inspiration.
    Blessings,
    Debbie

  25. Everything is just beautiful Debra! I love the toolbox being used like this.

    Thank you again for my feature= I know my house wasn't the normal neat houses you have but the ideas you and others gave have got me thinking.

    Right now our sons came home and have got us on a whole different project- it's crazy big and unexpected but gotta jump when you have free help so we are diving in! You can see it in my recent post if you would like.

    bee blessed

    Your kirchen looks great decorated for Fall!
    Love all the great touches you have added.

  28. Thanks, Debra! Love your new fall look, and the curtains are a good idea. I got some inspiration because, like you, I do a lot with white, which doesn't seem very fall-ish. I am also challenged by being a Hadley Pottery fanatic, which adds a lot of BLUE to the mix (www.hadleypottery.com), which definitely doesn't feel Fall, but your china cabinet looks like it has a fair amount of blue in it too, and it blends quite well with the browns and oranges you surrounded it with. Thanks!

  29. I don't remember seeing the kitchen before and I was completely taken with it! I loved the tole trays along the counters..and I actually love that you have stuff on your counters!! Wondering where your fridge is though? Analyzing layouts as I am doing a mini remodel. I love the little creamer lamp too...really nice kitchen!

    Ohhh my goodness...your kitchen and dining area looks sooo beautiful all dressed up for autumn! I really do love your old wooden tool box full of autumn hydrangeas...sooo pretty, my friend! Another one of my favorite vignettes is up on your refrigerator. Love the big white ironstone bowl full of green apples and the grapevine wreath and autumn leaves! That is gorgeous!

    Warmest autumn wishes,

  68. hi Debra, I love all the Fall touches you added to your kitchen. Its so warm and inviting. You have so many pretties I'll have to go scroll through again. I love the vignette on top of the ovens, and I just love the all white. Great pot rack too. The dried hydrangeas in the flower tote look amazing. I like how you use your silver tray, always there and decorate for the seasons. I love, love, love the salty caramel candle. Everyone should have one. If you like it you got to try salty caramels from Trader Joe's. Happy Fall
