Be Inspired #157 Nature Inspired

Hey There Everyone, 
and Welcome to Be Inspired!

I know this week that more and more of us are getting our Fall On and adding in some Autumn colors and textures to our home. It's hard to think Fall when it's 95 degrees outside, but this week most of us are starting the cool down and all it takes is one morning in the 60's and we're ready to go grab those leaves and pumpkins! I think that I'm most drawn to "nature" in my decorating. To me, the beautiful colors and textures of the Seasons are the easiest and most simple way to decorate.

 I've been a fan of Lucy's for quite awhile now, and her mantels are always fresh and innovative. Here she shares her Fall Mantel with bits of nature showcased within a wonderful old gold gilt frame. If you haven't seen this, you'll want to head over to Craftberry Bush. This is just the first of several transformations for Fall.







And because I love a "two-fer" I also wanted to share Lucy's wonderful 
adorable!






There's just something about a good canning jar all decorated for the Season to Light up your evenings. Love these Fall Luminaries from Poppy at With A Dash of Color



Earlier this summer Kathy from A Delightsome Life shared her concept for a Farmhouse Kitchen Makeover with lots of plans and details. In this post she gave us her Farmhouse Kitchen Reveal. It turned out beautifully, Kathy!





Andrea from Town and Prairie harvested a load of adorable Baby Boo Pumpkins from her garden this year. Here she adds a little "Cinderella" charm with her Vintage Glam Pumpkins.




Vanessa from The Picket Fence
 gave a fun tutorial on her latest wreath obsession, the
White Popcorn Kernel Wreath




Here's a close-up


True inspiration can always be found, here at Sylvia's Simple Life
This post, In the "Fall of the Leaf",
 is much more than a recipe for a rustic Cauliflower and Broccoli Tart,
it's a recipe for living.



And if you just need a little fun and something a bit bizarre you have to check out
Phyllis' house guests from Around the House.
They're a scream.





I told you all I LOVE anything pumpkin, so take a peek at these
from Carol at Through My Front Porch.



Have you been by the Eleanor Brown Boutique lately?
You'll want to check out the wonderful Santos dolls, crowns, ex votos,
and all things Shabby, Vintage, and French
that are currently in the shop.
So many wonderful items for the upcoming Christmas Season!



Now, on to the party fun...

Hope you'll join in and celebrate Fall each week,




while you're partying please check out these other great Friday link parties:



xoxo,

I'm now asking for a link back to Common Ground
WITHIN YOUR POST.
 thanks a bunch!
