... the autumn touches added here and there to my home. Here's what you will see if you popped by for a visit...
A friend gave me an old blackboard she had hanging around that was destined for the bin. However, I love blackboards and knew that I would find a use for it. I hadn't thought about using it as a decor item though until I saw a couple of blackboard variations used in autumn welcome displays on Pinterest - It all fell right into place from there :)
I had DH drill holes (he thought I was quite mad until he saw the final result lol), and got Miss V-L to do a bit of blackboard art for me. She copied the same message I have in the entrance hall (see further on) so it all ties in quite nicely.
I added all the final touches - berries, cones and dried teasel heads.
My mum's have been firmly installed in their regular autumn place - flanking the front door. I went for the same burnt oranges as last year - I love the colour so much. I briefly considered some dark purple ones, in fact I may go back and buy two pots of them to flank the conservatory doors.
Just inside the front door the book dresser has a few touches - these will be developed as we move further into autumn.
Here's the little printed off autumn art I was talking about at the beginning of the post with a little jar of roses and rose-hips from the garden.
A little string of acorns I knitted last year and my copy of 'Autumn Story'.
In the lounge resting on the top of my kist, I have printed off some autumn art and popped it into an inexpensive frame. The pumpkins I knitted last year draw your attention to the autumn message.
My kitchen windowsill is has it's first touches too - more to come as the season wears on. Right now I have a white pillar candle which is lit in the early evening. Another printed off autumn art message in a frame and a small glass bowl of apples off our tree.
Still to come ... Lounge and fireplace mantle, conservatory, more touches in the kitchen, the school room and our bedroom :)
Do you decorate your home for the season? Have you started adding autumn touches yet? I would love to see if you have - feel free to leave a link here on my blog or on my FB page :)
Now I'm off - we are back to school this week and lessons are about to begin! :)
