More Fall Around Here


The bookcase in our foyer got a quick change to take it into fall. Here's what it looked like this summer:

Here it is now for fall:

I swapped out the sun/floral print in the frame for this bird image from an old Cavallini calendar (similar to this). My vintage glass fishing float got replaced with dried gourd, one of my #13 blue Ball mason jars, and two old aqua apothecary bottles that I recently found at a flea market in our supermarket's parking lot:)

I kept my old Hardy Boys books (helps tie in to the vintage book thing going on on the mantel) and just added a mini white pumpkin to the shelf with the white pitchers/bottles. Easy and quick, gotta get this stuff done during nap time:)

I always put mini pumpkins in the transom window above our front door, but they look better this year now that the door's black. Yay!

The ledge shelves above the couch in our family room got a quick redo for fall too.

Love this photo of Maura's feet taken during her photo session with Sarah of Afterglow Photos when she was 10 weeks old.

For some reason this old wooden vise (from the early 1900s) that I got during my first trip to Brimfield in 2009 makes me think of fall and harvesting, even though it was only used to hold pieces of wood together.

I bring out this wheat bundle every year. This time I just changed the color ribbon on it to green to tie in more with the color scheme of the vignette. I bought like 6 of these wood chunky candlesticks at our neighborhood yard sale this year...not sure if I'm eventually going to paint them or not, for fall the wood is working well.

And...that's all I got:) Stay tuned next week for the inspiration for the next Mood Board Monday!


  1. Your house looks awesome. Love the Fall Decor and all your super cool vintage books.

  2. Love what a few little tweaks can do! You have lots of great pieces to work with and the fall look is perfect!

    Can't wait to see what is cookin' for Mood Board Monday!!!


  3. Sarah, all of your touches are so great for fall! I LOVE the fall bookcase look - and just a matter of swapping a few things out - how great! (naptime or after bedtime did accessorizing go down? :)
    That piece you picked up at Brimfield reminds me of harvest too - very cool. Can't wait for the next Mood Board Monday inspiration to be revealed!!

  4. Looking great. That vintage wood vise is very cool!

  5. Your fall touches are so interesting ...I love Ball mason jars and hope to buy at least one soon. The dried gourd is a magnificent piece and Hardy Boys was one of my favorite reads growing up (along with Nancy Drew) and I have my kids reading them now.

  6. I love your fall updates, especially the addition of the more natural elements.
