Fall Home Inspiration

 I'm so very happy that fall has arrived!  I made my first bowl of creamy pumpkin-spiced oatmeal, the leaves are changing and I pulled my jacket back out of the closet.
  
We've been able to enjoy being outdoors again without getting bit by mosquitoes.  My favorite part about the weather change is sitting outside in the morning with a cup of coffee.  

 Sometimes I listen to music and sometimes I just sit and enjoy the birds chirping or the squirrels jumping from one tree to another.

 My son had a short fall break from school.  I enjoyed having him home.  As he gets older (15) I really appreciate having one-on-one time with him. 

 We enjoyed a few fun days of snacks outside in the backyard.

 And since I'm always moving things around, I thought I'd share a few fall touches from around the house.

 I don't have the space to store seasonal decor.  I prefer to decorate with natural items that can be thrown away (once they rot) or eaten!

 Fresh flowers and pumpkins keep my entry shelf looking fresh, but simple.

 I added a touch of fall to my kitchen counter with a wooden bowl filled with seasonal fruit and vegetables.

I'm a sucker for new tea towels.  Each season I love to switch out the towels I display.  

The hydrangeas in my yard are displaying their beautiful fall colors.  So naturally I cut a few to display inside.

 If I had to pick a favorite tree, my miniature Ginkgo Biloba would be it!  The leaves turn a beautiful shade of yellow in the fall.

Layering in a couple extra blankets is nice way to make your home feel cozy for fall.  Rather than purchasing seasonal themed decor, I enjoy adding texture and greenery to what I already have.

Decorating for each season doesn't have to be expensive.  Pretty soon we'll be preparing our homes for the holidays.  I hope you'll consider a few of my ideas for a fresh new look!
