MORE Autumn decorations!

I love the Fall season so much, especially all the rich earth-tone colors. I just can't help making every part of my home a warm welcome to Autumn!

Here is my dining room chandelier...I added a bittersweet garland and then strung some glittery black cats and autumn maple leaves. The tablecloth is one I made from fabric at JoAnn's, and I added some chunky potpourri to my apothecary jar.

A closer look at the glittery cats and leaves...and a giant glittered star in the center!

Here is my table chandelier with a small acorn candle-ring and a glass bird. The final creepy touch is wonderful flickering lights I got at WalMart for 75cents each!

This wonderful vintage reproduction sap bucket with the black cat is from Seasons Of Cannon Falls. I stuffed it with bittersweet and maple leaves.

On my kitchen table...a red cake stand with a glittered pumpkin surrounded by wonderful potpourri with mini pinecones, allspice, cinnamon and cloves...yum!


The "Mother of all Apothecary Jars" stuffed with squash, leaves and pumpkins. A ceramic "Autumn" sign that I just love!


A wired tiered stand that I got at Target and painted black, and a pumpkin spice soy candle!


And my precious "Bunnies By The Bay" animals...they got moved to a new home!

I hope y'all are having a fabulous Fall weekend! It's 85 degrees here today. I baked peanut butter cookies and the house smells wonderful. Hmm...I think I'll go eat one with some sweet tea! :)



Autumn blessings,
Victoria Lynn

OH BFF! This is just a lovely post, I adore how your chandelier turned out, the cats looks really cool on it. I will have to run to Wal-Mart and get me some of those flicker lights too! (love to use bad grammer, sounds kinda southern don't ya think??) :)
The vintage inspired bucket is so sweet, and seeing your vintage pumpkin bucket makes me want to get one too. Too bad they didn't have any in Sumner this time, and last year when we saw them I didn't get one, shoot...hind sight is truly 20/20 huh? Let me know if you want those two candles, also I will try and get you those candle holders this week.

Take care and talk to you for hours soon!

Hi Victoria Lynn,
It looks so festive!! I have had so much fun decorating for fall this year since I got rid of my shabby chic. Pink and orange just don't go together very well..lol!! I was thinking about adding some bittersweet to my chandelier, might have to go get some today. Is your weather cooling off yet?

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

I really like what you did to your chandelier.

I just don't have the energy to dress up the entire house, but I enjoy looking at others.

Hi Victoria Lynn,
Love your new banner :) Isn't it fun to change them!? You do have a beautiful home and I so enjoy looking at all of your lovely treasures. I love bittersweet, but it's rather pricey here. Thanks for sharing your home.
Warmly,

Hi Victoria. Thanks for visiting today. I've been feeling so-o-o- blue. I wonder if anyone else feels blue? We are fine but I'm worried about people who seem so unconcerned about current events.

Your home looks so pretty!

Hugs,
Brook

What pretty fall decor you have! I found you thru Melissa's Fall nesting post! May I ask if the flickering bulbs were in the Halloween section at WM or in the regular light bulb section? I need some!!

This is my first visit to your blog and I love it. Your design is really sharp. I think all your fall decor is beautiful too.
85* there? I'm jealous. I just had to turn the heat on here, we are getting snow right now. Brrrr

Great autumn decor. The chandelier is really special. I usually just hand bunches of faux grapes!
