I so enjoy visiting blogs and seeing the interesting and creative touches you all add to your homes, in the fall of the year.
The colors, textures, lights, and smells add a cozy and warm feeling to the season.
Last evening I captured a few of the fall accents I added to our home, simple though they may be.
This old lantern I hung by the entranceway at the front porch. I added some branches with orange berries, some fall leaves and a pillar battery operated candle with a timer.
I like the warmth that it exudes in welcoming family and friends.
I added a pot of yellow mums in the old clay pot, and a fall colored ribbon, on the front porch.
More branches of berries and fall leaves were added to the glass apothocary punch server, on the table at the bottom of the living room stairs.
I love to core and bake apples at this time of the year. I don't use a recipe, I just mix brown sugar, cinnamon, chopped walnuts and a few little pieces of butter, and stuff it into the cored apple. I cover with foil, and.bake in the oven for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Our home smells wonderful and the apples taste so good, especially when served with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Our kitchen table centerpiece.
The pumpkin faced ghord made into a lantern, returns to sit on my
island, offering his happy smile to all who enter our kitchen.
Just a few of the festive sights and smells I added to our home, in this my favorite time of the year.
Hoping you have some moments to take in the fall beauty this weekend.
