Fall Kitchen

I did a little decorating in the kitchen. While shopping online, I picked up some little salt and pepper shakers and a pumpkin trivet. I found these cute towels from Williams Sonoma. I found the soup tureens at Kohls as a part of a fall vignette plan. I bought a tray and repurposed a pumpkin sign I got last year. But it did not go as planned. So I abandoned the plan and kept it simple. I continued the dining room theme of oranges and eucalyptus picks to the kitchen. I had a couple of mercury glass pumpkins left over so I put them, eucalyptus, pumpkins, and oranges in the display cabinet in the kitchen. Nothing too exciting. I like keeping all of my counters pretty clear so I do not have to move anything out of the way when I want to cook or I bring out any small appliances from my pantry. Once I purchase a new kitchen table and chairs, I will have more to decorate in the kitchen. We have done …

If this blog serves any purpose at all, it is at least a good example of someone who tries to work with and make the best of what they have (without spending much money).

I am really excited for fall weather, pumpkin spice everything, and candy corn. Truth be told, I’ve already decorated. I haven’t put out my front porch decorations yet because I don’t want my neighbors to think I’m incapable of reading a calendar. I know the first day of fall isn’t until September 22nd but I was just so excited to decorate. For the patio last year I bought pillow covers, decorative signs, a garden flag, a pumpkin doormat, some ceramic pumpkins, and a floral arrangement. I eventually went shopping for real pumpkins and was very disappointed. Pumpkins (especially those pretty heirloom ones) are really expensive and might I remind you, real pumpkins rot. I bought two small ones and one medium size one last year, but not this year. Along with the cute pumpkin door mat, I found this …
