Are You Ready For FAll

  I know so many of you are anticipating Fall and starting to decorate for the season, so I thought I would show you some of the pretty vignettes I found in Christi Carter's Art of Accessorizing book.

 Love this vignette.  Gourds, pods and candles just always say fall to me.


 Many of you have a sun porch and this looks so inviting and cozy.  The rustic baskets and the pinecones are all that's needed to create a fall feeling.


 I am crazy about the color orange and this room is just the perfect color.  How lovely is this!!!


 With just the addition of the umbrellas, this suddenly looks like fall.


 Of course nuts and apples are always perfect.  So simple and so pretty.

I am more than ready and hope Fall gets here in a hurry.  How about you?

  1. GM Marty, I have been looking at Fall images, but I am so NOT ready for Fall, Our summer has been like Spring weather, so unusual for our area and I must say I am totally enjoying it. Maybe when Sept gets here I will be ready! I do love the direction you are going in, so warm and cozy for Fall. When football season starts officially the candles come out and then I am ready.xo Kathysue

  2. I can't wait! Love it when the air has a crispiness to it and all the fall festivals start. My favorite time of year!

  3. So pretty! It's my favorite season! Today is rainy and cool so it feels kind of like fall. I'm not ready for summer to be over but I'm having a fall moment today.

  4. Marty, Living in the South, we have those long hot Summers and even though we have another month or so to go, I'm looking forward to Fall and enjoy looking at books and photos for inspiration. Thanks for sharing the book.

  13. Marty,
    I adore the warm hues and scents of Fall (Autumn)! Our whole menu changes with the seasons On Crooked Creek, as well as the decor, I am so ready for fried apples with waffles for weekend breakfast. I just crave HOT food this time of year! Living on the Prairie, we experience four seasons...personally, I enjoy three of those four! I have a HUGE entertaining schedule this Fall...so, like many I'm excited for Fall to arrive!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  14. I am definitely ready for the cooler temps and lower humidity of fall. This has been one very hot, sticky and dry summer.

  15. Am I the only person who feels like it's too early for fall? Maybe it's because I stayed indoors all summer because it was too hot, but it feels like it should only be about the second week of July. Hard to believe it's mid August already.

    I love the cooler weather and the changing of the colors, but I'm not looking foward to all the trees losing their leaves. Good think you are planning ahead, because I'll need some decorating tips!

  16. I love fall but, that means winter is on it's way also. I love the natural things fall offers. Pumpkins,guards,bittersweet, Indian corn and colored leaves right off the trees. Thanks for the ideas. Richard at My Old Historic House,

  18. I love fall. My favorite color - orange, like you - plays such a big part in decorating. That book looks great.

  19. Fall is one of my favorite times for decorating. I love the rustic colors of orange, red, and yellow. Although, a pop of turquoise is always a nice surprise. Can't believe that it is just around the corner.

  20. Last year, after what seemed like a never ending winter, it felt as though fall came too soon. This year, when temps hit the 80's in mid June, it seems like summer will never end. I put up my fall decor last week. I'm so over summer!

  21. I am TRYING, trying to not rush the season even though Fall is my favorite season! I adore the COLORS, the crisp air, the clothes and of course DECORATING my house for Fall!!!! And, of course, the different food for fall especially SOUPS!!!!!!!! I DO have the itch but am trying not to scratch it:):):) These images are wonderful though so thank you for the inspiration!!!! XO, Pinky

  22. I could live in eternal Fall weather. My home is decorated in Fall colors so I feel like I am "in style" during that time of year. I am resisting the urge to pull out my Fall bins already. Maybe I will make it through the middle of September. LOL I will have to check out the book you referred to. One more thing I am looking forward to this Fall? Going to visit Kathysue in Cali and finally meeting Jeanette too. woot woot :)

  23. It's been fall like here the last couple of days, warm through the day and crisp cool nights. I'm loving it. I've already transformed the shop with fall decor, now ready to start up here.. hugs ~lynne~

  24. I really love the sun porch. All the photos where great inspiration. I am ready for some cooler weather, but here in the South we have a ways to go.

  25. Even though its still close to 90 degrees, I was looking at my fall containers out in the storage building. Love the samples you posted... Hurry, Fall, Hurry..

  26. Yes fall can not get her soon enough! I love the orange room with the blue and white and the apples and glass. Jennifer

  27. Oh Marty... I am so ready for Fall....we are burning up here in Texas and we could use Fall tomorrow! I'm very fond of Fall colors and of course I love all the decorating that goes along with it. Glad to see this post.

  28. Definitely ready for fall and I hope it lasts more than a couple of weeks -- you never can tell in Oklahoma! Sometimes it seems like we go directly from summer to winter. We'll need to be a little more creative with our autumn decorating, too. The heat has really done a number on many of the trees. In some places, it almost looks like fall already, but if you look closely you'll see that the leaves are dead instead of bronze. Cooler weather will certainly provide us with some inspiration!

  32. I love fall, Marty. Your pictures make me yearn for the crisp fall days and for the time when I can start putting out the fall decorations. Love Pumpkins and acorns, and apples and gourds and on and on. My grandson plays High School football this year. That is what fall is about. Can't wait.

  33. No. I am definitely not ready for fall. Fall means soon it will be bitter cold for six months. It's starting to look and feel like fall weather right now. So, thanks for showing me that there is one good side to fall. Great accessories! :)

  40. I love the fall time but I'm not in any hurry for it! I want to savor every summer day before I have to give it up and call it fall! Your photos are all great and probably later in September I'll be ready to decorate for fall.

  42. Thank you for the inspiration...love all the photos. :) I am *so* ready for Fall. In fact, I unpacked all my fall goodies this weekend and plan to start decorating sometime this week. I just bought 2 new fall wreaths today, and they are already on the front doors...blush!! I'm the 1st person in the hood to have my fall wreaths on the door. ;)

    Have a great week! XOXO ~Liz

  47. Absolutely not! I'm savoring every last bit of summer which is too short here in the Northeast. But when Fall arrives, I will settle in and enjoy it. Beautiful photos!
