More autumn decoration

All of my autumn decorating is finished now and we can sit back and enjoy it!  You can see my autumn front door arrangement here and my autumn mantel here.

There are just little touches here and there around the house to remind us of the change in seasons.  Plus there is an opportunity to move things around which you know that I love to do.  As always these are things the come out year after year.  I haven't bought anything new this year other than the wreath on the door which I already showed to you.


I love these glass apothecary jars as I can fill them with all kinds of things depending on the seasons.  I recently emptied out some crochet strawberries from one.  They are now full of pumpkins - of course!


One of the doors in the hallway has this wreath hanging on it.  I made this last year and had it hanging over the mantel, but it obscured the picture that hangs there too much so this time it went elsewhere.  It was made from a kit of leaves, and I kept it safe all year to use again.  I hope that I can keep it for many years because I love it.


Some simple things here and there, metal pinecone candle holders, more amber glass and other touches.  Including of course a brass pineapple!  You know I love pineapples and they are very on trend right now.



Although I didn't buy anything new, I have made a couple of things.  Crochet pumpkins!  The little ones are a bit round, but pumpkins come in all shapes and sizes don't they.  I am very pleased with the way they turned out considering that I just figured out how to do them myself and made things up as I went along.

I also poked some more pumpkins under this dome.  It is pumpkin a go go at our house right now.



Another pineapple and some little china pumpkin dishes - I should have moved the domes so you could see them better.


This bunting was made for my mantel last year.  I might use it on the mantel in November, I haven't decided yet.

I will add some Halloween things in a week or so, but not just yet.  Only a few things here and there.



The kitchen windowsill got the autumn treatment too, but in a more culinary way!  The addition of orangey brown ceramic pieces and some china pumpkin baking dishes.


Just a little touch to remind us of the change of season.  I also changed the fruit bowl to a piece that matches the jug you can see above.


When I put out the Halloween pieces I will share them with you, but in the meantime this is how the house is dressed for autumn!

  2. Lots of lovely Autumness, Amy. I'm working on Christmas decorations at the moment, just because it will take me that long to finish them. X

  4. Love it all Amy! I could look at Fall decorations all day & never tire of it! I absolutely love all the pumpkins ("a go go" made me Lol!) And I love how you decorate your window sills so well. ;)

    That wreath is so bright & cheerful. Just love that!

    But the crochet pumpkins just capture my heart. I just adore them!
    Thanks for sharing. Happy weekend & I'm back to blogging this week. Xo

  8. All very pretty, Amy, but crocheting a pumpkin would be a step too far for me but I love your windowsill filled with autumn-coloured ceramics, they're lovely (and they're useful.) Old William Morris (not Lord Nuffield of Morris Motors fame) said do not have anything in your home which you do not believe to be beautiful or know to be useful (well, something like that!) Maybe a little squirrel could sit on the knitted pumpkins if you put them in the garden? That would make them useful, tee-hee! I'm only joking, and I confess they are rather pretty.
    Those lidded jars - I believe they are jars that were once in a sweet shop. I have one - I use it for flowers, sans the lid.
    Alan Titchmarsh has written a good piece in today's Sunday Telegraph. He's all for Harvest Festival rather than Hallow'een and I'm with him on that one. Although I'm not religious, I do think Hallow'een is overrated and over commercialised. As for the nasty Trick-or-Treat-ing, well, I'd better not start on that rant ...

  15. Oh it's looking lovely Amy. I especially like the big pineapple, the pumpkin baking dishes and the crochet pumpkins. And the candles and glass on the windowsill are really pretty. What a beautiful job you've made of decorating your home for autumn. You've inspired me to go and get a squash or two from the garage! CJ xx

  16. Your house looks so cosy with all the autumn touches!
    Makes me want to do something like it in our home too.... :-).
    Maybe a wreath or bunting; somewhere where our cats can not reach it anyway!
    Thanks for the inspiration, love from Mirjam.

  20. I do admire the way you change the decor in your house for different occasions and seasons. I just can't be bothered with the effort, except for Christmas!

  21. I enjoyed your autumn decor.. very similar to what I put out. Simple, easy, with orange, gold and rust colors. I also wait until about a week before Halloween to put out those kinds of decorations. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  22. Lovely Amy. Maybe you should have been an interior decorator, as you're so imaginative with your settings. I'm sure I wouldn't know where to start with those crochet pumpkins, so well done. Take care.

  27. I am impressed! I plan to put up a post of my autumn decorations this week. You do a lot more than I do - it looks nice!

  28. I love all your pretty autumn touches! My favorite is the windowsill lined with all those little "pretties". I've always wished for a wide kitchen windowsill to put things on and change around according to whim and/or seasons.

  29. So many pretty seasonal treasures, Amy! Love how you display the pumpkins and little dishes in the apothecary jars and domes. Your wreath is wonderful and how pretty is your windowsill looking out on the gardens! The crocheted pumpkins are adorable. Hugs xo Karen

  40. I love your seasonal decorations! I am fascinated that pineapples have returned to fashion in a vengeance. I have a crockery pineapple that used to be my nanna's so now that pineapples are 'on trend' again in the shops, I have been meaning to perhaps find some pineappley friends for my kitschy one. What is the deal with 'pineapples' these days? What is it that has brought them back into fashion?

    I love the way you change your displays with each season. I would love to be able to do the same but storage during the 'off seasons' is a challenge. What are your secrets to managing things, remembering where they were kept etc. If it were me, I can see that there will always be that one piece that goes missing and by the time I come across it, the season will have changed again! hehehe Your displays are so beautiful, Amy.

  41. Always good to mark the season with a little rearranging and to dig out forgotten treasures. Very autumnal in your house.
