A Little Touch of Fall

It's been a long hot summer, one of the hottest in many years.  Recently though the temperatures have come down to the point that I can start bundling up in my favorite sweater.
Of course with a change in the weather come some changes in the house.  Yea!
I wanted to create my Fall decor with what I had on hand.
This was so fast and easy and I love the result.

I grabbed a large glass cylinder that I fill with ornaments during the holidays.  I've been collecting antlers for a while and thought they'd be something different so I balanced them inside the jar first.   Next I combined faux acorns, a bag of Fall potpourri filled with an assortment of dried nuts---good smell too---, and some small pine cones from a friend's back yard.  I just randomly poured the mixture around the antlers and let them fall wherever they wanted to.  I think they did a good job.

For now I placed the arrangement on a small vintage cabinet that I recently added to the family room.  This cabinet was for sale at the store, and lucky for me, no one purchased it.  I love when that happens.  I have a rule that I never buy anything to sell that I wouldn't want for myself.  I have to say that some of my favorite things in my home are items that no one purchased.

I'm working on a Fall mantel and will share when I finish.

What are you doing in your home for Fall?

I just wrote another post with more Fall decor ideas.  Click here to see more.



  1. I love this arrangement, I would never have thought of antlers in a glass vase.

  2. Hi Kathy, I am on my way to look for a vase to put my antlers in...looks great. I love the little cabinet too.

  3. Looks fantastic. Great idea with the antlers.

  4. Okay now I need to collect antlers! I love this take on Fall decor. I have the same rule -only buy what I would keep.
