I plan on keeping this blog Christmas free until after Thanksgiving. Just so you know...
I spent Saturday putting away the Halloween decorations and I wanted to Autumn things up a bit so I styled the coffee table. The candle certainly helps with the ambiance. It is the Rosy Rings Pumpkin Farmhouse I mentioned a while back. You don't even have to light the thing. It smells heavenly all the time. It's not too baked goods scented, if you know what I mean. Just a nice fall scent.
Whoops - can you spot the Halloween decoration I forgot?
In other decorating news we finally had our two plaid bergère chairs reupholstered. They are really nice chairs and the plaid worked nicely in our last house but not so much in this one. Not to mentioned they had faded terribly. We went with a pale grey/taupe linen looking fabric. Such an improvement. I kind of wish the wood was whitewashed a bit but I can live with it the way it is.
I also added some globes to the top of the armoire. It was crying out for something up there but there is just a shade over a foot of space between it and the ceiling. I was at Cost Plus (which they insist on calling World Market but it will always be a patchouli scented Cost Plus to me) and I found these globes. This picture doesn't do the green one justice. Some of the countries are mercury glass. So pretty. I kind of wish the stand was weathered brass like the others. If it bothers me enough I'll just paint it.
It's nice to change things up now and then. I feel like I can get into a decorating rut. What I really need to do is pull out ALL of my decorative objets, take inventory and organize it all properly. I have stuff spread out from my office, to the garage and out in the shed. That's a project for another day.
Happy November my friends!
