i love fall.
i always have.
the slight chill in the air..
the colors of the leaves.

so out came the decorations this weekend.
here is a peek & a few..
{fyi the whole 1st floor is green.. there is one very long shared wall.. and we really like the color}

fall wall quilt... from a magazine a while back...
this space rotates between 4 quilts i've made for the seasons.
{and yes if you pay attention.. its the quilt behind my nephew in my header.. cause those pics are from november last year...}

kitchen table...
fall print that hangs year round...
with mini & apples...
& fall placemats... based off of wall hanging above...

table runner from terry atkinson's book happy hour
{with target candles}

"be thankful" quilt from cottage creek quilts

pumpkin topper.. from a book i can't recall..
& more apples from cider mill road book by nancy halvorsen...
{as well as cute pics of elijah & emma!}

fall quilt from happy hour book... runner was made from leftovers...
as well as my nine patch topper.. because even with the white it has fallish colors & it brightens up the room...

and lastly... more apples... and my favorite leaf bowl..
that doesn't stay empty long..
because one it goes out it means its close to halloween.. and we fill the bowl with dove chocolates... all fall!!


i think all i'm missing is a few of these...
{rachel's adorable pumpkins}

hey rachel can i borrow a few ;-)

I wondered how you could complete so many beautiful projects! Now, I know the truth. You start your day at 1am!

Wow that's a lot of fall decor! I'm new to the States so dressing the house for the seasons is still something I'm getting used to. And I have that same leaf bowl! It's out all year round because it holds our miscellaneous crap and also, I'm lazy to put it away :)

I love all your fall stuff! We spent the morning getting out flal things, too. But with the three little boys, a bunch is creepy Halloween. As I quilt more and they get older, I'm looking forward to the happy fall pumpkins and colors like the great collection you have!
