Adding Touches of Fall

I'm linking up to Kimba's DIY day-be sure to cruise over for lots of cool projects!

Keeping it simple around here this year. School and always saying “yes” has been keeping me busy, it’s left me with little time to add fall touches around the house.
To keep it simple I’ve brought in a few natural elements and textures to make my home a bit more cozy for fall.
Sticks in a silver urn make a great statement, I love the juxtaposition of the shiny silver and rough birch branches.

Acorns gathered by the kids look right at home in an antique dish.

And some pillows add warm, cozy texture.
Fall in just a few minutes, with very little effort and very little money. Now all I have to do is plump up a few pillows and snuggle under a cozy blanket with a good book. Doesn’t that just say fall to you?

  1. I love your new blog look. That's a great header! And I smiled when I saw the same stack of books that we have in our house. Also love your "yes" post...very convicting for me as I probably say no way too much. And like you I have had zero time for decorating and sprucing up of any kind in the midst of life and homeschooling. Maybe I need to say yes to myself a little more too.

    Happy Fall!

  3. Love the use of the ice bucket!! Great idea! I just fished some dry sticks out of a pile that DH cut the other day and need to do something like this with them.
