Sneak Peeks of Fall ...

Happy September, friends!  

I can hardly believe Fall is officially just a few weeks away!  Of course, you know I couldn't wait until then to start splashing colors of the upcoming season around the house.

And, lucky for me, Bath and Body Works puts their Fall candles out in August ... with "Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin" being the perfect scent to get me in the mood to "get my Fall on!"


There's something about the colors, elements and traditions of Fall that make our house feel like "home," whether it's a putting together a colorful vignette on our kitchen table ...  


or showcasing a single pinecone in a glass cloche.


A once empty bowl looks so much happier filled with pumpkins and raffia ...


Fall sprays (and a sorry attempt at a bow) now "crown" a lantern ...


and, urns somehow become the perfect place to nestle burlap, white pumpkins and splash of orange leaves.


Words of the season begin to appear ...


mercury pumpkins come out of hiding ...


and, unwanted visitors somehow become welcomed guests!


And, after SEV-eral attempts, I *think* I'm finally done with our Fall mantel!


Above all else, this season always reminds me of the importance of family, which is why I love putting together our Fall family tree!  It has become a yearly tradition and, admittedly, every time I hang this picture, I wish my son (now 7) was that 2 year old cutie-patootie again!


Soon, I'll be sharing sneak peeks of how Fall has crept onto our screened porch, too!

I can't wait to see how all of you have added the colors of the season to your homes!

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Love your sneak peeks, Becca! I am so ready for fall. I dug out my fall decor over the weekend; and like you, lit my pumpkin spice candle to get me in the mood...even though it's still 100 degrees outside...lol!

I've been anxiously waiting for you to start posting your Fall decor, Becca! You are my inspiration, my "go-to" blogging friend for all-things pretty! I am so grateful that you started the Family Tree and were so gracious about my blatant "copycat." I pass by my Family Tree a hundred times a day, and it always makes me smile. Thank you for always being so clever, creative and gracious about sharing.

Hugs,
Carol

Luvly Becca. Luv the pops of orange all over!
Fall is slowly creeping in. I am having a design dillema this season. Not sure if I want to splash the oranges, russets and reds all over the place or if I want to go with a more natural theme... so I am taking it slowly as my brain fights with this. In the meantime I am enjoying yours :-)

Love seeing all your wonderful bits and pieces, Becca. You always do such a nice job with everything...even your bow-you silly girl. I have to say though that your last picture is my favorite-that darling little two year old face grabs me every time- xo Diana

Petra said...

Hi Becca - love the white pumpkin on the white urn. And yes, it is sad when our little babies grow older - mine is 11 now and looked a bit like your little one when he was the same age. I wish I could keep him at 2 and never let him grow!!!

Maria Elena said...

Becca, love all your sneak peeks! Can't wait to see all your Fall decor. I am working on mine slowly. I thought I had a plan.... LOL

Cynthia said...

Oh Becca, you had me at Bath and Body Works candles for fall!!! My favorite and love that pumpkin one too. I just ordered that and the Autumn, another favorite of mine. I love your fall touches and for me it can't happen soon enough. Love this time of year. It is my favorite!! Have a great weekend!!!

Sweet-sweet peeks Miss B! And yes, I know what you mean. Austin is 17 now, and I could go for a little 7 years old Austie to snuggle again ;) They just keep growing though! LOL
