As the days grow closer to the official first day of fall lovely reminders of its visual and tactile beauty build the excitement.

For some of you the look and feel of fall may be in the air in your neck of the woods, you lucky ducks.

Louisiana will not feel or see signs of fall for a while yet, but until then seasonal glory is found in photos like this.

Anticipating Autumn's Arrival

Although in full anticipating autumn’s arrival mode, I’m opting to purposely slow walk my seasonal decorating in order to get the most out of the last of summer.

Now, ordering seasonal accents and accessories sooner than later to avoid the dreaded I wanted that but it’s sold out, that task, my friends, is in steady progress.

Updating with colors of the season include but are not exclusive to traditional choices with a few not so on the nose contenders.

Among the mounds of fall is fast approaching social media posts making the rounds I found the following a funny little nugget of truth:

Fall fans bout to mustard yellow, olive green, pumpkin orange
and cinnamon spice us to death.

For every season there is a palette and a presence association that is instantly recognizable thanks to traditional aspects blended with new traditional tones and trends.

Fall fashions lend a stylish dose of inspiration to the overall color canvas of each season.

Blue is often associated with a spring into summer palette, however, the fall into winter color palette of late embraces this timeless tone-on-tone classic.

Blue and white shines as a perfectly complementary autumn accent.

Earth tones-rich in depth, warmth, and the ever important cozy factor-  qualify as seasonal neutrals.

Sent this pumpkin woods candle to a friend as a fall is in the house gift and the scent of the season review is in and it’s scentsational.

Opting to slow walk my fall on parade as not to over saturate is proving difficult, however, ordering seasonal accents and accessories sooner than later to avoid selling out not to mention the super Labor Day sales is warranted.

Visually overwhelmed best describes the dilemma I run into when shopping sites with a gazillion offerings, so my solution is to mock-up a visual board to narrow the scope.

Up first in my let’s decorate for the season plan is a wreath.

Where it’s going to ultimately land will be decided once its complete. I find what works best in my seasonal decorating book of tricks is to let your eye guide your placement.

It ain’t rocket science, folks; what appeals to you is what works.

Every time.

Antique pieces give heart and soul to a space.

Hunt and gather treasures discovered on resale sites are peppered throughout the house with most purchases arriving exactly as described, but every now and then one will arrive clearly not as described.

Decorating with accents in Pheasant theme is my thing at fall, and it is my pleasure to introduce you to the newest addition to the ring-necked Pheasant accents family.

Exactly as described, this vintage Ruebens Originals Pheasant planter is a beauty.

Back in our antiques auctions days I bid on and won a collection of small decorative plates including this Pheasants in flight showstopper.

Disappointment over the pear print at Target I’ve had my eye on selling out turned into oh, this might work when finding this Negative Oranges Framed Art Print on kirklands.com.

I’m not 100% sure this will be just what I’ve been looking for to complete a gallery, but the Labor Day weekend sale price complete with free ship to home convinced me to hit the place order button.

You never know what treasures you’ll find on an afternoon scroll. When this original oil on canvas arrives I’ll share a photo and the backstory that goes with it.

Cozy is wonderfully achieved through deep rich colors, layers of texture and pattern, and the creature comforts of house and home.

“Ah, September!
You are the doorway to the season that awakens my soul…
but I must confess that I love you only because
you are a prelude to my beloved October.”

― Peggy Toney Horton

Always anticipating.
