The Blessings of Autumn by Thomas Kinkade

Elation is the word of the day courtesy of the “cold” front with no humidity currently in place over our little corner of the world.

Recent conversations around Places In The Home include how the bright white light of the afternoon sun together with cooler mornings and evenings indicate fall is in the future.

We joke about Louisiana’s false fall (which is an actual season in these parts), and my son can’t believe there was a prolonged fall season 40+ years ago when I was in high school.  Mid-September through November saw sweaters, flannel shirts, and wool suits the favored Friday night football games fashions.

Good times and great weather!

“By all these lovely tokens,
September days are here.
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.”

—Helen Hunt Jackson

In the world of seasonal decorating it’s the small touches that count.

Small touches make a big impact on your dominant decor style which in turn accomplishes the intended purpose of seasonal decorating- to create standout statement vignettes, spots, and corners ready to capture the eye and the essence of the current season.

Crisp fall days into nights supply the seasonal backdrop that inspires cozy times spent outdoors.

Dining al fresco under a harvest moon is one of the highlights of the season and a perfect way to cozy at home.

Flannel fabric remnants become a tablecloth, a copper pot or cauldron filled with faux or real seasonal stems and branches a stunning centerpiece, candlelight the night light of choice, and the good china a fitting addition to a fall under the stars tablescape.


Under consideration for a big ticket purchase is the gorgeous Alana Lawson Accent Arm Chair Metal Casters.

Fawn brown velvet complements the light birchwood legs with front casters.
