It's a gorgeous autumn day here in mid-Missouri. The temperature was a brisk 36 degrees this morning but has warmed up to a respectable 57 degrees this afternoon. These are the kind of days I love. And even better, it's my Pearl girl's 7th birthday. Our sweet, gentle 120 pound black lab is one of the best fall finds to date - I heart the big lug! Happy Birthday, Pearl E. Bear!
And speaking of finds, here are a few items I have picked up lately that are fall inspired.
You might recall, I have a thing for Haeger planters (and most other Haeger pieces) especially if they are in white (or ivory) and amber gold. I found two new planters that feed that obsession and will be perfect for an autumn display and they were cheap - less than a dollar for each. The deer figurine might be Haeger, too, but it is not marked. I have an ever growing collection of deer pottery pieces - I will have to do an obsession post about them someday. The small vase is marked "Germany 167 13" - I know the 13 is the number of centimeters tall but I don't know if the 167 refers to the pattern or possibly a maker. The plate is marked "Wood Echo" on the back - I assume that is the pattern name but again, no maker. It was only 25 cents as it has a small chip on the rim which is concealed by the deer's chest.
Another obsession I have, which I shared with you some time ago, is pillows. I just can't stop buying pillows - they are just too versatile and can easily change up your decor with minimal effort. These two are fabulous for fall decorating - and they are both stitched from yarn.I think I picked these up at two different garage sales this past summer.
And speaking of yarn, how pretty is the mustard yellow afghan? I have more than a couple vintage afghans - again, super versatile. Plus I admire that someone took the time to knit or crocheted them - so much love in one cozy throw. You can never have enough love wrapped around you!
So, what is inspiring you this fall? Do you go all out on decorating or just switch out a few things here and there? With cooler temperatures, the time is right to enjoy the bounty of autumn.
