We also came across these adorable little owls and my DA(design assistant), Jean, insisted on buying them for me. She's such a gem and so are these adorable big eyes. I can't get enough of them glowing at night and they are the perfect shade of green to go with my green chevron area rug. Win Win!
The remaining items pictured are some staples from years passed: silver pumpkin, witch hat candy dish, and the glittered "boo" sign (which I will never throw away). I'm kind of a minimalist when it comes to seasonal decor, I don't think you need something for every single table top, wall, corner or door. To me that is just TOO much and way too much work. I think less is more and finding those FEW beautiful pieces is all you need. So what you see below is the extent of my fall decor.
Remember this gorgeous burlap wreath I posted about on Instagram and Facebook?!?! Still so stoked that I found it and still wishing I made it but oh well, I will learn one day. I did recently cut one of the bows off for a little DIY project that I will be blogging about next. Can't wait to share.
I have to admit the one thing that really makes a statement in my house more than any of these pieces is the AROMA when you walk in the door. My brother's girlfriend stopped by the other day and she mentioned that it just smelled "warm and cozy" and she immediately asked if I had cooked something. That is the exact feeling I want to bottle up when I think of fall.
The framed chalkboard print you saw above was a simple jpeg that I ordered off of etsy. They are an inexpensive addition to any space because you can easily throw them in a frame you already have. That's exactly what I did here. This frame used to hold an adorable paisley print but I easily switched it out and I will probably do the same for the winter holidays.
So that's what's going on over here, nothing short of sweet, salty, warm, cozy,
hooting fun inside these walls. I'll be back soon to share my latest DIY which involves some salsa and some rope. Hmmmmm........
