I did my fall decorating a few weeks ago, but have just gotten around to photographing the areas and posting about them.  I sort of cut back a little this year, as I have not been feeling quite up to par.  But, there’s plenty to get the mood across, I think.

This is the antique oak table that sits in my rear foyer…OOPS!  left my keys and sunglasses in the pic!  The mirror below is in the same area.



This table is in the front foyer.  The pumpkin is a painted clear glass, similar to mercury glass, but not as opaque.  It lights up with a battery powered bulb and was a gift from my sister, Joy.

I enjoy setting my dining table with the seasons, as well.  There was only a set of 4 available when I found this china, but I liked it so much, I bought it anyway!   Since my table seats 10, I just set the places in the middle and that leaves the beautiful wood visible on the ends.



The runner on the table is an antique piece found for me by Tina and Shirley.  All hand stitched in shades of orange and brown, it is one of my favorite fall pieces.


Here’s a close-up of the buffet in the dining room.  OOPS…again!  I think the shade on the lamp is a little crooked.  Oh, well, this is a REAL house where people live…and a little boy stays quite often!

Then comes the mantel, my favorite place to decorate.






  1. It's all so pretty. Your decorations are really beautiful. I only have a few items which I haven't put out yet.

  2. So pretty, Tonja … my favorites are your little scarecrow lady, the bird plates, and that beautiful runner. Isn't it nice to use things loved ones have given you …

  3. I enjoyed every picture, every scene—they BRIGHT me with all the colors of Fall! What a wonderful collection of beautifuls you have, and how elegantly and cozily they are displayed.

    How DO you keep those sweet little hands off all the goodies, especially those tempting soft "balls" of every size on the foyer table? At my house, they'd be underfoot, in the toy tub, outside, and under every chair and table in the house.

    Just wonderful, and I'm so glad you shared.


  4. Absolutely lovely, as always!!
