I love fall...the crisp cool nights; the smells of hot cider on Sunday mornings; dragging my family to collect items to decorate with; warm cozy sweaters ; candle lit evenings ; the smell of the wood stoves filling the valley. I am not one to buy a lot of extras I have to store and drag in and out. I have a few favorites, but mostly I use what I have on hand or what I can collect. I love all the gourds, colorful corns, and pumpkins and every year cannot wait until the local markets or farms have them available. 

Though the little lantern is more for Halloween... I love it and always bring it out as soon as fall is in the air
After enjoying this lovely arrangement for a few days, I will save it by drying the flowers... so it can last well into the fall. 
I love being able to bring fall in yet having it blend with the decorations I already have in my home. This is my coffee table arrangement. I just love white pumpkins
Over the next few days I'll add more pictures as I add decorations. I just couldn't wait to share with you what I have already been working on. I hope it inspires you to use what you have on hand, things you find in nature, and most of all create a fall space you love!

I like the contrast of color and texture from the white pumpkins and the pine cones together. Great job! :)
