  1. So pretty! I normally will do a little bit of decorating for the fall and hubby likes to decorate for Halloween but as our son is due on Halloween, I don’t want to do too much because I’d have to put it all away and the timing is off. I do plan on getting some mums if we ever get away from the 90 plus degrees here in Missouri.

  2. I am totally LOVING your fall decorations! We had one of those Charles Chips tins in the bottom of my pantry growing up! We stored all kinds of things in there 🙂 I’m inspired…Now, I need to get my act in gear and get my own decorations out! Life to the full! Melissa

  3. Love, love your vintage home! So many sweet and fun ideas for fall. Your $10. sign is awesome! And it has inspired me to paint an old ironing board top and hang it. May I ask how you hung yours with out much damage to the wall? I don’t want big holes if I can help it. Thanks! Beautiful home, Kelly! Blessings, Pamela

  4. Kelly what an awesome sign, love it!! All of your fall touches look so pretty. I am adoring your fireplace for the fall with those beautiful pumpkins and the mums. The mums on that scale are so smart and that chip can as the pot!!


  5. How many times have I come across a bundt pan at a yard sale for almost free. Now I hope I can find one and enJOY making one of those pumpkins. So creative.

  6. I love your style. Such a wonderful teaser on Instagram. I had to go grab my laptop…so I could see it bigger. So interesting and neat and clean. What a happy place to live. Have a wonderful day! ~k.

  7. Awesome tour, Kelly! I’m loving your mantel with the chalkboard (such a cool idea)! And, your Charles Chips tin is a perfect planter for your mum! I want that sign (oh, and your gold pyrex), too!

  8. Love subtlety of your Fall decorating and there’s no witches or scared y cats! I knew it could be done! So pretty, Kelly!

  9. I enjoyed looking at all your Fall Vignettes Kelly! That upside down bundt cake pan with pinecone is genius!!!!! This reminds me of starting on mine, but I’m still ‘hovering’ on my kitchen, so in the meantime, I’ll enjoy your gorgeous decor!

  10. OK, so all your posts are great; but this one is darn right fabulous! Your comments are all so funny; I’m going to be singing “put a pinecone on it” all day long. Let’s see… love the dinner sign, love the weighing mums, love the gold pyrex, love the pumpkins in the box, love the books and bird under glass. DON’T love the fact I am still waiting for my dear husband to bring home my fall boxes from storage… guess he needs a sweet reminder! xoxo jules

  11. So many cute things I want in this post! LOVE, love, love the cabinet with the herringbone backsplash, AND the round window, AND the scale. So much fab vintage stuff I am dying. I live for vintage, even wrote a vintage novel girlinthejitterbugdress.com). I can’t get enough. Gorgeous photos, too! Well done!

  12. Hi Kelly,
    I love your blog. I have to admit that I’m a tad bit jealous though. I love the birch tree next to the coat rack and new sign. Is it a decal or did you paint it?

  13. Hey, Kelly!
    I adore that sign – I like it so much I may have to try and make one for myself. . .
    ALSO- I did a post recently that talked about my scale collection – i do NOT have a floor standing scale! It’s on the list!

  14. Kelly, love it all. i have some of the vintage autumn hued platters and just ‘gifted’ my niece with some vintage gold Pyrex. (she’s going mid-century, the old days when her dad and I were kiddos). Fall is my favorite time I think. have to go home and dig out all the treasures to show off.

  15. Thanks for the tour! So many pretty Fall details. I love your vintage scales too. I love Fall and crisp days but we had a scorcher today with 35 C that felt like 42 C (95 F feeling like 107 F with the humidity.) It looks like it will be more tolerable by the weekend.

  16. Oh my goodness, I am having heart palpitations over that sign you found!! How cool, how COOL! I love the Fall tour in your home. Now come visit and finish decorating my home please 🙂

  17. You have such great taste! I am in love with that Charles Chips container that you have. My mom worked in an office that had chips delivered in those canisters, and that brought back a lot of memories of me sneaking chips when I would go to work with her. 🙂

  18. Love every detail of your fall decor. I love the mix of vintage with the new and love the potato chip tin with the mums! Great find with the sign! So cool. Just wore my boots to a Saturday baby shower. It was so cold this weekend in Michigan! Fall is definitely here! I love fall but get sad to see the leaves on the trees go bare. Not that fond of November with bare leaves but love snowy winters. I think Spring is my favorite season.

  19. Oh, how I absolutely love what you did in front of your fireplace – such a great idea!!!! We aren’t able to use our fireplace this season due to construction issues, so I will be definitely “copying” your wonderful vignette! Thank you ever so much for sharing.

  20. i Kelly,
    Your fall decor is very, very nice! I love the effect of fruit and vintage items put together. You’ve done it well. I love the Dinner sign, the “pumpkin” and the scale for the candy corn, especially.
    I hope you are enjoying a nice fall day!

  22. Oh my gosh, the mum in the Charlies Chips can brings back so many memories — all good ones! My grandma adored Charlies Chips. I remember a drive-thru convenient store near Sandusky, Ohio, that sold them, along with many other items (ahem, beer and ciggies) that my grandma loved. Beautiful decor as usual!
