Simple Seasonal Decor~

In my humble opinion, simple decor is the best kind. I just thought I'd share with you a couple of easy autumn/Thanksgiving decor ideas.

These cute blocks were actually a gift to me from one of my dear friends, but I thought they were so cute, I wanted to share them with all of you. She painted a couple of wood blocks black and then decoupaged some fall themed fabric on the front and finished it off with pretty grosgrain ribbon bows. Simple and pretty!

And what can be simpler than gathering a few fall berries and putting them in a vase. I love the clear pitcher because it really puts the emphasis on the lines of the twigs and the color of the berries. They just pop!


And finally, the simplest of all fall decor...unraked leaves. Just kidding! Two's tricycle was sitting in the driveway surrounded by blown leaves, and I just loved how it looked so I had to pull out the camera and snap a photo. Doesn't it just ooze a vintage-y autumn feel?



Happy Wednesday~

You have a red barn? How absolutely perfect! Love the tricycle pic. Classic.

Those blocks are really great!! Since we live on an acre covered with trees the leaves are everywhere...no use in even trying to deal with them right now when the trees are "raining" leaves. That is just to cute with the tricycle sitting amongst them.

I just love seeing all of the fallen leaves on the ground & swirling around as you drive down the roads.
Ahhhh, Fall.

I love the picture of the bike!

For some reason my 12 year old son pulled his old tricycle out of the barn the other day and it is still sitting outside. Perhaps I will get my camera and snap a photo too. Thanks for the idea!

Love the blocks! What a great idea. And it turned out so nice! And who doesn't just love a pile of fall leaves. I tell myself that I don't rake mine because they are part of my autumn decor!
