A Taste of Fall Around the House

Hello, dear friends.  TGIF!  The meteorologists tell us that Joaquin may head out to sea after leaving the Bahamas and totally miss landfall.  Whoohoo!  It is cold, wet and very windy here this morning.  Before all my Fall decorations got blown away, I decided to take some pictures this week.  When it comes to decorating for Fall, I consider myself lazy a minimalist. 












My motto is... where ever there is an open space - stick in an orange mini pumpkin.  





My favorite pumpkins, though, are the white ones.





I hold on to my hydrangeas for as long as I can!



A dash of color in the kitchen.


Photo bomb!!



Mini photo bomb.




By the look on his face, I guess this guy doesn't dig mums.


Have a great weekend!


Until next time...

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  1. Your home is so lovely!! I never get tired of a good, boxwood wreath. And I think the guy in the painting rather likes the mums--looks like he's smiling in spite of himself.

  4. I just love those curtains above your kitchen sink. They are adorable...of course, blue is my favorite color, so I love your kitchen. Those white pumpkins look great in there.

  6. MOVE OVER MARTHA....there's a new kid in town, whoa! This is fit for a magazine spread and you put me to shame, all I have resembling fall are a box of mini white ghourds that are still in my garage, pathetic I know. I LOVE your flowerboxes and all the fabulous flowers everywhere and of course seeing my products in your home is always the icing on the cake for me...FABULOUS!

  7. You have one of my favorite houses I've ever seen. Love the restrained fall touches and the fact you haven't slathered the place with spiderwebs and fake hatchets in bloody pumpkin heads. Little pops of pumpkins are the way to go!

    Hope the storm stays far away!

  10. Katie,
    never met a mini pumpkin I didn't like! Your décor is perfect, simple, classic and not over the top!! I try to not go "over the top" with my stuff but sometimes......I can't help myself! Your house looks gorgeous as usual, glad the storm is gonna miss you! The pupsters look like they were enjoying some great fall weather!

  15. Embrace the minimalist in you because all of it looks great. If you want to talk lazy, see my pink geraniums out in front my house. I am hoping with the first frost the geraniums will appear more like I am trying to decorate a haunted house. Love the photo bombs.

  16. Pretty pretty pretty! I noticed the bloggers who live in the South and drink a lot of sweet tea and are actually super sweet ladies really embrace fall decorating. Probably because it is not a sign of eventual snow and ice for them as it is for us. We have your rain today (wet dog!) and I'm glad the storm will pass you by.

  17. Gorgeous house! Your dogs are so cute. And I agree with you on the mini white pumpkins. Happy Weekend!

  18. Katie,
    Everything looks beautiful! I love the white pumpkins, too. Stay safe in the weather! I just realized Jim Cantore from the Weather Channel is broadcasting within walking distance of my house--not a good sign!

  19. Looks so pretty! We're having a ridiculous amount of rain, plus apartment living is not inspiring me to decorate : ) Hubs and I saw The Martian yesterday..loved it! Matt Damon is really good and exactly what I pictured when I read the book.

  24. Kind of off topic, but just saw your latest instagram photo; loved the way you tied your scarf. Could you do a scarf tutorial showing the steps to that particular style you are wearing in photo? Sherri

  25. Gorgeous Katie! The leaves here in Atlanta are just beginning to turn a lighter shade of green. Enjoy your beautiful home and all the gifts of the fall colors.

  26. Beautiful! I love the white pumpkins too! I also love your window boxes....some day maybe but now I'm lucky if I can manage to get something in the pots on my porch! You have a gorgeous home!

  27. Hello, I am a long time fan of your blog. I was wondering if you have any insight on Bar Harbour. We are taking a cruise from Boston to Halifax and one of our ports is Bar Harbour. If you or anyone else any recommendations I would appreciate it. Thanks so much in advance!! Donna

    1. Hi Donna! I don't have your email so I hope you check this so you know I'm getting back to you. I wish I had insight on Bar Harbour but I don't it is on our bucket list. BTW... the Mister worked in Halifax for five years and loved every minute of it. Enjoy your cruise. Wish I could have been more help.

  30. Hi Katie, this is my first time to your blog and I love it! Can you tell me what breed your small white dog is? We adopted one that looks like him but we are not sure what breed he is.

    1. Hi MFC... We think that is a Maltipoo but no one is sure. She and her brother were found roaming the street of Houston over a year ago. I found her on Pet Finder and she was a rescue at a wonderful agency. Enjoy your sweet little dog!
