Welcome To...

I am so excited to be a part of the Autumn Gathering tour! I have a few corners of my home spruced up for the season that I would love to show you.
This hutch is in my kitchen and I love to decorate it for the holidays.

I thought you might like a close up of some of the smaller goodies. This figurine is one of my favorites.
The jack o lantern light string around the costume shop really lights up!

I actually saved this little candy corn box from when I was a kid. Told you I was a pack rat.

The table in my breakfast nook is rocking a Christopher Lowell inspired table scape. So yes, there is probably a paint can hiding under the gingham, giving the floral arrangement a much needed lift.
I had to remove the glass cloche so you could see this pumpkin pull toy. So much better without the glare.
Ooh, and this is one of my favorite pictures! It greets you in the entryway.

Last stop is the formal living room. For some reason, I always struggle with decorating the mantle, regardless of the season. I really like the way this turned out though.
Here are the details...

It's beautiful--everywhere you look, there's something fun and interesting. I love how you used the black gingham fabric along the bottom shelves of the hutch.

I just love your mantle- so elegant and whimsical. The "throw" with the tassels is really pretty. Nice job.

Happy Autumn,
Mary

Fun post! I love all your Halloween stuff.Your home looks very warm and inviting :) When I saw that candy corn box,it looked like it was from days gone by,but I thought maybe they relaunched the same packaging.

P.s. How weird was that scene with Betty and her daughter on the couch?!! "Oh mom you're bleeding" WEIRD!! Maybe she has cancer? What's your take on it?
