fall built-ins

25 September 2014

I’ve been toying around with the built-ins and challenged myself to autumn-ify them without spending any money -- use what I had in my fall décor (that survived the move!):

the only thing that I updated was my acorn frame -- it took quite a beating on our move out here, so I had to mix some fake acorns in with the real ones from our hike to Cascade Falls in Virginia:

I’ve collected quite a few white pumpkins over the years (these are all fake) in a thrift store basket

I’ve been super homesick for a Virginia autumn -- I was transferring pictures from my hard drive and it about killed me when I came to October.

    I love everything about those shelves! The globes! The phone! Very cool.

    So Pretty. I love your acorn frame. Here in Utah the leaves are just starting to turn but it won't be long now.

  4. I moved to CA from New England at the end of the summer and the first autumn here I was so missing the fall color it hurt.

  5. Darn, as a Utah resident I was hoping those pics were from Utah! I don't want to drag my kids up there two weekends in a row so I am trying to time our visit for just the right weekend.

  6. Nothing beats fall in Virginia. We just bought ten acres and LOVE it -- the leaves are just starting to turn a teeny bit. Can't wait!

  7. Your shelves look great for Autumn, Melissa. Just enough seasonal touches to be relevant and pretty!

    There's no Fall as pretty as a Virginia Fall, in my opinion. I'm sure you are missing it. Here's an idea: you could come see me in North Carolina and we could drive up the Virginia right quick. What do you think? :)

    I just love your styling! And, we miss you here in VA -- come back any time ;)


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note!
