EARLY FALL AT THE VILLA
When I got home from my trip, my dearest had my Fall decorations down from the storage unit, and I just couldn't wait. I know it's still August ~ but our home was ready for a change, and frankly, so was I. I'm not putting out everything this year. I was picking and choosing just some of my favorite things. I love setting our little glass table with my fall dishes and my pumpkin soup tureen.
I've had my pumpkin soup tureen for years. Got it on sale one year after the holidays. When the weather is chilly I do fill it with creamy potato soup, or hearty vegetable. Not just pretty but practical.
Since the apartment is small most of my many pumpkins are still packed away. But this one along with a leaf candy dish fit nicely here on a small ottoman.
When Donna and I were on our sister trip we stopped at a Body works and I picked up some Fall hand soaps. This one is Pumpkin Cupcake, and I'm so tempted to lick my hands when I wash them. HaHa.
The final touch was to add some fall decorations to the top of the kitchen shelf that houses some of my mom's antiques i.e. her gasoline iron, food grinder and sifters. One last pumpkin on top of the refrigerator. In October I will turn it around as it has a Jack~O~Lantern face.
I also change the colors in the bathroom to brown and melon, but that might be too much information. HaHa (no pictures)
Have a great weekend...and if you're feeling like Fall..just pop in and enjoy mine.
BTW ~My header is my willow tree girls (Heart and Soul) sitting in the pumpkin patch sharing their lives. The miniature pumpkins were made and given to me years ago. They come out every year.
