Autumn Days: Around the House

Per Amie's request, Autumn decorations around the house.
This glass canister started out with real gourds. Since they didn't get any air they rotted in a week. I found these fake gourds at Joann's and loved them. If you didn't know, darn now you do, you would never know they aren't the real thing.
The mantle. I still need to stop at the antique store and purchase a third. Remember the decorating rule of odd numbers? I know Leigh Leigh agrees with me on this rule.

I brought this table runner home with me from a shopping trip in CA. Even the picnic baskets are getting into the Autumn spirit. This box was my paternal grandfathers. I change up the decorations for each season.

Didn't you have an exciting weekend to write about? Better hurry up, or you'll be scooped! Nice decorations. I'd be happy with a clean house!

I love autumn and I am really missing it right now. It is not all that impressive in Atlanta.
