A Bit of Fall Atop the Fridge


Were you looking longingly for September the way that I have been during the last month? Thank goodness it has finally arrived! This has been one of the worst summers that I can remember. We've had higher temperatures in previous years, but in the past, we'd get a break. This summer it hit the nineties in early June and stayed there all summer long.

I'm not alone in the way I feel. I found this to be pretty much unanimous during a recent coffee with the neighborhood ladies at a local cafe. I also found (was relieved actually) that I was not the only one pulling out the pumpkins and fall decor mid-August. 

I didn't even wait for September to arrive before I started decorating with a pillow here and there, and this little vignette atop the fridge.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year and I am so happy that it is nearly here. What are you doing around your house to welcome the season?

 Crate - Angry Orchard

Plates and Pumpkin - Pier One

Pumpkin Cider - Aldi

Organics - Michael's

Beautiful vignette. I love orange and your plates are gorgeous. We had a beautiful summer here in Eastern Canada. Average 80 temps. I hate to see it go. I understand why you welcome September. I enjoy seeing all your great cooking.Have a great fall.

Bonjour chère amie,

Très jolie vignette... Nous sommes à l'aube de l'automne...
Je suis un peu triste car je n'aime pas particulière cette saison qui arrive. Elle me rend si nostalgique.
J'adore en revanche le printemps.

Merci pour le partage de vos belles photos.

Gros bisous 🌸

I love those plates too, almost bought a set when I spotted them. Lovely vignette. I waited until September, but the pumpkins are out at my place now!

What a lovely display. I love the plates too and I was thinking about buying them at Marshalls. I really do they are so beautiful. I would love if you would share your lovely display at a link party I am hosting. I hope to see you there.
