Autumn At Home

“Only fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart. For consider what great things he has done for you.”
1 Samuel 12:24

Happy September friends…I can’t believe I am saying that!  Didn’t we just celebrate Memorial Day?!  Although the official start of Autumn isn’t for a few more weeks,  September announces that the cooler temps and fall foliage are right around the corner!  It is still in the 90’s here in the Deep South, so it is hard to think pumpkins and mums!  I haven’t gotten into fall decorating yet, but I thought it would be fun to dip into the archives to see how I have decorated our home…inside and out… in years past.  Have I mentioned that Autumn is my favorite season?!

Simmering my own special blend of spices, apples, and oranges brings that autumnal fragrance to the kitchen!

I love the glow of candles anytime, but especially when there is that little nip in the air

Using my small wooden wheelbarrow and loading it down with pumpkins, gourds, and fall vegetables for a display at our son and daughter-in-love’s wedding!

We sure miss our sweet Oreo who was always in the garden with us.

Our maple trees on a foggy October morning…they weren’t yet in their full autumn glory!

These pumpkins came up voluntarily last year!  I loved displaying them on the split rail fence.

Our kitchen porch dressed with mums and pumpkins…

…our small courtyard beside the driveway

The 3-wheel bike with a load of pumpkins!

Our ginkgo always puts on a golden display!

Butterflies are in abundance during autumn.

Have you started your fall decorating yet, or are you still enjoying the last days of summer?

  1. Your photos will get everyone in the fall mood Pam! I did a little decorating this week, and can’t wait until the pumpkins and mums arrive- you can’t have too many pumpkins is my motto! Love the vignette from your son’s wedding especially!

    Like you, I wonder where time has gone. Summer is such a short season in Maine that I can’t bear to think fall just yet though I’m seeing signs all around that it’s coming.

  3. What wonderful inspiration! Your pictures are gorgeous and have me dreaming of Fall!!! I haven’t started my Fall decorating yet, but I’m getting ready. I have been trying to organize and rearrange some of my spaces. I have also been going through my old Fall decor and picking up some new things to go with it. I hope I can make it all come together. I hope that you have a great day and a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!!!

    Oh, I so enjoyed the look back…and saw a few things I missed along the way. I love the pumpkins lined along the fence rail! The background views of everything is perfectly lovely and are true pictures of fall in the south! Happy September 1st!

  5. You are getting me in the mood with your pretty fall decorations. The summer has passed so quickly. Autumn is my favorite time of year too. Hope we have a nice long one like last year. However, storms starting alarm me.

    Oh Pam, this is all so beautiful! I can’t wait for us to have a taste of the season.

    Thanks so much for sharing at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Pinning and sharing.

  7. Pam, I can’t believe it’s September either! I haven’t started fall decorating yet but your lovely pictures are putting me in the mood! The pumpkin stacks and bright yellow mums are so cheerful and I would love to sit on your bench curled up in the quilt in the crispy fall air! Linda

    Pam, there was so much inspiration in your photos! You really brought the Fall colors to life! Everything looks so warm and vibrant. Your decor is always spot on!

  9. Oh my…. you have the most gorgeous photo’s. From start to finish this is an amazing post. I looked at and read the details with each and everyone. Your cat was beautiful. I love animals so I especially loved this photo. Have a wonderful and safe weekend. It is in the ’90’s here as well, no Fall yet.

    Your home is so festive! Happy Autumn (almost!) By the way I was born in Mobile, and my family moved to TN when I was five. We used to drive thru Birmingham on the way to Mobile.Happy Labor Day!

  11. Chef Carol says:

    Thank you for the fall inspiration. You obviously don’t live in Texas. We are at least 6 or 7 weeks away from anything that resembles fall! Your fall colors are beautiful and your decorations are stunning. Thanks so much for sharing at Your Inspired Designs.

  12. Lori says:

    Wow! Just beautiful! This is helping me get into the mood for fall… I’m kinda fighting it this year, holding on to as much summer as possible! Thanks for sharing at Dishing It & Digging It! We enjoy your creativity each week! :)
