Fall At My Apartment

Here is what my fall home looks like. This vintage truck sits beside a weathered house decorated with leaves.
I put a group of gourds and mini pumpkins in this wire basket to showcase on a table in my apartment.
I really prefer the real pumpkins and gourds to the fake ones you can buy at the craft stores.
Here is a vignette I created with a vintage scale, a stack of novels, a pretty vase and a watermelon.
I placed a group of vanilla candles in a round galvanized container for coffee table decor. I surrounded the container with little green pears and under that is a leaf place mat.
The above grouping is made up of items I found at my favorite antique mall in Jenks, Oklahoma. That includes the painting, the small witch painting, and the pumpkins.
I added a bird tin and candles, along with fall and Halloween decor to a vintage wooden box.
Above is a three-tiered galvanized container that holds all kinds of fall decor. I’ve added a vintage mason jar which holds a birds nest and eggs, along with seasonal candles.
I dressed up a grouping of vanilla candles with paper doilies and leaves adhered to the candles with fancy long decorative pins I ordered from Etsy.
Fall On The Patio…
Out on my apartment patio I have grouped pots of mums along with pumpkins and gourds.
Under my green gazebo just out my patio doors, I have a seating area. I added a trio of orange pumpkins to the blue folding table I use out there as a coffee table.
The sound of water gurgling as I sit under the gazebo is so soothing.
Here are the others on the tour today…
