Fall Tweaking

Maine houseSince we are in Maine from May to November and our winter visits are short, not too much generally happens here in the way of seasonal decorating.  This year, however, I was so impressed by all the fall changes I’ve seen on blogs, Pinterest and in magazines I decided to make a few here.

Maine houseChange began by removing summer slipcovers and revealing the autumn  colors hidden beneath.

Maine houseOn a roll now, I made a quick trip to TJ Maxx, confident of finding some new happy. I was not disappointed!  I found a cozy new throw that will knock the chill off as I sit by the fire in the mornings and read your blogs and emails.  I was delighted to find that it has contrasting sides which suits my fancy for texture.

Maine houseUnlike many of you, I have no mantle, and the narrow stone ledge is an almost impossible decorating challenge. The garland works though it was kinda tricky getting it to stay in place.  If you look closely, you’ll see a few leaves tucked up under the edge of the frame.
