So, how many of you out there are ready for Fall? Raise your hands! Me too! I can’t seem to keep my mind on it being summer still. I think with this freaky hot summer we have had, it’s my brains way of escaping.
And subconsciously I seem to be making little changes in my home décor towards Autumn colors. I hadn’t even realized I was doing it.
I had a Summer cloche on this little table until just recently. But, when I found two wood candlesticks on a recent thrifting trip, I decided I wanted to change it up a bit.
I hadn’t seen a pair of these candlesticks in this good of condition in years.I am not sure of the company that made them but, I know they are circa 1950’s.
Neglected and overlooked on the shelf, I scooped them up and brought them home. And why are these old wood candlesticks so special? They have hidden treasures.
Unscrew the top candle cup and you have 4 wood napkin rings. Screw the candle cup back on and you have a totally different looking candlestick along with your four napkin rings!
How fun is that!
I decided I just had to use them now. I don’t use much warm wood accessories during the Summer. But, like I said earlier, I am ready for Autumn!
I grabbed some old (1932 & 1947) beaten up books. The colors felt Fall-ish and right for this vignette.
I know this is not everyone’s cup of tea but, I love old mis-shapened handmade candles. These are pretty rough. They came in a big ziplock bag of misc. candles at a thrift store.
I have to keep my shamrock plant on this table. I have tried it everywhere else in the house and this is the spot it has chosen to live! And I really like my white ironstone set it is in.
A big fun tassel added for just a bit of color and interest. And another fun pop of color is on the thrifted embroidered runner. All the colors blend in with the other things on the table except the blue. Which I like how it stands out.
So, that is me starting to tone down the Summer feel and bring in the Fall. Have you started adding Fall touches here and there or do you have better restraint than I do?
