Fall around the house

I love this time of year!  New England is so vibrant and alive.  Last weekend, we did the typical fall festival with the kids - hay rides, corn mazes, pumpkin painting and hay throwing!  So fun.  Luke is at an age where he loves decorating the house for the holidays.  So, that is what we have been doing.  Here are some of mommy's decorations...

Two years ago, I made these halloween silhouette plates.  See here.  I really like them in our kitchen.  They're 'halloweenish' without being too theme-y.

Our fireplace mantel sans artwork.  I haven't even gotten around to unpacking any of our art/pictures yet.  How sad....but, I love the dentil molding underneath the mantel.  And, I couldn't resist adding a couple of little pumpkins.

Okay, and now we're posting Luke's decorations.  We do this every year.....rats on the staircase.

I don't even have the runner rods installed yet.  C'mon what is more important - runner rods or rats??  I realize that this is the first time I'm posting pictures of the inside of our new house.  

More rats on our front door.  I love the diamond pattern in our entryway which was originally done by the pervious owner.  Definitely staying!  As for the walls, believe it or not, the color has grown on me.  I like it for now, but not forever.  There are too many other things that need my attention that are higher up on the priority list!

Hope everyone has a fabulous fall weekend!!


  1. Your decorations are perfect and I love those rats, but I can't get over your home Fran. From what I see it's beautiful. I'm looking forward to seeing more of it.

  2. I love these little peeks inside your new home! And how lucky are you with that fun floor in your entry? It's fabulous.

  3. Oh my word! I love those rats. Too fun!!

  4. The rats on the staircase are great - so fun!!

  5. Just from the little peeks, I can tell your house has great bones. Love that shot of the mantel with the little pumpkins and brass candlesticks! And I really want some of those mice too. They are SO cute!! Do you know where i can get any?

  6. The little pumpkins are so cute, that's a really good idea that's not too overpowering.
