fall rituals


"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall." A favorite quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald that kicks of the start of October and the beginning of my fall rituals; dusting off my fall throws and quilts, decorating the house with fall accessories and cooking up something yummy.

Mini Fairytale
Green Goblin
'La Estrella'
Cinderella
Unusual pumpkins like these steal the spotlight from those traditional varieties. None of these varities have to be carved, rather can rest on the porch to greet passerbys or over an entry way table for pops of color and texture. Really, they look good anywhere in the home. After your done using them for decoration, puree them into delicious soups or roast with olive oil and sea salt for a tasty snack.

Pumpkin bread is another fall ritual to fill the house with scents of cinnamon and spice. Check out this recipe from Joy of Baking. My mouth is watering. 


Organic ruched throw from West Elm makes you want to curl up with a good book and cup of tea! I LOVE it in Blue Sage. Add afghans over beds, sofas and outdoor chairs for a layer of cozy.


Bare branches from the garden nestled into vintage milk jars, vases and urns remind me of fall. Cut down the branches to fit small jam and jelly jars. So cute resting on a nightstand.


One brilliant fall container resting next to the front door greets you every day. Touch of Bronze container step-by-step plan.
