all hallows eve...

I got side tracked the other day from getting ready for the show and had some fun making a few fall vignettes around my nest.  I like that I have changed to shades of blacks, creams and whites with some warm wood tones for my fall palette.  Now that my kids are grown I don't need all the pumpkins to be orange...



I love the new banner I picked up at the shop for the mirror over the mantel...



I also bought the ghost at the shop ~ thought it would add a bit of whimsy...



When I first saw it I thought it was made of burlap but it is made of wire mesh...


Pretty clever don't you think?!

I kept it simple...




Love my new clocks...



Do you like my headless cabinet cards...


I found them on the Pottery Barn website!

As you can see there are still little hints of orange.
Like this wonderful old song book I found, it is by a Perkins (my Mom's maiden name) just like the one that I have that was hers...



My ledge didn't change too much...


Just added a few baby boos...


I am sharing today at Faded Charm for White Wednesday...


Thanks Kathleen!

Thank you all for stopping by!

Everything looks really cute! LOVE that ghost! I thought it was burlap too! I still have lots of orange because of the kids-and that just says Fall to them~ xo Diana

Robin said...

It's all so pretty. I can't wait until my kids are older so I won't have to use as much orange.

Your new additions are cute. The banner is perfect and the ghost is adorable. I have to say my favorites are the clocks (swoon worthy) and medallons and the song books.

Oh, I think someone was very clever when naming the tiny pumpkins. How perfect and fun it is to say Baby Boo's. Love it.

Rosemary@villabarnes said...

I love your neutral decor. So many unique creations. Looks great.

BTW...I do orange 'cause I like it. Don't hold that against me...please!!!
