More Fall Inspiration

I am joining Common Ground for my Fall Inspiration...Hop over there and join the fun!
 I found this oil painting of eggplant at a thrift store this week.  I had the vintage frame already and it fit perfect.  You will never guess the price... Wait for it....50 cents!  It found a home on the wall in my kitchen.  I don't know if eggplant is fallish, but the colors remind me of fall.  
During a recent trip I saw this beautiful stained glass window.  I love the amber colors, it reminded me of Autumn.  I hope your enjoying  the fall and cooler weather.   You should stop by Starbucks and try the Salted Caramel Mocha Latte, it will definitely get you in the mood for cold weather!

Cooler Weather Makes Me Happy

 A little fall was added to my mantel.  I added sunflowers and a vintage ceramic pheasant.

In the master bedroom darker bedding was added but I went lighter on the window treatments.  I love the cooler weather but I still like to get sunlight in the home year round.  The ottoman at the foot of the bed is for my little dachshund to jump out of bed.  She likes to sleep in, she thinks she is the princess and the pea on our large bed.  I hope you are all having a great week!
