Welcome to my "just a little bit" Fall decorated house. For some reason I just don't decorate a lot for Fall but I sure am loving all the Fall decorating posts I'm seeing out there. Way to go ladies! You are all so inspiring!
We'll start out at my house and then I'll take you to see the Historic homes of Boonville, Missouri.
Pictured below is a silver plated antique brides basket filled with Red Delicious apples and an amber art glass mug filled with apple cider. I got it for a dollar at a local antiques mall and I thought it was so pretty with the enamel work decorating it. It seems to have a little Fall flair to it.
Inside I have a little tablescape going on in the dining room and THAT is as decorated as it gets for now. I'll be taking it down next week and getting out the Halloween for a while and then Fall goes back up again.
For the centerpiece I used a pumpkin tea lite holder and placed it on a cake stand for some added height
and used two glitzy crows for a little bit of bling. One on this side with the yummy candy corn...
and the other one over here. This is my favorite side. I had a little fun with some minis. I got 3 mini hay bales and this red lantern you see at a garage sale last weekend. So I added my little scarecrow plant pick and a few candy pumpkins and am good to go.
And now, I want to show you some beautiful Victorian homes in a small town here in Missouri. Several of my pieces of Victorian furniture came from auctions here in this town. My dream is to live in this wonderful little town. Sigh...
I took these photos late last Fall with the intent of showing them here on my blog. One year later, here they are. This is just an outside "drive by" homes tour, no inside views at this time.
Look at this one (below), the paint colors just scream out Autumn, don't they?
The next two photos were taken around Christmas time.
Below is the DAR home. They open up for tours every Christmas. It is absolutely gorgeous inside! If you are interested in reading more about it click here. It was built in 1895.
And the house below is just across the river, and has even been flooded a few times. It is a Bed and Breakfast and is supposed to be haunted by the owner who was a steamboat captain, or something like that. It was built in 1869. If you are interested in reading more about it please click here.
