Is it Friday yet? Because it feels like it should be Friday. Anyone else feel that way? Eeeeeeesh. It’s been a long week over here already. In fact, yesterday felt like two days crammed into one. Maybe even three. It was rough to say the least. The baby was super cranky and pretty much everything I tried to do was a total fail. I won’t bore you with the details, but it was definitely a kick in the pants kind of day. I’m hoping today goes MUCH better and we just steam roll right through the second half of this mediocre week. But first let’s chat about pumpkins and pretty fall things, ok? Today’s post is one that is super simple and I almost didn’t even share it because I wondered if it’s too simple. Is that such a thing? Decor that’s too simple to even blog about? Probably. And I might be pushing the boundaries with this one, but I figured I’d share it anyway because I know you guys appreciate simple just like I do!
So you might remember that I found this corner cabinet at an antique store in my hometown earlier this year. It was one of my best finds ever and I’ve been anxiously waiting to style it up with a few pretty things for fall. I (obviously) kept it super simple and basic because I didn’t want the decor to distract from the beauty of this piece. I think too many pumpkins would have made this cabinet look cluttered.
I love this picture of my dad helping my daughter at a pumpkin patch a few years ago. It brings back so many sweet memories and it’s the kind of photo I’ll cherish forever. I just love using it in my fall decor.
I actually found that pile of antique table linens at a local consignment shop a few weeks ago. They were bundled up with a hand written note (in old the most beautiful old lady cursive) that said “12 napkins and a table cloth–80 years old”. How neat is that? I love them.
Even though this corner is super simple, I still think it’s beautiful. That old antique cabinet steals the show in my opinion, so it doesn’t really need a lot of flashy fall decor. I actually styled this with a few orange pumpkins at first, but they just weren’t working so I took them out. They were too bright for this spot, so I kept it more on the mellow side with just a few neutral pumpkins, a stack of antique table lines, and that photo of sweet times at the pumpkin patch. Simple!
Thanks so much for dropping by the ol’ blog today. Hopefully we all make it through the rest of this week and I’ll see you back here soon! xo
