I try to hold off switching out my spring/summer decor to fall until the beginning of October. I've always been in a state of denial in September - holding on to the last bits of summer like a couple of Nicholas Sparks lovebirds after they've reunited. That includes all things from sandals and tanks to decor, but this new 9-5 job that I've been working has me itching to get creative. So this weekend I decided to say adios to a season that is far too short in this area of the world and ring in the first day of fall with an homage to the scariest of holidays.
Our mantle got a whole lot scarier with some vintage finds like these
apothecary bottles, medical prints, a window and some handmade items
like the bats and the cutest little felt witch hat, plus a few other
items that show up on the mantle rather frequently. This vignette is
much more Hogwarts than Hades, which is just the way I like it.
So, have you guys welcomed fall with open arms or are you still holding onto every last bit of summer?
