Mixing Fall Decor With Vintage items

It's really beginning to look like Fall here in Manitoba.
The temperature on Monday and Tuesday was in the 80's!!!
And it looks like today will be the same, it's already HOT outside!
I love this time of year.
And since I have added colour into my home's decor, there is no end to the wonderful things that can be 
I painted the little tool tray red, of course!
The lap blankets have come out and the pillows have been switched around.

I have put silk leaves and flowers in my old jars along side the vintage utensils.
Pumpkins have joined the plates.

Oh dear, please don't look at the painters tape that is holding my pot holder up. 
It can't be seen normally, but I held my camera up to take the photo and there it was!

I found the Autumn print last year, I think.
I inserted it into a vintage frame that I had.

Another pumpkin has appeared in the vintage pyrex that I found at the Goodwill recently.
The Pyrex design is a jade colour with gold, perfect for Fall!

In the living room, there is another little bunch of silk leaves and fall-ish items in the lovely white urns that my oldest daughter gave me a few years ago.

I love colour!
Thank you so much for coming by and please, tell me,
what colours do you use at this time of year.

Your home looks so lovely and inviting Cindy. I love the pops of red and yellow in your decor. I have chosen orange this year again as it goes with my decor colours so well. It's been cool here all week. None of your 80's here! We may hit 70 (20C) on the weekend. Enjoy!

I love your touches of Autumn color. I am on a search for a cherry/burgundy lap blanket and some fall leaves to warm up our family room.

I love your colorful additions, happy looking! That little dog print is SO sweet! I use lots of orange, all shades form yellowy to red, and golden brown colors in the fall!

I like how you have added to the red to bring in autumn. It is lovely. I'd love to have a sit in your kitchen for a cup of tea and gaze around at all the loveliness you have there!

I like all your Fall touches!
And also your vintage prints above the typewriter.
Your home is so unique-definitely not cookie cutter. That's what I love best about it!

Looks like you are having fun decorating for Fall. I'm afraid I do not change up colours in my home according to the season. I'm just lucky if I can give everything a good cleaning now and then, lol. For years I've had lots of colour in my dining room, living room and kitchen. These days I opt for a mostly neutral pallet though colour is never too far away.

Loved the vignette with the old typewritter! Everything looks so pretty in your home!

I just love seeing pictures of your home. You inspire me to decorate.

It has been rainy here and in the high 50's and low 60's. I love it. It adds to the charm of autumn.
