I've finished putting out my autumn decor and always liked this rustic wreath I made one year. With a bit of primping here and there with the glue gun and tightening of a few wires, it has stayed together quite well. It has replaced the summer wreath outside on the wall by the front door. A couple of golden textures from Kim Klassen were added to the original photo.
The hall table has a faux bouquet and the scarecrow (his face is hidden) was another craft I assembled. I like the Sentsy burners, much safer than the tea lights I used to burn and there is a nice scent of apples and caramel drifting in the air.
I even changed up the top of the tea cart and exchanged a lone crystal creamer for my spooner. It was a silver one before but it needs cleaning every couple of months. Yup, off to the left is a vase of dried lavender that never moves. Well, except when I dust.
The dining room table looks about the same every year with the candle holder pumpkin gifted from our daughter and family. I've never burned the candle though and our s-i-l says this is bad luck - is it?
Just a little touch of autumn on the kitchen counter as I need all the space I have for baking.
I bought two of these plates from Marshalls for $3.99 each which sit on the tea cart curate when not in use. No matter the season, there's always an odd plate in the middle but it compliments the other two.
I set the tea things on the counter for a change using one of the new plates for the gingerbread cake. The teacup is one I've shared before that says Bavaria Germany on the bottom.
What better to have with gingerbread cake than a cup of gingerbread tea! It's a delicious rooibos blend from Davids Tea. The recipe for the gingerbread cake is on my recipe page at the top.
I know some bloggers haven't even entertained the idea of autumn yet but our Canadian Thanksgiving is on October 13 and it's nice to have the decor out a month before to enjoy.
