I mentioned the other day how I always find myself getting excited for fall just a little too early. I first noticed it about 8 years ago when I found myself decorating the house with pinecones when it was 100 degrees out at the end of August. I was so happy that fall was approaching, but then I sat back and looked around to admire my work… and it just felt wrong. I put everything away. Ever since then, when the early itch to start getting things fall-ified strikes, I try to stick to just planning for fall, or at the very least, putting out decor that’s more appropriate for very early fall. Like the burlap fall flower wreath I put out in the mudroom next to some cozy plaid blankets that are perfect to use on chilly late summer evenings when we’re outside having a campfire. I’ve definitely been treating myself to a few fall-themed decor goodies over the last few weeks and I’ve been stashing them away to use later on in the season. I’m going to be participating in another fall home tour with all of my Canadian blogger friends this year, so I’m really excited to have some fun decor ideas to share with you once that goes live. When it comes to seasonal decor though, I try to keep things fairly reasonably-priced, 1) So that the ideas that I share are reasonable and accessible to everyone who might stumble across my blog and, 2) Because these things are only out for a few weeks anyway and they’re really just for fun, so we don’t need to get too fancy about it. I thought I’d share a few of my favorite reasonably-priced fall decor finds here today in case you’re in the mood to treat yourself to a little something to fall-ify your home as well.
Autumn Harvest Wheat Sheaf (The wheat sheaf I made a couple of years ago was lunch for a lucky group of mice, so I think I might need to pick up a new one soon. I love the way these look so elegant placed just about anywhere in your home!)
