"Fallerizing"


Click the photos to link over to view the others playing along today...BUT ...first take a peek at my entry!

Fall is in the air...the garden is in disrepair...so what's a girl to do? "FALLERIZE" (right sue?)
yea...not a poet...I'm a gardener...but hey..I tried right!?! Today I am joining in the fun On The Gypsy's Corner...Tam graciously hosts Three or More Tuesday... I am also joining in on the fun over at Its So Very Cheri...She hosts a Wednesday meme to showcase our seasonal and holiday decor! SOOOO...after you visit here..head on over and see what the others are sharing. I am sharing three or more photos ...three or more gourds/pumpkins...or displays! Enjoy!
Kitchen table tray...it is not as purple in real life..lol
Basket made of twigs...changes for the seasons...
It sits in the front doorway.
That big ceramic pumpkin is actually a jack-o-lantern when you turn it around...
Living room table (trunk actually)
Large Cake plate done for fall...
ta-da! the pumpkins...one is made of colored twine..the other from straw..
The other side of my office/sun room...cabinet re-finished and re-vamped by me...decor...me too...lol
close up...
And that is what I did one night last week! Stop by and see what everyone else is sharing!

Beautiful! It sure gets me ready for fall! I havent "fallerized" yet, but it's coming! Your home looks so cozy!

I will leave your comment-in my e-mail as unread and I will try to remember to do that. I get so many e-mails and visits that sometimes I highlight an e-mail so I don't forget something but then so many e-mail come in, it gets buried 3 or 4 pages back.

I like decorating for fall and your word is quite cute, "fallerizing". LOL! The poem wasn't so bad either.

Take care,
Nannette

Julie said...

Oh my goodness,...Tootsie! I have been trying to leave a comment for a month already on your blog, and the comment box would never load...then tonight I decided to turn off my virus protection...and voila...it loaded instantly!!!

Hope all is well with you! I can hardly believe people (such as yourself) are already decorating for fall! It is so hot here, still.

Of course, I realize where you are, it must be absolutely gorgeously cool in the evenings! How wonderful!

Hey...maybe I should just put out a few fall items anyway...maybe it will bring that cold air down here too! LOL!

Love ya, and missed being able to say hi!

xoxo-
Julie

tardevil said...

Your decor is beautiful! I especially like the teapot on the trunk/coffee table! It is gorgeous! I wish you'd make a road trip, and come and do-da my house up! ;O) Have a happy fall!

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

You almost convinced me with your lovely decor but....I am just NOT DOING IT!!! I missed all of summer and I refuse to give in to fall quite yet!!!

Have a wonderful week friend!! Just got back from my reunion which was amazing fun but my silly foot has decided to swell twice its size!! Too much fun I guess!

Love the fall decor & I'm positively drooling over your new cabinet! This was white paint with stain over it??? I'm still thinking about painting the ugly kitchen cabinets. ☺ Diane

Everything looks beautiful. I am already thinking about Christmas. It is never too early to startmaking things.LOL Kathy

Poppedijne said...

How ready you are for fall....Here fall is still waiting to come. Its very nice weather today with about 28° C. That is a hot day. And the rest of the week is also to be very sunny. So I'm going to wait to fallerise my house. But fall is sure on the horizon. You smell it in the air and see the odd leave fall here and there.....

Darla said...

GEEZ!! Ya'll all make me feel like a fuddy duddy. I don't really change decor for the seasons.......thinking about it here lately....and all of you have great easy ideas......I saw the clock in your cabinet read almost 12. I thought to myself.."Self, I bet Tootise took these photos around midnight." Girl, get some sleep!! Everything is beautiful, which we have come to expect from you..I saw a crown!!

Sue said...

Oh Tootsie, you have such a warm and welcoming home! What a great job of decorating ......and I love your term for it-fallerizing-it fits perfectly!

susan said...

Tootsie--Had to come back and wish y'all good luck today. Our daughter is a kindergarten teacher and she LOVES her kids. Hope you are not the only mom crying :)--I was when we sent our last! Have a wonderful day!!!

Thoughtfully blended hearts said...

Wow, you've been a busy girl...everything is so beautiful...fallerizing is working for ya!!!

Stacey said...

Tootsie, everything is so pretty and warm looking. I've been getting ready to fallerize our home but today it's going to be in the 90s. Hmm.. just doesn't seem right.

Denise Marie said...

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Fallerized to the max. It is just so pretty. You do have the eye for decor and accessorizing. Your cabinet looks so pretty.It all looks so cozy and inviting. Great job Tootsie!

Behind My Picket Fence said...

For a girl that hates fall, it looks like you've embraced it pretty well. Ya done good girlfriend!
I'm thinking about fall decorating but suppose I should dust first. Or wait, the dust could be part of the scarey decor! That's it. I'll do it!!!! Where can I buy some spider webs?

"Blossom" said...

Your fall touches make mine look aweful. Your's look so inviting and make me want to pull everything out and try and duplicate what you did. Looks like you have been really busy.
Have a wonderful week; I have all three grandkids this comming week-end. wow, what a week-end this will be. Trying to come up with things to do with them.

Melissa Miller said...

Love the Decor! said...

Beautiful fall displays!

Becca's Dirt said...

So many goodies to show (like show n tell) and they are all so nice. I especially like the twig basket - I guess because it is made of twigs. OOOOHHHH I so love the hutch cabinet with all of your pretties. You appear to be all ready with all your deco stuff out. I gotta get crackin.

Carol............. said...

Your fall theme and decorations are so bright and cheery...and you are quite the decorator...beautiful stuff!

Life is good! said...

you have prompted me to "fallerize"! it's time to dust, so i might as well put away summers decor! cute ideas, thanks!

Erin said...

Gorgeous...I haven't even started--I'm such a slacker! and I'm not giving up on my garden for another week (we are supposed to be in the 80s at least this weekend...)...

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

You have been a busy beaver. Love all your fall decor. I put up a few things this weekend at my house. Still too hot to go up into the attic to retrieve more fall decor. And still much to hot outside to think of fall at my house. But I'm beginning to get more into the mood by seeing everyone else's fall decor.

Cass @ That Old House said...

Your vignettes are gorgeous, and I love the term "fallerize." :-)

But I am still not ready to Fallerize here! (Maybe because I can't find the boxes of Autumn decor!)

Best ... Cass

Its So Very Cheri said...

You got your post done before I got over here.

Chari said...

Hi Tootsie...

OMG, Girlfriend...you have really outdone yourself with all of the Autumn decor...it's all soooo beautiful!!! Fall is my favorite season of the year...I just love all the deep, rich colors! I think this is the first time that I've seen inside of your home...it's absolutely gorgeous!!! I really love all your decorations but one of my favorites is the twig basket filled with Autumn finery...I love the pinecones too!!! That's such a pretty basket!!! Ohhh...and I love that Autumn vignette that you did in the trunk...GORGEOUS!!! My friend, you are such a creative and talented lady!!! You did a fabulous job redoing that cabinet...it's beautiful!!! And...you have it decorated so beautifully too! Of course, I just had to enlarge all of your photos so that I could "drink" it all in! Love that pretty little pumpkin that you have in your cabinet...the one with the horn of plenty engraved on it!!! I think I need one of those! Hehe!

Girl, I can't believe that you got all of this done in a night's time...I need you at my place! I've got all my stuff piled out on the dining room table and kitchen bar...what a mess! I bet it'll take me a couple of weeks to get everything done...I'm so slow! I'm just hoping to get all my Autumn stuff out before I have to take it all down for Christmas...hehe!

Well Darlin'...thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us...it's absolutely gorgeous all decked out in its Autumn finery!!! What a treat!!!

Warmest wishes and Happy Fall!!!
Chari

Jessica said...

Is it fall already? I missed the last 6 weeks of summer....sigh. I love all our fall goodies...I think I only own 2 pumpkins. Is there something wrong with me?

Thanks for your sweet comments on my master bedroom redo....it means alot coming from you.

Now, you haven't gotten your passport yet? I'm having another procedure on Friday ( double sigh )and you mean if I don't rest & stuff ( & stay off ladders & NOT paint ) you will come see? hee hee. I'll be good I promise. Mister said I HAVE to obey doctors orders and then he will make me potatoes for dinner. lol.

Love, me

This is my first visit to your blog and I am so glad I did. Everything looks just wonderful! All of your "fallness" blends in so well with your decor. Thanks for sharing.

Everything looks so pretty. I went with hubby to Kalamazoo yesterday, noticed how much the leaves have already turned.
Take care of yourself.

Rhonda @ Shellbelle's Tiki Hut said...

I swear, the air got a little cooler and the leaves outside my window changed colors while I looked at all your Fall decor!

Then I came back to reality — I live in Florida, we don't have Fall here. So, thanks for letting me share a bit of yours!

Summers Over — Not!

Inspired Comblogulations said...

Guess I need to get into the "Harvest" mode...it is still so hot here in Texas and I am so buried in the woods...ok enough excuses...I will sleep on the oportunity to celebrate the season. Nice Harvest decorations Tootsie!!!

Teresa said...

Noo, too soon! In my mind it is still august and I refuse to admit that summer is over. I guess I need to get out of the past and move forward...maybe next week!
All your fall stuff looks wonderful! I will let it inspire me.
