More Autumn Decor

This is my autumn village ~ this year it's on top of the tv cabinet, last year it was on the mantel (below):


I love how the village houses/shoppes have little scenes within, such as this home where some autumn baking is going on:

And the farm is always busy at harvest time:



I have these four seasons slates, and I'm featuring the autumn one at this time of year. This is very much like the area in which we live; it's a farming community.


I found this little fall bottle brush tree on a shopping jaunt with my friend Gwen last year..... we each bought one to remember the special day.

(I hope those of you who come here expecting my usual pink roses aren't too disappointed with the diversion to autumn. It's my favorite season, and I'm thankful our family room is done in colors more accepting of traditional autumn tones......

I did go thrifting yesterday, and will have some pastel flowery things to show you soon! I hope you'll stay tuned!! :)

A sign hangs above a door in the family room ~ a reminder, as our blessings are many!
Thank you for visiting! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

What a great idea! I have never heard of or ever seen an autumn village. It's beautiful! I love how the people inside the houses are busy doing what people do. What a sweet treasure Becca!

Hi Becca, I've been MIA for awhile, so thought I better pop over & say hi. Just love all your Autumn decorations, we have lots of colour during Autumn here in the Blue Mountains too. That view through your dining room door is so gorgeous, I can understand why you appreciate it so much.
Hugs, Coll :-}

Love the little village. Who makes these? I still do quite a bit of the autumn colors, too, as it is my favorite time of year. I love how you have decorated!

I did buy a white satin pumpkin this year with pink on it for my bedroom!!!
