It has really taken me a long time to get
my autumn decorations up around The Gazebo House.
I think I develop SAD once the days start to shorten &
the cloudy, cold, rainy days arrive in Ohio.
I've struggled to get my fireplace mantle decorated to suit me.
I've moved things around all week & I'm still not happy.
I just don't seem to have the "knack" for this that others have.
I can EASILY do CPR on you, insert an IV, intubate you or even
open your windpipe with a ballpoint pen in an emergency,
pack a wound or change a sterile dressing but
when it comes to this interior design stuff,
I'm often stumped!

However, I CAN copy from the best!
Shelia, owner of the delightful blog,
inspired me to put my bell jar cloche on top of my wooden tea caddy.

It was also Shelia's idea to add some color to the inside of our crystal domed cake plates.
This little touch of color, peeking through, really balances the other side of the table.
A few more touches of autumn around the house.

(star shaped candy dishes from Dollar Store, last year)
(pumpkin & leaf plates from Wal-Mart, last year)
I got this idea last year, to put these little pumpkins up
on this high window at our front entrance
She has some of the BEST ideas!
I got the inspirations to do my black urns this way from
Lynne at Lynnes Gifts from the Heart
featured the tour of Mary Carol's Nell Hill.
What an awesome tour!
I'm joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for her
as well as The Tablescaper for her
Thank you to ALL these ladies, for showing us so many ways to beautify our homes.
Now I'm off to fuss a bit more with that mantle!
Thanks for visiting The Gazebo House
