Fall at Fox Hollow – 2012
I wanted to prove that I really DO celebrate Fall.
So I’ve gathered photographic evidence.
It just doesn’t last long.
Blink.. and you’ll miss it.
First.. I begrudgingly admit, after much foot dragging and denial, that our “much too short” Summer season is over.
And then, for 2.5 seconds I celebrate Fall..
before I excitedly decorate for Christmas.
Here is a glimpse of Fall in our home…
I really do use that
silly tin can craft as a Fall table top display.
I put them on a silver tray though.
So much classier 😉
I guess I did have a pre-Halloween Mini Fall Mantel.
I almost forgot all about it!
I Kept The Mantel Decor Minimal. Again.
Some milk glass, a little silver, owls, pears and the new wreath I made. In Burlap & Nubby Yarn. I very much liked the simplicity and texture so left it unadorned.
Both my little hooties are from ROSS.
And I have gotten my monies worth
out of them in sheer enjoyment.
The pear candle was a birthday gift from my Aunt.
Moving on into the kitchen..
it got a little sprinkle too.

had the cutest Squirrel in a recent post of her entryway and I just fell in love with it.
Isn’t he stinking CUTE?
Well, I happened to find this sweet little salt&pepper shaker set at a local floral shop a few weeks ago, and for under $10 I knew they were coming home with me!
I got my “squirrel fix” now.
I have just become a pinning fool.
If you’re not following me..
come join the FUN 🙂

All your fall sprinkles are lovely!
LOL that is too funny. I will testify that I saw some Fall action going on over here!

Oh I love your cute little new friends. I am loving on that pretty blue over your mantel. Oh my. I love how it offers such a vibrant backdrop to everything you have placed in front. I am anxious to get started on Christmas but I will miss my beloved Fall. 🙁

Fall, schmall! Bring on Christmas. 🙂 With all of the company we’re hosting these days it’s going to be New Years before we know it. 🙂

Fall is my favorite season – the weather is fabulous. But I can’t wait to start Christmas – now that I can get excited about decorating!
I’m nuts for your squirrels too!

I love your home every time of the year, Shannon and fall is no exception. I’m not much of a fall decorator either (I mourn summer. lol!) but I do love to decorate for Christmas. (I admit I love taking it all down just as much though!) I love all of your fall accents…so cute! A little goes a long way when it comes to Fall. 🙂
Such lovely sprinkles Shannon! I love your cans on their class tray..amazing how we can class up a can or vase:) Your wreath looked cute too..only caught a glimpse though.
Lynn Fern says
Oh Shannon I feel the same as you…I celebrate fall because I do love the season. It is my favorite weather around here, but I just LOVE Christmas season. I am decorating today for Christmas..yup before Thanksgiving. But gosh I just love it & love to look at it for far longer than not. Those owls are adorable & that squirrel is do die for as is the salt & pepper shakers. Love it all…

I love your new little squirrel buddies. Wish I could tell you where to find one like mine. I think I got it at HomeGoods last year. Who knows. Yes, time to pull out the Christmas stuff soon.
Looks like Fall to me. It is just simple and serene looking- not overdone at all. I love your little squirrel s&p shakers. They are really cute. Have a wonderful day- xo Diana
