Fireside Fall Fun

We have had nonstop rain here the last few weeks and it has been the perfect time to light some candles and turn on the fireplace (easy, as its gas).
I love the feeling of drawing in and being cozy that comes with fall weather.

This is what I currently have on our living room coffee table.

A wicker tray holds a chest with drink coasters, some pumpkin and fruit picks and of course, one set of my trio of glass vases - so fun to decorate! This time, I've put mini glitter pumpkins and leaves on top of black stones inside them.

Yes, those are Harley Davidson drink coasters we've picked up on some of our travels.


The fire casts a warm glow over the room.


While I like the painted white brick of our fireplace, we are starting to contemplate making some updates to it.
This leaf bowl (a Walmart find last year) needs some kind of snacks it.

A full view of the fall decor on the mantel above the fireplace.

Hope you've felt warm and cozy in my living room. I'd love for you to have a seat by the fire while I make us a pot of tea.

It is beautiful. This morning it was actually cool enough to have a fire...of course I don't have a fireplace at this house. We really miss having one. Your home is lovely.

Your living room is so warm and cozy! I could just curl up with a good book and a cup of coffee.

Have a wonderful day.
