Simply Rustic Fall Details


Pin It
We have been having the most fabulous time, with my folks, touring Germany and France. Europe is Exquisite this time of year! The fall colors arrived just in time to greet my folks with warm hues of burgundy,  burnt orange and golden yellow. The smell of fireplaces isn't too shabby either. Yesterday, we even woke up to a fresh blanket of snow! In a couple hours we are headed to bella Italia to defrost a bit then The States to visit some family. What a fun month we have ahead of us! Because we aren't going to be here for much of the Falliday season, I didn't go as "all out" on my fall decor like I normally would, but I still wanted our home to be festive the days we were here to enjoy it! I decorated for fall a while back and finally have the opportunity to blog about it! Better late then never right?!
I found some adorable "natural" looking owls and wanted a whole family of them in our home. I feel they will look great  in seasonal decor year around!

 The owl above isn't going anywhere...mwahaha!
 These awesome birch-bark trees were a steal at a couple Euros each and will look lovely with our winter decor as well.
Some birds enjoy sitting on telephone lines...mine prefer an elegant wall sconce. The warmth from the candles keeps him warm and there is no chance of electrocution here...

I purchased this squirrel and acorn bowl last year and filled it with more white and jute pumpkins and moss.
Here is another look at my fall front porch, I added a few extra details...
 By the way, the E on the end of welcome (on my chalkboard sign) is under the com...

 I will be sharing more of our village and tales from our trips around Europe soon, but wanted to leave you with this picture of our village's castle from a hill right near our home. Enjoy your fall and I am off to gain 5 pounds eating pasta and gelato! I will update ya'll soon!
Ciao!
