Day 16 Fall Countdown


So, my blogging hiatus is over. I am recharged and ready to enter back into my blissful little corner of the blogosphere. Today for our countdown, I am giving you a potpourri of fallspiration.

Day 16

My decorating idea for today is really basic and simple but I think it is quite lovely.

I love this idea of just taking a vase or apothecary jar and positioning just a few leaves in an interesting way. Very simple but striking. I think I am going to do a grouping of these.

Another thing for fall that we always do around here is add some pottery to our regular serveware. We got to pick up a couple of new editions on our trip. I love drinking coffee out of a rustic looking mug this time of year. I happily sip and  get transported back to that wonderful weekend away. We have quite the collection now, but these are getting top billing.

Total bonus that we could purchase the same ones that were in our cottage!

Last but not least, a little teaser of our 10 year anniversary photo shoot. I am going to do a post on my dear friend, Tara, and her photography talents coming up, but she shared this and I have to give you guys a sneak peek! She is so gifted! And it fits the autumn theme we have going here at Bliss…imagine that!

So please go like her on Facebook and check out her webpage and blog at

Get ready for that warm and cozy time of the year!

    Simple decor, but very pretty effect! I think a grouping would look really neat on a mantle or side table. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next! PS – you’re inspiring me to add some autumn decor around my house! I usually just save up all my seasonal decorating for Christmastime, but I think a few glittery pumpkins and leaves will be necessary this year :)

      Oh, how fun! I am glad you feel inspired! I usually don’t do much fall decor either, I just keep it simple. I do like fresh pumpkins outside. I let my son help me do some halloween decorating right before the night we trick or treat, but I am the same–I go all out at Christmastime :) Fall decorating for me is more about transitioning my home for the cold to come, blankets, more texture, maybe a few seasonal touches, and bringing lots of natural elements in (wood, leaves, branches, etc.) Happy decorating! xo Kristin

        I love your ideas about bringing in heavier fabrics and natural touches. Those accessories can make the biggest difference! I can’t wait to see your decor ideas for Christmas! ;)

      Thanks, Gilit! That is so sweet! I will try to post about it. I feel like I’ve been a bad awards receiver lately! xo Kristin
