Lighting to me is so important.  I bought this fixture from Spiegel many years ago and I still love it. 
I wound two garlands together, added some pretty Fall ribbon...good enough!

I wound this pretty delicate garland around the base of my little iron lamp on the sofa table..I think I like it!
Both lamp, shade and and garland...garage sale items.  The lamp and shade were $3.00 and the garland was found in the container full of Fall items.  There were several of them.  I loved the delicate colors.

...and here it is all lit!!
The pumpkin candles...little silver candle holder...and candle ring..yep.
Pumpkin candles and the candle ring were in that container and the silver plate candle holder, complete with chimney were from a garage sale.  It is one of my favorite things.

Sweet Mr. Rooster all stuffed with Fall leaves...he is just an all season guy! :)

Another cloche, of course.  Hard to store these things so you just have to use them...*sigh*
Right about now I'm running out of steam!  Just one more...

I love this crow.  He is heavy and even though he is suppose to be out at Halloween...who cares.  I love him.
Should I bring out the witches??  I mean September is nearly over...and it all goes so fast!  I guess not.  I'll wait for awhile but I am soooo tempted.  I LOVE them Witches!

Love and hugs,


  1. You are beginning to get into 'fall' now, aren't you Mona. I love all your ornaments and lights. Is that Brambly Hedge I see there? I love that too although I don't have any myself.
    Can you tell me why the crow is significant at Fall? I've seen him all over the place in America but I don't know why. What is his folklore, please?
    Blessings, Star

  2. Good Morning Sweet Friend,

    Just beautiful. Love the garland on your chandelier. Ah....fall, what a wonderful time of the year.


  3. Mona,
    I am all fallen decorated but havenot brought out the Halloween items, yet. I can't wait, either, so they may come out before the weekend. Go for it! Everything looks beautiful!

  4. Wow, I would say fall has arrived at your house!

  5. I'm finally in the mood to decorate after seeing your post. Balisha

  6. Hi Dear Mona,
    Your fallen decor is looking quite lovely my dear! Love that cloche, good job and the chandelier, I love that too!
    Are the leaves changing there? They are well on their way here.
    Take Care,

  7. Yes, ma'am! You're a Fallen woman alright! I love it. Your home looks wonderful!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  8. Mona girl you are getting all decked out for Fall. So many fall pretties in your home. I love the cloche.Yes you are one of the Fallen women. LOL!

  9. I love all your fall touches!! I have to jump on the bandwagon! It is my favorite time too.Love your music also!!

  10. Hi Mona,
    So pretty all your fall colors. I will be a "Fallen" woman soon too, "I hope";)
    The color of paint we used for the doors is from Lowe's and is called Basket SR812 Valspar signature color.
    Thank you for very sweet and kind comments.

  11. I wanna be a FALLIN' Woman, too!!! The scent in the air, and the feel of the season's turn---those say NEST, and we all scurry to feather ours before the cold comes.

    It's just so nice that the urge to gather and put by is such a pleasant thing---enjoyment of the decorating, the getting out of last year's memories, the recognizing of forgotten or lost bits and pieces which make such a hospitable whole. Those are the joys of Fall, and it's HERE!!

    Next weekend: Hayride to go choose some pumpkins.

  12. I'm betting a bag of candy corn that you can't make it to October 1st without setting out at least one witch! It's okay though, all us fallin' girls are a little witchy!

  13. I don´t know why, but I sort of gets the feeling Youn like autumn :-) :-) :-) That crow is great!
    Take care now!
    How´s Howards knee?

  14. Mona, you make me yearn for Fall! It's still pretty warm here in VA, but I'm ready to go to the storage shed and dig out all the Halloween decorations! Just beautiful!

  15. Dear Miss M...

    "I've FALLEN and I can't get up...!" hahahahah I know I shouldn't laugh at those commercials but I just can't help it! :(

    Now your fall! I do! I do! Beautimous!

    Love to you~


  16. I just love simple fixes to spruce up a thing. Your fall is looking very festive!! Hugs. Tammy

  17. I love your Autumn decorations!! I really like the way you use red .. it's the shade I like the best.
    Thanks for your visit and your comments about Jean and Garlic Gus. I really had a good time writing about both of them!

  18. Love what you've done to enhance your lighting fixtures Mona, so "you" to do that!

  19. ahhh, Mona girl...this all looks so good. You are making me feel so lazy...I haven't done a single thing for fall. *heavy sigh...
    You are mentioned in my post coming up this evening.:))
    hugs, bj

  20. G'morn, Mona ~ I never am a 'fallen' woman. My decor grows 'roots' except during Christmas. Your decor is as scrumptious as last years. So love to see what you will do next ...

    Have a great day ~
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  21. you crack me up. i will forever think of myself as a 'fallen woman'!!!! hehehe!!!!

  22. Everything looks so beautiful and fall-ish! I haven't even begun to think about fall yet. It's still so stinking hot here in San Antonio.
    Patricia :o)

  23. Go for it, NOW, and put out the witches! I stuck mine in an unobtrusive place for now and they'll be ready for center stage closer to Halloween. Probably after I get back from the furniture market. I'm looking forward to seeing all the new things that are coming out for next year!
    I have been a "fallen" woman for some time now- I started decorating about 3 weeks ago and I'm still not done. LOL Life does tend to get in the way....
    Hope all is well with you, Mona. Haven't heard from ya for a while. Love all the color you're bringing out, especially like that rooster stuffed with all those leaves. Hope you get your porch covered. I know how hot it can get where you are. #1 son lived in Palm Desert and I was there during the month of July. Hotter than Hades!! :-)
    hugs, Sue
