Just a Touch of Fall

It doesn't feel much like Fall here yet.
The days have been wonderfully warm and even up into the 90's recently.

I am loving it... but it does make it a little harder to get into the Fall decorating mood.
I wanted to put up a quick and easy mantel display in my office
with just a few touches for now.

A few pale pink roses
and a delicate birds nest

With tiny bouquets of wildflowers
I love adding blooms to my Fall decor.

This handsome pheasant was a recent thrift store find 
I tucked him in among a couple of tiny white pumpkins 
and several mossy branches 

Just a collection of simple elements mostly gathered from the yard 
for a super quick vignette in the office.

Hope your week is going great!
Busy -busy over here~ and I am working on geting all the Fall touches up this week.
Well... we'll see how that goes!

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Courtney I love the idea of putting pumpkins in nests! That is so creative and something I had not even thought of. I have several nests I could do that with. Hope your week is going well.

  2. you create such beauty in every season, courtney. thank you for sharing your home and so many beautiful moments.

    Hoping cooler weather comes your way soon...we are having cooler weather this week and it is so nice. Pumpkins and nest...what a wonderful combo.


  6. I like your soft and romantic touch-of-fall decorating Courtney. Just enough to hint at the changing season, while still enjoying the late summer roses.
