Holiday Fancy

I finally found my glass pumpkins! I've been looking for the rest of my fall decorations for the past week and I finally found them!

These three small pumpkins are my favorites. :)

I used the largest one as a bookend...

And this adorable "Harvest" sign also went up on the bookshelf.

This pumpkin is my least's a flatter, two-toned pumpkin.

This was the entire view of the bookshelf and desk.

And more pumpkins to adorn those odd little corners of the room...

Anyone else decorating for fall yet?

I just found the most awesome bookcases ever. This is the Bibliotheque Zelli bookcase, a bookcase that is shaped like a snowflake and comes in both black and white. I really want the black one!!!

I found some cute ideas for fall decor on Better Homes and Gardens. Enjoy!

I got up this morning and began checking the updates of my favorite blogs, when I came across this: Unusual and chic ways to decorate for fall, as posted on Happy Mundane, the blog of art director Jon.

Apparently he's been experimenting with different ways to decorate for fall, and has used everything from tape, to primer, to florescent paint. Here's his fall centerpiece for 2009.

This was his centerpiece last year, for fall 2008. I really love this one!

His inspiration came from an issue of Martha Stewart Living, in which she made pumpkin mushrooms. How cute are these?!

Another shot from that same issue of Martha Stewart living.

Have you decorated for fall yet? I'd love to see your pics. Send them in and I'll post them in the blog! :)

I absolutely LOVE anything and everything by Jonathan Adler. He blends classic styles with whimsical fun like no other designer can. Here are some great pics from his book Jonathan Adler: My Prescription For Anti-Depressive Living.

Inspired Design - Frank Roop

Some of the fabulous designs of the great Frank Roop, interior designer extraordinaire! I'm beginning to see a strong pattern: natural hues enhanced by different shades of blue, no? I think so.

Yummy Things!

Remember the Blueberry filled Crescent rolls that I made a while back? Well, I started thinking about other things that I could make using Pillsbury Crescent rolls.

I started by mixing two small cans of Salmon, a can of creamed corn, two table spoons of relish, two table spoons of mayonaise and some salt and pepper.

I spread a crescent square in a muffin tin, filled it with the mix and sprinkled a bit of cheese on top of each one.

Look how delicious and golden they they look, fresh out of the oven!

A few of the salmon/corn cups came out a bit sloppily, but they were delicious anyway. :)

Bon Appetit!

My dream closet. Dignified...spacious...filled with portraits of dead people.

That's all.

I don't know about you, but when I was a kid, I had a pink room and a pink bed with a pink canopy. Even though my pink days are over I can still appreciate a good canopy. Here are a few amazing examples that I found on Elle Decor. Enjoy!
