Seasonal Decorating

I am not a good Fall decorator. The colors just don't match any my color schemes. However, the other day I was strolling along ebay avenue and saw this pumpkin pillow by Cinnamonstitch. What a darling idea for Fall - in our colors! She had this sweet kitty too.

I noticed that both of those auctions have already ended but if you're interested, you may be able to place an order.

I know some people slipcover their furniture for the ease of changing the color palette. Take a look at the slipcovers Sheffield's makes!! Wouldn't you just love to have that baby?!

It's taken nearly 40 years but this is what I've figured out about myself... I just like what I like and I don't want to try to like something I don't like. I love the season of Fall but I don't like orange much. I love Christmas but the typical green and red, just don't make me festive. Christmas music though... I could play that for months. See, I'm just some kind of odd ball. I'd love to see how some of you decorate for the seasons. I need some good tips.


  1. Georgous pics! I live in the norhwest mountain of Idaho. Last year I decided to do something different for christmas decorating. I did a northwest theme - plaids, dried berries on the tree, etc. It was nice to break away from the norm! Love, Esther

  2. It is nice to decorate for Christmas in non-traditional colors. Pinks, silvers, that combo...fresh and clean. That pin cushion and angel pillow are wonderful! ~~ Becky

  4. Hi Polly ~ I oopsied and posted the same thing twice...must have more coffee!

  5. Hello,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and glad to meet another cherub lover! You will have to check out my blog & website close to Christmas. I decorate with white trees and most all of my ornaments and embellishments are pink!!! Take care.


  6. For fall I don't do orange either, I use "old" green tones with burgandy tones and that blends great with my pinks. Oh and go find white pumpkins, those are WONDERFUL!! I love them. And I am like some of these other ladies, I use tons of pinks, whites, silver and gold. I also use white and pink feathers on my tree branches. I love the holiday season! just not in a red and green way:-)
    I am rosey the whole year around!!

  7. Well, you will all have to critique my Christmas decor this year. I used to say that I had the tackiest tree in the midwest - big colorful bulb and all the kids handmade ornaments! Maybe we can do two trees this year =) Michelle.. you're starting a blog!! Yay!! -Polly

  8. Polly, you know I am a freak for pink, but when I was much younger and still lived with my parents, I was nuts for orange. My bedroom was orange and yellow. Ugh! What was I thinking? Then in my first apartment after college I had black naugahyde (sp)hand me down furniture from my grandma. In my first real home I decorated in hunter green, cranberry and navy. Now I finally think I have found my "real" style. Keep checking my blog for more pictures of my home and collections. Take care!


  9. Believe it or not, I went through a black phase in my younger years. Of course, I was a teen mom & married to a druggie if that explains anything. Funny how the most obvious things can reflect our lives. -Polly

  10. Hi, Polly, thanks so much for stopping by to see me. Very nice to meet you. I can see we have some things in common. I'll have to check out more of your blog when I get more time. Hope you'll stop by & see me often.


  11. Polly
    Not sure if I will get it going but I want it to be cute and fun! you inspire me:-) what can I say???

  12. While I adore fall colors - I just love your pumpkin. Very victorian and elegant!

  13. I adore the pink pumpkins and the cherubs. Oh, a girl after my own heart. Great job Polly.

  14. LOVE LOVE LOVE the pillow! Because I decorate with greens, golds and raspberries, the fall and Christmas colors work in my home. I am not a halloween fan though. For fall I use mums, pumpkins and gourds. Hey! You know what - there are WHITE pumpkins now! They would be nice in your color scheme!

  15. Michelle, I know it'll be one of my favs! -Polly
