Autumn Decor... So Far

I shared my Autumn Wreath and my Faux Autumn Branches with you a couple of weeks ago. I decided I couldn't stop there, so I have been working a little here and there on the inside of my home. Bringing the beautiful colors from outside, in.
So far I've done a little work in my living room and half bath downstairs. I decided not to add a lot of pumpkins yet since it is only September. My autumn decor usually stays up from September through the day after Thanksgiving, when it's replaced with Christmas decor. Because it's out for so long I only put a few things out to begin with and add over the next couple months. In October I'll introduce pumpkins and in November I'll bring out more stuff.
Here are a few pictures of what I have out so far.
Of course the wreath on my front door.
On a small bookshelf in my living room. I've had this pumpkin spice candle for a couple of years. I just tied some jute around it and put it on a candle holder I picked up at Kohl's on clearance. I gave it a coat of Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint and am thrilled with the outcome.
I have a set of three of these iron pumpkin candle holders. I got the from an AtHome America party I hosted about three years ago. The books are right off our office bookcase, they just happened to be perfect autumn colors!
The whole thing. The vinyl on the wall above the bookshelf is Joshua 24:15 from Uppercase Living.
A ceramic acorn candle holder on one of our end tables.
Iron pumpkin number two.
On our other end table, the match to the candle holder on the book shelf. I used a little jute to tie the leaves on.
Iron pumpkin number three.
The half bath downstairs. The spray painted wine bottle was part of my living room decor until I made my book page bottle. Now it helps lighten the mood a little in our smoky grey bathroom.
And what do ya know? More jute!
Hope you've enjoyed a little peak at my autumn decor.
