Shaking My Tail Feathers with More Fall Florals

This is just the start of  my fall decor.  Believe me, it WILL change as the months progress.  Right now, I'm in "semi-Fall" decor mode.  This means that I'm darkening my colors up a bit, adding more textures and layers, and adding other fall items like pumpkins, feathers, etc. to my decor.  At the first of October, I will change some of this out and add Halloween decor.  After Halloween, it's back to fall. 

I love, love, love feathers.  I made this arrangement last year.  It was my first try at adding feathers to fall arrangements.  I also added them to my "fall tree".  I haven't put that up  yet, but it's on the way!!!!  I am waiting on September 1 to roll around before I do that. 

BTW, I dabbed Mr. Roo with a little white paint today if you notice that he looks different. LOL!!

I made these two feather arrangements yesterday.  LOVE them!!

Here's a look at my kitchen table arrangement that I finished late last night.  It also have LOTS of feathers!!

The colors in it are VERY "fall", don't you think?  I know it's not "traditional" fall decor, but it fits my style perfectly.  Here's a closup of my bronze Mercury glass candleholders from Michael's....

I added a real antler of my husband's to the base of each with pinecones from our yard.  He and my boys are all big deer hunters, so we have LOTS of antlers around here.  (If you notice, I never spend  much on my decor.  I'm all about reusing and repurposing things!!)  I added some of my mother's silver to the bottom.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who's been shaking her tail feathers around this weekend feathering the nest!!  Can't wait to join up to some great bloggy parties this week in hopes of finding some more fall inspiration.  

I was SOOOO EXCITED to be one of Debbie Doo's top picks for last week!!! Thank you, Debbie for hosting such a great party!! Linking up again this week to Debbie's Newbie Party!

  12. Hi Farica! Cool site! Love what you've done for fall. You've given me quite a bit of motivation to get busy! I love feathers, as well. I have a photo of an arrangement that I just did on my site using pheasant feathers. Take a peek and join me!

  13. Great Fall center piece and candles. Love the antlers with the candle holders and that you reuse and repurpose so many things. That's a good thing. :)
