Hello everyone.
I hope your week is going well. 

It is hard to believe we are already in October.
Time goes by so fast I feel sometimes there is not enough time to finish decorating our home for one season, 
when it is time to change it again.

I have been procrastinating in sharing our Fall decor and I figured I better get on with it before it is time 
to put our Christmas tree up. :)  

So, today, I am sharing with you the simple Fall decor I added to our kitchen.

I have always loved the way the Fall colors look in this house. Maybe is just me and the fact that I love Fall.
I did start by putting together a simple vignette on the island.

 I used a very large handmade basket to which I added some Fall items I already had from previous years.

And I also added a few pumpkins to the pot rack just for fun.

The breakfast area is pretty simple also.
I used some of the placemats I made last year and decorated the old wood box that my son made for me with some Fall picks and a few candles.

On the window seat I added the old recipe pillow I made years ago and a few Fall flowers and candles.

And when I thought I was done, I found online this beautiful free watercolor printable by Lisa at Maybe She Made It,
and decided to frame it and add it to my small side table.

 And that is all the Fall decor I have added to my kitchen.
Simple, I know, but just enough to bring the colors of Fall in our home.

I just added a few Fall touches to our porch, so I will be sharing that soon.
 Once again, I want to thank you all so much for stopping by. 
Enjoy the rest of the week!


  1. You have such a nice big kitchen to decorate for all the seasons, I love it! Your vignettes are always so pretty. Thank goodness we're getting a little break from the heat. :)

  2. This is very pretty, Maria Elena. Your vignette on the bar and those pillows are perfect!

  3. Love your fall touches in the kitchen. That picture is so cute and I love the pillow. The box your son made is so cute and your flowers, candles and leaves make it so perfect for fall!

  4. I know exactly what you mean...the seasons really do go by so fast, it is hard to get time to enjoy one's decor before it's time for the next! You've done a lovely job adding fall touches to your kitchen. I really like the display in that basket - simply but put together wonderfully.

  5. Just stumbled onto your blog. I'm a fellow Texan (Plano, north of Dallas). Can I say, I just love your kitchen cabinets. I feel like everyone is painting theirs white and I love the warmth of rich wood tones.

    1. Thank you so much, Giovanna. It is very nice to meet you! Take care, Maria

  6. Maria Elena,
    I love your touches of Autumn in the kitchen, dear friend!
    Your Trayscape on the island is adorable!
    LOVE the box and your Autumnal decor on the dining room table!
    Cute placemats!

  7. Your kitchen looks so pretty. Love your decor. Great job!

  8. Very nice, Maria Elena! My kitchen is usually the first room I decorate, but it's going to be the last this year. I love the colors of Fall, too, and just keep changing things and tweaking....oh, the life of a blogger!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
