Transitioning From Summer To Fall Blog Hop/Sunflowers, Apples and Pears

Welcome the the Transitioning from Summer to Fall Blog Hop.
I love pumpkins but there is no need to rush things. October will be here soon enough.
There will be plenty of pumpkins next month. I love decorating for the short time period in between summer and fall.
My blogging friends do too. I want to give a shout out to Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home for putting this blog hop together.
Her hops are always amazing and her is home is adorable. I can't wait to see what she shares.
If you are coming from Carol at Art and Sand, welcome. I love Carol's coastal cottage.
Those warm tone florals are gorgeous.

September was all about apples when I was teaching and I amassed a lot of fun apple collectables over the years.

I gave many of them away when I quit teaching but there are still a few treasured keepsakes that come out during late summer.
I love pulling out my late summer/early fall bins.

A Dollar Tree truck was repainted to hold apples instead of pumpkins.
I discovered the secret to perfect lettering on YouTube. I'll share it with you soon.

There are plenty of fun motifs to display until it is time for pumpkins, gourds, and scarecrows.

Sunflowers are a favorite of mine.

Vintage Japanese chickens and roosters add a fall farm vibe.

 The lavender and sunflowers sprinkled about have brought me joy during our great flooring escapade.

This black and white gingham sunflower is repurposed from a burlap one that had seen better days.

Pears are also a favorite this time of year.

I added a new honey pot to my collection. I love the color on this one.

My favorite display is this Farm Fresh planter. It came from the Raz Import Warehouse Sale.  It's adorable. The fairy lights are a fun addition.
That is it for now.
Be sure to stop by Calypso In The Country to see how she adds some different elements for fall.

  1. Beautiful! - I love all your colorful vignettes for early fall. You have so many pretty pieces in your collection. Great hopping with you again!

  2. Katie great fall touches. I fell in love with the round apple artwork on the stand immediately. Red transferware is a favorite. Pretty rooster towel as well.


  3. I loved all your decorating to welcome fall. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  4. Love all the colorful vignettes you have layered around the house for Fall, Katie. From the apples to the sunflowers to the pears they offer such fun pops of color. I'm excited to hear about your lettering tips too! Hugs, CoCo

  5. Such pretty fall vignettes and I love that little truck, such a favorite.

  6. Now you have me wondering what happened to my apple collection. I had some really fun pieces and can remember where I put them.

    I love the pillows on your sofa. I'm waiting for a part for my sewing machine, but I might just go with some bold florals for fall. Thanks for the inspiration.

  7. Love every single nook and cranny of your fall decor Katie! Your apple collection is fun and different. And I love different! Enjoy the rest of summer.

  8. floral pillows, sunflowers, chickens, apples. I love it all Katie, so glad the flooring escapade is behind you so you can have fun this Fall! xoxo

  9. I get giddy when September rolls around. Fall to spring are my favorite seasons. I love all three & just endure summer.

    I love the apple theme & especially love the green beehive.

  10. I love your early fall decor, Katie...apples and sunflowers are perfect for September...so pretty!

  11. Katie, love what you did to the DT truck and changing it from pumpkins to apples! The pears are a nice element for this time of year too. Mixing purple (lavender) and yellow gold (sunflowers) is a very appealing color mix for me. And yes, that little truck planter is super cute. Little lights ramp up the decor factor is everything! Happy September!

  12. I thought you might be sharing your checks and DOllar Tree re-do pieces, which I love. Truth is, Katie, I love it all. How lovely to be reclaiming your newly revamped home and starting with the beautiful season of fall!

  13. I always love visiting your home Katie. You have such wonderful early fall touches. I also had read your FB posting. Please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your dear mother. May your lovely memories of her bring you comfort during this difficult time.

  14. Katie,
    Apples are Fall, aren't they? Fall is the season to harvest them, and apples are symbolic with back-to-school days for me. I, too, saw your FB post about losing your mother. You are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.


  15. I love all your late summer/early Fall vignettes, Katie!

  16. Oh how adorable all of this is! I have a few roosters and chickens I am using in the kitchen for farmhouse fall too. I love how you have them clucking around here and there among your pretty treasures. The rooster and sunflower tea towel is so cute. I also love the lavender, sunflower and eucalyptus in the red transferware. My favorite has to be the sunflower pillow mixed with the red florals and ticking pillows. So cottagey!

    Thank you so much for joining the hop. Happy summer-to-fall time!

  17. Your home is so gorgeous with all your summer-to-fall touches! I love how you used sunflowers, apples and pears throughout. I love all your chickens, and I have a few myself (both decor and real ones!). So happy to be hopping with you!

  18. Love the black and white accents with bright sunflowers. Such a happy combination for fall. Of course the truck with the black and white checked sunflower has to be my favorite! Happy September Katie!

  19. I love that Farm Fresh display, too, Katie! Everything looks perfect for easing into fall. I had never thought about how many apples a teacher might collect over the years! I think I'll avoid gifting apples to my kids' teachers. Ha ha. Love all the vignettes!

  20. Katie, perfect touches of fall! I do love sunflowers, apples, and pears. Your redo of the farm truck is really cute. Also, you've got some really neat chickens.

  21. Katie, you have such a wonderful collection of items that work so well for this transitional time. The truck is so cute. I’d love to see how you learned about printing. Love how each vignette has its own personality.

  22. Katie I am loving all your touches you added to your home. I am in love with your re-purposed décor pieces.

  23. I love your early fall touches in your home. I really love how striking the lavender and sunflower vignette is. Happy early fall!

  24. It's just the right amount to say that fall is coming. The Applegate Farms truck is adorable, and I love the sunflowers and lavender combo.

  25. Your rooster towel is the cutest! I, too, love farm things this time of the year, probably because it's harvest time. The warm, late summer early fall sunshine fits perfectly with the colors you've used; love the gold, red, black and mossy greens together! Fun to see all your vintage finds, Katie!

  26. Don't you just git giddy at pulling out those fall bins. I just adore the season. You've got some wonderful treasures. I'm smitten with that white truck!

  27. Sunflowers, apples and pears are all little signs that one season is coming to an end and another will soon be arriving. I love how you have incorporated a ll of these throughout your home!
