My Autumn Wish List


My favorite season has arrived!  Yay!  Welcome, fall, welcome!! And along with it the desire to bring additional warmth and coziness into our home.  Time to buy fresh candles, bake apple pie, stock up on pumpkin puree and snuggle away the chilly mornings and evenings with my boys (when they let me).

I love earth tones, especially creams, browns and black (not sure black is exactly an earth tone... but...)  The majority of my wardrobe is made up of those colors too. They aren't always the most spring + summery of hues but they are oh so fitting for this for time of year!  Below is a growing wish list of items I'd love to add to our house (and closet) this season...

I saw these Autumn Harvest Plates from Juliska (link) when an Instagram friend posted them on her feed.  I've been staring at them ever since.  I must make them mine.  
I slept on it and still love them just as much this morning.  Wait, no, I love them more.  
That's the test, right?  

and they would be so perfect paired with these pewter plates (also from Juliska)

add these napkins from Everyday Occasions and I'm ready to host a fall dinner party!

This Lisa Fine fabric is on its way to our home to make some new living room pillows.

I keep scouring flea markets and antique malls in the hope to find one of these in good condition.

I'm working on adding a little homework/planning corner to the playroom.  This chair would be perfect in there.  Chair from Ikea, slipcover from Bemz.

Cozy (washable) wool throws found from Mexchic on etsy.  These are a great price too.

And lastly, a pair of light colored boots.  
These Frye boots are too pricey for me but I love the color and style!

  1. Love everything... looking into carrying those throws in my store! I need to hire you as a buyer. Seriously. No really, seriously - interested?! And because I feel like you'll know - where can I find preserved boxwood wreaths and/topiaries? Thinking holiday collection already...

    Here is the link to the napkins you shared - just in case blogger won't let you update.

  2. Great list, Tessa! I am a fall person too, whether it's the actual season or the colors I wear & use in my home. Also, this is completely off-topic, but I loved your post on your trip to Boston & Cape Cod. That was the last girls trip my mom, sister, & I took before my mom unexpectedly passed away 2 years ago. Your post brought back great memories, a few tears, & a desire to take my own little family back to New England's coast to share it with them. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  3. Nice fall selections! Think of the boots as an investment. They'll last a long time and over several years, the cost won't be too much! Love those wool throws. I have a thing about throws and blankets. I have to exercise restraint when it comes to certain things or else I'd have a bunch of them.

  4. Fall is my all time favorite season. The chilly days, sweaters, not too hot and not too cold just perfect. I just absolutely love everything on your autumn wish list. The plates... wonderful, fabric... need, and the boots I'm on the hunt. .

  6. Tessa,
    You'll have to make a trip out to Connecticut for one of Juliska's semi-annual tent sales. The prices are truly unbelievable! At their sale a few weeks ago I got a place setting for eight in the Country Estate pattern (Flint color) for under $175 - over 90% off the original price. I'm still dying over it...
