I get very excited when it’s time to pull my favourite fall pretties out of storage.… I truly love decorating for this season!
For anyone who is new here, I probably should explain……
Even though September is the start of spring here in Australia, I actually decorate for fall… yeah, I know it’s kind of crazy!
Here in the northern part of Australia, we live in a sub-tropical climate, so we don’t experience the four seasons. Our Autumn months are March, April and May, however, it is still very warm here during that time and we slowly descend from there into a very mild winter season.
Having previously lived in a part of Australia that does experience the seasonal changes, I miss the beauty and cosiness of Autumn.
For many years I joined in with my fellow bloggers for fall home tours and so decorating for fall prior to transcending into Christmas became our ‘norm’. While I no longer do the blog home tours, I still enjoy decorating for fall…. which brings me to today’s post.
Each year I centre my decorating around a soft and shabby fall colour palette.
There has been soft greens, a year of mauves and blues and another of white and pink.
This year I’m keeping it simple and shabby with a colour palette of faded linen, soft pink, blush and burgundy.
I reworked some older projects that have been popular and are still some of my favourites.
And I totally love them in the soft pink gingham and floral colour combo!
Faux Patchwork Pumpkin Coasters
You might remember my quick and easy faux patchwork pumpkin coasters.
I added two more pumpkin shapes for this year and have created a pattern sheet to use with this tutorial.

Fabric Pumpkin Trio
Using the same pretty fabrics, I made myself a new pumpkin trio set as well.
I have this pumpkin set in several different colour ways, but I think this is definitely my new favourite.
Doesn’t it just look so sweet and romantic ♥
This little trio of pumpkins are perfect for tucking into fall vignettes and you can vary the fabrics to fit with any colour palette.
For this set I also attached a vintage crochet doily to the largest pumpkin and love the texture it adds to the trio.
You’ll find my easy tutorial for making my fabric pumpkin trio HERE.
I’ve nearly finished gathering my fall supplies and look forward to decorating my studio this weekend.
I can’t wait to share the other projects with you.

Your coasters are just beautiful. I admire your creativity and cratmanship. I love the shabby pink and white colors you shoose and the doilies! I have downloaded the pumpkin trio tutorial in hopes I can make it in the winter time. I just adore your “girly, feminine” crafts.
