Bristol @ Cottage by the River

Allison- It is always so nice to come home. Your fall decoarations look great. I love that cabinet from your grandparents farm. We have so many things floating around my family that were on my great grandparents farm. I am lucky to have a couple. I hope that you have great week. I have one of those busy work weeks coming up!


Cute Halloween decos, Allie. I don't decorate for Fall, but do it up big for Christmas, but I enjoy seeing what others are up to.



Its great to have you back! And, you have more fall goodies to share! Love them!

I can't wait until this hot weather passes & we can really get into fall---hot cider & fires in the fireplace...I know that they are around the corner!!


I think your decorations look always! You do such a wonderful job with that!
And i TOTALLY is soo nice to be home and enjoying the season!!! :)


Oh Allie I love all the wonderful fall decor!!


Love all your beautiful decor.


Allison - Glad you got home safely! I like all your new fall touches and fun things you found in California. I really like the pumpkinhead man and the dog sketches.....too cute!

Have a wonderful week! Sharon

Hi Allie,
Welcome Back! Love all your fall decorating. And that cabinet is very special!

Wow, everything looks so beautiful!!! Love how you have decorated.


Your decorations are just beautiful! I love that cabinet. It's hot here in PA right now. Today's high is supposed to be 90! For October? In PA? That's just not right. I'm totally jealous!



Allison- I love it all and the idea with the keys is inspired. I'm so copying you girl! I really love your dog pictures too. I would not have been able to resist them and that apron, well I think you know how I feel about that!

I'm glad you are back home and settling into autumn. It looks like the weather will be changing this week. I can't wait. Jen

I love all your fall decor. I know what you mean about not wanting to miss the fall. I grew up in Michigan and fall is just spectacular. I really miss it being out here in California. I really miss the Cider Mill!! I would kill for a dozen of those donuts!!!!


Welcome back! I love all of your Fall decor. You truly have a wonderful gift and way of putting things together.


I love all the goodies you brought home. Although I am new to your blog... I am loving all your decorating themes. Very unique and beautiful as well.
Happy Fall!


I am a new reader and am throughly enjoying your blog. These autumn decorations are great and I adore your apron- so cute!


Allison, it was worth the wait to see more of your seasonal decorating. You have a real knack for putting your finds and treasures together. Love your style which definitely creates a cozy and beautiful home and also your sincere way of writing.


Glad you had a good trip. It's nice when you get back home though.
I love all of your decorations!! How nice that you have that great cabinet that was on the farm.
Can't wait to see more stuff you got in California.
Enjoy the Fall!!!


A Halloween TREE! I'm jumping up and down right now, what a great idea! Wonder if I could spray paint my old Christmas tree? :) I'm glad you are enjoying a real fall, it is so hot here in the south, we cant tell that summer ended.


Glad to hear you had a good trip - love that cabinet btw!

Mary Isabella

Very nice decorations. plese come by for a cup of apple cider at Dasiy Bouquet Mary


Hi Allie - glad you're back safe and sound - you were missed. Love all your decorating for Fall/Halloween - that's a great cupboard. I'm done for Fall but holding off on the Halloween stuff until I get back from England - leave next Monday, back Oct. 28 so will have few days to put the Halloween stuff out before the trick or treaters arrive!!
Have a restful week after all the traveling!!


Visiting via Daisy Cottage, love your posts. Your Halloween Tree is really cute, love your idea of the keys. Just wanted to say it's a small world...your back from a California business trip (use to live in CA) and you live in Minnesota. Hubby from Minnesota, travel there lots and lots. Just thought it a very small world indeed. Love your blog.
