Fall Fluffing- Warming up the Sun porch

So practically moments after I wrote in my last post that I was going to hold onto summer as long as I could, I went ahead and started changing things up out on the sun porch.
The weather's been getting chilly around here, so it needed to be warmed up if I was going to keep spending time out there! So I went and changed out the curtains, swapped out some throw pillows and accessories, and added a whole bunch of throw blankets!
Without further ado...

Don't you think that little bit of fur on the chair makes it so much cozier? (Thanks Toby! :)

I brought out some velvet and micro-fiber floor pillows in warm colors. A slice of apple wood that I'm waiting to dry out so I can make something with it adds nice texture to the foot stool. A large copper bowl from India hold a candle that makes the bowl glow when it is lit.


Extra candles, of course! And I imagine Hubby and myself sitting down to an impromptu game of backgammon after work, drink in hand... I suppose that would be much more likely to happen if I actually looked up how to play it! (I knew how to play when I was, like, 10- why can't I remember?!)


And while it's very difficult to see in the photograph, I brought in some more of the dried Queen Anne's Lace that I used on the mantle to use out here as well.

So that's my Fall Fluff of the Sun porch!


Now if only Toby would stay in place!
