Add Fall Color Naturally

For a quick and colorful addition to your fall decor, try adding some pressed leaves to whatever you have around the house.

I've been pressing leaves for a few years now and have amassed a pretty good collection.

Every fall, I enjoy finding new ways to incorporate pressed leaves into my fall vignettes. I added some pretties to vintage jars that are nestled in a handmade, antique tool caddy. Situated on the window seat of a south-facing window, the leaves capture the light and take on a warm, fall glow.

A couple of bunches of fresh bittersweet add texture and interest.

Our fall here is so late, the leaves haven't yet begun to turn. But, when they do, I'll once again be looking for the best pressing specimens.

Make it a great day!
