Autumn in Vermont Home Tour w/ Simon Pearce Cheddar Cheese Soup Recipe!

“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.”

~Oscar Wilde

Welcome to our Autumn in Vermont home tour! I think fall is my favorite time of the year. I luv the crisp air, warm sweaters, cozy decor, outdoor colors, and activities. Vermont is filled with leaf peepers from all over the world enjoying the fall colors, October brew festivals, hiking, music festivals, art festivals, etc.. You may even meet an Appalachian Trail hiker on their last leg to Mt. Katahdin in Maine, while they stop here to regroup.

So please, grab a cup of coffee, hot cider or a hot toddy and enjoy our Autumn in Vermont home tour, and be sure to try out the Vermont Cheddar Cheese Soup recipe at the end of this tour that our own favorite Simon Pearce serves up at their amazing restaurant and glass blowing workshop in Quechee, VT. An absolute must visit when traveling thru the Green Mountains of Vermont any time of the year!!

This year I decided I wanted to stay within a neutral color theme. I found about two dozen of these little white pumpkins and gave them a coat of bright white paint and scattered them throughout our built-in shelves in our main living area.

The glass vase filled with Scrabble letters is hand blown at our Vermont based Simon Pearce! If you have a luv of hand blown glass I highly recommend a visit, you will not be disappointed!!

Our home is adorned with Built-In Shelving. Therefore, this is where much of my fall decor lies. White Pumpkins and rust faux leaves from a local nursery for this #Shelfie

I have shared on the blog my top 10 ideas for great #shelfies Click here for your FREE Printable. And here is where I incorporated tip #1 the personal touches, with the pumpkin painting on the top shelf created by my dear friend Theresa, flowers given to me by my neighbor from her flower garden and displayed in an antique grub pot.

The vintage books are part of a complete collection of The Hardy Boys that I scored at a local antique store!

I added small battery lights to an old wicker pumpkin I have had for years to add ambiance in the evenings.

Here I added pine cones for texture in a pottery barn basket, flowers from our very small flower garden and white candles to match the white pumpkins. Now to get my husband to rethink those speakers!!.. #reallife

Aging hydrangeas from the yard in a white vase, a slate cheese slab with Vermont Cabot Cheese, our favorite... I luv their seriously sharp cheddar!

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I found this cheese slate at The Dancing Ewe, an amazing farm to table Italian affair in upstate NY.

Vintage needlepoint pillows I found at our local consignment shop along with our 6-month-old Bernese Mountain Dog, Ella! All the coziness of home! I always feel like vintage pillows add so much warmth in the fall and winter months.

Breakfast in bed with toasted Vermont Cider Donuts, Green Mountain Blueberry Coffee and Antique Candle Co "Clean Cotton" candle.

A vintage coat rack with a Bermuda basket filled with hydrangeas and pinecones from the yard add a touch of fall to the bedroom too.

It's so fun to decorate with vintage books. Sometimes simplicity is the best way to go. For more vintage book decor you can check out 10 Fun Ideas for Decorating with Vintage Books.

A console table behind our couch decorated with burlap, pumpkins, candles, pinecones, and hydrangeas.

How cute is this little spring I found antiquing for $3.00? It works perfectly on the table with the little white pumpkins.

I would now luv to invite you to join our table for lunch, serving up Simon Pearce Vermont Cheddar Cheese Soup!

I luv decorating with vintage amber glasses. These were my mothers.

Handmade pumpkins in wooden salad bowls. (I shared this simple DIY in my Instagram stories saved in my DIY highlights)

Lenox China were wedding gifts.

Chargers and placemats are from Pier 1 Imports.

Sterling silverware was a wedding gift to my parents from the 1940's.
