Hi and thanks for stopping in today for my fall home tour. If you are visiting from Darrielle's beautiful blog, D.D.'s Cottage and Design, welcome, I'm so glad you're here! Brenda from Cozy Little House put together this tour of 28 fabulous homes decorated for fall, and I'm thrilled to be a part of it.
When Brenda invited me to participate in the tour, I was a bit hesitant at first because of the kitchen reno we're in the middle of, but I knew that it would give me a chance to make a room in my house look pretty again, if only for a moment. So I accepted her kind invitation, moved all the tools and other construction junk into different corners of the house, and pulled my fall decor out. I'm happy to tell you that I was able to make my living room and foyer look like fall for a few days (at the expense of my other rooms), and it was nice to have a pretty room again.
One of my favorite things is my front door basket. You can see how easy this was to make here.
I find that I'm always changing things around in the entryway. We have a lot going on in this small space and it can be a challenge for me to decorate.
For my fall decor this year, I went with what I love...simple, with lots of natural elements.
I've been able to squeeze in a few fall crafts, between working on the kitchen, and I'll be posting them soon. One of the crafts that I did was to add some leaves on the old window that I propped up on the cabinet. I bought this old, chippy window months ago to hang in the kitchen, but I've since found something else. I brought it in from the garage and it just sat, propped up against the wall, so I stuck it up here for now until I can figure out what to do with it.
I won the velvet pumpkins a couple of years ago from a favorite blog, and I love getting them out every year. Check out that awesome stem!
I picked up a few mums and an ornamental pepper plant for the front stoop but I've not done anything else to the porch. Summer temps have returned this week and I hope that they make it through. We have a long way to go until Halloween.
It was fun decorating my living room for the tour and it was nice to have a room all clean and spiffy, but, I have to admit, I'm still not ready to let go of summer.
Thanks so much for visiting and touring my fall
home room, I'm so glad that you stopped in. Next year all of our construction mess will be cleaned up and long forgotten (hopefully) and I'll be able to share my new kitchen decorated for fall. Speaking of the kitchen, I'm hoping to have an update Friday on our new countertops. They're in and I'm so excited to show them to you!
The next stop on the tour is Linda from Itsy Bits and Pieces, and you don't want to miss her beautiful vintage style.
Check out all of the other fall homes on the tour. Here's the full lineup for the rest of the week.
