Happy Fall Y’all!
I am so very excited to be taking part in a wonderful blog hop tour of Fall. Today will be fun! Partnering with 7 other bloggers – you are sure to find some serious inspiration. I am thrilled to introduce you to these very talented ladies who have quickly become my friends thanks to this year’s Haven Conference.
You will be seeing a lot more from this awesome bunch as the holidays approach. We have several “No Place Like Home” gatherings planned!
Welcome to Our Home!
I love to decorate for fall – usually it is 90 degrees with a heat index of 105… pulling out the throws,candles, and fall wreaths just make me happy and hopeful for cooler weather. 🙂
Well, come on in!
The Foyer ~
The three pumpkins looked so cute on the stairs and begged to be a little more… add a little gold and voila! Happy Greetings!
The Dining Room~
I love having a dining room and use it every chance we get. The chairs are comfy and it is easy to spend time visiting and enjoying the company of friends and family. I wanted to do something a little different this year with the fall decor and started out with the traditional runner. After setting the table I just wasn’t thrilled. It was pretty but not exactly what I was thinking. As I was staring at the table I remember a beautiful plaid scarf buried in my closet. I grabbed it, threw it on the table and it was perfect!
I am in love with the blue metallic chargers. They used to be silver and I took a chance and painted them… so glad I did! The china is our “wedding china” and I use it every chance possible. The little pumpkins started out as orange picks.
The Formal ~
Our formal living room is where we visit, read and listen to music. It is honestly one of my favorite spots in the house. I love playing a great record and sinking into a comfy chair. We have had such great conversations in this room with family and friends. World problems are solved here…
I have a confession… I tend to buy a hodge podge of clearance candlestick holders. I finally decided to throw caution to the wind and paint them! I’m beyond happy with the eclectic mix happening here.
The Breakfast Nook~
The decor for this little area came from a deep hurt that we have been dealing with. Our son has been going through a tough time with a bully at school. The bully has been relentless. Our son is learning how to deal with unprovoked meanness. Thankfully solutions are in the works but as our son has come to realize- meanness is a matter of the heart. This is where the decor idea comes in… The Giving Tree. I grabbed branches, a vase and some leaves and made a new tradition. Everyday, we write a positive word, something to give thanks for.
Amazing how purposely finding the good everyday makes the not so good tolerable.
See the little cute cow? I needed a place to corral the dry erase markers and this little butter dish works great!
The Family Room~
This comfy area is a perfect place to watch the ol’ tv. I added a little “Fall” with pillows here and the cutest fox figurine I found at Hobby Lobby.
Aww, my Ricky Bobby, posing for the camera… 🙂
And… that will do it friends! Thank you for stopping by for my fall home tour! It was fun having you here and showing you our home. Let’s continue the party!
