Fall Home Tour 2015

Hello, lovely friends!

 As you all well know, fall is my very favorite season to decorate. I love everything about fall! The colors, the change in the weather, sweaters, a warm mug of tea, leaves changing colors, the smell of bonfires, rainy weather, the list could go on and on...

The living room ~

The colors in my living room compliment all of my fall decor. I wish I could leave these decorations up all year! 

Even though I still like to decorate after having children it looks a lot different now, with most of my decor up where little hands can't get to it and toys usually strewn around the living room.

My simple grapevine wreath with raffia bow is one of my favorites that I've ever thrown together

I bought the little pumpkins in the candle holder at The Farmgirl Flea event that I went to a month or so ago. A link to their Facebook page for their spring event can be found here. Almost everything is else is from my fall stash.

I pull out the leaf, pumpkin, and berry runner every year. I only wish that I had bought more when Michael's clearanced them all out years ago.

My big lanterns were a purchase with my birthday money. I always buy something fallish for my birthday! It works out well having a late August birthday.

My chippy "new" stool from the flea market. A great find for $5!

I don't have a lot of room on my couch these days for my throw pillows so placing them in a basket until I can use them again works perfectly for this season of my life right now.

One last look at my freshly swept hearth. We sadly never use our fireplace. Maybe when the girls are older...I sweep it out once a year, usually in October so it gets pretty dusty and cobwebby this time of year. I could probably leave it, it kind of fits in with the season (ha-ha).

My old piano ~ One day it will be painted white and I will get the keys fixed and get it tuned. Until then, it is what it is.

I bring out the same pieces year after year and just try to put them in new places.

I rarely take photos of this side of the living room. We really need a sturdy TV stand that's not an old wash stand. As beautiful as the piece is, it's too rickety and all the cords from the tv and blu-ray player are so unsightly. I would love a small but sturdy dresser or a repurposed pallet TV stand. A girl must always have her dreams...

The Dining room & buffet

I made the leaf swag last year for my mantel. You can see my 2014 fall home tour here and my tutorial here.

My Grandma just gave me this bowl a few months ago. I'm so glad I found a use for it, filled with acorns and pinecones scented like cinnamon. The house smells lovely this time of year!

I plan on putting chicken wire behind this window piece. I want to hang photos or old postcards on the wire with mini clothes pins.

I hope you enjoyed my little home tour. I love making my home as cozy as I can. My style isn't for everyone but I do love it for my family and me.


Speaking of family ~Here are a few photos of our family from this fall!

Decorating our front stoop & going for a nature walk around our neighborhood.

We went to a corn maze, hayride, and had cider and donuts with our church family ~ What a fun day!

Carving her pumpkin was very exciting for this little girl!

Our little Tigger & Pooh Bear flower ~ Dressing up and Trick or Treating was such fun now that Livy is getting older and knows about the joys of  getting candy!

Have a happy and wonderful Thanksgiving dear friends!

Your fall home tour is wonderful, Jamie. Everything is so cozy and warm. I love seeing your family photos, too. They take me back to all the fun times when my own were little. I'm glad you have your pretty home and family times documented on your blog. It all goes by so fast! Enjoy every single moment.
