Around The House {fall edition}

I've been so inspired this week by ALL the Fall Home Tours on some of my favorite blogs {check it out herehere, and here}. The little wheels in my brain started turning, how can I bring Fall into our home for practically free? For me, this means heading outside and bringing in all the beautiful treasures in the woods and pastures. There's plenty of sunflowers, corn and corn stalks, wheat grass, muscadine vines, and so much more. And guess what? It's all free! Now that's decorating on the cheap!

{I brought my pine-cone garland back up from the basement and decided to use it outside this year}

We are blessed to live in a house surrounded by pastures and lots of woods, so I have tons of wild things to choose from, but if you don't, head to the park {I've done that too lots of times}. We don't pick anything but fallen acorns and pine-cones are favorite treasures of mine. I brought back out our brown sofa slipcover, added some seasonal afghans and woolly throws for those chilly evenings, and, of course, threw in lots of candles. LOVE lighting candles in Fall and Winter!

I totally copied borrowed some ideas from other bloggers, hey, it's meant to inspire, right? 

I must say, I had so much fun Fallin' up the house both inside and out! Thank y'all so much for dropping by for our Fall Home Tour. Have a blessed weekend y'all!

  1. What fun! Thanks! Now...what shall I do around here?

  2. soooo gorgeous!!!! Can I ask what paint color you have in the kitchen nook??

    1. Hello Christine! I'm afraid it's a very generic paint brand from our local home improvement store {Lowe's} and it's called Graphite. That was one of the first areas we painted and shortly after that I fell in love with BM paints and use them exclusively whether I'm painting walls or furniture. Love BM! Thank you so much for your sweet comment and have a blessed weekend!

  3. Hi Amy :)

    I'm afraid I'm behind again in my reading, but I'm here now ;)

    Your home is such an absolute delight and I love every nook and cranny. The Fall touches are perfect.


  4. Oh and I forgot to mention... that picture of your baby on the chair is adorable! You should frame it, if you haven't already ;)

    1. I swear Rue, I think of you every time I post a pic of one of my fur-babies! I love seeing yours over at your place! Thanks for taking the time to visit!


When y'all leave comments, my heart just swells! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
