I know it isn’t quite fall yet; it won’t be fall until the 22nd. However, after the year we have had, I am into doing whatever brings me joy these days. Fall decorating brings me joy- our home is the most beautiful to me when it’s decorated for fall and Christmas. So I decided to decorate early…and I am so glad I did it.
I’m not going to show you every single room in our home, nor am I going to show you every fall decor item. Consider this our highlight reel.
Our living room is one of my favorite rooms to decorate, now that we built the fireplace. I love the orange pillows against the navy plaid chairs. We topped our mantle off with a fall garland, pumpkins, simple white candlesticks and candles, and a fall wreath from my family.
We also have fall pillows and a throw made from my dad’s T-shirts on our family room sofa.
Our two bathrooms have these pipe shelves, and we have decorated both of them for fall.
Our kitchen, which is under renovation, has a tiny bit of fall decor as well. This pitcher belonged to my great grandmother and I bet she’d love to know I am using it.
Lastly, our dining room is particularly lovely this time of year. My favorite things in the room are this fall runner I bought last year and a set of pretty placemats my grandmother gave me.
I hope you have a blessed day, and I will see you again this Friday for a post from a special guest.
Hi, all! We are glad to be back after taking two weeks off of blogging. I am having a hard time finding things to write about, since we are still largely unable to go anywhere or do much. I am planning to resume a regular blogging schedule next week.
Today I want to resume farmhouse Friday by sharing some super cute home decor items at Tractor Supply. If you have never checked out their home decor section, I highly recommend you do so!
1. RedShed Farmhouse Bench
This super cute little farmhouse bench is reasonably priced and it would look cute on your front porch or in your entry way.
2. Farmhouse yard windmill
I have wanted a windmill since forever!! This would look great in my side yard. I know it doesn’t really do anything but it looks really cool.
3. White barn star
These stars look so cute hanging on the wall and you can hang up a bunch of them or just a few! They have some other colors as well.
4. RedShed Green Lantern
How cute would this look on a shelf, or maybe get three of them and put them in a wood box? These little lanterns would be so cute in so many different ways.
Im always a sucker for metal and wood signs and this one is very cute.
There are way more cute things to choose from! I recommend taking a trip to your local store and seeing for yourself. Thanks for reading!!!!
Hi, all! We took a few weeks off because we were struggling to produce new content due to the pandemic. We decided to take a break and that breather was just what we needed.
If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know I love to make free printables for each season. I realized this week that I have not created any summer printables for you guys. I created three simple prints with quotes about summer. Feel free to download and enjoy for your personal use only. These are not to be used commercially. For best results, print no larger than 8×10.
To download, just right click on the printable and save it to your device.
Have you ever had something in your house that you love, but due to its age, it doesn’t look as good as it used to? Or maybe it’s not something that doesn’t look usable anymore but you can’t bring yourself to get rid of it.
At our wedding eleven years ago, we lined the sidewalk of our reception hall with lanterns hanging from shepherd’s hooks.
I have about four of these sitting in my garage right now.
It’s faded. There’s candle wax melted in the bottom of it. It doesn’t look so hot. But you all know about my love of spray paint.
I covered the glass with painter’s tape and got to work. I put two coats on my cute little lanterns.
I let them dry for about 24 hours. The finished project looks pretty great. Next week, I will show you how they turned out, and where I am using them.
I debated on even posting my spring tour this year. As is the case with many of you, we are self quarantining for our own safety. Typically, I’d decorate for spring and run out and buy whatever I thought I needed to complete the home tour. This year I’ve had to get creative since we can’t pop into Hobby Lobby and grab whatever. My spring tour isn’t nearly as elaborate or well executed as usual, but because I want to be real with my readers, I’m sharing it anyway.
Welcome to our front porch! Come on in- notice that pretty wreath in our door and the little round sign hanging on the right. They were both made by sweet friends at church. The planter is actually a window box from Lowe’s and it’s planted with red geraniums that haven’t bloomed yet. The door mats are from Urban Outfitters and the Welcome sign was a Hobby Lobby find.
This sofa table sits inside our front door. We kept it simple with this spring vignette.
Our fireplace mantle is simple and spring like with potted moss topiaries and white wooden candlesticks. I added a boxwood wreath and another nest. The coffee table got a small vignette as well.
Next, we have this simple table centerpiece in our dining room and this scale and nest on our sideboard.
And lastly, our two bathrooms got a little spring treatment on the shelves.
Well, I hope you enjoyed our spring home tour, even if it is a bit subpar this year. Have a wonderful week, and we will see you again Saturday for a really cool kids’ craft.
