Happy Fall Y’all!! 2020 Fall Home Tour

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.

Here’s a close up of our fireplace mantle.
Fall pillows and a cozy throw on the couch, pumpkins and fall flowers on the coffee table.
Here is our side table in the living room.
Here is another view of the living room.

We also have fall pillows and a throw made from my dad’s T-shirts on our family room sofa.

A fall throw and comfy pillows make our family room cute and cozy.
The family room coffee table also includes this adorable fall vignette with a lantern, vase of fall flowers and acorns.

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.

Daisy is trying to blend in and appear part of the decor.
She is pretty enough to be decorative.
Our sidebar has a little fall treatment too.

I hope you have a blessed day, and I will see you again this Friday for a post from a special guest.

Have a wonderful day!!

Farmhouse Friday: Farmhouse Finds at Tractor Supply

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

Red Shed Farmhouse Bench, $159.99

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

RedShed 5 foot windmill, $79.99

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

RedShed White Star with Rooster Design, 39.99

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

RedShed green lantern 17.99

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.

5.

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!!!!

Free summer printables

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.

You all know how much I love quotes!!
Very, very true!!
It surely is!!

To download, just right click on the printable and save it to your device.

Enjoy!!!

Shop Your House: Don’t buy new, repurpose instead

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.

5 Spring Wreaths You Can Make Yourself

I love having a pretty wreath on my door. Sometimes I buy wreaths from a friend at church who makes beautiful wreaths, but sometimes when I have a little more time, I make simple wreaths myself. I am going to share a few of my own creations but also a few from around the Internet. Enjoy!!

1. Simple hydrangea wreath

I made this one a few years ago from an oval wreath and some very realistic hydrangeas.

2. Painted letter wreath

You know how much I love monograms!! I made this one entirely from materials I had on hand.
