Fall Decorating Part 2 ~ Living Room

My living room has very simple changes that make it feel a little more seasonal.  

Using natural things is mostly how I decorate.  

I like a mixture of vintage, organic, farmhouse, and anything pretty ~ that's what makes me happy :)


My color palette in the living room was inspired by the Dogwood Tree....whites, greens and browns.

Our fireplace was so ugly when we moved in.  Dino and I chipped it down to these bricks the first week.  We had intended to refinish it but I sort of liked it this way. 

I did not get as many hydrangea's as I would have liked this year thanks to the deer snacking on them all summer.

Brown transferware is my favorite color ....especially any with a little bird or two (or three!).

This chair was a Christmas present from Dino one year. I love the cherries on it's pressed back ~ so different!

My mom hates these pillows, but they reminded me of lettuce so too bad mom :) 

Another pretty pillow from Home Goods.  I have a problem love with pillows.

  My knitting chair ~ someday I will finish that shawl on top of the basket.

This is an old watercolor painting I found for $3.00.  See the little sheep? I want to live there.

I actually made myself something this year ~ brown pumpkins from old velvet.  Don't you just love the stem on the left? 

 Some things just make me so happy.  Doesn't this look just like a nesting goose.  A treasure!

I hope you enjoyed my house.  Have a great day and thank you always for visiting.

Fall Decorating Part 1 ~ Dining Room

Since I had a little time before Lydia's party AND the house was clean, I took a few pictures of my house decorated for Fall.
I didn't have time to decorate much, but just a little makes all the difference to me.

My dining room is decorated in blues, whites, and pewters. 


It's one of the happiest rooms in my house.  I think because we always have so many family gatherings here.  

I hope you enjoyed these.  I'll post my living room in the next few days.  Have a great day and thank you!!

Mom to a teenager ...when did that happen?

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  We sure did!  My daughter's birthday was Saturday so we surprised her on Friday by taking her to "Fright Night" at a local amusement park.  It was great!  We all had the best time.

On her birthday we had a nice family party with a requested donut cake.  Easiest cake I ever made!  
She had just blown out the candles, when we turned on the lights, a donut was already in her mouth!!
Next week will be the big birthday sleepover....stay tuned, oh boy!
At another sleepover with one of her best friends "Marley".  She loves her so much!
 See ya tomorrow with a few pictures of fall decorating around the house!
