A Touch of Fall

Hi Everyone,

Are you in the mood for Fall decorating yet?
I know a lot of you have already started and I've seen
some really pretty Fall inspiration from a lot of you!

This is how our foyer looked over the spring and summer.

When I found this coat rack at Homegoods recently,
 I thought it would look great for Fall so that
was my starting point.

And this is our foyer now.

{You can see "The Blog Boss" there in the corner supervising :}

I love how the deep red looks with the light blue on the walls.
When I saw the red pears at the grocery store, I thought they
would be the perfect thing for the two pots.  I nestled them
in some spanish moss.

I already had this "Welcome" sign and I thought it went
well with everything else.

Okay, "The Boss" is giving me the "evil eye" so I guess
 I better wrap this up! 
He says you have all had enough of my "yammering"!  : )
I'm sure that's not true though, is it?

I liked how adding the scarf gave it that warm, cozy feeling
I think we all start craving this time of year!

So have you done any Fall decorating yet?
Maybe this will help put you in the mood if you 
haven't yet!!

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I love sharing these things
with you ~ believe it or not, not everyone gets as excited 
about finding the perfect color mum or the just right
 accessory as we do!!

  2. What a great post! I love your style, JoAnne. I love your foyer all gussied up for fall. I love HomeGoods too. But most of all, I love The Boss! :-D

  3. ohhh I love that rack! It is perfect for fall. Your entry is beautiful...I decorated mine yesterday and will share this evening!

    The boss is adorable!!!! My kitty never misses a photo op LOL

  4. I love the coat rack you found at Homegoods - it's very fall like. The pots with moss and red pears is so cute! What a great idea! I just started getting all my fall decor out and hope to get a lot in the next few days.

  5. Nope, I'm packing it up instead of taking it out. Be glad when I can decorate though.

  6. That is a great collection of things for that spot. I love the pots of pears! And, the scarf. I have lot's of fall posts on my blog ~ I started way early.

  7. I really like the coat rack AND the empty frame! The negative space the frame provides is often more interesting than a picture in it. andrea @ townandprairie

Many of us dream of having a beach house but when you don't live anywhere near the ocean, a house on a lake might be a more realistic possibility. Lake houses or cabins tend to be a little more rustic and cozy, I think, and there's something to be said for being surrounded by tall trees, the sounds of nature, and possibly a few critters. Here are a few lake houses I found on Houzz.   Some small, some bigger, some more rustic than others. Take a look and let me know what you think.



Home For The Holidays ~ Entry, Family Room and Kitchen

I have always loved the phrase "Home for the Holidays". Even though we are taking a short trip right before Christmas, we will be back in time to enjoy Christmas at home.

Of course, home can be wherever the people I love will be.
That's the most important thing and the most necessary ingredient.

But I don't mind if it also includes a cute little reindeer.

And a decorated mantel.

A Christmas tree, of course.

Pretty packages.

And a cozy kitchen with little bits of Christmas sprinkled around.

Christmas also includes our cute kitty with visions of sugarplums dancing
in his little head . . . or kitty treats, whichever.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
I know there are so many beautiful homes to visit right now.

Hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright!

Farmhouse Style In My Kitchen

Wow! Farmhouse style has really taken off, hasn't it? I love it just as much as many of you out there. One of the great things about it is that it's fairly easy to add  to your decor and it can be relatively inexpensive too.
Here are a few recent finds for my kitchen that I think give it a little more of that farmhouse feeling. 

Now this one is pretty obvious considering it has the word "FARM" right on it  : ) This came from a little shop I went to while we were on vacation  and it really inspired me to add a few more farmhouse style accessories.

I have admired these vintage scales forever and I finally found one on Ebay  that I thought would look great in my kitchen and was also a reasonable price. Boy, some of them are really pricey!

Any good farmhouse has to have a rooster, right? A quick little project I did was add blue grain sack stripes to this white wooden rooster. I think he is pretty proud of them!

Of course mason jars and pretty little flowers bring on th…
