Outdoor Fall Tablescape

One of my favorite things about fall is the weather.  The cooler weather always feels so nice after the scorching heat of  Summer, but yet it's not too cold to be able to enjoy the outdoors. There's also a crispness in the air and Fall just has a certain smell to it too that is all so welcoming.  

When the lovely, Alicia, from A Burst of  Beautiful invited me to join her and some other blogging friends for a fall tablescape tour, I immediately said Yes, and I knew right away that I wanted to create an outdoor fall tablescpae to enjoy the weather and smells of fall with my friends and family.

Fall Into Home Tour 2017 [Part 1]

Decorating our home for all of the changing seasons is one of my favorite things to do. That is why I got really excited when Rachel from Maison de Pax invited me to take part in the Fall Into Home Tour again this year.  There is such a lovely group of bloggers in this tour and I will be sharing the links at the end of this post so that you can go check them all out for yourself.

If you are already following along on the tour, then you should be stopping by from Finding Silver Pennies. I relate so well to Danielle's coastal style, although she is lucky enough to live by the coast, whereas I just pretend that I do :)

For today's tour I will be sharing our entryway and living room with you, and then next week I'll be back to share a few other spaces around our home that I've decorated for fall. Be sure that you are following me here, as well as on Facebook and/or Instagram so that you don't miss any of it.

Past Fall Home Tours

I'm currently putting together this year's Fall Home Tour and for inspiration and just for fun, I took a look back at how I have decorated for fall in the past.  It's interesting to see how much our home has changed in the last couple of years.  Mostly, I think I've just accumulated more "stuff" LOL :) 
My 2014 fall tour has me laughing a bit at how sparse our house looked.

Anyway, I thought these old fall tours might be fun for you too.






Stay tuned, Next week I'll be sharing my fall tour for this year.


Namaste,

Our New Front Door Color Revealed!!!

Did you catch my post on Monday?  If not, head HERE first to make your guess on which color you think I painted our front door and then come back over to see if you are right!


So what color do you think I picked?
Like I said, they are all great color choices. I actually liked All of them myself.  Perhaps I will be painting our door again in the future. But for now, I'm loving our new door color, and that color is................

What Color Do You Think I Painted Our Front Door???


You guys I just painted our front door again!!!!

You may have already heard that I was going to paint it if you follow me on Facebook and/or Instagram.  I even got a few NOOOO's which made me smile. My door color was pretty popular before and probably my most asked blog question has always been, "What color is your front door?"

But if you haven't figured it out by now, I Love Change! I do! The color was great before, and the color is great now, and I'm sure the next color I paint it will also be great. ;) There's just so many great color options out there to just live with one forever.

Okay, so today's post is a fun one!!!  I had So much fun putting it together.
I headed over to Lowes.com/Olympic, uploaded my picture, and used the paint color visualizer to try out 11 different Olympic paint colors on our front door. Olympic paint is my favorite paint by the way. 

I think that ALL of the colors I chose would be great options for our door, but of course only one of these colors is the one I picked. So just for fun I thought I'd have you guess which one you think I picked.
*Please keep in mind, that the colors you see on screen may look slightly different in person.

My Summer Yard Sale Finds


It's no secret that I love to shop yard sales.  In fact, a lot of my home's decor was picked up from various yard sales over the years.  I just find so much joy in rumbling through other people's junk. It's seriously one of my favorite things to do.

  Almost every Saturday during the summer months my mother-in-law and I go out for a drive to see if we can catch a few sales and I almost always bring home a few treasures .

Today, I want to share what I've picked up at yard sales so far this summer.
Let's start with my haul from last weekend:

Denim Sofa Love

I believe I have wanted a denim sofa ever since I saw this image from a Pottery Barn catalog many many years ago. Do you remember it? Even though this is from perhaps almost a decade ago, the look is still modern and cool today. I think denim is such a classic textile that will never go out of style.
