Happy Fall, Y'all!

Wow, Fall is flying by! As we trade in our Pumpkin Spice Lattes for Skinny Peppermint Mochas, I thought I would share a little fall home tour before the pumpkins go into hibernation. Fall is one of my absolute favorite times of year, and it was our first chance to decorate the new house for the season.

Front Porch Sources:
  • old window frame & galvanized bucket- flea market finds
  • pumpkins- local pumpkin patch
  • mums- Aldi ($1.99!)
  • wooden crate- Wal-mart ($11)- I stained it to get the look I was going for
  • front door letter- Karamel Kreations ($30 last year)
  • pumpkin topiary-see below
  • garden flag- Modern Rustic Girl on Etsy ($30)

Here is a zoomed out shot of our front porch, you can see our baby boxwoods  starting to grow.

 My house numbers pumpkin topiary was inspired by this fabulous diy from At the Picket Fence. It may be my all-time favorite Pinterest creation so far (for a grand total of about $25), and you can use it year after year!


  • craft foam pumpkins- Wal-Mart ($6)
  • house numbers- Wal-Mart ($1 a piece?)
  • dowel rod- Lowe's ($5)
  • moss- craft section at Wal-Mart (already had it)
  • barrel planter & rocks to fill it- my grandmother's garden (similar found here)

Let's step inside!

Entry way sources: hello Fall chalkboard-diy from an old picture frame; white barrel- flea market; pumpkin candle holder- Pier 1; pumpkin decoration on table- Dollar General; monogrammed table runner- Etsy; I love my Dog basket- Marshall's
Coffee Table- I love to cozy up with a good book & my Pumpkin Pie candle from Target!
Here is a view of our living room & mantle...we went really simple with the topiaries, candle holders, rustic trunk, and silver pumpkin & I love having the reminder to SIMPLIFY.

P.S...we don't really have a fireplace but we like to pretend that we do :) 

I found this little cabinet at Hobby Lobby & it was the perfect addition to our  foyer. Stacked with my favorite decor books, industrial & mason jar accents on bottom, and the painting & pitcher were auction finds. Added the pumpkin candle holder for a little touch of Fall. It reminds me of Cinderella's pumpkin carriage ;)

 I recently found this farm fresh eggs sign at an antique store. It had all kinds of crazy farm animals hanging from the bottom, so I cut them off & brought them for my preschool students to play with. The glimmery silver pumpkin came from Target, orange one & initial sticker came from Hobby Lobby, wreath from the dollar section at Target ($3 this year), and I believe the white fake pumpkin also came from Target.

I love this little corner of our main room that separates the dining area from the living room. The only new addition was this Happy Harvest basket from Wal-Mart ($6- this season). 

Here is our dining area that looks into the living room. I love our new sofa table that was a gift to hubby from his mom (you know you're getting old when you want furniture for your birthday)! I added a burlap pumpkin from Dollar General and the little white ceramic one came from a local secondhand decor shop. In our Pottery Barn antique silver serving bowl(NOW ON SALE HERE!), I added some sparkly pumpkins I found at the Dollar Tree and some various Fall-ish balls (what do you call the ones that look like they're made out of twigs?) from Hobby Lobby.

On the dining table, I added some mini real pumpkins & gourds and a galvanized bucket to hold some of them. I am still loving my Pottery Barn antique silver salt & pepper shakers (now $20!) & mercury glass candle pillars we got as wedding gifts over a year ago.

I hope you enjoyed the tour, we are finally starting to feel like things are coming together in our little casa. Come back soon for our Holiday Home Tour!
