How to Create a Twinkling Potpourri Light

On Saturday I shared  a fall farmhouse table setting that featured jar candles (thank you all for the sweet comments!) and I promised to show how to repurpose the candle jar once the candle has been used up … … because if you’ve visited my blog for any length of time, you know I love repurposing  jars!

Table Setting for Fall in Non-Traditional Colors

Normally I love the earthy brown, orange, and yellow colors of fall, but this year I decided to break away from traditional fall colors, with a lighter fall farmhouse table setting. Before my mother-in-law passed away earlier this year, she and my father-in-law had started going to estate sales. She knew that I love old things and bought me a vintage tablecloth at one sale. I’ll never forget when she called to tell me she was sending it to me.  She said she {Read More}

Fall Recipes, Decor + DIY Furniture – Talk of the Town #37

Are you ready for fall, or are you clinging to every last minute of summer? I love summer weather to last as long as possible, but once I see the first few leaves starting to change color, I can’t help myself, I embrace fall wholeheartedly. I love the moderate temperatures, and can’t wait for the trees to break out into a full display of changing colors.  I love going to harvest festivals, and drinking fresh apple cider, and seeing lots {Read More}

Decorating on a Budget for Fall in the Farmhouse Entryway

Decorating on a budget can be tough.  We want our homes to look cozy and inviting – especially in the fall, but money doesn’t grow on trees, does it? It doesn’t help that store shelves are filled with pretty seasonal decor, and everywhere you turn you hear about “must have” decor and “fall essentials”. Very few of us “must have” anything more than we already own, and we are blessed with all the essentials we really need. I admit that {Read More}

Give Thanks DIY Painted Wood Sign

I want to enjoy every last minute of summer, but knowing that autumn is just around the corner, I decided to work on a sign with a “give thanks” theme.

Antique Crates and a Rusty Kettle

I’ve mainly been working on Christmas projects, but I had to squeak in just a little bit more of autumn! I was hanging some decor in our still unfinished entryway (sigh), and I put some antique crates on the wall to use as small shelves.

My Weekend and a Thanksgiving Song Printable

Thanks to all of you who left sweet comments about my little toy sleigh (and fake “snow”! Two of my sons, and their girlfriends participated in a “Color Run” in Little Rock this weekend, so I drove down with my oldest son to watch them. It’s a long drive, but it was so nice to take the weekend off and just relax. I even resisted the urge to bring any kind of project with me to work on, so I would have no {Read More}

Inexpensive Rustic Fall Centerpiece – Home for Fall

Every year at this time, I have to wear blinders when I go into stores, because we have lots of fall and winter birthdays in our family, and if I hope to put a Thanksgiving meal on the table and have any presents under the tree, I can’t spend money on ready-made decor. So when I found out that Hometalk was hosting a “Home for Fall” blog hop, I wanted to participate, but I challenged myself to do it without buying a single {Read More}

Halloween Sheet Music

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball, and this was a curve ball kind of week. As I mentioned recently, my parents are here  for a two week visit, but they left for a few days to visit other extended family.  When they returned back to my house last night, my dad tripped over one of our dogs, and fell on the concrete right outside my door.  I called for an ambulance and he was taken to the ER.
