Weekending | Room Reset and a Rusty Pitchfork

This week has been a Longgggg one. Seriously. My teenage son got his first real job, which is a huge “hip hurray,” but he doesn’t have his driver’s license yet.  So you know what that means?

Pastoral Farmhouse Antique Thanksgiving Postcards

Over the weekend, my daughter and I went on a quick road trip.  Along the way we made a few stops along the Spoon River Drive.  It’s a yearly fall festival that I’ve attended since I was a child. The fall scenery along the route is beautiful and many of the stops have vendor booths. One of the booths I visited had boxes full of antique postcards.  I wish I had time to look through all of them, but they were {Read More}

Being Thankful | Blogger’s Seasonal Harvest Tour

When I was invited to participate in the Blogger’s Seasonal Harvest Tour, I didn’t have any idea what I would share. A whole house tour was out of the question.  By the time I cleaned and decorated, Christmas would be here.  So I didn’t give that idea a passing thought. I could have dug through my junk stash and looked for something to repurpose for fall, but to tell the truth, my heart just wasn’t in it. I keep things {Read More}

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}
