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

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc., and its advertiser.  All opinions are mine alone.  #LoveAmericanHome #cbias #CollectiveBias 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}

Flower Seed Packets Home Sign – Hometalk’s DIY My Spring

The minute the calendar flips to March, I start chomping at the bit for sunshine, green grass and fresh flowers, so when Hometalk announced they were hosting blog hop for DIY Spring projects, I was all in! It’s still too chilly for an outdoor project, so I brainstormed a bit and came up with something that would usher Spring indoors until the weather catches up with me, and here’s what I came up with… Flower Seed Packets Home Sign To create {Read More}

Using Natural Elements and Vintage Decor in Autumn Decorating

I can hardly believe it’s October already, but the calendar doesn’t lie, so it must be true.  I’m afraid to blink, or it will be Christmas!  As much as I love the cheery red decor  in my kitchen, it looked very summery, and I waited a little too long to bring it in.  It’ll be perfect again when it’s closer to Christmas, but in the meantime, I wanted some autumn decor in the kitchen. I don’t have room to store boxes {Read More}

Ushering in Autumn Mantel and Wood Slice Letters

Did you know that autumn, winter, spring and summer all have 1 thing in common, aside from being seasons?  Can you guess what it is? They all have 6 letters in them! So, who cares, right? Wrong! You can get double duty out of the project I’m sharing today, because I made some wood slice letters to display as part of my autumn mantel decor, and since wood slices have 2 sides, you can put the letters for one season {Read More}

Autumn Moments Coat Rack Sign

It’s still a little over a month before Autumn officially arrives, but we took our middle son back to his college over the weekend, and that means that summer is basically over for my family and we’ll get back to our usual schedules and work now.  I’m sad summer is coming to an end, but I do love autumn. It’s a season so rich with wonderful smells, beautiful sights and yummy things to eat. When you think of autumn, what images immediately {Read More}

Outdoor Spaces Welcome HomeSummer Tour

Welcome to my Outdoor Spaces tour! Do you remember that blog post when I took you room by room through my whole house, showing you ever nook and cranny, every organized closet, and all the beautifully decorated spaces in our home?     Yeah…me neither. That’s because that blog post doesn’t exist, except in my imagination. There’s a possibility it never will, because my whole house isn’t finished and even if it was      I could probably never get every room {Read More}

Autumn Photo Transfer to Wood

Did you take any photos this autumn, while the pretty leaves were still on the trees?  I’m so glad I did.  It’s a great excuse to get outdoors and enjoy the beauty that surrounds my home.  Two of my favorite shots were of the view looking down the gravel road that’s in front of our house.  One of the shots was taken on a beautifully foggy morning, and the other was taken on a bright and sunny day.  Taking photos doesn’t {Read More}
