For those of you new to my blog, we just moved into this house in June.
With the craziness of moving and now school starting I probably wouldn't have done much fall decorating this year except Michelle was nice enough to invite me to be part of her
Home Tour blog hop.
And I am so glad she did! I have just loved having my home all decked out for fall!
Our last house had a beautiful stone fireplace, so at first I wasn't very inspired to decorate the mantel in the new house, but once I started playing around with it I really enjoyed putting it together.
The mantel is really long too, so I could fill it with all kinds of fall goodness.
I am definitely a neutrals girl so you won't be seeing too much color on my home tour.
On the mantel I placed some wood candlesticks I found on clearance at Target, wheat clusters, textured pumpkins from Target, some little tweed pumpkins I found at the grocery store last year and a wood leaf garland I just picked up from World Market.
Oh and in case anyone is wondering, the mirror is from Kirkland's.
I attempted to hang a coat rack in our entry way and had visions of my thrift store market basket hanging from it.
Instead all I managed to do was make a bunch of holes in the wall.
I am bad at hanging things! grrr.
So I just put together this little arrangement instead and I am calling it a day, for now.
If you want to see a more colorful version of my fall living room you can click here.
I found a wonderful white pumpkin for the living room, and I'd hoped to find some white mums too, but there are none to be found at the moment so I used some faux flowers from Ikea instead.
The lantern was a gift from a friend, but it is from Pottery Barn.
Do you spy the cute little Give Thanks pillow?
I found that in the dollar spot at Target!
Who says you have to use orange for fall decorating? Why not gray and white?
Sorry for the blurry quality of my dining room pics.
It is the sunlight coming in from a large window.
So Lisa, you plopped a pumpkin in a pedestal and you call that decorating?
Well it is decorating out of necessity, how about that!
While I've unpacked most of the boxes from our move there are still a few I haven't got to and evidently one of them holds all my table runners and cloth napkins!
I do love the green pumpkins though! So why not let this beauty shine!
I'm re-painting this room soon so for now my mirror is just propped up on a table.
I am not looking forward to hanging that heavy thing!
More Ikea flowers around the mirror (they come in black plastic pots, but I "re-plant "them).
Across from my dining room is a French Provincial buffet I bought off of Craigslist and lovingly made over.
I am about to sell it though so if you are in the Austin area and are interested give me a holler.
I kept the decor on the buffet pretty simple too. I guess it goes with the minimalist dining room.
I placed two green pumpkins in a vintage crate and filled in the bare spots with some oak leaves from my back yard.
It's my favorite thing right now!
My breakfast room is pretty simple too (are you sensing a theme here?)
If you want more info on the light fixture I made for under $10 click here.
I simply placed some mini pumpkins in a raw wood bowl and surrounded it with oak leaves.
I found the bowl at Target last year.
I haven't been able to find any white baby boo pumpkins yet, but these striped ones are pretty cute.
I had to include this little vignette in my kitchen because I just love my owl cookie jar.
I found him at Goodwill and even though I definitely didn't need him, I couldn't pass him up!
One more kitchen vignette and that's all she wrote.
I'm sure I'll keep tweaking things as the month goes along.
