Because heirloom pumpkins might be one of my very favorite things on earth.

Forget a bouquet of flowers.  Give me pretty pumpkins.

We’re slowly recovering from The Market on Chapel Hill…all the display pics coming soon!

More Simple Fall Decorating

By |October 8th, 2014|

Well, the weather teased me.

We had a couple of Fall-ish days, and I got all excited and broke out the plaid and riding boots.  And it was blazing hot yesterday so I came home all sweaty and puddly.

Yes, puddly.

Our Fall tour this year stuck to mostly the dining room, and while we’ve added a bit more fall […]

Fall Tour & Decorating Ideas

By |September 22nd, 2014|

When Lindsay of The White Buffalo Styling Co. asked if I’d like to be a part of her Fall Home Tour series, I hesitated.  We’ve got a lot going this year, and I don’t do “fall” very often or very elaborately.  I knew it would be fun, though, and I’m so thankful for […]

Clearing Out The Rest, & Upcoming Photo Shoots

By |September 16th, 2014|

Remember that time when I foolishly said I’d be completely organized in 3 months??

Well, needless to say that was a bit idealistic.  I will say, however, we continued all spring and summer to purge and organize, purge and organize.  I think we’ve covered everything minus one closet (that’s partially done) and the garage.  Because we […]

Thanksgiving Inspiration: Recipe & Decorating Ideas

By |November 15th, 2013|

All of a sudden, Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  I’m pulling together the house a little bit–our tidiness has suffered since I started working on the book this fall, and I’m getting back in the nesting mode.

I was perusing on Pinterest for decorating ideas and general inspiration, and I couldn’t […]

My Fall Mantel & Fall Project Roundup

By |November 13th, 2013|

So it didn’t occur to me that I had completely forgotten to show you our fall mantel.  We don’t always decorate the mantel seasonally, but I did this year as I was shooting some book pics.  I thought I’d at least share a quick picture and a roundup of our fall projects and […]

Last Bit of Fall Decor & Newsletter news

By |October 15th, 2013|

I’m sharing the last little bit of fall decor in our home today.  I like to keep things relatively simple…except sometimes, just sometimes, at Christmas I go a little crazy with the seasonal decor.

A few fall leaves, a pumpkin, and some antlers were just enough to add simplistic fall […]

Simple Fall Tablescape & Product Shoots

By |October 2nd, 2013|

It has been such a wonderful few days.  Turning in the first half of the book felt great, and even though I should probably be doing lots of other things, I was just ready to play around in with some of our fall products (and decorate my home for my little man’s birthday […]

Happy Fall!

By |September 23rd, 2013|

The first weekend of Fall was filled with hugs and snuggles and projects and pumpkin spice latte syrup.

My brother came home and we chatted and laughed and cried last night and I went shopping […]

Good morning, friends!

Okay, I get it…it is hard to admit that Fall is upon us.  It’s still 100 degrees here in Alabama.

Fall Crafts-Painted Pumpkins

By |September 6th, 2013|

Y’all know how I am about crafting.

I love the results, but I’m not so into the folding of tiny papers or the stamping of handmade linen towels…I’m so impressed with the folks that are.

There’s a whole section of my book dedicated to the semi-handmade, the quick and easy projects […]

Fall is in the Air- Inspiration
