Well I am a bit behind in blogland on showing my fall decor, although to my defense, I have had it up for awhile now.  After getting through another AMAZING whimsy week….I finally have time to clean my house take some photos!

My favorite seasonal place to start decorating is always my mantle, although it can also be my hardest.  This is actually the second fall mantle I had after I found these AMAZING pumpkins that Target ingeniously came out with…and I knew they had to be front and center in my house.  The one disadvantage I have to my mantle is that it is very narrow, so I have to be a bit particular as to what I put on it.

I also found this fun clock at Hobby Lobby, and wasn’t sure if I would bring it into my house or use it for Whimsy, but after watching on episode of my favorite shows, HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” I saw Joanna use it.  Sold.  It was coming in:)  I love the rustic galavanized metal and how it goes well with the fall neutrals….

I also am in love with my little sign I bought at Whimsy from my sister.

Yes, it’s true.  I love to shop Whimsy as well:)

we grew the small white pumpkins in our garden, the one thing that DID manage to grow.  At least the important stuff came:)

And the dead trees I bought at Gordmans a few years ago.  They were living in Tate’s room, but I pulled them down for my fall decor.

The leaf pennant also came from my sister.  I love the simplicity of it.

I didn’t do a whole lot of decorating besides this.  Just little touches here and there.  A Pottery barn cake stand on the island…

and another stand on my kitchen table.

I filled my 3 tier tray on my dining table with pumpkins….

and my green moss balls.  I have a hard time getting rid of all green, so I really like to use this “dead” yellow green for fall.

My coffee table looks a lot like it did last year..


except I added the two big pillar candles.  I’m hoping to have a “grown up” night soon so I can light them.




So that about does it.  That’s the beautiful think about a small cozy house!:)  It doesn’t take much.

Happy Fall!

  1. Love your fireplace & mantel! (and of course the decorations) We are re-finishing our living room, where are they from? Mainly the fireplace.

  2. After seeing your beautiful mantel on Instagram, I just had to visit your blog to get the full effect of last year’s fall tour. AMAZING! I love every single bit. Is Whimsy a store your sister has? I hope so! And I hope it’s online. I want the leaf banner and sign! :)

    1. Thanks so much for swinging by Wendy:) Whimsy is a store that my sisters and I have in my red barn in our back yard. It is only seasonal and unfortunately is not online yet. We are hoping maybe someday! Thanks for your sweet words though! xoxo
