I can’t even believe I’m blogging the night before our big Whimsy sale. Usually we are working until 11:00 in the barn and scrambling to get everything done. Amazingly, we have put the whole shop together in 24 hours this sale. I don’t even know how that’s possible, if you saw the before and after you would think it’s impossible as well. Needless to say, I’m excited to have a few minutes to sit down and blog my fall tour. I snapped some pictures the other day and am finally getting to uploading them and getting them off.
I started this year with decorating my mantle first, and it was looking very similar to last years…and I was okay with that. Sometimes it’s exhausting always trying to reinvent the wheel, and not to mention expensive. So here’s what I came up with…..
And once I got the mantle done, the rest fell into place.
Surprise surprise the name of the game is neutral for this girl.
You decorate with corn! I love that these added height, texture, and most importantly, they are free!
and I had yet to show you my new grocery sign that I got that matches the bakery sign in my kitchen. It was fun to have pops of black to play off of for the fall.
We grew the green cinderella pumpkins, and the wicker ones were from the Target dollar aisle a few years ago.
I shouldve had a little more fun dressing up my table, but due to Whimsy week there was a lack of time.
I also never mentioned that I got rid of the huge brown couch that was sitting in our living room.
Surprise! It’s the white Ektorp Ikea couch! And I got it for only $60!! My friend was at a Goodwill in the cities and said, you’ll never guess what’s here, for only $9.99. It was this couch, with a tan slip cover. The couch was in excellent shape, and although the slip cover was in good shape, a new one had to be had. One, it was tan. Two, it was used. So for $50, I marched my self into IKEA and grabbed a brand new slipcover and had a new couch for $60. Phenomonal. I know a lot of you probably think I’m crazy to get rid of that dark microfiber easy to clean couch for this, but we moved this in here for a month to see if it would work for our family. Since we now have the huge sectional in the man cave, and we use that for movies and night tv viewing, we really didn’t need a huge sofa in here anymore. And with the chaise on the wrong side, it really ate into our living room space. I must admit, this couch isn’t as comfortable, but it brightens and opens the space up.
I grabbed the little end table I had in the guest house for the time being to put on the other side of it, and a lamp from my bedroom. And now it provides a nice spot for my coffee;)
This is one of my favorite views…I’m kind of in love with that sweet little plaid dish towel from Target for $3.99.
I’m also enjoying this little wheat bundle from Michaels….
If you’re getting sick of all these neutrals, do not fear…Christmas is right around the corner and this house gets very colorful one time during the year!:)
Thanks for joining me! And sorry for the delay, but if you are around tomorrow or Saturday you should come visit us at our Shop, Whimsy Green! We’d love to see you:)
