My Farmhouse Style Fall Hutch

My love for fall decor is so intense that I need about three Octobers every year. One month of October just isn't enough to soak in all the autumn beauty both in and outside the home. Today I spent a little bit of time clipping branches from my Maple trees to create a Farmhouse Style Fall Hutch. White ironstone, gourds, and Maple leaves come together to add a punch of Fall to our dining room hutch.   Slowly but surely I've been building … [Read more...]

Decorate Pumpkins with Grapevine Wreaths

If you've been on Pinterest lately or perusing home decor blogs, it's likely you've seen some type of vine-wrapped pumpkins all dressed up for Fall. I've been anxious to decorate pumpkins with grapevine wreaths to add a little pizzazz this season. I have to confess, I didn't think to add the hydrangeas until I saw Lucy's fall-inspired hutch at Craftberry Bush.   To decorate pumpkins with grapevine wreaths, gather your supplies. All you … [Read more...]

Fall Scenes and Spooky Houses

Fall is my favorite season! It's so rich in color and the earth is just bursting with its harvest. There's a magical feel in the air that stirs the soul on a crisp autumn night lit by a full moon. On recent walks I took some photos of the beauty of this earth and season, along with a couple of homes that have a haunting aura about them. Lace up your shoes and join me for a walk in the woods! Even though it's a gloomy day out, the trees glow in … [Read more...]

The Early Face of Fall

As I gaze upon the early face of fall and watch the season progress toward winter, I'm reminded of my mother's journey with Alzheimer's. The early stages of this disease are now progressing into something more serious for her, but she's entirely unaware. My grandmother had Alzheimer's so I'm no stranger to this disease that slowly steals the mind. Slowly the person you love and know so well begins to disappear. They no longer recognize … [Read more...]

Dry Sink Full O’ Fall

When I bought the new buffet, it replaced the dry sink which meant the dry sink needed to move. The dry sink took up residence where the bookshelf used to be. The bookshelf didn't belong in the dining room anyway. The dry sink is painted white using regular latex paint. I think I'm going to paint it Old White using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. This way, it will match the dining table and buffet. The mirror used to be gold. I painted it today in … [Read more...]
