Welcome to the first part of my fall farmhouse tour! I’ve been getting rooms ready ever since Deb at Seeking Lavender Lane decided to organize this fall tour of farmhouse bloggers. Every day this week, different bloggers are sharing their homes decked out for the fall season. The links are at the end of this post. A special welcome to those of you heading over from Sincerely Marie Designs! I love Amanda’s home and style. And thank you to Kirkland’s for sponsoring today’s fall farmhouse tour and offering a $1500 giveaway for one lucky winner (entry form below). I’ve added some of their pieces to my home. (This post was sponsored by Kirkland’s and contains affiliate links. All opinions are my own.)
Tulip the cow says hello and invites you to look around! Hopefully you’ll find some inspiration for your own home. I know I often walk away with ideas when I tour other bloggers’ homes.
Tulip lives in our sitting room, which used to be the dining room. I like to read in here or enjoy coffee in the morning. A couple of lap throws in warm colors are perfect for cozy evenings.
My favorite items for fall decorating are gourds, heirloom pumpkins, and fall floral accents. I’ve been working on warming up all of my rooms for the upcoming fall and winter months.
I’ve added a new piece of artwork to my sitting room. I love the trees and thought it’d be perfect for adding cozy autumn appeal. I found the canvas painting at Kirkland’s. The tobacco baskets are new, too.
A simple bouquet of wheat fills a vintage brown bottle from my collection. When I started redecorating my rooms for fall, I decided to add common elements from around the area. Wheat portrays the many farm fields to the west of us.
A pig statuette also gives a nod to farm life in our area. When Christmas comes, this little piggy will get a festive holiday bow.
A couple weeks ago I shared my fall mantel that showcases my expanding collection of amber bottles. The perfect color for fall!
In the dining room I opted for soft fall colors. Dried gourds pair with white pumpkins and fall flower arrangements.
On the dining table is a wooden pedestal bowl from Kirkland’s filled with autumn’s bounty.
Lucky for me our grocery store had gourds and baby boo pumpkins. They’ll easily last through Thanksgiving.
I had planned to pick some wildflowers and field grasses for the flower arrangements but ran out of time, so used the silk version instead.
I fell in love with these king protea stems. So pretty!
I decided to start collecting dried gourds. They last for years!
My dining room is close to being done – I think I’ve finally found the farmhouse table that I want to put in here.
I’m keeping my shabby chic dining buffet. For fall I added a topiary, more brown bottles, and a farm animal stack.
The baby tears topiary is called a lollipop topiary due to the circle shape at the top. I love topiaries and have several.
The farm animal stack features farm animals in our area. One nearby farm even has alpacas.

The antique white console is new to the dining room and is another Kirkland’s find. I originally got it for behind the family room sectional, but the length was perfect for this wall. The console will provide surface area at Thanksgiving for food and serving pieces.
I spied this canvas pumpkin painting at Kirkland’s and decided it needed to come home with me, too. The price was just right!
I recently made the vintage bird prints – you can download the bird printables from my blog.
Out of frustration, I almost gave away my stoneware crocks. I couldn’t find a good place for them – until the console arrived. Now they have the perfect home! I found that 3-gallon crock for just $5 at our local flea market. Don’t you love when you find bargains like that?
Here’s a sneak peek at my under-the eaves bedroom. You can see more of it next week when I share the second part of my fall farmhouse tour. I’m still adding autumn touches to this room. Oh, and those farm animal heads? They’re from Kirkland’s too!
Next up on today’s tour is Lisa from Farmhouse on Boone. She’s uber-talented and a girl after my own heart when it comes to embracing farmhouse style. I know you’ll love her home if you haven’t seen it already!
