Thanks so much for stopping by!
If you're coming from A Stroll Thru Life or Hi Sugarplum, Welcome. Don't you just love Cassie's kitchen with that striking tiled backsplash. I love it!
I'm so glad you're here, today is my birthday and I couldn't be happier that you're celebrating with me. :)
As soon as September arrives apples are the ones that fill the fruit bowl on the kitchen island.
The second batch of homemade apple sauce is coming soon, for now, apple juice is closest thing we have at hand, well, after the real, fresh apples.
My kitchen decor is always to a minimum, fruits, vegetables, or some branches from the backyard are the ones to bring the colors of the season.
The breakfast table was dressed in neutral colors, just as the rest of the house.
Artichokes and a mum plant from the garden give the table that earthy feel.
Handmade placemats and a rustic jar holding the utensils complete the set up.
The kitchen, breakfast and family room are all together creating one long room. At this very end the fireplace takes command.
Whites, browns, and greens are the theme here. Oops, pumpkins too. ;) You can check all the details about this fall mantel right HERE.
Is here in the family room where I spend a good amount of time blogging.
Pillows and throw blankets for the cold days ahead, are some of the items that make this spot so comfy.
It's also the place where the whole family gathers to watch T.V. or hang out.
I don't show this wall much on the blog,
I think the T.V. still makes it look boring.
The floating shelf above the T.V. was spruced up with white vases and with the only hydrangeas my garden produced this year.
I kept on waiting and waiting for them, but only four appeared.
I had to make them last longer.
The vintage sideboard is here too, close to the kitchen table.
All the cleaning it went thru is a thing of the past, I'm just enjoying it now.
Branches and paper leaves served as decor for the glass hurricane candle holders.
A piece of tree bark found in the woods holds three tiny pumpkins.
Let's move on into the dining room, that's the view coming from the kitchen.
Pine cones and white dishes are displayed on the narrow shelves.
A quick set up on this table was also done. My old herb planter came in handy as a centerpiece.
Pumpkin seeds top each plate.
Adjacent to the dining room is the living room.
Yep, I'm still at it...
Dressing up those old windows for the seasons it's so easy and cheap. Really!
Most of the time I use wrapping paper, only three bucks and voila, a gigantic piece of art.
This time: Post cards.
I found the paper at Marshalls.
The metal tray on the coffee table is also art. ;)
And to keep up with the postcard theme in this room, a vignette on a dresser holds a snail mail center.
Well, that's the end of my tour, I usually decorate the main level of my home. I really hope you enjoyed it.
But wait! Let's continue our celebration over at Dimples and Tangles where Jennifer is waiting for us!
