Hello there, friends!  I'm so glad to welcome you into my {virtual} home today, and if you're visiting from Remodelando la Casa, I'm thrilled that you're here!  I'm so grateful to Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for organizing this blog hop tour this week, what a line-up of fabulous Fall eye candy!

If you're a new reader, let me take a moment to introduce myself.  I'm a wife and mom to a teen boy and tween girl living in Edmond, Oklahoma (I'm a proud born and raised Okie!).  My husband is a Southern Baptist Minister, and although I have a degree in Education and taught 3rd grade in the early years of our marriage, the Lord has blessed us and I've been able to stay home with our children since then.  I've always had a love for decorating and started blogging about our home 4 years ago at my husband's encouragement, amazed that anyone would have any interest in the little projects that I was doing.  These 4 years have passed in a flash and I can't believe the opportunities, and more importantly, friendships that have been a result of this blog.  So, thanks for reading!

We've still be hovering around the 100 degree mark in our part of the country, so at this point I've kept my Fall decor very simple and subtle.  A wheat wreath on the front door hints that Autumn is arriving.

My style is usually bold and colorful, but I tamed that down a bit for Fall this year.  I focused on mixed metals, natural elements, cozy layers, and I like to use what I have (or what I can forage on the side of the road or in a field!) for the most part, just changing things around and using them in different ways.  

I scooped up these cute brass candleholders that my sister put in her garage sale recently- mini succulents from Lowe's were the perfect size to drop inside.

We'll move on into the Living Room...

I rarely truncate my posts, but today it's necessary due to the number of photos in this post.  Please click over for the rest of the tour, thanks!

Curbside Find Dresser with DIY Faux Marble Top 

I rescued my Dad's Engineering textbooks from college that he was planning to throw out... can you even imagine?!?

I replaced the vibrant abstract I used here over the summer with this painting that my sister did for me years ago, it's one of our favorite spots near Red River, New Mexico.  

 This is our breakfast nook off of the kitchen.  I keep the table easy to clear off for meals.  My parents bought the table at a yard sale for next to nothing, and my Dad refinished it to send off with us as newleyweds to our first apartment.  It's one piece of furniture I don't think I'll ever part with!

Horse apples, crab apples, hedge apples... whatever you call them, they're my favorite (free!) Fall decoration, I've used them a million different ways in the past.

I'll be adding in more Fall elements over the next few weeks. Next week I'll be back with a special Fall centerpiece post, and the second part of my Fall tour will be close to the end of the month.  I hope you'll stick around and join me, it's easy to get notified of new blog posts right in your e-mail inbox by signing up here!  For now, though, I'd love you to check out a few of my seasonal posts from the past-

Start your Friday off right tomorrow with my sweet friend Pam at Simple Details for her home tour. I promise you'll be glad you did, she has me beat with amazing Craigslist finds and a chic style achieved on a budget!  Also be sure to check out any of the other tours you might have missed earlier in the week, there's something for everyone.

Would you like to comment?

  1. What is the paint color you used on the dresser in the second photo, please? My teen daughter searched the internet for hours and this is the color she chose to paint her bedroom furniture - tomorrow!

  2. If you could share the paint color to my email, please: Thank you!
