Whimsical Woodland Autumn Forest


I decided to decorate the entry for fall this year in a theme that is a little out of my comfort zone......a whimsical woodland autumn forest.   I had so much fun creating my autumn forest....hope you like it!

Baby Boo's & Cotton Bolls in my Fall Cabinet



I love this time of year!    H & I enjoy taking drives in the country to see the all cotton fields.   We grow lots of cotton in our area and the fields are so lovely right before the farmers begin harvest season.    Our recent drive a couple of days ago gave me the inspiration for the fall decor in the big lit cabinet in the family dining room

Sculpting Fabric Pumpkins


I have our TV in an armoire and when it's not in use,   I put a chenille drape across the front of it.    The drape is on a tension rod that I can easily drop down to the bottom of the TV when we want to watch a program.

Farmhouse Kitchen Shelving


Sorry,   I messed up and posted a draft.    Here's the link to my latest post......http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2020/09/fall-farmhouse-kitchen-shelving.html

Fall Farmhouse Kitchen Shelving



       H made this shelving unit to fit perfectly in a little corner of the kitchen next to the refrigerator.     It's one of my favorite areas  to decorate and this year I chose calm autumn colors for the decor

Creating a Fall Mantel the Easy Way


Have you ever designed the decor on your mantel and loved it so much you just couldn't bring yourself to take it down when a new season or holiday came around?    Well,  that's where I'm at now....lol!     The thought of taking the decor down made me cringe.....so I decided I would just leave the "bones" of the currant decor up and add fall touches to it.

I started by adding a fun pick up that Walmart is carrying in their fall decor this year.   I took out the black and orange pumpkins that were in the bed and replaced them with a single large pumpkin that fit into my fall color scheme better.

How to Decorate with Corrugated Metal and Calendars



The 2021 calendars are out and I am thrilled to see that a lot of them are featuring Farmhouse style pictures.    I have decorated with calendars for years,   just like my grandmother did many years ago.     I can remember her walls were decorated with about  the only things that were available for her back then.......family photo's and calendars that she received in the mail from business's they bought animal feed from.

Reinventing Years Past Fall Decor


When I made these fabric pumpkins several years ago,   I never dreamed they would become such a staple in my fall decorating year after year.     I didn't realize how many different rooms they've made an appearance in or how many ways I have used them until I looked on my blog today!   They've had quite a life....lol!

Fall Buffalo Check Master Bedroom


My love for buffalo check goes waaaaay back!    I loved it before it was so popular in Farmhouse decorating.    I use buffalo check year round,   but there is just something about that look that is especially cozy & warm in the fall and winter months.

The star of my fall bedroom is the water fall ruffled buffalo check bedding.    I found an inexpensive king size duvet cover on Amazon ($52)  and altered it to create a unique cover for our bed.    The ruffled pillow cases are also from Amazon  ($15)    I didn't receive any compensation from Amazon,   I just wanted to share the info with you guys! 

  The pumpkin pillows I have on the bed are some I've had several years,   but the Rae Dunn MORNING PUMPKIN pillow is a new purchase from Hobby Lobby.

Dreamy Whites & Pastels for my Fall Mantel


I decorated our master bedroom faux fireplace in dreamy whites & pastels for fall 2020.    I have a new bold black & white check comforter on our bed so I wanted the fireplace to be very neutral in comparison.    I will share the new bedding in an upcoming post.

Kicking off my Fall Decorating



School has started and Labor Day is just around the corner......fall can't be far behind!   
I'm not one to put off decorating for holidays and seasons  until the last minute so I'm going to start gradually adding fall touches to our home now.    For me,   it's still a little early to bring out my brightly colored fall decor so I'm going to ease into season with some muted fall colors.

How I make the Most out of a Small Bedroom


How many of you have a small room in your home that serves no other purpose other than to be the "guest bedroom" a few times a year.       Well,   our home is the biggest investment we have ....and I expect every room in our home to "pull their weight" around here....lol!

Adding a Second Gallery Wall to the Hallway


I've had the gallery wall in the hall for several years.    I've enjoyed the ease of changing out the decor on it  by simply changing out the pictures that are hung from the weathered wood window that is attached to the wall.
   
I decided to add a second gallery wall in the hallway when I had a couple of picture frame ledges left over from the family room when I changed the wall decor in there recently

Late Summer Changes in the Family Room


I was walking out of Hobby Lobby a few days ago,   and the young man walking near me was carrying a gorgeous cow pic.   I looked at him and  told him that I thought his picture was pretty.    He smiled and said  "I bought it for my mom,   do you think she'll like it"....and I said "She will LOVE it"   I thought about that picture for several days and finally went back to HL and picked up one for myself. 
I hadn't changed the wall decor on each side of the fireplace in several years,  so I decided to hang it on the left side of the fireplace.
