Fall Decor

     Whenever I see link parties for mantels I cringe. I have a mantel but its nothing to write home about and it contains that ugly cable box with the TV above. Not decor friendly, but it keeps the fam happy! ;)

       I love this time of year. Its so cozy, warm, and full of layers {colors and fabrics}; all the things that make a home homey!

     I decided to make the best of it and see what I could come up with. Here's how it turned out along with a few other areas around the house that were spruced up for fall.

     I love how the sticks bring in that natural element and hopefully your eye goes to them and not the box they sit on! ;)

     You can learn how to make this cute pumpkin here.

Happy Fall!

  1. Jody,
    All your Fall decor looks that darling pumpkin in your kitchen.


  2. Jody, congrats on your dining room, which I saw featured on Aimee's blog. It's how I found your page. Keep up the great work, lovely blog :)

  3. Love how you've done the basket with the sticks and seasonal items!

  4. Love the idea of the sticks. Yes your eye goes to the sticks!
    I would love to invite you to Homa Style's No Orange Autumn Display Link Party going on now.
    Here's the link... Hope to see your creation there! Your bits of orange with the turquoise is awesome.

  5. I love the basket in the fireplace! Gorgeous decorations, great job!


  6. Jody, all your fall touches are beautiful! You did a great job on your mantel.

  7. Lovely fall decorating! I think you did a great job of camouflaging all of the electronics. The basket in the fireplace opening is a fun touch.

    Your metal breadbox is adorable!

  8. Super cute decorating. I love it all. That open shelf is awesome and the fireplace!!


  9. Thank you so much for linking to Homa Style’s No Orange Autumn Display Link Party. Your autumn decor is lovely and I was excited to show it to my readers. Homa Style will be hosting a Simple Holiday Handmade Gift Idea Link Party {Please no sale items} on Oct 31. Hope to see you there. Thanks again!

  10. HI there, I am loving my visit to your blog. I might be able to help you with something I noticed. You may be able to get rid of the center brace in your open kitchen cabinet. (former kitchen designer here). Look at the back side of the brace, top and bottom, and see if there is a screw in it. The screw should connect the center piece to the top and bottom rails of the cabinet. If so, unscrew them. You might have to take a long knife or razor blade and cut the glue at the joint, if there is any. Sand the blank spot smooth and repaint the rails. If the shelves seem flimsy, you can replace them with sturdier plywood, or glue and tack molding to the front and back edges of the shelf to re-inforce it. Email me if you need more help. Rebecca
