The House is Ready for Fall!

One of my most favorite things in the world is decorating, and I love re-decorating for the Fall and Christmas seasons. I would do the entire house if I had the money and the space to store everything!! As it is, I only have room for 2 Rubbermaid containers of Fall decor so I have to limit myself. I still enjoy it so much though, it makes the whole house look different and new, and the colors of Autumn are so warm and welcoming. I just wish we had the cool crisp air and beautiful colorful foilage to go with it. Even so, I thought I would share my love of decorating and of Fall with you.

I also love quilts and have a huge container full of them, and more that don't fit. The problem is our house is so small I don't really have a way to display all of them, but I do use the old ladder against the wall to display one and I change it with the seasons. This particular one I think came from my mom's best friend, who we refer to as Aunt Carol.

The large picture on the wall used to be my Papaw's, and on the truck it says Middletown, OH which is where they lived when they were alive. Dee Dee made the smaller frame in the middle of the shelf.

Someone with good eyes might notice the "Baby in Bloom" frame on the side of the, I do not currently have a baby in bloom, lol! It's an ultrasound of Halie that I leave up there because I love to look at it and remember just what an amazing miracle she is.

I even put a little decoration in the laundry area! : )

I bought this rug on clearance 2 years ago for $2 I think.

The front door area.

My mom gave me this big glass jar a few years ago. I threw this whimsical display together with leftover things I hadn't used in the house, plus some sticks from the yard.


  1. Steph,
    You outdid yourself! Everything looks so gorgeous!! (magazine worthy!!)
    I have so NOT been in the mood for fall, all your talk got me goin' and today I did alittle bit of decorating myself :) I only have one bin full though, think I need me some more stuff! LOL
    and now I need to clean up my mess!

  2. oh yeah! meant to say the new header looks nice too! ;) (and background)

  3. It's funny to look thru the pics and say "I have that", "i have one like that" or "I gave/made that"... I'll probably decorate in the next several weeks.

  4. It looks great. LOVE the trunk! :-) Happy Fall.
