My Fall Home Tour

Fall is definitely creeping in a bit in my part of the country.

We have cooler temps . . . well, cooler to me means it is not in the 90’s . . .

and I can see some slight changes in the color of the leaves on some trees.

That being said, it is time for my Fall Home Tour AND A GIVEAWAY!!!

So grab a seat and your favorite beverage and come along!

My Blue and White DIY Pumpkin ~ bHome Fall Tour Day 4 ~ A Giveaway

One day when at my favorite mall, I saw a new store that just opened called Paper Source.

It looked interesting from the window, so I went in and browsed around.

They had wonderful papers for all kinds of purposes.

I spotted a pretty blue and white patterned paper and thought I could

use it for a future project. I originally thought I would cover a box,

however with the Fall season upon us, I went in a different direction.

Why not try my hand at covering a pumpkin. Something we have seen in blogs and magazines.

Silhouette, Fairies, and More Pink in a Little Girl’s Room

Silhouette, fairies and more pink in a little girl’s room was on the agenda this week.

Today, I shall tease you with some little updates.

A little girl’s room that has taken a while to do, as we have been working on it a little at a time.

When we placed, or should I say squeezed, the bedroom furniture in the room

which was my craft room, and now it’s “our” craft space,

she stated she would like to see more pink in the room. So her wish is my command.

You will see fairies fluttering about the room.

On mirrors and stems of flower plates.

A silhouette that was created at Disney World several years ago

hangs on the door of the craft cabinet.

The striations on the walls is the reflection of the shade of the chandelier in the room.

And of course there needs to be a bit of vintage in the room.

Cranberry Glass Basket - Housepitalty Designs

So we added this cute vintage cranberry glass basket that sits on the dresser.

And fabrics and trim with touches of pink.

Bulletin board of gray and white had to be transformed to pink of course!

Annie Sloan Scandinavian Pink to be exact!

During this entire process of decorating this room, I tried very hard to use what I

already had . . from the bedding to the lamps to the wall art.

When I needed something to place her own craft supplies in, I looked in the attic

to see what I could find. And I came across a Longaberger basket from 1996 that

had the perfect shade of pink on it! Serendipity I say!

The  accent color on the basket could not be more perfect!…A special basket

as it was the 1996 Mother’s Day Basket.

So I leave you today with one of the first things that was done when she actually starting using her room.

I had a pair of quilted hearts that I have had forever.

They were hanging on the door knob . . . however, they found their way to the front of the door.

A dual purpose of beauty of function.

Quilted Hearts Privacy Sign - Housepitality Designs

She turned over one of the hearts to the back side to write her message

of when she needs “privacy” and that means to knock before entering.

Does this mean she is growing up? Yep, I think so!

Cue the box of tissues!

Have a great day enjoying each moment of the day and making memories!
