My Fall Porch Magazine Feature

Hello everyone!

Hope you had a great Labor Day Holiday Weekend.

I am still recuperating from my hand surgery. It gets better every day.

I can now type slowly with my right hand.

Just a short post today to tell you about my little magazine feature

in Country Sampler’s Special Autumn Decorating Issue.

4 Simple Fall Centerpieces

I do not have a kitchen table.

We use our dining room table pretty much every day.

Our dining room is truly a room that is used more than the typical dining rooms

that are used for special occasions and holidays.

I see a trend in new homes of no formal dining rooms . . .

Just a dining area that is off the kitchen.

Being that we use our dining room table often,

I try to make a centerpiece that is easily moved if need be.

So today, I give you 4 simple Fall centerpieces.

Going with the traditional color of orange for this one:

Fall Porch

Because I was going to be away for approximately 2 weeks,

I decided not to decorate my front porch until I returned.

Well, I am back and the porch got a Fall facelift.

One of the first things that I did when we returned home

was to go to the Farmers’ Market. One of my favorite places.

Fall Porch 2015 and A Giveaway

I know that Fall is approaching when I see the beautiful mums in the garden centers

and even the grocery stores. As soon as they appear, I have this need to buy some

to begin decorating one of my porches.

The porch you see from all of the rooms on the main floor.

Master Bedroom Fall Makeover

The Master Bedroom Fall Makeover was the first on my list for transitioning into Fall.

Could it be because it’s the easiest one for me? Or could it be that this room

is not as visible to others . . . and the thought of changing things out for Fall

when it is still warm and the leaves have not turned colors may be rushing it a bit.

HAPPY FALL Y’ALL !!!!

Fall is my very favorite time to decorate my front porch . . .

I think it is because I can decorate with the beautiful mums and pumpkins of the season.

Welcome to my home and porch dressed for Fall!!

Pumpkins and Cheetah

What goes well with pumpkins….well Cheetah of course!

On a trip to Pottery Barn I saw their new Fall line of pillows which included their “Cheetah” pillow cover.

I thought that this would be a great addition to my chair in the great room.
