Fall Home Tour Part 1

Happy First Day 
Of Fall!

While it's most definitely not fall
weather here....it has not
stopped me from decorating
for the season!

We've changed a few things lately 
around the house.....
added a bit more color...
a new front door...
and a few new furniture pieces...
  so keep your eyes open!

Here we go...

Found a few pumpkins around town 
and placed them next to this sooo cute
sign I painted thanks to the tutorial
over at Ella Claire...so easy and oh so cute!

The front porch ready for pre-fall...
I was joking with my girlfriend the
other night that there are 3 decorating
seasons between now and November...

Full Fledged-Fall

Full Fledged-Fall 
I will bring out more pumpkins
and hopefully corn stalks!
And MMMOORRREE pumpkins!

 Simon the cow looking
over a few velvet pumpkins
and an olive basket who is
patiently waiting on mums...
darn these South Florida produce markets!
Guess it's just too hot here!

The front entry way...
Sweet Husband installed some
ship lap inspired boards to our
knee wall a month or so back....
it definitely added a much
needed upgrade to the typical 
builder knee wall.

And here she is...my beautiful new door!!!!
My Dad & Mom were able
to acquire a bit of reclaimed
Pecky Cypress boards and they
were kind enough to share with us!

So Sweet Husband had been dying
....okay not really he was more or less
...bribed...bullied...& threatened by me
 to make a new door out of the boards!

And I think he has found a new profession!

My current obsession...antique turtle shells

Love this old rug I found last weekend 
Although Sweet Husband wasn't to sure about it...
he referred to it as tattered...and when we 
happened back by the dealer after purchasing it
she told us someone had come back by to buy it after
we had....and so he asked her who it was so he
could go and resale it to them...
that man sometimes!

Other side of the knee wall...and my
other obsession...
Audubon prints!


The new cabinets Sweet Husband
built out of old windows

Well that's it for Part 1....
Stop back by tomorrow for 
the rest of the tour!

Beautifuful and so welcoming! Love the door your husband built, wow! They can do amazing things when we come up with great plans don't they? Mine installed a kitchen last week, poor guy is best down:)

Good to see you blogging.

Wow! Your fall decor is absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to see how you put things up in the other two parts of this decorating season. The ship lap and the accent on it is amazing. Kudos to your hubby for the wonderful job! However, the piece d'resistance would definitely have to be your new door. It is so beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing this two-part tour. I hope you're having an awesome time!
