My Fall Home

Fall is one of my favorite seasons!
I love the brilliant colors, the woodsy scent of leaves, and the crisp evening air.
I get excited about pulling out my sweaters and boots,
and wrapping up in cozy blankets.
It was so much fun bringing some of those elements into my home this year!

I don't think I've ever really decorated my porch for fall, other than setting out a mum.
But after I got these gorgeous pumpkins from Massanutten Produce, it all just came together.
This old hickory rocker was left at the house,
so I added a cozy flannel I found at the last Embellish sale!

I stopped in at the Blue Ridge Hospice Thrift Store and found this darling yellow garden stool.
I love the pop of color it adds to the porch!
The galvanized bucket was a few dollars at a flea market.

I created these farmhouse banners for the Barn Sale this year,
and this one ended up in my studio!

I love the simplicity of these mini white pumpkins, and used them throughout my house.

The terrarium is a great place to display seasonal items!
I put a mini pumpkin, leaf and some acorns in mine.

This is one of the many old mantles that came out of the farmhouse that was originally on this property. 
The sign is one that I painted (and is for sale if anyone is interested!)
and the ferns were foraged in the woods behind the house. 

The succulent pumpkin was a gift; isn't it adorable?!

I used my wood round to create an autumn-themed tea bar, complete with pumpkin spice tea
and salted caramel syrup! The coffee drinkers can't have all the fun.
Oh, and let's not forget all the pumpkin desserts!
It wouldn't be fall without them.

And we're on the back porch, where Hadassah is cozied up with my Aztec blanket that I purchased 15 years ago in Mexico! It's also Sprinkle's favorite spot to take a nap.

Thanks for joining me on a tour of our home!

  1. Lovely as always, Ruby. I love white pumpkins and scatter them throughout my house too. I think it's so fitting to celebrate a season of harvest and thanksgiving before we rush into the busy holiday season.

    1. Thank you Janelle! I so agree that it's important to take time to be intentional in giving thanks! Happy Thanksgiving season!
