I painted my house for fall.


No, really I did. I LOVE fall colors. Except for the girls’ rooms (which are a bright yellow for Kami, and a nice, calming – theoretically – sea green for Chloe), every room is a deep fall color.

I finally got around to getting my fall things put up this last week, thanks to some inspiration from my decorating class last Tuesday at Rose Johnson’s lovely home.

This scarecrow is for the girls. And that mum WILL bloom. I'm determined. Don't laugh...

I use the same exact wreath on my door every day of the year. I just change out the picks. This makes for an inexpensive "season" project (I never spend more than $5-$10 on new picks for the wreath.) And my door is always current (except that time I had hearts on it during St. Patrick's Day...) This is the one thing that gives me a "super-mommy-ish" feeling. 🙂

Here's a closeup of my fall wreath. I found it here where a girl made it for her friend's wedding. I just LOVED the way it looked!

So, you can use a Cricut for just about anything.

And ribbon. (And when Halloween is over, I'll just turn those puppies around, and change the ribbon to a different, more Thanksgiving-ish one. They're only $1.50 a roll this week at Hobby Lobby anyway.

These are also the same pumpkins my girls painted a few weeks ago. No, I didn't take the paint off - the rain did. I would NEVER steal my girls' art projects, wash them off, and reuse them for my own purposes. Ever.

Here's my "mantle" - I don't have a fireplace in this house (not many South Caroliner-ers do) - but this one totally works.

My table - I would love to get some place cards going too...I'm still working on some cute ideas for some. I got those green chargers at Target - in the dollar section! I bought some red ones too for Chistmas. 🙂 Can I just say I LOVE that dollar section at Target?

These lanterns were from IKEA - like, $6 or $7 each - I'm a huge Pottery Barn fan, but not a huge Pottery Barn Stock Supporter...therefore...IKEA is my friend.

Here's my makeshift china cabinet. We were given this chest of drawers when we moved from WV from a dear friend, and it's since worked perfectly to hold all my china - which is really mostly my great grandmother's china. I'm sure it'll make an appearance at Thanksgiving.

Happy Fall ya'll. Have fun decorating your homes this year!


About Kim

I am a sinner, miraculously saved by grace, living by faith, and pressing toward the mark of being more like Christ. I absolutely love being a stay-at-home mom! I'm also a caterer for a few weddings throughout the year, a baker, and a party planner. And I love to play in other people's kitchens as well as my own! My husband, Chris, just finished his studies for his MA degree in Pastoral Studies. He's a wonderful (and super smart!) daddy - and the most loving and supportive husband. My two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Kami, are the joys of our lives! We pray that they both would be greatly used of the Lord. Throughout their short time here on earth, we have learned so much about ourselves, our God, and the gratefulness we have towards our own parents, who raised us in the ways of God's Word. Our third unborn child is a blessing as well - even after its recent pre-diagnosis of Trisomy 18, or Edwards Syndrome. This blog has kinda turned into a little journal of sorts of our dark journey down this rather uncommon road. I stay busy cooking, cleaning, gardening, and raising the plants I killed back to life, and homeschooling. I blog when get the chance. :) We are always happy to have visitors, so please stop by anytime! Although, if you do give us a call first, we'll make sure to have some fresh cookies and sweet tea available when you arrive!

Tell me what you think!
