Jesus is the reason for the season wreath


As the holiday season approaches let's try to remember the real reason for the season! I have sold several of these wreaths and have orders for more. 

 Are you decorating yet? I'm just getting started and am behind but it will eventually get done. I will share pics here soon! 

Have a great week!

Fall Dining Room Centerpiece

Oh how I love the colors of fall! I made this centerpiece full of pumpkins and hydrangeas and remembered I had the mosaic globe stashed in one of my closets! Ha! It fit perfectly in the center of the arrangement. Do you have seasonal decor stashed all over your house or is it just me? 

I hope you are having a wonderful October!

A Little Fall in the Entryway

I found this fence with the lights in Dallas several weeks ago. I set the fence down in a basket and added the pumpkins, berries and leaves around the bottom. It needed a little something so I added the gather sign on the fence. It is different, but turned out really neat! I hope you are having a great start to the fall months!

Fall In The Kitchen

Happy first day of October! I always think of Oct. 1 as the first day of fall. It starts to cool off about this time every year and it's also my birthday and those are coming around too fast! Ha!
I wanted to share a little bit of my fall kitchen with you today. I found the cute pumpkin spice sign at Michael's and added a little arrangement to the top. Isn't that scarecrow wall hanging adorable? I found I found it years ago and still love it. The island is also decked out with pumpkins and vines. Love this time of the year!

My Aunt and Uncle's Beautiful Southern Home

 There's no doubt that my aunt and uncle's house looks like it came right out of a magazine! It has charm and character and is very unique. My aunt is an awesome decorator and she has inspired me in many ways. Even when I was young I thought she had the most beautiful house! She mixes antiques with new unique items to create beauty and interest in her home. They recently renovated their master bathroom and kitchen and painted all of the walls. It is bright and airy and I think you will agree that bathroom is gorgeous! Of course, the kitchen is stunning too along with the rest of the house. She has also had furniture recovered and redecorated almost every room. I posted 46 pictures including some of the outdoor living area and pool. 

Enjoy the pictures and feel free to pin them for inspiration!
