Autumn Decor

The crisp,chilly mornings,cute cardigans,boots,pumpkin spice lattes,and the crunch of beautiful leaves underfoot...are a few things I love about autumn.I prefer the term autumn over fall-sounds much more beautiful to me.I tend to decorate my house with neutral colors.Bright orange and red are beautiful-I just don't want my house screaming those colors.I did incorporate more color this year tho.I didn't spend any money on decor this year-just shopped the house and outdoors.I'll show the living room first.

The old window  came from my Mom when they moved.I made the autumn banner from book pages.

An old book stuck behind the broken window pane.

I love my "give thanks" pillow I won from Jennifer from Dear Lillie.The vase is filled with dried okra (pods?) from our garden.The tray was a birthday gift from my sister.

Here is a shot of more of the room.Our living room is big and it's hard to get the whole thing on a pic.Especially if you have an ugly 90's plaid couch under those pillows and blankets on the right.I ordered a slipcover today.I am soo excited!!

A few touches of red/orange/brown on my open shelves in the kitchen...

A shot from the livingroom.

Simple table decor..

German Chocalate Cake.Hubby's birthday cake every single year.I really should bake it more often.


My first attempt at baking a pumpkin roll.It was good-just needed more of that cream cheese filling!!

After you're done licking your chops,come hang your hat in the laundry room.

This "gallery" wall full of random things was inspired by Pinterest.I seem to have a fetish for hanging empty frames on the wall at the moment.I hung wreaths,a basket,dried fern leaves and book papers too,along with a painting I found for FREE in the bottom of our motorhome=).The blue and browns mach my house inside perfectly.Sorry about the bad pictures,the sun was glaring in the door.

My grandma's old ironing board is standing in the corner.She passed away 3 years ago-I always think of her when I see it.

My brothers used this dresser.I may paint it one day but I'm too lazy for now,I'll let it.

This next picture isn't really "autumn-ish",but I decided to show you anyway.I used the springs from the baby bed all of us 9 kids slept in for my inspiration board/photo board in the office/craft room.
It's definitely sweater weather.Bundle up and enjoy the beautiful hues outside your window.It will be Christmas before we know it!!
