Fall House Tour

Honestly, I am a summer girl. All the way.
I love hot weather, shorts, tank tops, cold drinks, and lots of pool time.
Yesterday we started winter-izing the pool, usually that would send me into a minor spin of depression as I mourned all things summer and lovely. Yet, I am surprisingly okay. I am actually, wait for it, looking forward to fall. *Major Shocker*
Not sure why this year is different, maybe the fact that fall means a more stable routine. Or, that the hubs is home more (not gallivanting all over the world). Another reason might be my new color scheme, the brightness and cool tones help offset the warm fall colors, keeping the house from feeling too dark. Whatever the reason, I am grateful. I have enjoyed creating a homey atmosphere, and using pumpkins and acorns in little vignettes is just too fun! I hope this inspires you to give your home a little fall facelift - I will tell you at the end my sources and how much I spent. The dirty details I suppose ;)
I am quite proud of that little caddy; $2 at the thrift store, fresh coat of paint - voila!
Still looking for some 'fallish' throw pillows, maybe cable knit?
My favorite, the 'Mantle'. (We don't have an actual mantel, so the entertainment serves as the focal point for my fall decor)
I am very pleased with what I was able to do with a few decorations I already had, some thrifting, and hitting the half off sales at Hobby Lobby and Michael's. Also, dollar tree had the little ceramic pumpkins that I painted a creamy white. After adding it all up I spend about $50 on varius craft supplies and such.
Ceramic mini pumpkins - Dollar Tree
Chevron burlap runner - Amazon
Rustic wood frame - Hobby Lobby
Canvas pennants - Hobby Lobby
Gold Leaf branches - Michael's
Brown twig pumpkin - Target, dollar spot

Looking forward to cozy evenings, and crisp, clear mornings soon.
Hope you have a blessed day!
