Archive for the ‘Fall Fun’ Category

It is not quite time to be jolly but it is another most wonderful time of the year – fall! It is in full swing with the cooler temps, leaves changing colors and best of all, OSU is #3 in the BCS!! You knew I had to throw that in there, right? 🙂

I love Fall for many reasons but really love it for the fact that orange is everywhere in homes and so many people, other than just OSU fans, are sporting it constantly!

This orange pedestal table is awesome! Love the lacquer paint – what a bold statement in the kitchen!

One of my favorites, an orange blazer from J. Crew. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

I am obsessed with monograms and love this white with orange trim pillow. Perfect for any room in the house!

These teardrop earrings are stunning. I love the shape, color and pearl accent!

This chair makes me want to have a library with a roaring fire. I would have a book in hand and comfy blanket across my legs – love it!

What about you – are you loving orange right now? Come on now, don’t be shy you non-OSU fans 🙂 All photos with credits pinned on my Pinterest board.

I am thoroughly enjoying fall this year! Last year at this time we were running around like crazy, trying to finish painting our kitchen cabinets before our housewarming party. This year, I get to experience and enjoy fall in the most laid-back, fun way possible! We never did a lot at our old house so this year has been a blast with lots and lots of pumpkins, mums and pansies.

This is the garden cart in our backyard and I am so happy with the way it looks! The hay bale, pumpkins, gourds and mums get me more excited than objects like this should – hah!

This display makes me even more happy that we made the decision to remove the ugly, overgrown evergreen that used to be in this spot and instead have an area to accessorize outside! The garden cart that Conner’s mom got us works perfectly and is a great prop for the fall decor.

I had the two pots already and the hay, mums, pumpkins and gourds came from a variety of greenhouses, home stores and even grocery stores! The grocery store down the street from our house had the best prices on pumpkins, acorns and squash. I love the colors and textures they add to the display.

In our front yard, I am beside myself with our planted pansies! This is my first time to attempt this and I think I enjoyed doing it a little more than one should while planting an annual like this. I planted tulips in between the pansies and can’t wait to see what it looks like in the spring! Our poor Japanese Maple took a beating this hot, hot summer but the red leaves are coming back and she is looking like her old self again!

I put another hay bale on our front porch and layered more pumpkins and gourds all around it. Conner’s mom got me the two lanterns for Christmas last year and they are the perfect accessory with leaves from Dollar Tree and candles inside! My favorite pumpkin in this display is the double-decker on the top right. I think it is so cute!! The pumpkins at the pumpkin patch are expensive but they do have some really cool, original things like this and it was totally worth the splurge.

I totally missed the fall craft linky party, but I am definitely joining Sarah’s outdoor party! Maybe I’ll get to finish the crafts this weekend?? Yup, that’s what I always tell myself…

Dreaming of Fall

We had some nasty storms come through Oklahoma last week and it broke my heart to see some of our bigger tree limbs and a small tree come down in the backyard. One of the reasons we love our part of the area is because they preserved the old, big trees while constructing homes and businesses! What got me excited though was the cooler temperatures and coziness several of the days had. It got me so pumped up and dreaming of fall!

I wanted to post this in case you have a blog and would like to participate but also as a reminder for myself – save these dates and link up to these parties! I love a good linky party, especially ones hosted by these four ladies (The Lettered Cottage, Southern Hospitality, Centsational Girl and Thrifty Decor Chick). They each have amazing blogs that I check constantly. I hope to get some amazing inspiration from Pinterest and put together our best fall house yet!
