My Fall Home and A Tour!

Welcome to my fall home! I hope you enjoy your tour. Before we start, can I get you something to drink? How about a cup of warm apple cider?

While we're in the kitchen, let me show you some treasures! The white pitchers are part of collection of white pitchers...they are actually oversized cream pitchers. I use them for gravy boats and for syrup on family breakfast days! The boxes were a gift from my mom and dad a few years ago. The dried hydrangeas came from my brother, Michael's yard. Aren't they yummy?

I made the banner...I love the vintagy look of it. And the cabinet? $10 yard sale find! Score!

This is the top of my corner china cabinet. I just love these hat boxes too...they have a fallish look, with roosters on them, so they are perfect for my fall kitchen. I just love that pumpkiny color. I'm adding more and more of that color to my kitchen year round. It's just so warm and welcoming, don't you think?

This is our fireplace with another handmade fall banner. I love the fallish colors!!
OK, I know you saw the dates on these pictures! I confess, these are not new pictures! I just haven't had time to update my pictures. But things look pretty similar this year. I'll add more pictures over at Scarecrow Soup as soon as I get time!

Be sure to check out all of the other Magical Holiday Homes on tour!

Falling for Winter has some pretty things to show us! Don't you love the play on words in her blog title?
Another friend, Patty, has a post ready for us too!

And Aggy, my sweet friend, has some pretty things to show, too!
And a late entry, Haven Haunt has some ideas to show as well!
Thanks to everyone who participated!

Fall Tour of Homes

It's that time again!! My holiday crazy friends at Magical Holiday Home and I will be doing our second annual Fall Tour of Homes on Friday, October 16! If you want to participate, it's really easy! Just decorate your house for fall-or Halloween, or both-and then take some pictures of it. Post those pictures on your blog and then send me the link, either by leaving me a message here with it or by sending me pm at MHH, if you're a member there. I'd really like to have the link to the post, not to your blog in general..that way, if folks can find your decorations even after you've posted another entry.
I am toying with trying to add Mr. Linky or something like that. I'll make a decision soon-by the weekend, anyway and post it here.
So...get those decorations out, take some pictures and show off your hard work! I can't wait to see what all you have done!!
Happy decorating!
