My fall tree

Today I had my son Caleb, bring up our Christmas tree from the basement. " Why" you might ask.  Well I like to decorate the tree in fall decorations, and enjoy it up until Thanksgiving weekend when we decorate for Christmas. I decorated it for fall last year for the first time and everyone loved it, hope you do too!

Here are some close up's of the cute decorations on the tree:

I picked the little scarecrow on top and this cute decoration at Hobby Lobby today.

Here is one last look and also my mirror in the powder room:

Thanks for stopping by!

New fall decor and new rug.

Hope everyone is enjoying this welcomed cooler weather, it has been such lovely weather here in the south the last couple of days.  I have had a whirlwind weekend...hubby was home from California and we had an enjoyable weekend and stayed busy the entire time he was here.  One of the things we did was buy a new rug for the living room, we loved the animal print...what do you think?

Here is another view:

I have also been busy putting out some of my fall decorations. I had my brother take out the gas logs inside my fireplace so I could put my large pumpkin and some other fall items inside, I also added orange lights and three led twigs, the light's aren't showing up in the picture, but it is beautiful at night!

Hopefully you can sort of see the light's around the pumpkin.

I am not finished in the dining yet, but here it is so far: above and below:

This is a mirror I have in the study, notice my little dog Gracie in the mirror?

Well hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far, and I will be back soon!

What I have been up to.

I have some new things I would love to share with y'all, I have been sewing and rearranging and creating.  Let's start with the new window treatments, remember a while back I told you I was learning to sew?  Well, my very dear friend Donna who lives in Tn, skyped me on the computer for about 2 hours and stepped me through the sewing process of the curtains .  I found the wine bottle fabric at JoAnn's, it goes great with my kitchen decor:

 The sheer's were much easier to make than the valence's, but I did it, how do you think it looks?
  Next is our master bath, I bought the curtain at my favorite thrift store for $1.50 and simply added fabric at the top and bottom to pull the colors in that I have decorated with.
The shower curtain I bought from the same thrift store for $1.50 and added the same fabric to it.
Okay, are you totally bored with the bathroom pictures?  We are almost done!

Here is my beautiful travertine floor we had installed last summer, I love the medallion.
Oops we are not finished yet...hang on......
My shutter we hung in our bedroom, painted it black and then added gold....aren't the knob's wonderful?  Hobby Lobby has some great hardware.  I also made the coffee filter wreath and the tassel.  Now.....we are done, hope you enjoyed looking around our home!
