Fall Living Room

I have gotten all of my house decorated for Fall now! I keep tweaking SOME things but it is mostly staying like it is. I LOVE my living room decorated for Fall! These are MY colors that make me feel SO comfortable. Hope you enjoy. I love when I come down the steps at any time of day and see this view! Our master is on the first floor but some nights I end up upstairs in the guest room cause SOMEONE snores VERY loudly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:):)
 I LOVE adding touches of russet to the blue and white that is in here, it is so harmonius and perfect for Fall!!! I got the wool throw last year. Love the touch of blue.

 I just placed a sparkly pumpkin in an urn on a candle ring!
 Morning shadows
I also love a touch of animal print in any room. To me it is timeless.

I got this beauty at Home Goods, last year for a great price!
 Faux mums. I got them several years ago and can NOT find them again anywhere. Wish I had more!

A blue candle holder and a pumpkin candle holder. And a LED candle on a timer:)
 I made a swag for over the curio cabinet just by weaving 2 garlands together. Simple.

An outdoor table, dinner and clouds

One night last week, I set a table outside on the deck. I just found these dishes at the grocery store and knew I wanted some for the deck. Plus they were priced right! We had chicken breasts, marinated in a mixture of 2 salad dressings. I used a little Italian and then mostly Herb and Garlic marinade from my grocery store. The flavor was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!! The breasts were juicy, tender and so good!I just love these dishes; they are melamine but so pretty for Fall!!! The green flatware is a perfect match!
 I brought one of my candle holders out for some ambiance:)
 Paper napkins are essential outside. I just found some PERFECT paper ones and will be using them now. I will try to share them soon. They really look pretty with these dishes.
 My Dollar Tree goblets go so well; leaves on the plates and goblets.


 We noticed that the sky was so pretty while we were eating.
 And then the moon appeared.
 Our view of the pond from the deck.

 Beautiful, Mother Nature:)




 Boneless chicken breasts, pasta salad,
 and cranberries.
 Now seeing some pink.




 AHHHH
 Glorious! We have some spectacular sunsets here and LOVE every one. We never could see the sunset at the old house. Just glorious.
 
 
Hope you all had a beautiful weekend. We had real FALL weather. It was 59 degrees when Joe and I left for breakfast Sunday morning!!!!!!!! It warmed up to the high 60's which is pretty cool for this time of year here. But the day turned out to be beautiful, low 70's and bright sunshine. I am partying with:

I STARTED to Decorate the Patio for Fall!

Good morning! The other day it was cloudy but no rain scheduled so I STARTED to decorate the patio for Fall. I say started because I have bought a FEW mums but they are not great, I am waiting til I get to the farmers market to get better ones and PUMPKINS! But here is what we have so far. Stay tuned for updates:) As you get to the top if the steps on the deck, this is what you see.
 I have put rocks or bags of sand in my clay pumpkins because the other day the wind blew a ceramic pot of flowers over and it broke in a million pieces:( We have so much wind here it is crazy! Ther pillow came from Christmas tree shops recently. I am so happy to have the patio to decorate!!! This time last year it was just being started!!!!
 We recently got the cover for the egress window that you see here in the background. I want to paint it soon so it blends in better with the stone.
 The leaf pillows came from Kirklands, I had a birthday coupn and another coupon so got them at a pretty good price:) Oh, Joe has just had the lawn aerated and then he spread 5 yeards of top soil and reseeded so that is what you are seeing:( I thought the lawn looked good but he said there were some low spots and bald spots so he did almost the entire lawn. CRAZY:):)

 and so did this smaller pillow. I forget where I found the throw, last year. Joe sits out here almost EVERY night and it is getting a little chilly now so it is for him:)

 I have to replace the mat at the base of the steps. this one is worn out.
 The barrel you see behind the glider is a rain barrel, to fill the pond when water evaporates. We can't use house water since it has chlorine in it.


 I tried this pillow in front but like it better just peeking from behind.
 Have always loved this button pillow, love this color! Will be painting some WALLS this color, and soon I hope!
Thanks for your visit. I will be partying with:
