Fall 2017 Sunroom Decor

My sunroom is truly a room with a view. The windows on all sides of the room allow a glimpse of the lake that is located directly behind my house. My dream is to one day install a wood stove. Until then, I am using an electric fireplace. I’ve used four napkins to make a runner for the mantel. I’ve included some candle pumpkins and an owl is poking through. The lantern is decorated with …

Hello Fall! (Fall 2017 Front Porch Decor)

Well Hello Fall!  I’ts been a long year, and I’ve missed you. The metal bookshelf is all decked out to welcome fall into the house.

In the corner of my living room near my front entrance, I’ve placed a large pitcher and bowl filled with golden leaves, orange berries, and moss covered branches. The scent of cinnamon greets you as you enter the house from the cinnamon pine …

Fall 2017 Living Room Decor

On my fireplace mantel, I am using a mercy etched pillar holder with a mercy catch pot.  There are a bunch of flowers and berries thrown in.  And the cutest plum pumpkin is the perfect touch. I don’t have a coffee table so I use my ottoman with a tray.  Keeping …
