Welcome to My Fall Home 2018

Welcome! I’m so glad you came to visit me.

The black and orange curled wood wreath on the front door was a steal last November at Aldi. They put all fall wreaths on clearance at 99 cents each. I was lucky to be there as every wreath was gone in 5 minutes.








As I mentioned this last week in my post, Adding Fall to Coastal Decor, my inspiration for the living room this year is a sweet little country pillow in beige and tan.   I got it at an estate sale for a song.










I added a thrift-store king-size quilted sham I’ve been using on the dining and side tables for several years. The pretty quilted sham really is so versatile and looks great wherever I use it. My colors this October are tan, brown, peach, and touches of turquoise. It’s a sort of farmhouse cottage look with coastal colors.










Doesn’t it go well with my tan pillows and painting?  A totally different look for $2.

On the left corner table next to the futon, I placed the centerpiece from my Coastal Fall Table. The coastal sham is used as a table scarf with the planter box, candles, shells, and pine cones.  It looks great next to the little bit of country on the futon.
















On the right of the futon is a bookcase with my planter of green vines.  I’ll be writing more about that in another post later. I have to try pieces of furniture in several places before I find the sweet spot.















I placed the second coastal sham as a table scarf on the side table between the living room and dining area.  I had found this great little woven basket with a painted harvest time sign at the thrift store in July and put it aside for fall. I’ve filled it with flowers and added a mug of turquoise glass stones and a candle.














Over the basket of flowers is my fox printable framed in an aged gold frame. I had called it summer foxes but really the colors go well in my home most seasons. It’s perfect with the flowers.








On the dining table, I have a simple vignette of a vintage country pitcher, another thrift store find. Isn’t the rooster cute?







I wrapped a wooden wreath with a ribbon and placed it in the middle of my metal tray from Cracker Barrel. I added the pitcher and a white lace scarf.  Sometimes I think simple is best.






In the corner of the dining room is my rustic wooden stand with a fall vignette complete with scare crow.









What’s interesting to me is the fact the most of the fall decor elements were vintage and incredibly cheap. Counting the cost of the wreath (99 cents), the pillow ($2), the 2 coastal shams ($2), the fall basket ($1.50), and the country pitcher ($2.50),  I spent $9.00 for my new look and had so much fun looking for treasures.















Hope you enjoyed your visit. Thanks for dropping by!

  1. What a beautiful home you have Carol. It looks super cosy. Thanks so much for showing us around.

    And thank you for sharing with #MMBC. Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂

  2. Hi Carol, what a simple way to bring the seasons indoors. It’s not something we do, but I do like the idea. I love the scarecrow, reminds me of growing up surrounded by fields.

    Thank you for linking up to #keepingitreal.


I love to make new friends and get to know you.
