Happy Halloween House Tour
Thought since I am getting ready to take some of these pretty things down tomorrow I have better show them to your first.
I love the holidays and decorate for every single one…. I think! There is a huge amount of boxes, bags and cabinets of holiday stuff in my basement. And I need to get rid of even more…. but I just can’t seem to help myself. I love it all.
But I love the colors of fall the most. My kitchen walls are pumpkin and sage. It looks fall all year, but it just glows right now.
Mason Jars and a hand held mixer. I will be storing seeds in these soon. My junk has a purpose! Lol…
I love the worn handle on the mixer…. I think this one was hubby’s grandmas.
My mom’s kitchen is all chickens… I just have this one…. so far!
This hangs on the patio door.
Some greenery from my countertop.
Some black crows in the living room.
A collection of fall things on my TV cabinet…. the branches is from annual baby’s breath! It dried fantastic, one more reason to grow it.
I have little pumpkins everywhere.
These are in my dining room,
But this is my favorite “fall” item…. a painting that was done for my grandparents of the house I grew up in….
My parents bought it when I was three. It was the “home place” of our family farm.
We lived there until I was 18, and now it looks much different. But I think it is such a blessing to have a painting of your childhood home, just as you remember it.
And the fall leaves in it just are perfect. They are huge maples I remember playing under. The one on the left is gone now. It looks a bit odd when I go by there not to see it.
Hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend with your families. We are mowing one last time and then putting up the hoses and gardening things for the year. Which is fine because I am now thinking pretty hard about where the trees are going this year. I am guessing I will start the Christmas decorating in a few days! Lol… It takes me about 2 weeks to do it every year.
Lol…. Happy Halloween….Brooke
