Fall decorating in my home.

Things at our house have been busy, busy, busy lately. My sister sold her house and moved, my parents went on a cruise recently, and we are in the middle of the annual Fall Holy Day season.
Amidst all of this, my sister decided to sell her bedroom suite to us. We were in desperate need of a King-sized bed. This is our new room:

And with Fall just around the corner, which by the way is my favorite time of year, I had to start decorating.
This is what I added to the bottom of my china cabinet:

Don't you just love Brach's candy corn? I love to put out dishes of this stuff.

These are the french doors which lead to the back porch. I decided to hang a wreath on them this year:

This is the mantle above my stove in the kitchen:

This is a small arrangement I made to go in a small corner by the coffee pot. Those turkey salt and pepper shakers were a gift...I think they came from Cracker Barrel.

This is my kitchen table. My sister came by last week and helped me move a few things around. She gave me some great ideas, including putting this sign on my table, which I had never thought of!

This is a table by my front door. The shutters came from my mother-in-law. The big "S" came from Hobby Lobby. I painted both.

These are a couple of chairs and tables I have in my living room:

This is the top of my new entertainment center:

This is what I put on my coffee table. I like my lantern, and the Paula Deen books stays...but it lacks a lot. I think I need flowers. What do you think?

This is a new sign that I bought from Hobby Lobby for my porch. I love black birds.

I made this wreath last year. It's okay... I've been kind of "down in the dumps" about my poor decorating skills lately.

And I re-covered some old pillows for my front porch. I wanted polka-dots this year.

Hope you liked the home tour. Maybe you were inspired. Wait until you see my next post... my sister let me photograph her new home!!! She did an awesome job! Happy Monday!
