Fall Home Tour

We are celebrating our Fall homes on MHH and today is the day to show our fall decorations.
The above is the first thing you will see as your walk upon my porch. As you proceed to the door you will find this wreath that I made this year from things mostly found at the dollar store. Welcome to my foyer. I love the antique mirror and decorate it for each season. Sorry for the bad photo, it's hard to take a photo of a mirror and not be in it! The kitchen is always the heart of the home, so I always decorate my kitchen so that when I look around, I always find something to smile about. Like the halloween candy on my island. I also have a fall flower arrangement and a Jim Shore pumpkin man on the island as well. My very favorite thing in my kitchen is the hutch that my husband made. It is chock full of fall and Halloween fun. I made the Boo banner and Halloween cones that hang on my plate stand.

On to the dining room! I love to create tablescapes for each season. I have had the pottery pumpkin for 28 years. It was the first Halloween decoration that I bought the first year I was married and he goes out every year!

I love this beaded pumpkin that I received in my Halloween swap as it sits on this little antique table. I made the pointy kitty from the Wee Wonderful site.This antique washstand has been many things in its life. I bought it when I was expecting Yngwie and used it for a changing table. I used it in my living room as a end table and now it wears its fall colors living in my dining room as a buffet. I really have this thing for white pumpkins this year.

In our den you will find this cute display of Halloween fun! I just got the purple glittered tree this year. Since purple is my favorite color and I love all things glitter, I knew this was coming home with me! There is a variety of Peanuts characters, haunted houses, and various fun things on and around my tree.

I hope you have enjoyed the fall tour of my home. Of course, there are decorations in other rooms, but these are my favorite.

Have a great day!

Thank you for visting my blog and I've had a nice time perusing yours, and will come back to it again. You have gone to alot of effort to decorate your home and it looks very autumnal and pretty. We don't really celebrate Halloween in the UK much, a few folk do but not many so it's interesting to see how you do things. BW Goosey
