Fall around our house

Fooled ya!
wish that was my home!
I love all the white with black accents
rusty urns filled with gourds
colossal old clock face
grand mirror
wonderful feast prepared overlooking the country
& my favorite touch....the lyrics of "cowboy take me away" from the dixie chicks painted across the wall!!

I think as much as I get sad packing up my seashells each September, I get equally excited to see the first pumpkin at the market.
Not living in prime pumpkin country, I take my pumpkin picking very seriously.
Last weekend we took a road trip to watch a cheer competition & found a wonderful market outside of Atlanta selling fabulous pumpkins.
Jarrahdale blues
heirloom cinderella's
& of course the wonderful white pumpkins!!
oh the little joys in life!
Now, these are from my home~~

& for those of us who love martha......the glittered pumpkin!

Brinkley's toy of choice for the season....a football of course!

Yes, I know the star looks a little like Christmas.....which reminds me.....Martha Stewart Christmas ornaments are in stores.....shhhhh!!
Contrary to my families request, I have loved having the kitchen (along with several spaces downstairs) being neutral tones. Makes it oh so easy to decorate for fall & just whatever season.
Found these wonderful slips at Antrhopologie!

One more thing, thank you for such sweet comments on my Caroline entry.
What a blessing to have new "friends" out there in blogland
Happy weekend.

OHHHH........... the Fall Fairy made a WONDERFUL stop at your home! Such pretty trickets and decorations she had left in her bag after visiting my home!! I think she saved the best for last!! I am still on the search for white pumpkins here... found one last year at Trader Joe's, but alas... none yet. Thank you for the eye candy! Isn't Autumn just the best?? : )

ooh oooh ooooh, what wonderful eye candy. Love it all, even if it's not all yours. I have two old rusty urns, I now know what to put in them for fall. Thanks.

i love this post! just reminded me of why i love my all white color scheme. the pictures are beautiful at the top of hte post, but so are the pictures of you home. i have dream and wish and other written things in the windows and on the walls. but i may have to add cowboy take me away. too cute. but i'm sure my husband will say he's not a cowboy. well, he may just have to pretend to be one.

WOW ! You really had me fooled and convinced on those pics ! I was thinking, "oh my gosh ! What a place !"
Great way to tease us readers ! :-)

I do love the way you decorate your "real" house.
And, I have never seen or heard of white pumpkins before. Am I the only one out there that this is new to ?

Have a wonderful day !

Hi, I just found your blog and was really admiring your "home"! I was drooling with envy until I read that it wasn't your house. THEN, I drooled with envy again as I looked at your "real" house! It's just as beautiful as the other one!

Absolutely gorgeous home photos of "around the house" - I love the unusual coloured pumpkins & cloche & all your Halloween themed decorations.

Your home is as beautiful as the pictures from a magazine! I notice lots of Southern Living at HOME items in your house!

You have such a knack for decorating!
