For the most part, the downstairs decorating is done and I’d love for you to accompany me on a little tour of our home.
Let’s start with the heart of our home…the kitchen. Here is where we enter into the kitchen from the mud room at the rear of the house. We always come in through the back door and so do all our friends and guests.
The Hoosier rests between the back door and the entry to the pantry. Can you see the little tree in the yellow ware bowl on the top right and the set of vintage Halloween cookie cutters? It is so much fun to see all these things again. I didn’t decorate last fall because of packing for our move to Nova Scotia.
Even the pantry needed a little hint of fall so I added an orange berry garland along the top shelf.
Lots more stuff can be found in the eating area of the kitchen too!
The kitchen also opens into the main floor den. The living room is just beyond the stairway in the distance.
Here is where Mr. Painted Quilt and I spend a lot of time reading. The fireplace two photos down is directly opposite…
and the loveseat is to the right.
I added some chenille corn and a Japanese lantern garland to the trencher.
The dining room is just off the den.
Lots of fun fall and Halloween stuff in here.
Even the restroom has a few reminders of fall.
It can’t be fall without candy corn…in all shapes and sizes.
Wool pumpkins and a little woollen pillow…perfect!
The air outside is very fresh and cool today but the living room is bathed in sunlight.
All I need now are some freshly cut flowers from the garden and potted mums to add to the mix.
There’s still upstairs to do and that’s one of the many items on the agenda for this weekend.
I think it just might be cool enough to light the fire tonight. Are you coming over for a cup of hot chocolate or tea? The kettle is always on, you know.
