All Things Home is back for our fall home tours! This week you will get to virtually visit 25 blogger’s homes all decked out in fall finery!

 I’d like to welcome you to my home today. Fall is probably my favorite season! I love pulling out my fall clothes, cooler temps, changing colors, crackling fires, pumpkins, apple picking and new fall TV shows are starting! 

 Welcome to Our Southern Home!!!! I am so excited to have you visit!

fall-porch

Lizzie is here to welcome you! I know this is not the best pic, but the only one with her!

I use a mixture of real and faux pumpkins. The mum bucket was a Mod Podge project from last year found HERE. The chalkboard tray was $1 from the thrift store. I think it was covered in Easter rabbits.

 The crow has been with us for years! I  still get a bit spooked out when I see it!

 It is finally starting to cool a bit in South Carolina. We are expecting upper 70s this week. It is just too hot to keep regular candles in my lanterns. They melt and make such a mess! Now I just light them with string lights.

 The large piece of drift wood is from our beach trips this summer on Caswell Beach, NC. It is such a cool shape! The vintage bread box was a consignment shop find in Southport, NC.

I love using items from thrift stores to decorate our home. The tables, cheese dome, obelisk, baskets, ironstone, and quilt were all fabulous finds!

fall-dining-room

Welcome to our formal dining room! Honestly, it is only used a couple of times per year, but it is right when you walk in the front door so I enjoy decorating it for the holidays. This year I decided to keep it very simple!

fall-dining-room

 The rug was one of those “cross your fingers” EBay purchases at a rock bottom price! It is a vintage rug.

fall-dining-room

 The basket was a recent $1 thrift store purchase. It has seen better days, but I love the way it turned out for the table…kind of a more relaxed formal look this year!

fall-dining-room

 The burlap pumpkins were a Hobby Lobby purchase last year. The hydrangeas are from our gardens this year. They start out a beautiful blue. I have found that they work best for drying after they have been on the branch a while and are starting to change colors and dry a bit on their own. They have quickly become my favorite flower! I just filled in with a few artificial branches from Hobby Lobby. I have no problem mixing real and faux.

 I recently made my very first coffee filter wreath! There will be a full tutorial later. I think it is perfect with the hydrangeas!

fall dining room

 Simply attach a Command Hook upside down behind the hutch pediment and you have instant hanging power with no damage!

On to the family room…..

fall-family-room

 More hydrangeas and moss in my mother’s footed silver tray she gave me a few years ago along with burlap pumpkins.

 The mantle looks quite different this year! It has always been decorated for Halloween. My kids love it! Not this year….or at least not yet! These pumpkin topiaries started out as orange Styrofoam pumpkins from Wal-Mart! I’ll be sharing soon how I transformed then with ASCP and acrylics. 

fall-family-room

 Not bad for a project costing less than $15!

fall-family-room

 I simply wrapped these faux books in burlap for my summer mantel and left them as is for fall.

fall-family-room

 The moss and twine balls were also from my summer mantel. They actually belong in an arrangement upstairs. Don’t be afraid to borrow from other areas of your home to save on money!

fall-family-room

 Even my wreath was re-purposed. I made the burlap square wreath at Christmas last year from a thrift store form. I removed the “L” from my summer embroidery hoop wreath. It was all a little too small for the art so I retrieved an old grapevine wreath not being used and layered the two together. Nothing is permanent. It is all wired or tied with twine for easy removal for use in a new future project!

 The chest is an antique sea captain’s tool box.

 This $2 thrift store shutter was actually the door to a medicine cabinet. I just unattached it and tossed the plastic cabinet. With the addition of felt pads on the bottom, it makes a great tray. I’ve used it all over the house!

fall-family-room

 I’ll admit….I have a problem buying thrift store silver, but when it is a $1 and a pretty shape….I have a hard time not bringing it home. I like the tarnished look of it.

fall-family-room

 Simply fill the silver try with a little moss and these 3 adorable ceramic pumpkins from the Dollar Tree. Don’t they look expensive!

Let’s head to the kitchen~

fall-kitchen

 Again, I just added a few fall touches. The entire vignette on the chopping block makes it easy to remove if needed.The vase is full of branches from the yard.

 Just a simple vignette for the wet bar area~

 This is the dining area in the kitchen. I’ll be sharing the simple banner soon as well!

 I removed the faux green apples from the dough bowl and added real pumpkins and gourds with a little moss for fall.

fall-kitchen

 The sage green place mats (new) are from Kohl’s as well as the neutral napkins from last year. The table runner is new from the Better Homes and Gardens collection from Wal-Mart. 

fall-kitchen

 

I scored the white ironstone dinner plates for 50 cents a piece this summer! Needless to say, I was quite excited. The pumpkin plates are from Wal-Mart this year for less that $3 each from the Better Homes and Gardens line.

fall-kitchen

 

I just love the colors of fall. The everyday colors in our home really remind me of fall and winter.

Again, I’ve used a small round silver tray to hold a few real pumpkins and gourds.

 This table was my first ASCP project in French Linen 1-1/2 years ago. The table is actually very inexpensively made in a shiny cherry finish. I only paid $20 in a thrift store for it. A little paint, and it is really an improvement. The vintage tool box, I recently completed in ASCP with Old White and Chateau Grey. I’ll have a tutorial up soon on the lettering.

 A little hint: Stuff containers with old blankets or towels, then add a pretty fabric on top as a base for your “actual” filler that you want seen.

  4. Thanks for the great tour of your beautiful home , Christy! I’m with you on mixing faux and real. You do SUCH great vignettes and arrangements. Every room (and your porch too) are wonderful. I have been impressed with some of the BHG items at Walmart this Fall too…I got a beautiful tray that is actually plastic but looks like carved wood. I saw your post over at the TTT party at StoneGable blog.

    • Thanks so much for the sweet compliments!!! I must have missed that tray! It sounds awesome! I am so happy you visited! Happy fall! ~Christy

  5. Christy, your home looks so lovely! I’m a sucker for hydrangeas and love how you’ve used them in your decor. I was cracking up when I saw the coffee filter wreath! I remember when you posted on Instagram while you were making it while watching Y&R! Please consider sharing your home tour at my link party “Stylish Friday Finds”. My readers would love to see it. Party goes live 8pm tonight.

  26. Hi Christy, Wow, your home is just amazing and you’ve done so many wonderful projects all over! I’m loving your pumpkin topiaries and the burlap ones are adorable. Definitely a decoration you should have out all the way to Christmas. Thanks for sharing all of this, it’s really beautiful!

  27. How beautiful!!! I love all the touches of Fall you added to your amazing home… makes me want to curl up on that porch and just… be!
    Thank you for sharing, I enjoyed it very much!

  28. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

  29. All beautiful Christy! You are so ready for Fall!! :) I am still in Summer mode (even if the weather is not completely cooperating with that!)

    Nancy

    • Thanks Nancy! A scheduled fall tour really forces you to get ready! Still so warm here! BUT I’m ready for my scarves! Happy weekend to you!

  30. Your home is lovely and so full of Fall. I must say I am partial to the shot with blue and white china.

    – The Tablescaper

  31. You have a beautiful home. I enjoyed seeing all your fall decorations. The front porch is so welcoming and I like your kitchen decor. Have a great week. Pamela

  32. Christy you know how much I love your beautiful home!! It looks fabulous all dressed up for Fall!

    • Thanks so much Martina! I hope you have been doing well. I bet you are starting to see some beautiful fall color up north! Happy Fall! ~Christy

  33. Christy, Your decorated porch is so colorful and it certainly sends a signal for a guest to come and sit a while.
    That piece of furniture where you have your Mother’s silver tray is absolutely so beautiful! Love the mirror above it too. Thanks for telling about the BH&G plates that are sold at Walmart..I went back to get some last year “after Halloween” and they were all gone. Again when you see something in Walmart, like Home Goods, buy it then, don’t wait till later. It might not be there. Our closest Walmart is 15 miles away. Living in a Sr. Citizens community, there is not too many residents that go to the trouble of decorating for Halloween since no Trick or Treaters are allowed in here..Maybe I can slip up to Walmart next Tuesday after I finish bowling. Those pumpkin plates could be used for salads or desserts. We have dessert parties to celebrate birthdays on our court with the ladies I hang around with. Wonder if BH&G has Thanksgiving/turkey plates like the pumpkin plates? I’m hosting a dessert party for one of the ladies in our court in November..great incentive to buy those plates and buying 8 of them does not break the pocketbook! Thanks for sharing your pictures of your beautiful home. It went down to 40 degrees here last night; guess it’s time to put the summer clothing in storage and drag out the long sleeve clothing. Also need to bring my spider plants inside.

    • Maybe we should suggest the turkey plates for BHG! Those would be fabulous!! What a fun dessert party celebration! It is finally cooling off here as well. 75 for a high today! Amazing!!! I hope you have a great fall! Big hug, Mrs. Betty!!!

  34. This is just beautiful Christy! You have certainly captured the spirit of fall! It is always a joy to visit your gorgeous home! Love love love! Cathy

    • Thanks sweet friend! I am so happy you stopped by! One day we are going to get together for a real like dinner out!!! Big hug!!!!

  35. Christy, your home looks amazing all decorated for fall! There are just too many wonderful vignettes to select a favorite but I did really love that lettering on your tool caddy!

    • Thanks so much Jane!!! I really loved that project. I can’t take all the credit! My 14 year old did all of the tool caddy painting. I did the lettering, distressing and waxing! She is a great helper!! So happy you stopped by! Happy Fall!!!

  36. Thank you for the tour! Your home is lovely. I adore your front porch and all of the fall decor you have decorated with. I really all of your wreaths.
    Patty at Home and Lifestyle Design

  37. Ahhhh!! I LOVE your front porch!!! AMAZING!!! Your whole home is gorgeous! Love all the fall decor!

  38. As always, your home is gorgeous! By far, my favorite shot is that of the lab on the porch! You have the dream Southern Living porch!

    • Thanks so much! You have my hubby to thank for that shot! I was out taking pics, and she was crying to come out with me! I took the opportunity and had her pose! She’s a spoiled rotten sweetie!! ~Christy

  39. I love your bright oranges and earthy colors. Right from the porch I knew your home would be special. You take all those fall colors and elements, and bring them together for a beautiful fall home! You’ve made your home so welcoming and relaxing. Blessings, Linda

  40. It all looks gorgeous, Christy! Your home is always lovely, but it really looks smashing all dressed for Fall. I love the way you’ve added special touches here and there along with your big displays in a few places. It all adds up to a huge impact! Thank you so much for the tour!

    • Thanks, Richella! I just love decorating for fall. It just speaks of warmth and family time. So looking forward to your tour! XXOO Christy

  41. You’re home is so gorgeous! The fall decor is beautiful!
    Leslie

  42. You have such a lovely home, Christy! Love your front porch and Lizzie! :)

  43. Girlfriend!!!! You have absolutely blown me away. I love your home, so I am not surprised I am blown away. :) I love all your vignettes and attention to every little detail. But I still catch my breath every time I see your kitchen and your hood. Your table and your countertops are perfect with Fall decor. I love your little banner hanging at the window too. I see you have a Yearling Cow head like I sell in my online shop. Isn’t he the cutest? :) Thank you so much for joining us for the All Things Home Fall Tour. Luv’ ya. xxoo

    • Thanks so much sweet, Barb!! I am so glad we were able to FINALLY meet up at Haven! I am so blessed and honored that you invited me to participate in that very first tour! What a ride! I just love fall! So can’t wait to see you tour. Hope you are getting some energy back! I just love Bessie! I purchased her gosh I think last fall. She’s a great conversation piece! Love ya! Christy

  44. What a gorgeous home! Southern elegance at it’s best, Christy! Your porch bids us such a warm welcome and is a taste of what’s to come inside your home!
    We have something in common… I am a BIG wreath repurposer! This is such a special treat! Looking forward to your banner diy! xo

  52. So very pretty! And so many handmade touches…it’s fantastic!

  53. Your Fall home is gorgeous, Christy and Lizzie is a doll!

  54. Beautiful! I think I have that exact wicker rocker on my front porch! Pottery Barn? It all looks so warm and inviting! Life to the full! Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle

    • Thanks!!!! Cool that it looks like Pottery Barn. Score! I got them at a local discount outdoor wicker store. It is resin! So easy to spray off all the yucky spring pollen!

  55. Wow, wow and wow! I am in love with your home. It looks gorgeous all decked out for fall. Don’t you just love that BHG fall line at Walmart! I have been eyeing those pumpkins plates and now I think I’ll have to run out and buy them. Great tour!

    • Thanks girl! Got to love that BHG line at Wal-Mart! Makes the trip so worthwhile…just a little something picked up while grocery shopping! Wink!!

  56. Wow! So many wonderful details to take in! Love those little burlap pumpkins and your white fireplace mantel really caught my eye. Thanks for sharing your lovely home!
