Embracing Fall! Day 5: Home Decor’ and a Little Giveaway!

Welcome to day 5 of my “Embracing Fall” series. I hope you’ve been enjoying it.

Today I just want to show you a little of my Autumn decor’. In the past I’ve gotten a little crazy with the scarecrows and had a moment of silliness with my decorating. But this time I tried to change things up a bit. I actually bought a few new things to add to my decor’ and I only used 2 scarecrows in my whole decorating adventure. Yay, me!

Here’s my dining room table. Because you wouldn’t know it was my dining room table unless I told you right?


This is the new stuff I bought this year. I purchased it all from Old Time Pottery. I really like the votive holders.

I used some corn feed to put in the bottom of it and then stuck a votive on top. I thought it looked kinda cute.


I added a little something over here by the shoe cabinet. You can check the before and after on this area HERE if you’d like.


Here’s a little place by the front entryway. Complete with empty tea light holder.


And last but not least, my Autumn mantel. You can learn how I made the Autumn banner in day 2 of my series.


Here’s the burlap wreath I made, lookin’ all fallish and stuff. You can check that out HERE. I think it looks great in my grandmother’s old window. IMG_6208

Well, that brings us to the end of the Embracing Fall series. I hope you had fun because I sure did.

But wait, there’s more. Let’s wrap this week up by giving away a $5.00 gift card to Starbucks. That way you can have your favorite Fall drink on me. I recommend the Pumpkin Spice Latte’. YUM! Giveaway is closed.

If you want a laugh you can watch the video of my friend Lisa and I making our own version. The Godiva Pumpkin Spice coffee I talked about yesterday would be PERFECT in that recipe. I’m just sayin’.

So in order to win the gift card you must have a valid email address and leave a comment on this post. If you want extra entries go back and comment on the other posts in the series. I will tally up each comment as an entry and pick a name first thing tomorrow morning.

Have a lovely day my friends.


P.S. There’s also another giveaway in my day one post. So look for that.
