Fall In My Vintage Style Office...

Every grown woman should have a "Mom Cave"...
A place that is all her own.
This one is mine... pretty much.
It was the "Formal Dining Room" for the first five years.

Sweet Corner Display with Newly Painted Vintage Chair

Just a quick post today sharing a painting project.
This lovely old chair is a new addition.
I had it in our bathroom upstairs.
But for Fall I moved it down to the office to hold my large cactus. 

 This area is fun to decorate.
Definitely my whimsy side shows up here!
But I love the old lace and vintage printed cards and fans. 
The chair was a salvage gift from a friend.
I recovered the seat and painted it a light cream milk paint.

Welcome back my dears...

Bits of Vintage Bling For Fall...

 Welcome back dear readers and friends.
Today's post is about adding some Vintage Bling to your fall decor.
To me decorating is fun... never too serious.
So I find inspiration in just about everything I see.
One thing I love to decorate with is vintage style jewelry.
I loved all the soft lace on my heirloom gown... but I she needed some bling.
This reproduction necklace was a Ebay find for only $3.
It is a bit too much for me to wear... but it is perfect for my sweet lady!
Adding that bit of antique gold and sparkle.

Rustic Fall Family Room in Neutrals with Burlap Accents

Hello again.  It feels like forever since I have done a home decor post!  I will be starting my room by room Fall Home Tour today with our Family Room. I have so much to show you! 

This is the one room that has not been redone since we built the house in 2006 (besides the new flooring last summer.) 
This is really the only room in the house that still has a lot of country accents.  It is hard to get good photos in this room.  It is almost like a sun room.  It gets a ton of light during the day.  My plants love it.

Introducing Dessa... Our Baby Boston Terrier Puppy

 A month ago today life changed here at the lake...
In a good way... we have a new addition....
A sweet Boston girl named Dessa.
 She was the tiniest little four pounds of love.  Instantly head over heels.
We are dog people.... she is one of my kids.

Starting To Add Fall Touches in my Cottage Kitchen

Okay, it is {almost} the end of August and although some of you are hanging on to summer with all your might... I have been hit by the "Fall Bug".  It's this dang weather, it has been so cool in the mornings... it feels like Fall.
So, I added just a bit to my little wall hutch and country pantry.
Most of my fall gatherings are darker colors that matched the old color scheme.  Never fear...  I have plans to keep it light and fresh for Autumn.  These cute beige pumpkins will fit the bill.
 I am planning on doing a green, cream and rose theme for Fall in most of the house.
So I cut some of my real hydrangea blooms and placed them in the display to dry.  I try to do this every year.  If you cut them with a bit of color, they will dry a lighter version of the same tones.

Adding Inexpensive Crystals and a DIY Chandelier

 Welcome back my dears...
 I am sorry to be missing so long.
Almost two weeks since I have shared a post!
Been busy with back to school and HS Girls Golf season.

 Today I am sharing a bit of the bling and new things in the kitchen.
I am such an EBay shopper... 
I just love how many things you can find there.
So a few weeks ago I got on an hanging crystals kick and bought them by the buckets.
Well, not quite... but more than enough to add a good bit of bling here!

Soft, Romantic Vintage-Style Corner Display

 Well my summer of change continues....
I am now on to the Living Room... I may need help.
When I get on a roll.... it is a bit crazy I confess.
 So today's post is actually in the corner of my office.  The sweet antique wash stand was being used as a side table in the Living Room.  I switched it out and now it is in a new vintage style display.
 Is there any more classic than milk glass and antiques furniture?
I love my little wash stand and its lovely patina.
It was my Momma's for years and I snatched on to it.
