Happy Autumn!

I have so many little things to share with you, I've been adding little bits of Autumn here and there so I walked around taking pic of everything I wanted to show you all, maybe I'm avoiding the painting but oh well it was fun anyways, LOL. I changed my fireplace a lil bit, see my new plants on there, oops I forgot I was going to tie some brown ribbon bows on them before I took the pic, oh well not redoing it now, I'll put them on later!
I bought these brown pillows at Target (9.99) and added some of my vintage broches and a flower to the front of them, I love the brown with my white couches.
P.S. I'm washing my other slip cover so thats why I zoned in on the couch, if you could see the mess behind me, LOL!

Lulu wanted to say she sure missed everyone and Happy Autumn, actually I think I interupted her nap but is that not the funniest face!!

Some new curtains I've been playing with, they are linen curtain panels from Target, I just added some old lace thingys I had laying around.

A rug I got on clearance from Target for $6.98, cute isnt it, by the way it is an outside rug but I liked it so I'm keeping it inside for now.

and last but not least I bought these because I love the labels, LOL, although I did read that they were good products to use, again they were at Target, at least it makes cleaning more fun!

Hi Kelly...Trying to get into the Autumn mood here in Ohio. I have seen some trees starting to change but it is actually still a little muggy here today. Lulu is darling and that could not be a cuter picture of her! I am partial to flat faced dogs. Happy Autumn to you!~Hugs, Patti

I love the lace on the curtain panel tops!! Great idea- I am trying to think if I have enough of one kind of lace to do this on the guest room I just finished.

Always love looking at your pretty home!


Heather said...

everything looks great. I love what you did with the curtains. I'll have to remember that! Oh and I really like the J.R. Watkins products. They have a really nice natural deodorant- green tea/aloe. Works and smells great!

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

First off, Lulu is cracking me up!!! What an adorable face - one that needs to be held and kissed on!!! Give her some scratches behind the ears from me.

Kelly, your home looks amazing. I see that you are gravitating to the tone on tone look - that which I love! Great pillows!!! I think I need to look around Target a little better.

have a sweet day,

Nicolette said...

You have a lot of amazing pieces for the fall season. And how can we forget Lulu!

Oh, and Kelly, you're welcome at Furniture and Design Ideas at any time. Maybe we can even come up with some more fall touches for your house as well.

Hi Kelly!

I love all your new things! and the DR looks fabulous sweetie! I also love labels too :), If I see one I like, I have to buy it, lol! and what a neat idea to put the jewels on your pillows, Love it!!

Btw, I got the "sugar" candle at TJ Maxx by my house, I saw it, grabbed it and RAN like the wind :) LOL. I think it was like $5.99, pretty good and smells awesome too!

Have a good week sweetie! Hugs, Cyn xox

Just a little something from Judy said...

This post, once again is heaping full of creativity and inspiration. Lulu's face was the icing on the cake, as was the fact that you liked the labels...what does it matter what the product does. That made me smile. Thanks for a wonderful visit here today.

Rue said...

Hi Kelly :)

I love it all!! Everything looks perfect for Fall and that face on LuLu is priceless :)

Loved what you did on the hutch too!

Glad to hear your mom is doing okay :)

Hello! Thanks for visiting my blog!
I just took a tour around your site and I loooove your style! My husband and I of two years just bought our first house last November. As you can see it needs much TLC! We've done big projects around the house, but so far they've all been "behind the scenes" type projects. I'm just now getting to the fun cosmetic changes. By the way, the dinning room color is called 'Rice Grain' from Sherwin Williams. It's a light/medium tan. Nice meeting you! :)

Kelly your decor is beautifully presented. Enjoyed my first visit, & look forward to many more. Have a great weekend. TTFN ~Marydon

Kate said...

I have a J. R. Watkins catalog and I'm falling in love with their whole line of products!

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

lol I stumbled on the same dish soap for the exact reason. I loved the look of the bottle so I picked it up. Now I keep using it because it smells sooooo good and works well too. I even bought one for the camper. :)

fairmaiden said...

I like your new look...less shabby chic and more french country, it seems...I've been going in the same direction. I even bought dark brown fur and leopard print fur toss pillows for our Ikea white slip covered sofas too. Are yours hard to wash? I can't seem to get mine white again, maybe I need to use more bleach. What do you do? Yours look great!

Bellamere Cottage said...

I love your little Lulu....my little Ruby Mae PetuniaBelle is 1/4 English Bulldog...1/4 Boston and 1/2 Frenchie...she makes that kind of face too. Are they not hilarious? Our neighbors have an English named Emma....we LOVE her.

I just bought the Watkins dish soap too...did you like it? I wasn't impressed. Sad, because I liked the label too...and the smell!

Your corner kitchen cabinets are just too cute and I'm jealous about that darling crown rug!


KarenB said...

I love the rug and the labels. I'm headed to Target tomorrow, I'll have to look around.
