Today I’m very excited to be teaming up with some of my favorite bloggy friends for my first Blog Hop! We’ve been hard at work prepping our homes for fall, and now you get to see what we’ve been up to!
Happy Fall-i-Days from all of Us!

Yesterday, you saw my “simple spruce up” to our front porch; Today, I’m taking you on a little tour of our fall-i-fied entryway and family room. Come on in!
I still love the styling of our entry console, so instead of completely changing things up, I just added a few Fall touches, like the acorn in the glass cloche (I Mod Podge’d strips of book pages onto the the “belly” of the acorn), and rearranged the bottom shelf a bit. Also, please excuse the dust and dog hair underneath the table. The Sweeping Fairy doesn’t keep a regular schedule around our home (darn her).
Moving into our family room…
I updated our mantel (more on how I got here tomorrow) with some textures, colors and pieces that feel right for the season.
The low bookshelf by our stairs got fall-i-fied too:
I rearranged a few items on our side table. Aren’t those felted acorns adorable? Can acorns be adorable? Who cares; these are. I’ve had them on my Etsy wishlist for months, and decided I had to pull the trigger on them for this season. I purchased them from a shop called feltjar.
Even though it’s been 85 and humid here in Ohio (whaaaaaaa?), I still had to pull out our soft furry pillows and throw (on couch)! Oh, and owls, duh. If there was ever an “owl season,” this is it!
Thanks for stopping by! Please hop on over to see how these fabulous ladies are celebrating the Fall-i-Days!
I love the golds and neutrals! Beautiful!

I agree 100% about it being owl season. Also, I might need to hire you to come over and style my house. It’s no wonder you won that contest at Haven. Girl, you are a natural for style and arranging things. It’s all so artfully done (especially on that entryway console) and you’ve found such fantastic pieces to showcase. Also, I’m in love those felt acorns! Definitely a worthy investment. Thanks for sharing where you found them.
Also, the Sweeping Fairy has been strangely absent from our household, too. Hmmm…maybe I should fire her and find a new Sweeping Fairy. 😉
So honored to be a part of this hop with you, lady!

Thank you for your kind words, Lauren! I always feel like there’s room for improvement with my styling, but I am learning as I go!
What’s up with these Sweeping Fairies shirking their duties!?! If you find a reliable one, let me know!
