Fall Decorating

Good morning everyone. Hope all is well with you. In the time since I last posted, we have started harvest. It has been beautiful weather for it and it looks as if next will be also.  So strange to be this far along at the end of September.  We have our remodeling all done and I have slowly, and I do mean slowly, getting things back in their places.  I still have a partial box of fall goodies to put out, but I thought I would share some of what I have out.  This will be a post long on pics and short on words.

I went outside the other night trying to get a picture of the combines in the field because they looked so neat side by side in the dark field.  Well, I couldn't get those to turn out, but I snapped a couple of the moon and just loved them.  Thought I'd share it instead. 

That's it for today.  Next time I'll share some outside pics. I have alot of goodies on my selling blog.  If you have time, please stop by.  Have a wonderful day.

Take care!!

Remodel......Before & After

Hello. I seem to be have been caught in the same time warp many of you have.  Time has just gone somewhere while I try to get things done.  Our remodeling is done......yeah.  Now comes the cleaning and moving back......yuck.  But after that, the fun decorating part can start just in time for fall goodies to go up.  Here are a few before and after pics. It's hard to get a real feel for it because nothing is up and the lighting isn't the greatest.  Hopefully I can get better pics up when the decorating is done.  For those of you who don't know, we removed the pecan boards from our walls and replaced it with drywall, replaced the window trim and baseboard trim with old trim from DH's grandma's house that is being torn down.  This trim now matches the rest of the trim in our house.  We also added ceiling lights. The result is a much brighter, more farmhouse look.  We are very pleased. 

The old corner.

You can get a look at the window trim  It is pine and the rest of the house is oak, but color and style wise it is very similar.  I love the little corner pieces.

The bow window before....sorry about the glare. 

After.  It really stands out now.  Thinking about some tobacco cloth fabric draped somehow....... Jo Jo's favorite spot!!

Doors between the family and living room.  The old ones had bottle end glass in them.  This is from the living room view.....the room that was already done with the oak trim. 

The after doors.  This is from the family room view.  I had wanted french doors, but they are bi fold and they didn't recommend full glass as much as they would be used.  I was going to have grills also, but they made the panes really little and hard to clean.  Darn, now I have to keep the living room straightened up....never had to worry about that with the old glass. 

That's all for today. I am supposed to be in washing  walls and wood work getting ready to clean carpets.  I am also working on some orders so I need to get going.   I have added some new fall goodies to my selling blog so stop by if you get the chance.  Have a great day. Thanks for stopping by.
