It's Fall at the B Farm

 It's Fall at the B Farm...sort of. The temperatures were cooler this weekend for our visit ( yay, for cool fronts coming through!), so much so, I was actually chilly Sunday morning. My husband thought I was hilarious for feeling cold. Really? Doesn't he know after upper 90's/100 degree weather, 70 feels downright frigid? lol! Felt so good! Anyway, I'm looking forward to the leaves changing color -sometime in November - ha! but I can make the house look like Fall before then.

So I brought my Fall decor stuff with me to decorate. It was fun to do for the first time here. I started at the entry with my new entry table, then moved on to the fireplace, and made a wreath for the wreath holder I'd made. All done in between breaks of staining the bed frame and sanding the dresser. Enjoy the pictures!

The table also got some faux pumpkins and gourds added to it and the kitchen counter got a Fall arrangement added to the wooden bowl. Fall is definitely my favorite season! Now I just need to do my city home....

Enjoying the cooler temperatures,


  1. Gorgeous. I love all of your wonderful fall decor. So pretty. Thanks tons for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

    1. And thank you Marty for hosting! I wanted time to look at each post, they all looked fabulous!

  2. Your fall scenes are getting me in the mood to decorate! I love how you have the gate as your backdrop, very cute! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your sweet comment on my faucet/bucket light!

  3. Oh forgot to say, I'm now your newest follower!

  4. Oh have really done lots of Fall decorating already...I have not put out one Fall item yet...hopefully next week....All of your Fall vignettes are beautiful..Love the wreath on that vintage post...great wreath holder!!!

    1. Thanks Shirley! Since we're only at the farm on weekends, I wanted to get it decorated as soon as should see my city home...poor thing is feeling neglected! :)

  5. Wow! This is stunning. I just adore how you style things. All of the autumnal colors with the little splashes of freshness (the blue bird, the green watering can, etc.) keep it simple but incredibly interesting all at once.

    1. Thanks, Jess! Sometimes I feel like I'm not very good (when will I learn not to compare my style to someone else's? ) :) I appreciate the encouraging words!

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright.

And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really, really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option.

I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust them…

Thanksgiving sign

I can't stand it...I was going to post this next week but I'm dying to show it off! I know, I know, now I will have to come up with a new post for next week. That's ok. I'm having fun with this and so enjoy it. You make it so much more so! So thanks for reading and leaving comments. I am thankful for you! Anyway, here's my farm mantel post:

My mantel needed help. Everything I placed there got lost against the brick. Painting it isn't an option - that was voted down very emphatically! However, I painted the trim around the fireplace to match the surrounding walls and ah, that looks better - blends instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

 Also, it doesn't quite line up with the fireplace. Or the fireplace isn't centered on the wall. Who designed this anyway?! I can't tell you how many quirky things we've found in this house. I think it's  called character! ha.

To help it look better, I decided it needed a wooden sign. I picked a favorite sc…

Cozy Christmas Farmhouse at The B Farm

Hello my friends! Today I'm sharing The B Farm all cozied up for Christmas as part of the Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour. It's five days of Christmas goodness - I hope you will pop over and visit the other ladies. I'll share the links at the bottom of my post.

This year, I'm crazy about plaid! What? You too? To me, it just says "cozy" and "homey".

To begin, I dressed the table with red plaid placemats and red napkins from Audrey of Timeless Treasures. The plaid stockings are actually silverware holders my friend Susan gave me a couple of years ago. So cute!
The red pillows on the bench were wrapped with red and white plaid ribbon. They remind me of presents! The green plates with pinecone motif were a Good Will find many years ago.

Then in the kitchen window, I hung some crocheted lace also from Audrey. It's not plaid but it says farmhouse cozy to me!

Isn't it pretty?

The cute red and white checked apron (another wonderful item from Audrey) han…
