Fall Flowers Around the House

I can't believe it's November already. That means the holidays are fast approaching - as in full-steam ahead, don't blink, just around the corner quick. Therefore, I know I need to get the house ready for Thanksgiving followed soon by Christmas!

To me, nothing brings a touch of home to a house like flowers. Since the farm is only a weekend place, I use silk florals but I would love to use fresh flowers. How pretty is this arrangement in a mason jar?
And with time at a premium this time of year, what better way to get those pretty flowers than to have them delivered? BloomNation has some beautiful selections - if you haven't heard of BloomNation before, they are an online marketplace that supports local florists through their flower delivery service. What a great way to bring in the beauty of fresh florals!

For now though, I have to use what works best for me: thus on the fireplace, a thrifted picnic basket holds a bouquet of mixed silk flowers and dried naturals:

The coffee table has my book page pumpkin on a wooden stand surrounded by sunflowers, leaves, and berries:

A large metal basket near the entryway holds more flowers and berries:

And on the table, a wooden dough bowl holds a simple arrangement of sunflowers with berries and a mini pumpkin:

I love how the flowers, Fall leaves, and berries add a warm and homey touch to my decor. And before I know it, it will be time to change it out for Christmas! But for now, I am loving my Fall flowers.


  1. I love fall flowers. :)

    They are the BEST!!!!!!!!

    Love your sunflowers....totally remind me of fall!

    Happy day friend!

    1. Thanks, KariAnne! Fall truly is my most favorite time of year, followed closely by Christmas. Those sunflowers are almost as good as the real thing. ;)
      Have a great day!

  2. I love fall bouquets too! The warm colors are so pretty. You have some beautiful little vignettes set up. I especially love the book page pumpkin and the dough bowl arrangement! I wish I could find some silks as pretty as yours. I just haven't seen much this year. Hope you're having a great week!

    Hugs, Vicky

  3. I am loving your Fall flowers, too, Cecilia. I love the warm, earthy colors of Fall and they make me want to hunker down and prepare for the winter-to-come. Love all your arrangements and LOVE the dough bowl. xo Diana

  4. Love your fall decorating, Cecilia. I think every room needs something growing in it (or appearing to grow!) I do a mix of silk, dried, and real that makes me happy without breaking the bank :) You're a great decorator!

    1. Thank you, Diana! I love the real deal but I wouldn't get to enjoy/take care of them so silk it is. At least, those have come a long way and most look very real.
      Just so you know, you are showing as a no reply blogger. :-)

  5. Ohhhh Cecilia! These flowers are gorgeous, and you're so has come a very long way in the last few years. I remember when they looked like plastic from a mile away, now you almost have to touch them to know. Your dough bowl is lovely, as are all your arrangements. I know the first one isn't yours, but me wanty ;).

  6. Hi Cecilia,
    I hadn't heard of Bloom Nation, I like that they support local florists.
    Such pretty photos of all of your floral arrangements and vignettes. Love that dough bowl and your book page pumpkin.
    Have a wonderful rest of your week!

    1. Thanks, Kimberely! Me too- it's good to support local. The pumpkin was easy to do. I'd like to make a couple of more someday. Have a good rest of the week too!

  7. Your book page pumpkin is wonderful! I love all of the pretty fall bouquets!

  8. Beautiful! I, too, am loving the book page pumpkin. Fall is my favorite season. Perhaps because it's such a relief after a TX summer, but mostly because of the rich warm colors. Happy November!

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…

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…

Color Me Happy - Adding Color Back To The House

I've enjoyed our new colorful living room so much.
 The touches of red, green and blue really bring the room to life.

It made me realize that trying to do neutral wasn't me even though I love the look in other people's homes. Therefore, I have embarked on a mission to add color back into my house.

I already had the red pillows and red plaid placemats for the dining area. I also made the red plaid curtain this past year.  My wall is full of colorful pictures and art.

 I found the flowers on clearance at JoAnn's. Yay for clearance! It will be fun to have different colorful looks for the seasons.

For the kitchen, I decided to add colorful plates and what's more perfect than Fiestaware?  I have very fond memories of my mom's turquoise set especially the tea pitcher and salt & pepper shakers.

I knew there was a vendor at the Canton First Monday Trade Days that sold Fiestaware. I had bought a red pitcher a couple of years back. So in July, dinner plates came home…
