Fall Has Landed in Our Family Room!

Hey everyone!  I hope ya'll are having a great weekend.  My "To-Do" list is mainly inside today as our temps have decided to climb back into triple digits -- OUI!  I'm hoping this is just a very short trend, because we have more company coming this next week from the northwest, and I would truly hate to see a "melt-down!"

Anyway, today I thought I would share our family room all dressed up for Fall!  Hope you enjoy!

This shows the "center of attention" area of our family room.  This is a nice built-in space, but the entertainment space on the left was intended for one of the antiquated, behemoth TVs.  The Man already has a project in the works that will add a cabinet & bring the flat screen forward, but that project is 4th or 5th down on his list.  The 3 large baskets across the bottom 
hold toys & games for the "Grands."


The Mantel & Fireplace
The grapevine cone trees were new purchases this year.  I added the lights & leaves.  The large mirror is also new -- a sale purchase from Kirklands. 


I found these little guys at HL (on sale, of course) and thought they would be the perfect addition
to the mantel.


Sparkly pumpkins sitting on candlesticks with pretty bows make me smile!

I was even able to get some mesh ribbon before it was all gone (totally missed out last year)!  I love
it combined with the wired, plaid ribbon.

I had the wheat & twigs from last year.

My "TP Pumpkin" (if you want to see how I made this, you can go HERE) is quite comfy in this
big old wooden bowl surrounded by my scavenged pinecones.

                                             
 I just love looking at this scene from the kitchen as I 
prepare dinner.



This corner got a very simple Fall update.



My game table got dressed up, too, but it's all on a tray for easy removal.

My inspiration for creating these cute apothecary jars came from Ashley at Shanty 2-Chic HERE.  She has a great tutorial.  These little cuties won't be going away for quite awhile as I plan to change out the ribbon and the contents to fit my Christmas decor.  I already have the "J" & "Y" painted.....lol!

This mini baker's rack had been residing in my kitchen prior to the makeover (you can see the kitchen reveal HERE) & was moved temporarily during painting and construction.  Now we've decided we like this new location on the short wall leading into our dining room.   So here is where it will stay!

So that's it for now.  Who knows when I might get the "urge" to tweak!  Thanks so much for stopping by and please come again soon!
