This fall tour is not at all about pumpkins.
Sorry if you were ready for pumpkins.
Instead its about some of my favorite fall-ish things…cowboy hats and boots…red plaid blankets…and Elvis.
Ok, Elvis isn’t really fall-ish, but its my house and I’ll do what I want to.
If you want pumpkins and leaves and all that jazz, check back in a few weeks when I’ve actually had time to remember where I stored all that decor from last year.
A huge thanks to Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for organizing this Fall Tour of Homes. She is so on top of her game – don’t miss her tour. If you are new here from A Thoughtful Place or another blog on the tour, welcome! Fair warning that I’m not near as talented as all those other ladies and also don’t speak as eloquently as they do. I’m also just weird. And random. You’ve been warned.
So, let me tell you something.
I love country music.
You may have already figured that out.
But in the fall, I love it a little bit more.
Which I didn’t even know was possible.
I don’t even know why I love it a little more in the fall besides the fact that I drink a bit more Jack in the fall and what pairs better with Jack than country music?
Nothing I tell you. Nothing.
So in the fall, instead of leaving my grandfather’s cowboy hat tucked safely away with the vintage cowboy blanket, I pull them both out.
And decorate with them.
Random? Yes. But it makes me smile.
And I might play a little bit of musical lamps.
And put the cowgirl lampshade in the living room.
And mix in a little red and gray plaid with another green velvet pillow.
Because you can’t have enough comfy green velvet pillows.
And to top it all off…
We’ll put Elvis against a random abstract circle wall beside red watercolor lips.
Because every home needs a little Elvis in their lives – whether its fall-ish or not.
Am I right or am I right?
P.S. That abstract circle wall is the stairwell! I finally figured out what to do with it – it only took me five months – more on it soon!
What are your favorite fall-ish decorating pieces? Besides pumpkins!
The next tour stop is Style Your Senses – I promise Mallory won’t let you down!
