I'm a happy RN married to a hardworking resident. We have recently become Carolina fans and are adding the color "carolina" blue to our wardrobe and home. I love the east coast and couldn't be happier living in hot, sticky climate. I was raised on a farm/ranch with two wonderful parents and three fun loving older sisters. I went to a one room country school house down the dusty dirt road with grand total of three in my class. Life in the country was rich, meaningful, and simple, just the way I like it. So from country farmgirl to coastal bell, here I am, living life and loving it!

My Fall Decor

I am finally getting some pictures up of my fall decor.  I have been loving fall this year.  After being sick all summer because I was pregnant the cooler weather (except for this week) and being able to be outside has been so refreshing.  If Jonah had his way he would live outside. That boy loves to play outside at all times and I don't mind being outside either.  We will take all we can get before it starts to get too cold to be out.  Here is my fall mantel and a few others.  

 The mantel did not turn out how I had envisioned.  There was a cute mantel I saw on someones blog that I tried to recreate but I was lacking in a few things and abundant in others.  Oh well this is how it turned out which at least I got something up there.

And the table was just a quick put together.  When mom was out here we went to the fabric store so I could pick out some fun fall fabric. The pieces on the mantel and what is on the table is what I came up with, and I had the burlap leftover from Mom and Dad's party this summer.

I found this wreath super on sale last year at the outlets.  I think I paid 10 dollars for it.  I was excited because it was cheap enough for me.  I have been wanting to make something for the door but just never got around to it.  This one works and I am pleased with it.

 My poor mum has died.  I don't know if the weather changing so much caused it to crump or if maybe I just didn't water it enough.  I don't know but I kind of want to replace it now!


  1. Looks good! Did you link up to anyone in blogland? I always see that option, but since I don't blog I haven't done it. I forgot about the wreath you got last year (I was with you). It's so fun!

    1. Thanks. The mantel got a little crazy but oh well I like the variety of things. I was thinking about linking up to someones' fall mantel but just never did it. Maybe for Christmas I will get it done.

  2. I really like your Fall decorations...good idea with the "Welcome" sign on the door!

    1. Thanks Maddie. I love fall and really got into the mood to decorate this year. Jonah and I went out to the pumpkin patch one day and had fun picking all the different sizes out!
