Today we are taking a break from fashion, and this post is all about our Fall home!
I absolutely love sneaking little peeks into people’s homes, so if you’re like me, today’s post will be right up your alley. Grab a cup of coffee, snuggle up under a warm blanket, and settle in for lots of little peeks and hopefully a little inspiration as well.
Now, you need to know that I keep things pretty simple over here. I of course love making my home cozy and festive, but I like to do it without breaking the bank and without having to keep a ton of things in storage! And I only decorate the family room and kitchen since those are the areas that we spend most of our time in. By focusing on those two areas, I get the most bang for my buck.
And speaking of bang for your buck….
Okay, let’s get on with the tour!
OUR FALL HOME
I’m going to really let the pictures do the talking. I will of course link the items I picked up at Macy’s, and if any of the other items shown have a story, I’ll share those as well.
You’ll see today that I love to incorporate both old and new items into our home. Lots of the pieces you will see today have been collected over time. Fair warning, I love antique tins, antique tole trays, and both old and new wooden boards. #youcantsayididntwarnyou
Let’s start in the heart of the home, the kitchen!
Y’all know we love our dogs like crazy over here. So yes, I bought a golden retriever plate. I mean, there were two goldens on the plate and it looked like Fall to me with the field scene and brown floral accents. I literally could not not buy it. And great news, the entire Spode Woodland Dog collection is 50% OFF right now!
We’re 3 pictures in, and you’ve already seen 2 wooden trays.
I picked up this wooden tray with metal handles at Macy’s, and I like how it anchors the topiary, the candle, and the mini white pumpkin for this little vignette. I also use this tray for cheese boards when we have company over. But hey, when you have a tray this pretty, there’s no reason to keep it in the cabinets!

Do y’all love new dish towels as much as I do? A fresh new set of dish towels brings me way too much joy. I mean, a new dish towel or a new candle can inspire me to clean my entire house!!! Is that just me?

When it comes to wooden boards, I love them all. I love all shapes, all sizes, and all colors. I’ve found that not only do they make great display pieces that anchor little vignettes, I of course use them for serving food when needed as well.
This is the same tray that you saw above in my butler’s pantry, but it also makes the perfect appetizer board. Macy’s has a delicious selection of food products, and I put together a simple appetizer platter with some favorites.
Click HERE for the entire selection of Stonewall Kitchen products (ALL ON SALE!) that ranges from stew starters, jams and jellies, mustards, scone mixes, and everything in between. The white bowl in the back is full of the ultimate bar mix. The block of cream cheese is covered with roasted garlic onion jam in the back and the hot pepper jelly up front, and the sea salt crackers make a perfect vessel for the cream cheese and jam combos. EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS.
I’ve found that wooden trays and cutting boards are also perfect for leaning up against a tile backsplash to both create height and hide electrical outlets. My wooden boards are a mix of old and new, all purchased at Macy’s or antique stores over the years.
Click HERE for Macy’s selection of wooden boards and serving pieces. There are lots of beautiful pieces to choose from, and they are always adding new products online. I really love this one with the rope handles.
You first saw this wood tray and wire bread basket when I shared the fantastic Campfire Brie recipe I’d found on Pinterest back in August. If you like ooey gooey cheese, fresh basil and tomatoes, balsamic glaze, and crusty bread….click HERE for a great recipe and some pretty food pictures!
For Fall, I took the bread basket, and I lined up some miniature pumpkins inside. Easy and festive.
You first saw the knife set when I shared our simple steak recipe with y’all this summer. Click HERE to see how Chris grills a perfect boneless Ribeye steak every single time.
The little green wooden stand and the painted paper mache bowl are Round Top finds. Every time I look at them, I think of the wonderful weekend I spent with my friends in a quirky little bed and breakfast in the hill country.
I think my kitchen table is my favorite Fall corner in my home. I layered table cloths on top of each other (I love to layer my clothes and my home accessories), and the burlap table runner added some great texture. This runner is 40% OFF right now, and then an additional 20% OFF with the code SHOP.
I gathered pieces I already had around the house, and I piled some fresh Fall flowers and some colorful pumpkins in together to make a perfectly festive centerpiece. I love how it looks rustic and isn’t too fussy.
The red bucket is a sap bucket I picked up at Round Top, and the wooden stand and the tall candlestick (topped with a mini orange pumpkin) are both from Magnolia.
My light fixture is no longer available, but I sure do love this one.
I purchased the chalkboard a couple of months before we moved into this house. It was about a day after Chris told me that I needed to “stop buying stuff for the new house until we are actually in the new house.”
I mean, I think it was clear that he couldn’t have been talking about this amazing chalkboard. I clearly needed it. I’ve looked for similar chalkboards for years to share with y’all, and I’ve never found a great one. I’ll keep looking, but there are some fun chalkboards at Macy’s HERE.

When I saw that this pumpkin canvas had one of my favorite Bible verses on it, it flew into my cart. And it’s 40% OFF right now!
Macy’s has an enormous selection of rugs. Click HERE to browse through them all if you need one for your kitchen, your family room, your dining room, your bedroom, or anywhere else in your home!

This metal and wood tiered stand (40% OFF RIGHT NOW!) will remain on display all year long, but it gets dressed up with fresh mini pumpkins and colorful squash for Fall. And we always have plenty of Honeycrisp apples on hand. I mean, really…are there any other kind?

In addition to looking like Fall, I love our home to smell like Fall. This Rustic Pumpkin candle fills up the house with a yummy scent and has us wanting to snuggle up and get cozy. The tin it comes in is darling too.
The red box was another antique store find. I love it all year, but I love it the most when I fill it with poinsettias for Christmas!

Our sectional is a combination of tweed and leather. I couldn’t find one like it to link, but you can click HERE to browse Macy’s sectional selection.
We love our round coffee table, and I’ve linked a similar one below.
This is a high traffic area, and the rug that we bought when we moved in the house 5 years ago needed replacing. I searched online, this was the only rug I ordered, and it worked!
And this rug is an INCREDIBLE VALUE right now! It’s 50% OFF, and then it’s an additional 15% OFF with the code SHOP. The code brings this $223 rug all the way down to $95! Many of their rugs are on super sale, so click HERE to browse their vast rug selection!
I hope you enjoyed the little peeks into our home today!
And I hope you picked up some ideas here and there to help cozy your homes up for Fall.
If only my home would always be as clean as it is when I’m photographing it for the blog.
In closing, I thought I would include some pics of the pups enjoying the space.
Charlie (with a bad haircut) on the left and Buddy on the right. The boys were patiently waiting for a treat.
I tell ya, these two are the coziest and snuggliest fellas you could ever imagine.
