Fall Tour

Come on in!  
I'm delighted that you have stopped by on Day 3 of the Fall in Love with Texas Blog Hop!
Do you remember those cartoons where the characters were stranded walking in a desert
 until, at last, they came to an oasis?  Suddenly, everything was perfect.
That's how fall feels to me after four really hot months in Texas.  When I ordered this "hello FALL" pillow from T.J. Maxx this summer, the temperature outside was stuck in the nineties.  The pillow arrived in just a few days. At first, I intended to put it away for a while.  Instead, I decided to tuck it in a corner by the fireplace as a little tease of the cooler days ahead.





Thank goodness, autumn has now arrived here for real.  Bring on the pumpkins!





This is the area off of our family room that I like to call the "sunroom."








Fall also brings a few small changes in the basket on the kitchen island.



I shared this fall table in a recent post.

And of course there are some pumpkins outside, too.
Hope to see you again soon!
Today's tour continues:

  7. Everything looks so perfectly Fall-ish, Eilis! I love your pillows, your table, your scale with the pumpkin, your kitchen tray, and your sugar mold with the mini pumpkins (I have one of those, too, and I'm going to copy your idea!). Thank you for sharing your heart and home with us.

    1. Hi Kitty! Copy away. I copied it from a darling little store. I already had the mold, but bought the cute little faux pumpkins there.

    1. Hi Laura,
      I love that hutch, too. It was perfect in breakfast room two houses ago. I stored it in my craft room in the last house, since there was no wall for it. I turned the "card room" of this house into my "sunroom" as an excuse to display it again. It is so fun to decorate.

  13. Hi Eilis, your home is gorgeous and you have decorated for fall beautifully. Love your hutch and the neutral tones. So inviting and welcoming. Truly magazine worthy. I must go back and revisit it all again. Love it! Have fun touring this week. xo

    1. Susan and Bentley,
      Thank you so much. I guess fall in Texas is more a state of mind than an absolute guarantee of cool weather!

  22. Eilis, your home is lovely! I would love to cook in that kitchen of yours. '-)
    The hutch full of white ironstone and the touches of eucalyptus and baby boo pumpkins is most attractive. Beautiful styling and your tablescape is as well. Thanks for sharing. Happy Fall!

  26. Eilis,
    You have a beautiful arrangement on your kitchen island. Your kitchen has such a wonderful French Country design. In the background of the island, I see a gorgeous whitewashed/limed wooden door with an arched raised panel. Your range in the arched stone alcove also caught my eye. Your white stoneware paired with the white pumpkins is the perfect backdrop for your freshly painted blue pumpkin.

    Happy Fall....

  39. Ellis, Your home is so inviting for fall and I love all of your fall touches. Your hutch is eyecatching with all your ironstone collection, pumpkins and greenery. Those pumpkin plates are adorable and your centerpiece is creative. I want a dough bowl. Don't know what happened to my grandmothers but I wish I had it.
    Your bar vignette is very striking. I must copy your idea.
