Open House Sundays Premiere - Tour a Different House Each Week!

Welcome to a new feature on my blog! Each week from October through February I will be sharing a different home tour, I don't know about you but I love open houses!!

This week's tour is a fall tour from Jeanie at Create & Babble - enjoy!

This is my first home tour and I must admit that I'm a wee bit nervous ; )


You see, I thought that maybe readers only wanted to see home tours that show off big, expansive, beautiful homes with wide wrap-around porches that are gorgeously furnished; have large, expertly landscaped, manicured rolling lawns with breathtaking views . . .

. . . and grand entrances welcoming visitors.


But I think I was wrong.


Pretty doesn't just exist in big, fancy homes. Pretty can be found in any home.

Even in a little, empty-nester's townhome.

By adding light, inexpensive touches of Fall, every home can be very pretty. Simply pretty. We all like simple decorating, right? As simple as throwing a pom-pom fringed throw over a favorite chair . . .

Fall Home

. . . or placing silk flowers in burlap baskets and painted mason jars.

Pulling out and dusting off last year's Fall Crafts. Or even doing something a little quirky - like adding silk leaves to the curtains ; )


Or placing a warm, soft, and cozy plaid blanket on your sofa can be pretty, too.

Something as simple as changing out the brightly colored summer pillows for earthy-toned ones.

The pumpkins. Read how to make pretty velvet pumpkins for your home.


. . . hang the pretty fall flower wall art that used to be a summer flower.


Add inexpensive leaf appliqued towels to the powder room.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. I hope you enjoyed your stay and found a little inspiration for decorating your home for Fall.

Thank you for sharing your home with us Jeanie!  What a pretty home it is too!  Visit Jeanie over at CREATE & BABBLE.
