How beautiful! I just love Fall decorating. It's so much nicer to look at your pictures than the ones we have been seeing on the news of our post hurricane area. *sigh*

Thank you for adding a bright spot to the day.

Hi Kelli! I was looking forward to seeing how you were going to decorate for autumn. You didn't disappoint me. The pictures of your kitchen are beautiful. Your family is lucky to have such a talented wife and mother.

Have a wonderful and blessed day. :-) Debbi

Jennie said...

Oh how PRETTY Kelli. I really must try to do something similar in my kitchen this year to ring the changes a little. I just love those little acorn salt and pepper shakers too. You have a real flair for decorating.

Sarahs Home said...

I love your decorating. You seem to get such lovely "Fall" decor over in America. Over here in England it is unheard of and nobody would think of decorating for "Autumn". You have some wonderful ideas on here.

Hi Kelli,

Love the fall look in your kitchen! The wall pocket is is cute and that squirrel s&p shaker is adorable!! I haven't been in a Cracker Barrell yet, but everyone always finds such cute things there (there's one about 20 minutes from me but my DH never wants to eat there?).

Adrienne said...

Hi Kelli - Your kitchen looks so nice. Cozy and home-y. Wish I lived close enough to stop by and see it 'for real'! I especially love that little squirrel salt and pepper. Thanks for sharing your home with us. ~Adrienne~

Hadias said...

The little squirrel holding his acorns is so cute.

I haven't pulled out my fall decor yet. I had the ingenious idea to store them in a empty suit case in our storage closet back in the Spring.

Now I don't feel like unpacking the closet to get to the suitcase with is strategiaclly placed way in the back of the closet.

It seemed like such a good idea back then.

So I'll just stop in to enjoy your pictures for a few more weeks. Thanks for sharing.

TJ said...

This is beautiful Kelli! I got my decorating done, only to find that my kids are enjoying tearing apart my centerpiece and bouquet. Oh well... the 90 degree weather is making it hard to feel Fall yet. I'll have some time to hunt down the gourds and flowers and replace them before it gets cool.

Thanks for sharing! I love how big your kitchen is

Dani said...

Kelli I LOVE your blog. I read it from England. I love the way you live your life, its like that famous quote, "preach the gospel, if necessary use words," Anyone reading your blog and seeing your lifestyle can't help but find your true Christianity appealling.

Your decorations are lovely. I love the jars of pear honey on the hutch...so homey!!

onthecreek said...

Your kitchen looks so fallish. I just love your decorations. I'm slowly getting mine out. The squirrels are so cute. I've got apples in my kitchen year round so it's easy to make it look fallish with a few extra things.
Happy decorating!

Tina Leigh said...

Kelli I love your fall decor! Everything looks so warm and cozy. I really like the ribbon idea. I went to Walmart today and they had the fall Oreos out. You know they are WAY better than the regular ones. I got 4 packs!! lol Tell me something...I see you have your tart burner out...how many times do you re-use your tarts and where do you get yours?

Hi Kelli, Your fall decor is so pretty! I love the towel rack and towels on the island, and the squirrel s&p is so cute! I need to tie ribbon around my candy jars if that works to keep little hands out of it! :) ~Rhonda

Kalianne@BygoneBeauty said...

I LOVE your squirrel salt and pepper shaker - sooo cute! Decorating for the seasons is not commonly done in Australia (at least not in these parts). It's a lovely idea I'd like to adopt!

Mimi Sue said...

What a darling kitchen. Your fall stuff is fabulous. I especially like those jars with the ribbon. They'd make cute little gifts. I'm going to have to try to make that pear honey. It sounds delish.

Stephanie said...

Kelli,
I LOVE autumn but must be frugal w/ decor. You inspire me to change w/ the seasons. Any frugal ideas? I don't want my home to look "cheap" just cozy. Yours looks absolutely fantastic.
So glad you and yours are doing great and that Ike missed you.

Becca said...

And it actually feels a little bit fall-ish around here these days! (I also live in the Dallas area.)

What a beautiful job you did. I have never thought of decorating my kitchen for the seasons. You have inspired me!

Jenn4him said...

Beautiful as always! My question for you is how do you organize and store all your seasonal decorations?
Also, I am so glad that your weekend was not too bad with the weather. Sounds like we in Indiana got Ike worse than the Dallas area! Too funny!
Jenn

Debbie said...

I love all the autumn pizzazz you created all around your kitchen! It made my eyes light up, so pretty! I love corn candy this time of the year and especially like the way the ribbon dresses it up. My sis-in-law had her corn candy mixed with peanuts this year and I swear it was like having a Payday candy bar.

Blessings - Debbie

Can I be you when I grow up? Seriously, my family would love it if I had half of the creativity you do, Kelli.

If I ever make it up to visit with you, maybe some of your homemaking goodness will rub off on me!

Love ya, Friend!

Are those crab apples in the last photo? We have a tree in the front yard in Memphis that is just loaded with fruit.
The towel bar on the end of the cabinet gives me an idea for doing the same in the new house. I'll be doing some Autumn decorating myself this week even though most of my stuff is somewhere else. I'll share what little I do next week.

Julie said...

Wow, I am commenter 97!! How you you manage to even read them all? Anyway, everything is lovely. My autumn decorations are still sitting in Rubber Maid containers in the basement.

I really do remember those Cracker Barrel squirrels. I had to run out and get some myself. I checked out CB last week but fortunately for my pocketbook there wasn't anything I couldn't live without.

aswewalk.com said...

So beautiful! Don't you just love Cracker Barrel for seasonal decor? Also, love the "cabinet" your oven is in. I've never seen one like that--very cozy.

Oh, I just love your blog and have so enjoyed the decorating corner. What I like about it? It's so simple, cozy and warm. Thanks for some new ideas for the holidays! God bless.

Come visit me sometime at my blog. I love to write devotional type articles, so you probably won't find lots of decorating tips. Still learning how to navigate my way around blogging.
