I thought I would invite you all over for a fall home tour before we get busy with Thanksgiving and Christmas:-)

I love everything about autumn -- cool days, clear blue skies and the amazing colors nature offers. I also love getting the house ready for the coming winter. That means bringing out the down comforters, flannel sheets and cozy throws. I started in the master bedroom and added some bold color to the mix this year.

I generally don't share much about my family life, but in reality, it's the most important aspect of my life, besides my faith. We had such a wonderful family weekend...very simple, but full of love, laughter and fun.

As much as Luis and I are enjoying photography, I was excited to get an email from Easy Canvas Prints asking if I wanted to review a canvas. That was an easy "yes" as we are planning on offering them for sale in my shop.

Fall is definitely the time Luis and I like to go out and shoot the changing landscape here in the mountains. You just never know what you're going to get and foggy mornings can make for some great shots.
We headed up the Blue Ridge Parkway early one morning last week, and I finally found an overlook cleared enough to get this sunrise shot over Waynesville. We could also hear something moving in the woods, so I made this a very quick stop!

One thing I have always loved to do is use organic elements in decorating -- both inside and out. Instead of heading to a big box decor store, just look around your own yard, or even a neighbor's, for things you can use to decorate your home for fall. Be sure to ask your neighbor first, though:-)
I thought I would share some of the things I have done in the past to decorate our outdoor areas for fall.

I wanted to share some more details in the girls' room makeover so I thought I would show how my daughter and I made the artwork and how I painted the antique wash stand.

I have been so busy with the girls' room and the ensuing mess it created throughout the house, that everything else has been seriously neglected.

Even though it's hot and not remotely fall here in the North Carolina mountains, I thought I would give y'all some ideas for fall decorating indoors using organic and natural elements.
I like to bring the outside in as I like for the inside to reflect what is going on outside, so I take my cues from nature.
I LOVE apples, which are abundant this time of year here, and find they are a great option for fall, plus you can eat them when you're through using them as decor:-)

Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments about my girls' French bedroom last week:-) I worked so hard on this room, and seeing it come together was extremely rewarding.
I wanted to share how I painted all the furniture in the room starting with my grandmother's vanity.

Yesterday was my birthday. It was one of those milestone birthdays -- I won't say what year:-)
It is a birthday I will remember, though, not because of the year, but because of the amazing gift I received.
