Fall In Love With Texas Blog Tour Day 1

I'm so glad it is fall.
I don't know if any other season garners so much excitement.
Pumpkins, scarecrows, hayrides, apple picking, Halloween, and Thanksgiving, they are all just divine.

I'm thrilled that you are here for our Fall In Love With Texas Blog Tour.
If this is your first visit - welcome!
It is wonderful to have you here.

Dried Hydrangea, a squirrel and a ticking pumpkin in a lantern.

Last year at this time I was invited to a be a part of a Christmas blog tour featuring Texas bloggers.
Since then, we have gotten together several times to meet face to face.
I adore our Texas blogging community and I thought it would be fun to get us all together to show off our talent.
Stop by Let's Add Sprinkles every morning this week for the days' list of bloggers.
20+ bloggers will be featured during the tour.

I am going to start by inviting you to have a tour of our home decorated for fall.

Fall Display, Squirrel, Pillow Ticking Pumpkin

I've done a lot of decorating with green in 2016 and I knew that it had to stay in the mix for our fall decor.
When I saw these gorgeous dried hydrangeas for sale on eBay, I knew
I had my scheme - blue, green, purple, and white.

The green chalkboard got a fresh design in keeping with the season.
Read about it here.

The white ceramic pumpkin came from a thrift store.

I picked up a remnant to make the green pillow for the newly slipcovered couch.
The pillow is a super soft faux suede.

I adore the sofa with the new slipcover.

Finally, here is a peek at our kitchen with the freshly painted kitchen cabinets.

The cabinets received a coat of Snowbound by Sherwin Williams.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Now, I hope you will head on over to see Laura @ Decor to Adore - Here.
Laura was the one that got the Texas bloggers together to meet and greet at a Christmas brunch.
 Her sewing skills are perfection.
You will love her five darling crafts made from one plaid shirt.

Next up is Celestina Marie  @ Southern DayDreams - Here.
Celestina is an amazing artist and crafter.
Her classic home is just gorgeous and exudes Southern charm.
Take a peek at her charming fall home tour.

Carol @ Bluesky Kitchen - Here.
Carol is an amazing cook.
I would love to attend one of the cooking classes that she hosts in her home.
Stop in to read her tutorial on how to set a table for a fall party. It is gorgeous.

I hope you are prepared to fall in love with Texas all this week.
Come back tomorrow for more wonderful inspiration.
