Fall at the Nance's 2014




Happy Fall!   We are in the mid-eighty's here and the weather is so nice.  God is Good!

As promised, here are some Fall decorations at our home this year.  Hope you see something to inspire you.  The only item I bought this year was an led orange candle,,,Ya-Hoo!  Click on the pics to enlarge.

Entryway - pumpkins light up at night.




Side table in Dining Room with a little Fall.

New area rug (from Ross) and pillows in the Living Room (animal prints are a favorite thing of mine).   Don't tell anyone, but the pillows were from Big Lots and on sale!  I just love a bargain.
Just little changes that brightens up the room and me :) :)  Oh, I almost forgot, our little Maltese "Casper" seems to fit right in with this decor.  He's one year old now and thinks he is a big boy and may I say, very vocal!

I nicknamed him "Yippy" because all he does, is go around the
house yip, yip, yipping!  He is Daddy's baby for sure.  It's O.K.
with me.....Daddy's the one who has to get up in the middle
of the night to let him out.  He will not go out for me..just Daddy:) :)

For Fall mantle, I used everything I had on hand.  Filled the Tuscan urns with Fall
flowers and faux wheat.  Next, Fall garland draped across mantel and added a couple
white pumpkins.


Welcome Fall - bucket with harvest items for the hearth.


Lantern all dressed up for Fall.

This is a favorite of mine.  So easy.  Just fill the top (hold it upside down)with any Fall decor
you may have and then (while holding top upside down) place the bottom on top and
turn over.  Wha-la!  

Baker's rack for Fall

Fall centerpiece for kitchen table.  Just fill a pretty vase with a bunch
of Fall flowers and drape over on one side.  Very Easy!

 Thanks for coming by and looking.  Your comments are always welcome.  I love hearing from  you.
Hope everyone has a great day and "Til then,

Many Blessings,
Carol

New Bamboo Flooring

Happy Fall Ya-ll!



Haven't posted for a while....bloggers block, I think. :)   Hope all of you are decorating for Fall and having fun.  

We (should say Hubby and friend Jeff) have been busy installing a new bamboo floor in the LR, DR, Hallway and Master Bedroom.  If you have ever put a floor down with concrete underneath - it makes a lot of grit and grime!  We had tile in the hallway before and Hubby had to hammer the tile and scrape all of it.  My sinuses were not too happy! 

Here are a few photos of new floor.  First time ever doing a bamboo floor.  So far, no problems.  The boards have varied shades of (pecan?) in them, so they go with everything.  We tried three samples before we chose this one.  Click on the pic to enlarge.


Close up of Stranded Bamboo Floor (should have turned of the flash!) :(


Living Room.  Looks much lighter in this shot with the sun coming in. It has no red hues in it, believe me.  As you can see, I've done a little decorating for Fall.  Will post some more later.  The blue wing back chair soon will be replaced with a smaller dark brown or black leather chair (maybe  two facing the fireplace.) What do ya think??  Christmas (I hope).  

Hallway is much happier now.  

Entryway.   

Master Bedroom.  Munchie is such a ham!


I will be taking more photos of my Fall decor, so please come back to see what I came up with this year.

Thanks for visiting and as always, I love your comments!

Many Blessings,   Carol
