Share Your Style Party #85

to our 85th Share Your Style blog party.  Autumn has officially arrived and I am seeing so much beautiful inspiration in your homes for decorating with a Fall flare, yummy (gotta try) recipes, life style suggestions, fashion and lots more.  A big thank you to all who join us.

Your hosts are a party of five so when you participate in the party you will get lots of exposure.

My name is Lynn, of the blog, The Vintage Nest, and I am thrilled to be your personal host this week.  I have chosen several participates that caught my eye and would like to feature this week.  If you were chosen,  please accept our button for your side bar, as a token of our appreciation.   Don't forget to link back to the party so others can find our party and have the opportunity to meet lots of new bloggers.  Thank you for coming.


The Everyday Home blog has a beautiful example of an updated Fall wreath.  It is just fabulous!

Kingsbury Brook Farm  shares her farmhouse Fall kitchen.  She has decorated it in soothing and simple objects.  Autumn and the Fall season needn't be all about orange.

Let's have a Fall picnic.  The Little Yellow Corner Store  invites us to a Cornfield picnic.  She uses bright blue and the orange of the pumpkins to make such an inviting display.  And who wouldn't love her treats of Chocolate Acorns.  Yum!

And lastly, I saw these charming faux pumpkins in a magazine and now Debby goes Shabby reveals one she made from a Goodwill find.  I guess I know what I will be on the lookout for on my next pickin' trip.  :)

A Beautiful Southern Property Tour

Hello everyone!

When my husband retired from the fire dept last Spring, he was given an extravagant gift to attend a class to build a custom bamboo fly fishing rod. Fly fishing is my husband's biggest hobby!  In the class,  he got the chance to meet many fine people.  After spending about 8 hrs a day together for 6 days, he became close to some of them.  One in particular happens to live near us.  So, when we received an invitation to his annual "pig roast" at his house, we were more than happy to attend.   

I thought I would share some pics of his beautiful home and property.  

Here is his house as we walked up to it.  It sits on several acres.

Faux Fur

Hello everyone!

Since it hasn't felt like Fall yet, I've held off on putting out the traditional pumpkins etc. However, that hasn't stopped me from adding some cool weather accents to my home.  These can be used throughout the winter.  I love texture and soft materials, so faux fur fits that bill!  It has really warmed up my mostly white rooms.  

My most recent fur acquisition is this small brown sheepskin rug from Pottery Barn.  I decided to use it draped over my chair rather than on the floor.

Searching for Fall

Hello everyone!

Are you one of the fortunate ones that is enjoying the crisp cooler weather that Fall brings?  Or, are you one (like me) that is still stuck in the heatwave of the summer?  I guess, it's a toss-up.  I endure hot long summers, but on the flip side mild to moderate winters.  No shoveling snow and dealing with blizzard warnings here very often.  So, with that in mind, I guess I will take that to heart while waiting on the weather to cool down here for Fall.  It will happen on it's own time.  

In the meantime, I thought I would highlight some great Fall decor ideas that have been shown around blog world lately.  I will live vicariously through them until it starts feeling like Fall here.

Decorating with Gold Accents

Hello everyone!

As I mentioned in my last post, I've begun the process of changing up some accessories around my home with Fall approaching.  I don't do traditional Fall decor with orange pumpkins and bittersweet inside, but I do like a neutral earth toned palette.  To enhance that a little more, I decided to bring in some metallic gold accents.  I placed some in my glass cabinet and above my mantel.  

The first thing I did was to paint the frame around my mirror in gold.
