Autumn In the Sitting Room

Welcome to the Homemaking Party! I'm still unpacking!! Today I finished all the upstairs sitting room boxes and a few bedroom boxes. I also organized our closet and did some more work in my library. Whew! I'm exhausted!

Even though it's still in the high 70s and extremely humid, I figured it was time to get my Autumn on so I went ahead and put out the rest of the Fall decor. Liam (7) was concerned these things would be ruined when we fire up the woodstove. I'll be sure to move them if we need it this year!

These little buddies are occupying the window seat that looks out on our front yard.

Well, and look who's appeared! Lynzie Mae (17) and Mr. Darcy!

This is the coat closet and decor at my entry way. No need for coats yet!

Here's a little vignette I set out on the cabinet between the sitting room and the library. I think it may be time to take another pumpkin patch photo!

My hutch with Fall decor. I used to have a bunch of neat plates to display but I broke them all at once last year! Yikes!

My mom gave me these two owls and I've displayed them atop the hutch. I have several owl things that I set out at Autumn. Selah (11) asked me what do owls have to do with Fall? I suppose not much more than any other season, but they've got the right coloring!

This was supposed to be a nice photo of my Autumn centerpiece but apparently the camera wanted to focus on my porch chair instead. Ha!

Here is another hutch near our back porch. The red books are a collection of Shakespeare's works published in the early 1900s. Jamie gave them to me last year. The Steampunk owl atop the hutch was my sweet find from Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago.

Here is our screened back porch. It's a lovely place to sit when it's cooler outside---which is not often...but I'm holding out hope. Ha!

...and here's the final shelf in my sitting room where I'm arranging my homemaking, homeschooling, and this season's read-alouds. 

Hope you've enjoyed a mini-tour of my home. It's all coming together nicely! Have a lovely week, friends!


  1. Looks like your house is ready for fall. Thanks for the party.

  2. I love all the touches of fall, its a nice time of year to transition!
    Would love to have you stop by Oh My Heartsie Girls Linky Party.
    Hope you have a great week! http://ohmyheartsiegirl.com/heartsie-girls-wonderful-wednesday-75/

  3. I love your woodburner. I have always wanted one. Your daughter is getting so grown up! Thanks for hosting!

  4. Your home looks so cozy and nice!

  5. So glad to see your new home. Very nice and you have added just the right touches. Makes a lot of difference when it is your home and not renting. Many blessing to you and your great family.

  6. I just love those fall decorations! We are having cool nights around here, so our leaves are turning. Unpacking can be quite a chore, so take care that you don't over do it! Thanks for the party, and have a great day.

  7. Thanks for the house tour, Sarah! Yes, my place is all decked out for fall too--always do that Labor Day weekend. We're in South Jersey and have enjoyed a nice fall chill in the air this week, but may be getting higher temps this weekend. Fall baking happens anyway--and soups are on the menu this month. Blessings, milady!

  8. Lovely house tour Sarah. I love how it looks for Fall. I am sharing my Fall kitchen tour as well.
    Happy October.

  9. Sarah, thank you for hosting AND for the tour of your lovely new home. I especially love the wood trim, window seat and screened porch!
