Happy fall my friends! I’m so thrilled to be sharing my fall entry decor with you today AND teaming up with Kirklands who have generously offered you the chance to win a $100 gift card to their store!
You know, I firmly believe that the old adage of never having a “second chance to make a first impression” holds true for both people and homes.
And this is why I particularly love the opportunity each season to create a warm welcome through my entry decor for anyone who crosses our threshold.
And the best part is that it doesn’t have to be complicated.
By selecting a few simple pieces that capture the essence of Autumn, it only took a few minutes to pull this all together. And I was so thrilled this year to be using some pieces from the fabulous Harvest Collection at Kirkland’s.
Oversized acorns with glittery caps are a fun update on a classic fall item.
A simple faux wheat wreath hanging on the mirror adds texture.
A vintage-y looking milk can (similar to red version) holds cotton branches and has just the right amount of distressing.
And a throw pillow with jute lattice (similar to) adds a soft touch.
Henry Van Dyke said, “Every home where love abides and friendship is a guest, is surely home, and home sweet home, for there the heart can rest.”
It’s at this time of the year, really more than any other, when I believe that our hearts turn more towards home and creating a place where the heart can find rest.
And, beginning at the beginning whether at home or in your heart is always the best place to start. (I promise I didn’t mean for that to rhyme!)
Now, who’s ready to enter to win a $100 Gift Card courtesy of the generous folks at Kirkland’s?

Before you go, be sure to take a look at the ways my blogging friends have incorporated pieces from the Kirkland’s Harvest line into their own homes.
As always, thank you so much sweet friends for meeting me at the fence,
*I’ve received product and compensation in partnership with Kirkland’s for this blog post but all opinions are 100% my own.*

I have been a subscriber to your blog for a LONG time and enjoy all your entries and pictures. But yours and many other blogs are wearing me out with so many pop-up advertisements that I have to close out as I read. I’m not talking about the sponsors like Kirklands who you are advertising for. I mean all the popups. I suppose you and other blog owners get paid to allow these but it is very annoying to the readers. Please stop all these annoying pop-up ads, so we can just enjoy your blog. Or I will have to unsubscribe. Thanks!!

Hi Laura! First of all, thank you so much for being a long time reader of our blog. That truly means so much to us! I’m so sorry that the pop-up ads are becoming frustrating. While it does allow us to continue to produce quality content by providing income for us and our families, we fully realize that it can also sometimes be an annoyance. It is truly a dilemma for bloggers. I will be looking into things with our ad manager to see if there is a better solution. We greatly value your readership and appreciate you taking the time to let us know how you are feeling about this issue. Thank you and have a blessed day! 🙂
I love Kirklands!!! Planning a sister’s and niece’s trip to Lancaster, PA in a few weeks. Can’t wait to visit the Kirkland’s store there!
Haven’t been in Kirkland’s for a while but I’m lovin’ the fall goodies! The store is not more than ten minutes away so there’s no reason not to check it out. The thing about fall decor is that it’s good until the snow flies. Ooooh, I just noticed the recipe for Easy Lemon Creme Brulee on the sidebar. You ladies have such fun and yummy stuff! xoxo

Vanessa–everything looks so warm and welcoming! I have to admit that I’m crushing on those acorns…I might have to add them to my fall decor. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us! XO, Christy
