I’m Peanut and I heard that my brother Reeses got a headline last post, so I told mother to get me in there.  Here I am “stalking” some of those pesky leaves that keep falling on to my domain! LOL  I’ll get them all!


Well, the weather has been rainy, chilly and dreary this week, but I wanted to share some of the things I did in the Family Room today.

Warning:  Many pictures ahead!

Decorating the great room for fall was so much fun.  I really enjoyed making the bookcase somewhat simple.  Using pumpkins along with some acorns I have gave me the feel I was looking for.  The small acorn wreath is from Décor Steals and I placed it on a small easel.  I didn’t care for the easel showing through the wreath.  John suggested putting fabric behind the piece.  I have to give credit where credit is due.  I chose this toile that I had on hand, I love how it looks.

I have so many plans for the bookcase for Christmas!!! Now that will really be picture overload, LOL!



I left the mantle simple since I didn’t want to fight with the TV and I really like the simplicity.


My terrarium, is filled with leaves, pumpkins and pieces of transferware and a small cachet pot.  To finish this off, I added some real mums to my Mercury glass jars.  Don’t know how long they will last indoors.  I have to take them out when watering so I don’t damage the jars.  As you can see, this hasn’t been painted yet but will be, I HOPE, before the holidays.

On our antique theater trunk, I filled this metal basket with hay and a bunch of pumpkins and gourds from the garden center.  Love the warmth this gives to this area.

Lastly, there are beaded pumpkins in this wire basket that I purchased a few years ago from HG on our coffee table.
