2015 Fall-Oween Home Tour Hop

2015 Fall Home Tour - Pocketful of Posies

Hi Everybody!  Today I am back with my first ever Home Tour!  I have teamed up with fifteen of my favorite bloggy friends to bring you our Fall-Oween Home Tour Hop!  So don’t forget to scroll to the bottom to check out all their beautiful homes!

For me it has been a long road to get to my first home tour up and running, mainly because there is still so much work to be done,  but I am so excited (and a little nervous) to be opening our home to all of you. For my first Home Tour I focused on our main living areas, mostly because its impossible to more than a few rooms clean and photo worthy at a time with a toddler on the loose.

If this is the first time you’ve stopped by to visit me, I just want to take the time to say thank you!  I hope you enjoy my small slice of this world.  To start off, I should tell you a little bit about myself.  I am a wife, a mother, a serial DIYer, an upcycler, a lover of all things unique and vintage, a thrift store addict and some times a hoarder of projects.  Although I am trying to be better about the last one.

I think our home is unique because I would guess that about 80% or more of the things we own were acquired second hand.  Mostly because I love fixing up old items.  Older items have so much more passion and history about them.  Each piece is unique and come with its own story, a story that doesn’t begin with “made in China”. Some of them have needed major overhauls and some only needed minor touch ups. But one thing is for sure, each piece is uniquely us.

For example, the chair in this photo is one of two that belonged to my Grandparents that date back to the 40’s.  Two years ago when I reupholstered them I found a slip in the bottom of one of them with the date, his name and the original order from the manufacture who custom built them just for him.  For me, it just doesn’t get much better than that.  As I move through the house I’ll share links with you from some of my past projects so you can see where some of these pieces started.

This whole vignette is dedicated to both home and family.  The picture is one I took after a light snow driving through the mountains near my home town.  The Quilt in the back ground was hand sewn by my Husbands Great Grandmother, perfect for those chilly fall nights!  And finally this clock is another favorite of mine that you’ve probably seen in some of my pictures before, even though it doesn’t even work.  It was a gift from my Dad who collects clock as a hobby.   Every time I look at it, it reminds me of home.

One of my favorite purchases this year is this adorable plaid stag (Affiliate) I have lovingly named Monty.  I knew the moment I spotted him, that he would really made my fall mantle come to life.

Here’s a sneak peak at one of my upcoming posts, this Fall Rose Garland turned out so cute!  It adds just the right dimension to our oddly shaped mantle.

Natural grasses  are a great way to bring a little fall indoors.  The best part is, they’re free! I found these beauties on the side of the road while running errands and they look great next to one of my cozy flannel shirt pillows.

This old garage shelf is still one of my favorite upcycles to check out my full post on it’s make over click here.

Another cool upcycle project was this Patchwork Cable Knit Table Runner I made a few weeks ago.  It adds the perfect amount of fall coziness to our table.

I also decided to use our new DIY Chalkboard Chargers as a little impromptu wall art in the dining room.  They were just too cute to put in the cupboard!

More thrift store finds!  Would you believe everything on this shelf came from thrift stores?!?  This is why I am a thrift store addict!

  1. I love your home, that mantel is amazing!!! I like all of the bright and bold colors you used in this fall home tour. Your shelves have inspired me to use two that have been collecting dust in our basement. I never saw the potential in them until you shared what you did with them. Thank you for the constant inspiration! I am so happy you joined in on the fall-oween home tour hop!

    1. Aww, thank you so much Emily! I was so happy and nervous to join! I’m glad the shelves inspired you! More than anything, that is the best compliment!


  2. Your house looks perfectly decorated for fall Cat! I loved to read the stories behind some of your things like the chair and quilt. Monty looks great on your fireplace too:). I can’t wait to read about how you made the rose garland. Beautiful!

  3. Oh my gosh! I am obsessed with Monty and your entire living room in general. The light in there is incredible!! It’s so special how you have all of those family touches at your fireplace. So pretty!

  4. I really enjoyed the personal touches with the stories behind some of the items you display in your home. 🙂 And if I ever came to your house, I’m pretty sure I would have to take that mirror in your dining room home with me.

    1. Haha, thank you Rose! That mirror is actually and old window, I just had them put mirror glass in it. I really love the way it turned out too! A good mirror can make all the difference in the world! Thank you for stopping by!


  5. Cat, you have the sweetest, happiest looking home! I feel like I just walked through an Anthropologie and wanted to buy all the stuff! Just perfection!

  6. You do a fantastic job. I’m totally smitten with your living room. The white and ALL that natural light in there! Your decor is so great. The deer head on the fireplace and those chalkboard plates on the wall!! Great job!

  7. Cat, I love your home, and all the vintage and antique goodies that carry so much sentiment. Way to go getting your home ready for a tour – I couldn’t commit because I was so scared to get so many spaces actually "put together". Good job – everything is gorgeous!

    1. Trust me, I was down to the wire on this one for that exact reason. Plus I was so nervous to do it! In the end, I am so glad I did! Thank you so much for stopping by Jeny!

  11. Hi, Cat ~ Your home looks so beautiful! I’ve been searching for a plaid stag. No luck! He’s clearly very popular! :0) Your mantle looks great, and I love the fall rose banner you made. And your chalkboard chargers look great on the wall and on your table.

    1. Thank you Tiffany! I think they sold in stores really fast, but I know they still have them online! Good luck on your hunt!


  12. I’m in love with those fabric flower garlands! I don’t have a mantle but I will find a place to hang them. Now, to raid Goodwill for some mustard-yellow corduroy… #STTA
