Fall at the Farmhouse | 2016


I declare it at least three times a week on my Instagram feed, but Fall really is the best time on the farm. You hear tractors all day long, you see dust from the combine, fields become clean and everything opens up. Of course being married to a farmer, Fall is always extremely busy.... and this year is no different. While our weekends are busy with Apple Butter making, hayrides and other wonderful family traditions - during the week while my farmer is in the field I really get some great alone time at home (with Molly) to do what I enjoy, to do what rejuvenates me. Decorating, baking, cleaning.... All of those sort of things that to some might be chores, but to me - are therapeutic.



Like most Holiday or season d├ęcor (except the 500+ Christmas Lights on my house) I keep Fall pretty simple - pumpkins and mums!






We just finished out sidewalk and in the Spring, so this is the first Fall that I am able to decorate the steps. I am also happy about the 6" steps that are wider. When I was "designing" them I was literally picturing this right here. Pumpkins and mums spilling over each step.





The sidewalk was our last thing to do to the house for a while..... Except now I want a brick lined patio out back... Gosh I really hope my farmer isn't reading this.... and I really wish corn wasn't $2.89. #farmlifeproblems ;)



Adirondack chairs have been my new latest obsession. I have two on my front porch and two in my yard next to a big tree (the only big tree)...
 



They're fun to festively decorate each season with pillows or throws, America flags and pumpkins....


 
Can you spot Molly.... 
 

 
I love specialty pumpkins of all different colors and shapes, but nothing quite beats a good ol jack-o-lantern style pumpkin. I place them around a few trees in the yard.
 


Freshly combined corn field and turning bean field.... The views are spectacular this time of year.


 



I have a few of these lanterns sitting around by trees and on the front stairs. They contain a flame less candle and in a few weeks for a more "halloweenish" look they'll have orange string lights.



And because black and white pictures are my favorite....


 
More Adirondack chairs....
 



 







 



 
My sidekick....


 
 
Huge pumpkins by the barn..... 
 


 




 



Seriously - a typical sunset on the farm.....




I will have an updated little "spookier" look in a couple of weeks for Halloween and our annual Hayride.... Go, hurry get pumpkins and mums while supplies last. Most all of mine came from Hill Top Nursery in Dover.
