Hello Friends! Is anyone else as happy as I am that fall has arrived?!! Not to boot summer out the door, but some cooler temps are always welcome here in the Great Hot State of Texas :)
I'm excited to tell y'all that I'll be part of the Fall in Love With Texas Blog Tour, hosted by Katie at Let's Add Sprinkles!
I thought I would give you a sneak peek today, and I'll be back on Friday with some more of our home, decorated for fall. At the end of this post you'll find a list of all the participants, listed by the day they are sharing their fall inspiration.
For now, please come by and sit with me on our back patio, decorated for fall!
You might remember that we gave this area a refresh last spring for One Room Challenge (you can find the reveal here). As I had hoped, we enjoyed being out here quite a bit this summer! I was happy to give this space some fall color, knowing we will soon be spending cool, crisp evenings outside. An outdoor rug from World Market was the inspiration for my fall theme. The second I saw it, I knew it would be perfect to give the brick patio a splash of fall-ness.
The throw was a discount find at Ross, and I whipped up a few pillows with fabric from the remnant bin at JoAnn's. The cat pillow was a lucky find at Ikea, and believe me when I say I can't wait to use it in some Halloween decor! Because kitties :)
How happy are these sweet pumpkins? It will be at least a month (or more!) before we see some fall color here in North Texas, so some faux leaves are standing in for now.

Speaking of kitties, now you all can see why I really needed that throw out here . . . say hello to Lila, otherwise known as Miss Muddypaws ;)

Thanks for your visit today, friends! I hope you'll join us for the tour! I guarantee that you'll fall in love with Texas, too :)
