Welcome to My Home…

I’ve been wanting to share these photos with you for days now, only with A Time to Clean: 30 Day Challenge {starts back up tomorrow!}going on and then the holidays being upon us it just didn’t happen!

Anyway, so my home is not fancy in any sort of way and I often wish I could hire someone to come in and finish all the wallpaper stripping, painting, and pulling out of carpets. The fact is, my husband is a pastor and we just don’t have extra money for that sort of thing. Little by little over the last 11 years we’ve been getting things done. It’s feels so slow!

We live in a small town and so much of my home decor comes from Wal-Mart, Dollar General, or Big Lots. I do shop from time to time at Kohl’s or Hobby Lobby and the occasional flea market or other shop.

Fall is hands down my favorite time of the year. I just love the warm colors. In fact, my home is decorated in fall colors year round.

The Front and Back Porches

The Pumpkin Patch sign came from Big Lots. All of the flowers and plants came from Wal-Mart. I bought the shutter and small table at a flea market. The old watering can belonged to my husband’s step-father years ago. We picked the pumpkins at pumpkin patch for $1.00 a piece – except for the Cinderella pumpkin which came from Trader Joe’s in Knoxville.

The Foyer

A few months ago I painted my front door black. I love how it makes the colors of my wreaths or other door decorations pop no matter what the season!

The Living Room

The pumpkins on the mantel came from Hobby Lobby and the sign came from Big Lots. I picked up the bird garland at a yard sale.

The Dining Room

So, I still have the vintage wallpaper {we found under the other wallpaper} on the walls and the hardwood floors still need to be refinished. Those will get done one of these days! I have my buffet decorated with a candle warmer and fox salt and pepper shakers from Wal-Mart, cake plate from Princess House, and the book Every Bitter Thing is Sweet by Sara Hagerty. The small silver dish is from Mary & Martha.

The placemats, burlap table runner on the buffet, and table cloth all came from Wal-Mart. The white dishes came from Pier 1 Imports many years ago and the blue plates came from Wal-Mart.

Every year I add to my collection of seasonal items to decorate with by shopping the end-of-season clearance sales. I love decorating for the seasons and constantly change out my decor so that our home feels fresh and inviting and still interesting to my family.

So, thanks for stopping by to visit! I love having company!

  1. Your home is so pretty. I love the wallpaper in your dining -room. You have a real talent for decorating. The little touches make it look like a very "homey home." The out-side is very pretty, also. Linda
  2. Melissa...your home looks so relaxing and inviting...you have a talent for decorating...you are an inspiration to others in many ways.
  3. Melissa, your house always say's "WELCOME"! I love your dining room vintage wallpaper as I've already mentioned. Glad to see you are keeping it until you can can "get to it" -- my "GTI" list is about a mile long so I understand! I love your vintage round wall clock, do you know what kind it is or what the maker is on the dial? Our wall clock just broke and I find myself always staring at a broken clock....need to get a new one, and I love the style of your large round wall clock. They look like an old English style clock. Thanks for any info! Merry Christmas (...and not "Happy Holidays")! Smile! Paige
    1. Thank you, Paige! I want my family and our guests to feel like my home is warm and welcoming - I hope they feel that way! Yes, that "get to it" list seems to just get bigger as the days go by! The clock is a "vintage looking" clock. I want to say it came from Wal-Mart. It used to hang in our church sanctuary but then it stopped working after a few years and I brought it home. So it doesn't actually tell time right now. I've been wanting to replace the clock works but haven't gotten around to it.
    1. Susan, I actually bought the garland at a yard sale.... I collect birds and it's one of my favorite things! It's up all year long with the exception of Christmas time when I hang stockings under my mantel. :) I'd say it'd be easy to replicate though!
  4. Your home is absolutely adorable! One thing that would help the mantel out is a Mirror either on the mantel itself or on the wall and that can be made with toilet paper rolls spray painted, cut into strips about an inch wide and glued together to look like a flower and one Dollar Store candle mirror placed in the center of it..This would bring more light into the room. Just a tiny suggestion :o) I also live in a small town so get some of my things through Goodwill and St. Vincent's. I handmake alot of my items with supplies from Ebay ot the Dollar Tree. Although, I did splurge this month and got two new Oval lamp shades for my $1.00 garage sale butterfly lamps for $12.00 total at Target.com. Have a blessed day! {{{hugz}}}
  5. I love seeing the tour of your home--and I have to agree with everyone else that it is lovely. You DO have a talent for decorating, and thank you for the encouragement that one does not have to have the money to shop at the fancy expensive stores in order to make your house warm and welcoming! :)
