What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and everything in between. Thanks for stopping by; I hope you stay awhile!

a rustic home thanksgiving round up


hello friends! 

just wanted to drop in and share some of my favorite autumn decorative / home items that came out year!

I've placed an asterisk (*) on the things I really want for myself, so you can see where my head is at -- but let's be honest, if I could buy it all, I would. LOL, I mean... if only we had an endless budget and space to continuously bring in new decor every year, eh? 

unfortunately, neither is the case for me. I know it's so easy to fall into the habit of accumulating an endless amount of stuff, so I try to be really careful and mindful about what I buy when it comes to seasonal decor.

with that said, I am first to admit that I love to window shop and looking at all the pretty seasonal lines. so naturally -- rounding up all the beautiful things, curating a graphic and sharing them with you is a hobby of mine at this point. let's be real, it's one of the things that keeps the blog alive and I hope you enjoy looking at my finds as much as I love curating them.

so without a further ado, here is a pretty rustic thanksgiving round up!


↟ mouse salt + pepper shakers*

↟ goose pitcher*

↟ pumpkin candles

↟ autumn hue tea lights

↟ acorn + oak garland

↟ walnut box

↟ pot holder*

↟ wheat candle

↟ pumpkin pillow

↟ mayberry bedding

↟ magnolia wreath*

↟ gourd dessert plate

↟ autumn wooden pumpkin salad bowl

↟ bell sculpture

↟ small bowls

↟ serving set

↟ pumpkin gravy boat

↟  pumpkin cocotte 

↟  acorn candle pot

↟  pumpkin glass candle

so there you have it, a sweet rustic thanksgiving round up. what's your favorite thing on the list? that goose pitcher and mouse shakers are calling my name!
