It's Autumn In August

Hi there! Yes, you read the title correct, it sure is Autumn in August over at...The Tuscan Home.
Every year, right before the kids go back to school, I get busy decorating for Fall. Join me, and I will share what I have completed around the house.
I have lots of metal and Iron wall decor, and all through the year, I simply change out the wreaths with the seasons.
I have a black hutch in the kitchen dining area. I love adding fall colors, because it looks cozy against the black backdrop.
On the top of my hutch I added a large basket and filled it with pumpkins and gourds. I added two fall leaf garlands and two berry garlands to add dimension.
Here is another example of adding a wreath to metal wall decor. In this photo I hung my wreath with wire ribbon.
In the family room, on a sofa table I added a few leaf plates.
Here is the family room mantle. I added a lit fall leaf garland and some berry garlands, too! I placed twig pumpkins in amongst the garland. 
I adore the the earthy, warm, fall colors throughout the house.  
I always have an Autumn Tree, so this year my theme is a Pumpkin Tree.
I used a large twig pumpkin as my tree topper, ha! I added tons of fall leaves, twig branches, and beige deco mesh and wired ribbon. 
Happy Harvest, y'all! ;)
In the living room I added two wooden pumpkins in amongst some greenery. 
In the kitchen, I filled up a huge glass canister with tons of multi-colored beans that you can buy at the grocery store. I placed some greenery in the beans and then layered it with some tall fall floral picks.  I took out my pumpkin wax warmer, and placed some "pumpkin spice" wax melts inside, can you smell the pumpkin now??? ;)
In the dining room, I hung a wreath in the window and placed an Autumn floral arrangement beneath it.
Here is the kitchen dining area with the hutch decorated for Fall.
In the office I sat a pumpkin on top of the greenery.
I love this family platter I found at Walmart two years ago.  I placed some sunflower floral picks just under the platter.
Last week, I found these two pretty cloches at Tuesday Morning and placed some Fall Potpourri inside the cloches, to add a splash of color.
In the dining room, I layered with pumpkins, leaves, gourds, and acorns...right around my candle centerpiece.
In this glass vase, I placed fall apples and acorns in around my candle.
 In this photo, I added a fall twig pumpkin that has berries, a small pumpkin, and a big leaf on it.
Here is the living room. I will share better pictures soon. It was hard to get a good shot with my iPhone.
I filled a large glass vase with rustic pumpkins and placed them around my candle.
Here is a shot of our dining room.
I'm in love with the super tall windows in the living room, it lets so much light in. :)
I decorated my mirror by hanging the letter R (for our last name) and added a fall berry garland at the top. I also decorated the home office, too! 
Well, although it's still summer, and I'm loving every second of it, I am also enjoying my warm, cozy, and earthy Autumn decor, during summer, ha! I know, I'm crazy-e!
Thanks for visiting! xo, ~Liz

I'm Back....

Hello, my sweet friends. I wanted to drop in and let you know I'm still here, and boy do I have a lot to share soon.
We are settled into the new house, and guess what I started yesterday? I started decorating for fall.
School starts at the end of August, so I thought it would be fun to get my Fall decorating done early (as usual) and share it with all of you. Sorry for not posting sooner, but as you can imagine, we've been busy. Miss all of you and I look forward to catching up on everyone's blogs.
XOXO, ~Liz

We found a house on 10 Acres, yippie!

Hi everyone! Well, we are officially under contract, and due to close June 15th! We can't wait to be in Virginia...home, sweet home!
So this is the house we fell in love with.
This is our first resale home we've ever bought. We usually buy new to ensure things are under warranty and turn key, so this is new for us. 
 It's an all brick house, 3 levels, completely finished. 
 The house is surrounded by plenty of trees on rolling hills.
 It has a maintenance free deck. 
The grounds are beautiful. 
It even has a climate controlled wine cellar, and I barely drink, y'all! 
Come on in...
I wonder if the wine comes with the house, lol! Probably not! 
It was 56 degrees when we walked in.
This house has lots of heavy trim work, which we love and have always wanted.
Check out the huge Palladian windows in the living room.
The staircase splits the master bedroom from the rest of the rooms.
Here is the mudroom. I don't even know what to do with this space, but I'm sure once I'm in, the ideas will start coming.
Here is the staircase.
The family room is a step down and the whole main level is all hardwood flooring.
Here is the office.
This house needs some minor updating, which will lead to some fun projects.
So there you have it, our house to be. More pictures to come...
***Maybe I'll call my blog...the Colonial Home! :)
On a sad note, I lost my father two weeks ago, today. If you all wouldn't mind keeping my family in prayer, I would really appreciate it. We will have the funeral in 2-3 weeks, and then our move, it's a lot to handle all at once, sniff! 
Thanks for visiting! xo, Liz

Big News

We are moving...
My husband is getting a new job, but with the same company, and we will be moving in 60 days. Guess where?
Virginia, home sweet home! We are so excited, we have missed Virginia more than you can imagine. So, we will be gearing up for the big move soon. I can't wait to go on our house hunting trip. 
I was just thinking about starting on my spring/Easter decorating, but may have to skip it...too much to do, in so little time. ;)  Anyway, I just want you all to know I'm still around, and will be sharing things here and there between now and the move, so stay tuned. :)
xoxo, Liz

Spring Decor

Hi everyone, is anyone still around? :) Sorry for not posting since Christmas, we've been super busy. My four daughters participate in *All Star Competitive Cheer* so between that and school, I've not had a lot of time to post.
Today, I will do a quick post of some of my spring decor.
I changed up the dining room area and added this vignette with lots of yellows and greens.
In the family room, I added this lemon wreath and decor accents, in yellow.
In the kitchen, I added faux lemons to my wire cloche.
In the family room, on other side of the fireplace, I added these little garden balls to my mirrored candle sconces.
On my Baker's Rack, I added a small plant to my cookbooks.
I love decorating with faux artichokes, so I placed some in a basket of greenery, on my Baker's Rack.
On my Hutch, I added this vignette. I bring this look out every spring.
On the kitchen table, I added green plates with large brown chargers and placemats. I have a lot of greens, yellows, golds, browns, and reds in this area.
In the kitchen, I added these cute glass jars and filled them with pasta.
Here on the Baker's Rack sits a cute Rooster and other decor items.
I found matching candle holders at Marshall's and on clearance. I added some decorative rock and a simple candle.
On the coffee table, I added this grass arrangement and two book boxes with a large decorative ball.
On the entertainment center, I added a yellow rustic pot with a garden ball, and a sign that says, family! :)
Also, on the coffee table, sits a very large oversized bowl, filled with garden balls.
I moved my black hutch from the formal dining room to the informal dining room.
So there you have it, our home decorated for spring. :)  Thanks for stopping by and for all the sweet comments that have been left since Christmas. ((Hugs and Love)) ~Liz
