Fall 2016 kitchen tour

I am joining with some amazing bloggers today to share our Fall 2016 kitchen tour and a favorite recipe!

It’s a part of a farmhouse holiday series, so there will be more posts and decorating to come over the next few weeks from some really talented ladies.

Farmhouse Holiday Decor Series

My kitchen has been the same since we did the big remodel under duress back in 2010. It’s slowly been evolving lately as my tastes change. In fact, when I painted over 6 years ago, I went with a creamy white paint, and lately I’ve been thinking about repainting them with a brighter, cleaner white and gold knobs.

I still love my Gram’s chandelier. I painted our temporary island to match the buffet I recently painted.  I hemmed and hawed about it, but now I am so glad I did it!

It makes the kitchen look so bright!

White kitchen with pops of color

I recently added a brighter rug I found at HomeGoods.

Our supermarket doesn’t have any little pumpkins yet, so I filled out kitchen with yummy,seasonal, Fall fruits like pears and apples.

I love how adding a few fall decor items  can transform a kitchen!

The hardest thing about using edible props is keeping everyone away from them until the shoot is over. It’s like a feeding frenzy when I tell them they can finally eat them. I mean, that’s my weirdo kids. 🙂 It’s not like it’s candy or anything, but they get all excited to dig into a pear. Now, for me, if it’s a pan of brownies, watch out….

Painted buffet

I love the buffet painted this color!

Furniture in a kitchen can make great unconventional storage

This is also a great chance to peek at what’s on top of my fridge and hutch.

As a part of  a fail, you can see I totally forgot to fold the towels in the hutch. I am always grabbing them on the go, so this is nothing new. They rarely stay folded. Real life, right?

I had one of the most popular pillows in the shop turned into a canvas and I love how it turned out! I am going to have a few at the Urban Farmgirl show for sale.

Sink white cabinets wood countertop

My sink area is one the favorite parts of my kitchen. It’s so bright and so pleasant!

SIngel faucet

Our new kitchen sink faucet is a (sponsored) Moen faucet, and I love love it. I never thought I would like having the sprayer in the handle, but I got used to it very quickly!! Now, I wonder how I lived without it!

Mini blue green pumpkin

Even though there aren’t any mini pumpkins in the store yet, I have some blue pumpkins growing in my yard. I sacrificed a little one so I could have at least one pumpkin on this Fall tour.

Vintage owl mug

I love putting flowers around my sink and on my windowsill. It makes it so pretty. I found this vintage owl mug at the thrift store and filled it with marigolds from the yard. They are one of the flowers that is growing like gangbusters this year!

Sage in concrete pot

My Anthro pot  is filled with Sage from my herb garden and managed to find a few stray Black-eyed Susan’s in the back garden.

 I hope you enjoyed my Fall 2016 kitchen tour. I have a more extensive home tour next week, so stop back!

Before you go, I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes with you.

It’s for homemade marshmallows!

As many of you know, we have a corn allergy here, and most marshmallows are made with corn syrup, so I have worked on one that is made with sugar instead.

It makes the best s’mores, and with the cooler weather, it’s a perfect time for a bit of chocolate and graham cracker!!

or just for eating on their own!
