Liberty Antiques Festival Part One

Last Thursday hubby and I traveled north about 5 1/2 hours to my friend Shirley's. Mary Alice and her hubby drove south about the same distance from Virginia. Shirley lives in the middle and lives about 45 minutes from the Liberty Antiques Festival that takes place twice a year so she was kind to invite us to her home and then a day of shopping at the festival.

Help Me Choose

Did y'all have a fabulous fall weekend? Mr. Savvy and I went to Chapel Hill, NC to my friend Shirley's for some shopping at The Liberty Antiques Festival in Liberty, NC in the drizzling rain part of the day. I have lots of photos to edit and then I will share that day with y'all. Today we are talking bathroom floors and I need your help choosing new tile.

Back in July of 2013 (I can't believe it was that long ago) I shared one of the guest baths upstairs that I had never shared before Well, this little room is going to get a mini makeover soon.

We will start with the walls and either plank them or add beadboard like this bathroom from bhg.com.

French Style Chairs

It's time for another monthly edition of Creating French Country Style and this month we're talking French chairs. I have a hard time passing up a pretty chair when I come across one at an antique mall or flea market. I have heard others say that, too.

This is my favorite chair and it is actually French. This beauty was spotted on my trip to France last year.

Favorite Room....Eleven Gables

Hello, dear Savvy Southern Style readers!  My name is Emily and I write a blog over at Eleven Gables.  I started writing about the happenings at my home, "Eleven Gables," just this year.  My husband and I are raising our 4 boys in the Oklahoma countryside and we love sharing our home with you.  Thank you, sweet Kim, for inviting me to be part of your Favorite Room series!  

I recently shared that I have many favorite rooms in my "forever house," but my back porch pretty much takes the cake.  Here, I can start my day with coffee and my quiet time...

and end my day with a glass of wine and my sweetheart.

Simple Ways I Add Fall Decor

I have been adding a few things here and there that add the look of fall to me. Thank goodness it is actually feeling like fall this week. I love it!

One of those things that says fall to me are squirrels. Those cute overgrown rats with fluffy tails that like to chew on our house yet I like to decorate with them. I set this one, that I found at an antique mall a couple years ago, on a stack of books

Wow Us Wednesdays #188

Welcome to Wow and our first party this fall! We are enjoying gorgeous weather here that actually feels like fall.

Speaking of fall did you check out the Fall Porch Tour and Party I was part of yesterday? I hope you will find lots of great ideas so be sure to check it out.

Now, lets check out some highlights from last week's party.

I always love to see how Home is Where the Boat Is creates seasonal spaces.

Just Like My Vision

Thanks to everyone who joined our Fall Porch Tour and Party yesterday.  The party is seen on six blogs so that means extra traffic for you. It will be open for several days so we would love to have you join any time. 

Did you see my front door? Thank goodness I can throw an idea that is in my head at Mr. Savvy and he can make it turn out just like I was hoping. I knew I wanted to hang a bushel basket on the front door, but wasn't sure how to make it work.

Fall Porch 2014 and Party!

Can you believe that fall officially begins tonight? Bring on the cooler temps, the bluer sky, the smell of fallen leaves decaying and being able to wear my new boots!
If you follow me on instagram then you have seen some of my new boots and I can't wait to wear them. But today we aren't here to talk about new boots. We are here to share some fall porch ideas.

On Saturday I shared my past fall porches and I wanted to do something a little different this year.

An Easy Fix

A few weeks ago I purchased these sweet old plates with tiny flowers and scalloped edges from Marian a.k.a. Miss Mustard Seed.

Past Fall Porches

In just a few days it will officially be fall! I can't wait for cooler less humid weather with the smell of fallen leaves in the air. Yes, I love that woodsy smell. I will miss not mowing the lawn anymore until next spring, but bring fall on!

Today I am going to share the way my front porch has looked  for the last three years decorated for fall.
I only have a small porch unlike the traditional southern porches, but I make the most of it I can. this was the way it looked in 2011.

Favorite Room....The Heathered Nest

I'm brand-spanking new to blogging.  Actually, I'm kind of brand spanking new to computers, in general.  If you had smacked me upside the head with an HTML tag or wanted to talk "linky parties" one month ago, I would have looked at you like my children do when I attempt to speak to them using three syllable words.

So when Kim, from her uber-popular, super impressive blog, Savvy Southern Style, emailed to ask ME (Heather ala Heathered Nest) to share my favorite space with her readers, I sat in front of my computer, and looked over my shoulder for someone else she could be talking to.  But after emailing her back (from my AOL account with my dial up modem), she assured me that she did in fact, want me to share.  So here it goes...

Meet Sweet Cheeks.
