Fall Open House at Willow Hill Farm (part 1)

Have I told you that we named our farm?  When we first found the property, we decided that it needed a name.  We chose Willow Hill because we built our home on the hill overlooking a marshy wet weather creek that leads to our pond.  Along our driveway we planted willow trees, and thus the name.

The picture below shows the true color better.  Sherwin Williams Earl Grey is a true grey...no blue, purple, or tan undertones.  

 We spend quite a bit of time out on our front porch.  The kids play a lot of basketball out here.  I love that it is shaded in the late afternoon.
Front door color: Sherwin Williams Festoon Aqua

I have a thing for garden flags

I got a little crafty and revamped my fall wreath.  Chevron burlap ribbon?  Swoon.

Ya'll come on in!

We had a party and a sweet friend brought this little mum as a hostess gift.  Isn't it precious?!  She let me in on her little secret: a brown paper lunch bag with the top 1/3 cut off.  Brilliant!
I love the simplicity.

 Since I can't even remember my own offsprings' birthdates when asked over the phone (does anyone else spaz out over silly stuff like that when put on the spot?!), you know I can't remember where I found this cute printable last year.  But I still love it!

Eventually I plan to paint this piece of furniture.  I'll have to take out a small loan to replace all of those knobs, but we can dream, right?

Welcome to the keeping room.  Do you call it a hearth room?  We call it the keeping room.  Tomato, tomoto. :)

 I love the light that streams in through my favorite windows in the late afternoon.

A little fall bling for the kitchen table area

I have a love affair with white pumpkins.  Why?  Why do they intrigue me??

The top of my desk got a little makeover...

Come back tomorrow and we'll visit the rest of the kitchen and my back porch.

I'm linking up with Southern Hospitality, Imparting Grace, A Stroll Through Life, We Are That Family, and The Dedicated House and It's Overflowing and Inspiration Monday

Oh it is breathtaking! Willow trees are my absolute favorite! We planted one when my first daughter was born and have watched it grow, just like her! What a warm and welcoming home!
