Welcome friend! I'm so glad you have joined me here at Dreaming of Homemaking. I like to think of this blog as my journal, full of ideas that have helped me turn my house into a warm, welcoming home. My hope is that you too find this little piece of the internet a place to gather ideas and find inspiration.
I love real plants and flowers, but changing them out each season and having them for such a short time, I like to use faux flowers that I can switch out and use year after year! I love finding faux florals at JOANN, they have such a great selection for each season. Here I just added in faux marigolds into my window boxes its such an easy DIY and I will show you as we go through each photo along with my other fall front porch decor.
This sign gets me so excited for fall and all that it brings, the crisp air, fireside, hot cider, hayrides and so much more! What do you like most of all in fall?
These lanterns are also from JOANN, I need to add some twinkle lights or candles ( I did make the mistake of adding faux candles but were wax, and those melted quickly)
Look at the pop of color these marigolds add! You would never guess they are faux right? This stencil project on my porch was so fun to do, it really makes this doormat pop! JOANN is honestly the first place I go for doormats, they always have a great selection and the prices are amazing too! This Hello Pumpkin Doormat will be a favorite for sure!
These marigolds just make me so happy, who ever knew faux florals could?
Do you spy pumpkins?? I see my first pumpkins… I didn’t have to be tempted to much I have a weakness for them and these are from JOANN and a few I did a DIY on last year!
Here is an up close of so many of my favorite things! Doesn’t this scream cozy to you? This is my favorite spot to curl up and watch my kids as they ride their bikes in the cul-de-sac.
This pillow says it all, did you know JOANN has such a great assortment of pillows and blankets? They really have such great decor! This throw is so soft my kids keep taking it from me!
A little peek of the marigolds popping in!
Are you ready for pumpkins? I sure am! These were so fun to DIY, if you cant find what you are looking for just a little paint and viola! Make sure to see my pumpkin tutorial on the JOANN app and so many more!
