farmhouse style for fall 2023

Have you picked up the Autumn issue of Farmhouse Style yet? πŸπŸ‚

They’re celebrating their fifth year, and this issue is just filled to the brim with fall dΓ©cor inspiration, fun DIY projects and yummy recipes.


As a regular contributor to Country Sampler Farmhouse Style, I have a few season projects and recipes to show you today…  


Check out the table runner. It’s made entirely of vintage book pages. I took a damaged book, ripped out the pages and affixed them to contact paper to create this look.


Here’s another view of the table that did not appear in this issue. I love how the patina of the old book pages blends in so well with the rustic autumn leaves.


And check out these gorgeous Acorn Leaf Plates from Vagabond House. They’re heirloom quality china, and so pretty! 

Also notice the little DIY Votive. It’s also featured in this issue. Pretty gauzy napkins are from Amazon, and most everything else is vintage.


Next up is my fun collection of vintage enamel coffee pots. I really love the ones with curvy spouts and the ones with the little glass percolator knobs on top.


I styled them here for fall with sunflowers, daisies and autumn leaves from the garden.


Here’s the same look but without the autumn leaves. Which look do you prefer? This one would work any time of year, wouldn't it?

This fall issue also featured one of the first projects I created for Farmhouse style, this apple wreath. I still remember how happy and amazed I was when it first appeared in print 5 years ago!


One of the cutest projects are these repurposed glass jars made into votives by simply using old book pages, a little baker’s twine and some mod podge. A little pumpkin cut-out adds fall charm to the whole look.


I also used these on the tablescape with the book page table runner that I mentioned above. It all goes together hand in hand with the autumn vibe.


A Halloween tablescape is up next. I kept it elegant and slightly spooky all with a farmhouse twist. The Farmhouse Stripe Table Linens is what really gives it that home feel, and I used vintage china for added warmth and character.


Bright pops of orange marigolds gives it that fun Halloween vibe and of course the black candles bring it all to life.


Back to the “Novel DΓ©cor” article, they also brought back one of my vintage projects that appeared in their Kitchen Issue. This one using old books as a knife block is quite cheeky, but it works brilliantly!    

And  check out that preppy madras belt. I stole that from my hubby's closet, but he was happy to lend it to me.

Two of my recipes are featured in this fall issue, and first up we have this yummy dessert. I’ve been making this Sweet Potato Chiffon Pie at Thanksgiving for many years, and it’s definitely a family favorite.

The cute napkin featured above is from August Table.


The theme for the recipe article is “Favorite Southern Dishes”, and this one fits the bill perfectly. Another favorite Southern recipe is my take on She-Crab Soup.


Back in the day, way, way back in the day, they used crab roe for this recipe, but by today’s standards, that’s not sustainable, so here I substituted egg yolks to give it an extra luxurious kick.

The Blue Crab Cheese Board and Pewter Crab Place Card Holders are from Vagabond House.

πŸπŸ‚ All-in-all this is a great issue, 

and given that I love fall soooo much, 

this one definitely has lots for seasonal inspo.πŸπŸ‚
