    Oh I love yourhome and your pretty Fall floral arrangements. That one with the apples and plums is amazing, you really did find the perfect color flowers. Your macrame is also so pretty, you have definitely been making some great original pieces. Beautiful tour. Thanks so much for joining in again this season, I am always thrilled to tour your home and see your latest designs.

    1. Thanks Marty and thank you for having me in the tour line up again

  6. I love your flowers and all of the texture here Julia! And of course the kitty cats!!

  7. Julila!! I am so impressed with your beautiful flower arrangements and your gorgeous living room! It is always such a pleasure being on this tour with you and thank you for all of your beautiful fall inspiration! Your home is always one of my favorites on this tour too!!! xoxo

    1. Thanks Bree, loved your tour too. You home is just amazing

  8. Well, it’s quite the toss up…do I love your home or cats the most! Seriously, I adore your style and keen sense of pattern and color! I did click and read your post on blogging. The struggle is so real. I’m much closer to 50 than you, and it’s so hard to compete with all the perfection out there. All the bloggers that are constantly changing their decor and furnishings baffles me. It’s the most unrealistic thing in the world. Don’t even get me started on the fashion bloggers. Keep doing what you are doing for the fun of it, and the rewards will come. Readers honestly to crave some normal out there!

    1. Thanks Christy and I agree. I can’t wrap my head around how fast paced some of the blogs are and there is no way I can compete with that.

  9. Julia you are such a talented floral designer! I love all of those arrangements! 🙂 Love sharing this tour with you and your beautiful eye for design.

  10. Julia, you first got me with your amazing mixing pattern and texture skills, then with your macrame creations and now look at those flower arrangements… They crazy good!! Well, you’re crazy talented!! Love your home!

    1. Thank you so much Cristina, you are so sweet.

  11. Julia I love the mix of patterns in your living room and that gorgeous flower arrangement is the perfect color combo for fall.

    1. Thanks so much Deb. I love fall flowers.

  12. Hi, Julia, I read your blogging post and girl, I totally agree! As someone who’s been blogging for so long, all of that social media social climbing drives me nuts too. I just can’t keep up with it all and so I stay in my little box and do my thing and don’t follow the crowds with everything going on. I think that’s the only way to stay sane in this online world now.

    Your home is always so pretty and inspiring! I love your use of black and white, a fave of mine too. And your animal print as well, love that! You do a beautiful job, so just keep being YOU and let your own style shine through!

    1. I agree Rhoda, that is probably the only way to stay sane, unless you hire a bunch of people to do it all for you.
      And thank you so much.

  13. who knew you were quite the floral artist?? beautiful arrangements Julia. enjoy the fall season and the september birthdays around your house.

    1. Thanks Laura, I love making flower arrangements and there was a time in my life where I had considered being a florist. But I had lots of things I wanted to do, this was just one of them 😉

  14. These are the most gorgeous floral arrangements I’ve seen. Kudos to you! Those kitties scattered throughout are pretty darn cute too. Thanks for sharing your beautiful and originally decorated home! So nice to see something that shows personality. Just lovely!

    1. Thanks so much Maggie, I really appreciate your sweet words about my home.

  15. Beautiful as always! I am so curious to know how you keep your cats from eating your plants that are poisonous. I have 4 cats and I am limited to which plants I can bring home because of their love of munching on them. The only real plants I have are hanging from the ceiling, which they cannot reach.

    1. That’s a good question. I should write a blog post about our plant situation one day soon because I get that question all the time.
      I don’t really have any poisonous plants in the house and my local nursery really helps me with all my questions. It also helps that my cats have plants that they can eat in our outdoor enclosure like grass and catnip.
      The new plant on the shelving unit called wandering jew has sap in the stem that can irritate a cat’s digestive system if eaten, but the leaves don’t normally cause problems. The sap also tastes awful which usually also deters them from eating it.
      On another note they can’t reach it on the shelving unit and don’t try to reach it either. They aren’t interested.

      The rest of the plants I have are ok with them too and they don’t touch my flowers. I guess the trick is giving them plants they can eat and avoiding poisonous plants all together.

    1. Thanks Bethany!
      I love splurging on flowers from the local market.

  16. Beautiful! Everything is so warm and cozy and I just want to cuddle those cats!! I love all of your fall floral arrangements too – gorgeous color choices!

  17. wunderschöne Blumendekoideen für den Herbst…toll! Jetzt könnte ich sogar einen Lebkuchen essen 🙂

  18. Oh my goodness I am crazy about your fall flower arrangements! Love the thistle, and all your rich jewel tones. The flowers are fruits are so elegant!

    So happy to be on this fall tour with you. Have a great fall!

  19. Your house look so pretty and the flowers you have all around are gorgeous! But the best part that says this house is comfy cozy for fall is the sleeping kitties. Nothing like a soft, warm fur baby to snuggle up with on a crisp autumn day.

  20. Oh my goodness, the flowers!!! I love those colors — the purple/aubergine and wine colors are so perfect for this season!! Love the light and airy but still warm and cozy for fall:-)

  21. your home is beautiful as always- love all your fall touches! Your kitty is the cutest! Have a wonderful weekend.

  22. Your tour is always one of my favorites and I look forward to it each season! Your florals are all amazing! What a natural talent you have!!! And, I can’t wait to check out that recipe!

  23. Your fall home tour is perfection my friend!!! I have to pick my jaw up off the floor – your floral arrangements are seriously stunning!! xo Heather

  24. Your fall floral arrangements are so pretty! Who needs pumpkins when you have bountiful arrangements like those. You should have a second career as a floral designer!
