Autumn Farmhouse Tour

If I was to describe my sense of style when it comes to decorating the farmhouse for Autumn/Halloween I would say it's a mix of Harvest/Nature with whims of History, Literature and a dash of vintage encyclopedic anatomy.

Here's a tour of our home decked out for the season. I'd love to see your favorite decorations in your homes! Share your photos on the Iron Oak Farm Facebook Page. 
This is our covered front porch, one of my favorite places in our home. It's the perfect place to rock in one of our rocking chairs with a cup of coffee.

Spider wreath I made last year. Learn how by clicking here. Dollar Store Spider Wreath.
I love collecting and making vintage Halloween lanterns. I made this cat with a bow-tie a few years back from simple cardstock.
The porch is Oliver's favorite spot as well.
Moving into the Kitchen, I don't have a lot of decorations. I like a clutter-free kitchen, with as much clear counter space as possible. Only our chalkboard has a bit of Autumnal flare.
Moving into the dining room I have our kitchen table decorated in traditional Halloween burnt orange, black and white. The table cloth is from Target, the black "satin" runner from the Dollar Tree, the candlesticks are antique milk-glass, ghosts were made by my mom in ceramic class and the pumpkin is Rouge Vif D'etempe from our garden.

The wall hanging is an excerpt of Cotton Mathers "Wonders of the Invisible World" He played an active role in producing literature to help"inform" the public of witchcraft and the occult during the trials. The witch figure was purchased in Salem Massachusetts on our Honeymoon. The wheat is the decoration on the head table of our wedding and the crow is from Hobby Lobby.
These signs were purchased in Sleepy Hollow, New York and Salem, Massachusetts when we visited on our Honeymoon.
