Fall at Casa Golondrina

Welcome to the Fall in Love With Texas Blog Tour and welcome to our home Casa Golondrina.

Fall has arrived here in El Paso.

This is our second fall season in our home after living here almost 15 months.

What is this second fall season teaching us?

That fall has and always will be about family, friends near and far, good food and good football, and comfort.

This is a comfortable house.

I have learned that I still love and enjoy my fall things from the past, but I am now seeing fall in unexpected places-

like this pillow I found at the Santa Fe flea market, or the colors of the nicho I found years ago at the McAllen flea market.

Those things look like fall to me too.

But, the very next minute I turn around and see my beloved blue and white and my gathered and collected fall things from years past, and I think, 'that looks like fall'.

And so it all is, right? 
I hope your fall season is wonderful!
Don't forget to look in unexpected places:)
If this is your last stop on our tour, organized by the wonderful Katie of Let's Add Sprinkles, we are so glad you visited. Here are links to all of the tours.

Oh that nicho is absolutely stunning Laura! I think blue and white pairs so beautifully with orange and rust. A perfect combination!

Hi Laura! I loved taking a peek at Fall in your beautiful home. Your use of your favorite blue and white paired with Fall colors is so pretty. One of my favorite things is the nicho...I'm swooning. Thank you for your inspiration on this Fall tour.

There is a certain comfort in spending a season for the second time in a new home. You know what worked last year, but can make some tweaks. Your home looks so inviting for friends and family in this season when we take time to appreciate them!

Your home is so beautiful. I love your pillow, niche and your stunning blue and white. Thanks for being a part, once again of our tour.

Hola Laura!
Your home is lovely!!! Love the Spanish architecture of the home itself. I haven't really seen many Spanish style homes up our way in Denton County, mostly brick, which I love since I'm used to boring stucco tract houses in Southern California. ;) Anything different, for me, is good!

I do love how you've put the blue and white chinoiserie vases with just a few fall leaves tucked in among them. Very pretty! No, I don't think we have to put away everything just because the season changes. I've enjoyed coming over today, thank you. Happy to have been on the Fall In Love With Texas tour with you!!!

Have a great weekend and happy fall to you,
Barb Chapman

Sarah said...

Laura, yes, I know we live with touches of fall year round. Your home is beautiful, and your touches of everyday pieces are perfect. Austin is having a beautiful fall day today. I hope it continues! Happy Fall!

Crissy said...

Laura, I adore the blue and white pieces that catch the eye in your home. I agree--fall can be so many different things! I have really enjoyed getting a peek at how you like to decorate Casa Golondrina. It has given me lots of ideas for a fresh take on fall decor. Glad to be part of this fall tour with you! - Crissy

A long coat is a very trendy outfit in the fashion world because this coat makes us look simple and classic, and it also protects our bodies from cold winds. But sometimes it's difficult to choose a colour and design of coat, so I advise you to try this Downton Abbey Laura Carmichael Brown Coat this winter.
