Jord Wood Watch: The Perfect Farmhouse Style Fashion Accessory

*This post is sponsored by Jord Wood Watches, all opinions are my own.

Hi everyone! Let’s have a conversation about the Jord wood watch company because their unique pieces are so drool-worthy!

And yes, I have been drooling over these hand-crafted wood watches from Jord for many months. Several bloggers are wearing them and snapping shots of their gorgeous timepieces. So, when Jord asked if I would review a watch for them, I was like…heck yes! I finally get to be in the circle of trust Jord! (If you ever have seen the movie, The Fockers…you know all about the circle of trust.)

Our home is filled with curated pieces that tell a story. I love chunky wood home decor accessories …candle holders, table legs, furniture pieces… you name it. So, when I was browsing the Jord website I knew exactly which timepiece I wanted; Cora series maple and silver. Now don’t get me wrong, it was a hard choice… there are so many beautiful wood grains and styles to choose from and I would have taken any of them. But, the maple and silver spoke to me and I wanted it to be part of my story.

This Jord watch was the perfect addition to my farmhouse style aesthetic. It is classic and timeless. It is neutral and bright. Feminine yet substantial. And, it has a kiss of bling in the swarovski crystal markers. It is the perfect fashion accessory for all you ladies who want to take farmhouse style a bit further and add a touch of it to your wardrobe.

Review of my Jord wood watch

Jord wood watch Cora series

It really is all in the details…

The wooden box, the sweet little herringbone pillow, the wooden tag (which has now been confiscated by my girls and repurposed as a Barbie pillow).

I honestly was so impressed by the craftsmanship of this watch. The maple wood is substantial, but not heavy. Its clasp is very easy to open and close. The glass face is crystal clear. Every inch of this watch has attention to detail including the little industrial sneak peek of the mechanics inside. Which, is totally up my ally since I also love industrial style. And, one the best parts of this watch is that it was customized to fit my wrist….for free! That in itself is a win. It arrived to fit my wrist perfectly, right. out. of. the. box.

This is my favorite fashion accessory!

Farmhouse Fall Home Tour

Hey everyone and happy fall to you! I have been waiting for the crisp air to once again join us. I am very fond of warm cozy sweaters, mugs full of warm beverages, and snuggling up with a good book. Today, I am so excited to be joining some very talented bloggers in a fall blog hop. My farmhouse fall home tour is filled with simple fall touches of natural elements and textures. This farmhouse tour proves that you don’t  have to spend a ton of money to create beautiful seasonal vignettes.

If you are new to Dandelion Patina blog, welcome! I am so glad you are here to share in my obsession with simple farmhouse style. I hope you will feel inspired.

Farmhouse Fall Home Tour with natural elements and textures


As I have mentioned, the autumn season is my favorite. It is a time when I tend to start “nesting”. I suppose it is a natural way of getting everything ready for the winter months; gathering the garden harvest, simmering soups and baking cookies on the weekends, and layering blankets and bedding to snuggle the little ones in at night.

Farmhouse Fall Home Tour Entry

I recently did some rearranging in our entryway/foyer. This space was originally a closet, but because of the tight fit, we removed it. We now have added tongue and groove plank to the walls. It is such a wonderful feeling to have a more open and airy foyer.

(This post contains affiliate links for your convenience. Please see full disclosure.)

I did have a larger white hutch in this space, but I have now pared down to a small trunk and this amazing painted sign from Hunt and Gather Goods. Believe me, our mess needs all the blessings it can get!

A simple farmhouse style decor touch was created with this DIY wood easel.

My all time favorite farmhouse style DIY we did in our home are these vertical industrial pipe shelves. Lately, I have been contemplating sanding them down raw and then bleaching the pieces. I can never leave well enough alone! For the farmhouse fall home tour, I styled these by simply adding dried hydrangeas from my backyard, a few white pumpkins, and dried artichokes. My ironstone gravy boat collection is growing too. Love this part of our home.

Farmhouse Fall Home Tour Dining Room

Our dining table centerpiece is simply a vintage picnic basket with a bouquet of fresh basil from the garden. This is the last of the basil and I wanted to get it inside before there was a freeze. The dining area smells amazing! And, when I need a bit of a room freshener all I need to do is sweep my hand across the leaves. Not to mention easy access for cooking as well.

Our dining room opens up right into the living room.

Farmhouse Fall Home Tour Living Room

I can’t tell you how much I am loving our IKEA Ektorp sofa and chairs! I was a bit hesitant to make the purchase due to kiddos and pooches. Ya know…dirty hands and paws. But, it really is satisfying to pull the slipcovers off, wash them, and hang them on the line. They look brand new! You just can’t do that with a normal upholstered sofa. I will never go back to the traditional sofas…upholstered or leather.

I tried to keep the fall decorating consistent throughout the spaces in our home. It was pretty easy with all the dried hydrangeas I was able to use from our shrubs. If you ever wonder what type of shrubs to plant in your landscape, limelight hydrangeas are the best!

To end the farmhouse fall tour, I thought I would share one of my pumpkin finds. I like to name my pumpkins, crazy I know. This one is Bad Hair Day! I fell in love with her funky stem. For me, it is all about the stem first, then the pumpkin. This gal knows how to be wild and crazy in her own way. And, on those Monday mornings when my hair is not cooperating, just know I am showing my wild and crazy side.
