Wow, two posts in one day -- y'all are so doggone lucky! Is anyone else "jumping out of your skin" to get started on your Fall decorating? We are still very hot here, but everywhere I turn, something seems to remind me of Fall. I had to run some errands the other day, and I was just naturally drawn to a little orange tee and this......
I love my pretty orange leather purse and use it for any season, but this particular day, it just reminded me of Fall -- pumpkins, maybe?
Do y'all get emails from this store? They are a curse, I tell ya', a curse! Well, no not really, I love this store. They have wonderful sales, and I only buy when they are having a sale. Their hand soaps are truly wonderful, especially the seasonal ones.........
Really, how could I not think about Fall when I walked in and saw all these little cuties just waiting to hop in my basket? Look at those names -- Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Pumpkin Cupcake, Pumpkin Caramel Latte (swoon), Sugar Maple, Autumn Day, Heartland Harvest Marmalade & Creamy Pumpkin -- be still my heart! They truly do smell like their names!
Well, with all those subtle reminders of the approaching season, I could simply wait no longer. Today I did this! Oh, yes I did!
I mean, seriously, the timing was perfect. The Man had to take the Mustang out for a little spin, and all of my Fall decor is stored above the car, so......perfect timing!
I didn't get very far because of the heat, but I did start some sorting. It's always fun to re-discover all the goodies. I love spending time in the evening, multi-tasking with the TV & my iPad, reading blog posts and browsing around Pinterest. My searches lately have been all about Fall, so I decided to start a new board and call it Fabulous Fall 2013. If you want to check it out, go HERE.
How do y'all go about any decorating task? Do you plan, repeat a previous design, copycat or just "fly by the seat of your pants?" I tend to do all of the above. I am basically a planner, though, so I always have notebooks and sketch pads scattered around and.......
when an idea crosses my little brain, I try to sketch it out.
I am truly no artist, but I know what I'm drawing and that's all that matters.
Of course, I do need my assistant. Now it doesn't look like she's contributing much,
but that little paw is actually resting on my shoulder, giving me little "Atta Girl" pats! Wow, my sweet hubby giving me eye rolls, my little "fuzzy" buddy purring in my ear, and my Fall decor sitting in the garage just waiting to be placed in exactly the right locations -- life just doesn't get any better than this!
Hope y'all have a wonderful weekend! We are supposed to get rain -- YIPPEE and fingers crossed!
