Faux Falling Time

Hey everyone!  I'll be sharing another "health update" in a day or two (Chemo #3 happens tomorrow), but for now I want to share some "Faux Falling" that's been going on around our home.  A month ago, I wasn't sure I'd be up to doing anything seasonally; but I've been so blessed to feel quite good most of the time.  The Man got all of my boxes from the garage storage, but made me promise to take my time and rest when I needed it.  Well, that's exactly what I did.....it took me a good week and a half, but everything is finished!  I'm only going to share bits at a time, so the posts won't be so photo-heavy.  Let's get started, shall we?

Today, I am inviting you into our sitting area.

I haven't purchased many new items this season, but I did find some fun pillow covers at Hob Lob on sale for 50% off!  I'm being quite a bit more bold with pillow choices, and I'm kind of lovin' it!

I adore this owl pillow!

I kind of giggle every time I walk past this room.....those bright orange pillows just do that to me!

Simple, simple on the coffee table.

I love this time of day, when the late afternoon sun brings such a warm glow to this room.

I always find a way to use this cloche somewhere in my decor.

As simple as it gets.

Love adding some fun to these bookshelves.

If you think that's an embroidery hoop, you are right......stretched some burlap in the hoop and added a banner that I made last year using scrapbook paper!

The wood "Welcome" blocks are another new item from HL at 40% off!

Remember the embroidery hoop spheres I made a couple of months ago?  Well, they seemed like the perfect landing spot for these 2 very thin pumpkins!

And just because I know you all need some super-cuties to look at.........

Avery (aka: Littlest Miss), age 4, first day of Pre-K!  They are called "Ladybugs" at her school.....how cute is that!

Flynn (aka: Little Miss), age 7, first day of 2nd Grade!

Avery all ready for her very first soccer practice.....I didn't even know 4 year olds played soccer!  Would you just look at the size of those chin guards.....Power on Littlest Miss!

Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share some "Faux Falling" and my two youngest granddaughters!  I hope you all have a wonderful week!

  2. Carol - Love all your bits of Fall! Will be praying for your next treatment.


  3. I have my bins out too, I know I have more but I'm debating whether to get them out or just leave it! I'll be praying for you Carol:)

  4. Coming from Amaze Me Monday... Your home is lovely and the touches of fall enhance it well! Love the pillows, especially the Owl one! Praying your treatment goes well, bless you! ~Rhonda

  5. You have completed more fall decorating than I have, Carol! Although I got all my 'stuff' out, I just haven't had the gusto to get going on displaying it! Sending prayers your way for tomorrow! Blessings, Cindy xoxo

  6. I love your little bit of decorating--that's all I've done, too. I just love the WELCOME and I have to say-I've never seen pillow covers at HL. Are they by the fabric?

    That Avery is a doll!

    Sending lots of love!

  7. Your grand children are gorgeous! Love your fall decorations. I really have to get my stuff out. Not sure why I'm dragging my feet this year to do it. Probably because the summer went by much too quickly. I can see why that pop of color in your pillows would make you happy :-)
    Have a great day

  8. Awwww the kiddos are just too cute! I think the little ones in uniforms are just the cutest things ever!

  9. First off, I am thrilled that you are feeling so well! Your Fall touches are so pretty and what a savvy use of embroidery hoops. Love, love the snippets of blue and your cloche.
    Thinking of you today and sending many wishes for a smooth infusion.

  10. Your granddaughters are just too cute! Miss Avery is ready to win!!!

    Your living room looks really nice with all the fall accents! I especially love your oval embroidery hoop banner...Pinned!!!!

  11. Everything looks great, Carol! I am just starting to get in the fall mood, The weather is starting to change and that helps a bit! Your granddaughters are adorable!

  12. You have such a talent for decor Carol! Those adorable little girls are getting so big!

  13. Your granddaughters are so cute! Wishing them all a safe and fun school year. Love your decor! I think my favorite is the pumpkins inside the embroidery hoop spheres. So neat! And that owl pillow!!! So perfect for fall!

  14. Your fall decor is really so pretty, Carol...those hoops look great encircling those pumpkins. And what I can I say about those darling kiddos? They are just adorable!

  15. I love your pillows and all the little touches you added Carol! But most of all, I adore your beautiful grand babies!
