1) Pray 2) Clean 3) Organize 4) Decorate
Seriously, I've put these four ideas to some pretty extreme tests over the years, but probably no more so than in recent times with nuclear weapons being tested, the ugliness in Charlottesville, fires in multiple states, Hurricane Harvey, earthquakes in Mexico, & Hurricane Irma! For several days, it seemed way too trivial to do Fall decorating, but I found "calm" in the doing....the colors, the smells & the feelings that Fall exudes, filled me with gratitude, thanksgiving and compassion. It has taken several more days to give myself permission to write this post and share with you some Fall decor around our home. I hope you enjoy, because there will be more coming over the next few weeks.
My "eclectic" or "boho" style will simply not allow me to go all white & neutral.....
I need COLOR!
Don't get me wrong, I think little white and pastel pumpkins are adorable, and I do have my fair share; but those little pale rascals have plenty of color to keep them company!
My china cupboard is filled mostly with family treasures, but this guy perches here
I love this big old wooden bowl....the pompom garland is my "cheap" take on those chunky
beads that I keep seeing on other blogs but haven't been able to find!
The metal art piece in the background is something we found on our travels last month and will be going on an outside wall in our backyard....just as soon as it cools down a bit!
The "Hello Autumn" print is a free printable from Carol at The Red Painted Cottage.
A sweet little dish that had been my great-grandmothers...I cherish it!
It's always fun to switch out pillow covers each season.
I am feeling so truly thankful and blessed.
This little spot always makes me smile!
I hope all of you have a wonderful week and continue to pray & do whatever you can for all the victims of nature's recent fury.
I'm hope to be joining these lovely ladies this week:
