Fall Touches

Hi all!

Are you getting sick of me talking about fall? I promise this is my last post for a bit. I wanted to share a few peeks at my fall decor. I had grand plans but once I got down to it I decided to save my energy for Christmas since we're hosting this year.

Here is my fall mantel. I liked the idea of keeping it neutral. I made the moss wreath for around $3 and the rest of the decor cost around $11. Not too bad!

This is in front of the tv......just a few pumpkins!

This is the yarn wreath I made. It was easy to make!

I love my Cinderella pumpkin!

The sink area was one of my favorite parts of the house when we were looking at houses.

I bought mums that aren't blooming yet. I can't wait until they do!

Fall Pillows

Good morning!

I hope you all had a great weekend! One of my best friends came to visit and we had a wonderful time shopping, playing with M, and just hanging out. I am slowly working on my fall decor and will be sharing it soon. I bought a few pumpkins for outside and plan to buy a mum or two this week.

One thing I always want to do around this time of the year is buy new throw pillows with an autumn feel. I think I'll hold off this year and try to buy some at the end of the season.

However, here are a few types of fall pillows that I love:

I love the idea of a few velvet pillows in coordinating colors. The bad thing is that I only want them for a few months and then I want to put out red and white buffalo check pillows for Christmas. :)

Fall Favorites

Hi all!

I apologize for the lack of in depth posts lately. Miss M is on a sleep strike so I'm not firing on all cylinders this week. In an effort to not totally fall off the face of the earth I figure it's better to at least post pretty pictures than nothing at all.

Here are a few Fall Favorites I have pinned recently:

Here's hoping I get more sleep and am feeling more crafty in the upcoming days!

Lonny Magazine Sept/Oct 2011


I am happy to be back after a bit of a hiatus with family. While out of town I had a severe allergic reaction to something and broke out in a combo of hives and other itchy rashes over most of my body. Ugh. I was miserable for days and after a misdiagnosis and a day and a half of not holding sweet baby M I am happy to know I'm not contagious. I'm still not sure what I had a reaction to but I'm thinking it was something seasonal. Either way, I'm ready to look normal again but am mostly thankful to be less itchy and not having to stress about contaminating everyone around me.

Needless to say it has been a stressful few days! Today we are enjoying temps in the 60's, which I'm pretty happy about (partly because I have to wear pants and long sleeves to cover my bumps) but also because it's starting to feel like fall! I'm off to do some fall decor shopping today!

Have you seen the latest issue of Lonny Magazine? Here are a few images that struck me this morning.

I'm inspired by the greenery on the mantle. I need to keep my eye out for something similar.

I love the neutral palette!

I hope you all are having a great week!
