Displaying Small Trinkets & Treasures {Day 10: Loving Fall}

Glass Jar Displays via Miss Mustard Seed

I love the fall ritual of putting away all those lingering summery (or unnecessary) accessories and bringing out special favorites for this season. I’ve been doing a lot of fall nesting around my house this weekend, and I can’t wait to show you some new updates! Little by little, my home continues to evolve towards a cozier fall and winter feel. And if I dare I say it, I’ve even started preparing for Christmas. I know, it might seem early. But, I’m loving it!

Tip: As you are nesting, find a few new creative ways to display and group together some of your more fall-ish /wintery or holiday favorites.

These jars from Miss Mustard Seed (above) are so cute (they remind me of my glass lamps so I’m totally going to try this idea!). They really help the accessories tell a wonderful and intriguing story, my FAVORITE kind of decorating! This idea is perfect for people like me who might have a little phobia about too many little cluttery things sitting around and covering every surface. I love ideas for how to corral, contain and show things off in a creative way.

Happy fall nesting!

Settling In {Day 9: Loving Fall}


Getting Cozy on Darker Fall Days

The other day I posted this cell phone pic on Instagram (excuse the quality, but it’s just a real life moment from a cell phone!). It’s a view I see every day. But on a recent very wet, dreary dark afternoon, it struck me how easy it is to let the darker days of fall and winter drag us down. I try to not let that happen.

I love settling into the house, especially in this season! For me “settling in” to fall and winter months means paying close attention to the mood outside, so I can adjust my mood upward if necessary to fully embrace the beauty of what the day offers inside, in this season, at this moment.

Fortunately we have a lot of big windows so our house stays pretty bright most of the time, yet when the clouds hang over us on the dreariest of Seattle days and the winds begin to howl, it’s up to me to not let myself get swept up in the downward spiral of darkness I see around me right outside those windows.

When days like that come, I start running around the house, turning on lamps and lights and yes, the fireplace. Sometimes I bake a delicious treat or pour another cup of coffee.

As soon as I can, I get cozy in my favorite chair or plop down on the sofa so I can settle in, cherishing the coziness of this house, the safety of the roof over our head and the comfort of being at home with the ones I love! It’s really what I love about fall at home, it’s an opportunity to be present and mindful of the blessings in my home.
