Falling for Fall

Falling for Fall


I‘ve been doing a little bit more fall nesting around my house this week. I LOOO-OO-VE this time of year!

Yesterday was a pretty nice Fall day, a little sunny and crisp outside. I puttered around a bit tidying up and while I didn’t make a huge dent in my housekeeping (eh hem), I dd put away more summer-y-ish stuff and brought out more fall decor.

Falling for Fall

I am very much craving warmer and softer textures! Jack agrees, warm and soft textures are the best. He cracks me up, his legs and ears go every which way when he takes his puppy naps. His feet were way up on the wall right before I snapped his picture. Have I mentioned that he weighs almost 30 pounds now? Four months old and 30 pounds.

OK, where was I? Oh yes.  I’m ready to say good-bye to summer. I’d still like the sunshine though. Cool air, changing leaves and sunny skies. I don’t ask for much. Oh, and a cozy velvet couch near a fireplace. FALL PERFECTION.

You know we only have like about three days left until 31 Days: Inspired for the Holidays begins? I am super super excited about this topic (have I mentioned that yet? ) and already have some great ideas and inspiration lined up for the entire month.

hint:  I’m having a giveaway this weekend for those super cozy adorable plush pumpkins. You know you want to squish one.

It is going to be a good month.

Falling for Fall

Tell me. Am I the only one who dreams about velvet couches this time of year? It is like my fall alarm clock goes off late September and VELVET COUCHES pop into my head. I must have an aversion to my white slipcovers in the fall.

Now I’m thinking about a rusty cinnamon colored velvet sofa.
Yeah. That would be yummy.
