Fall is just my favorite! But you knew that, right? :) If I could spend the entire autumn season all cozy and puttering around the house, that would be my dream. Alas, I was feeling a little out of sorts this past week because I didn’t have the time to fall-ify my house as much as I wanted to.
Book launch seasons are so exciting, but especially busy! (Speaking of my new book, don’t forget there are just two days left to get a set of ALL FOUR OF MY EBOOKS for FREE with the preorder of Simple Gatherings! The book releases on October 3, so it’s coming right up). You can pre-order it on Amazon or Barnes & Noble and then just enter the code here to grab your free e-book bundle!
It’s not pulled together yet, but I realized that being stuck in transition didn’t mean it had to “stay in limbo.” Ha!
Honestly, sometimes when I have a space that is in transition, I end up ignoring it for a long time. I’m bad about that. But LIMBO doesn’t make me happy at all. So instead of just continuing to ignore it, I decided I could at least ‘up the cozy factor’.
I feel like that’s the best thing about fall. You can do SO much to a space simply by focusing on making it all cozier.
I SO loved setting up these soft squishy gorgeous velvet pumpkins (from LoveFeast Shop)! But Jack didn’t seem too pleased. He was cracking me up! He acted like they were intruders. He always does that with fuzzy things, I’m not sure if he thinks they are animals or what. He’s weird. I was a little worried he would attack them, but somehow he calmed down and I think he even made friends with the one on the stool.
Anyway, these pumpkins are so GORGEOUS, I can’t even tell you how beautiful they are in person. I couldn’t stop staring at them. The real stems are incredible! And the gorgeous velvet and feathers on some of them are so striking and unique.
I’ll be sharing more of my velvet beauties on Instagram (and my stories)! The colors are stunning. There are some gray velvet ones that are among of my favorites, so be sure to head over to see more this week! I’m sure you’ll see them around my house here, too, all fall.
