fall is here! at least in my house.

i know it was 88 degrees this afternoon, but in the morning, it's 66. when i go outside in the morning and need a long sleeve, that can only mean one thing: fall is upon us. so i told nato to get the fall bin out from the basement and he made fun of me. whatever, i can withstand this mistreatment for the glory of fall decor.

so here is the mantel. i need a pennant banner or something for the middle. this can wait. i have a lot of of things going on this month. lila's birthday, nato's 30th birthday, and our 5th wedding anniversary. ya, i know...planning central around here. which is not my spiritual gift. shoot me.....

some of this is random, but just pretend like it's creative. i covered the books with paper bags and the rest of the stuff is just from off my shelves. simple is better this fall with all the business this month. and i'll be honest, simple is better when you're on a budget.

i can't wait to make soup and use my yellow bowls. mmm, creamy potato soup and french bread...

  6. I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling the fall-bug. It is by far the best time of the year!

  7. I feel like my tiny 325 sq ft apartment cant handle seasonal decorations. But I now want some pumpkins! everywhere. and covering the books in craft paper was genius!

  11. the table is from a garage sale. it came with 4 heavy chairs and i'm pretty sure Jesus himself made it. it's that glorious. the great part is i only paid $100 for all of it(minus the world market bench)! LOL. they practically gave it away. silly gooses.

  12. You have inspired me! fall is my FAVORITE! 3 of my babies, my hubby, my bro and sis, and 2 grandparents were born in the fall. The colors are glorious. I just love it...That said, last year, here in the desert {where we see no changing leaves} I did not even decorate. I am a Labor Day decorator usually, and I am gonna have James find our stuff this weekend. I will only be a week late. Thanks for the inspiration!
