fall maple leaf

As you know (because I’ve probably said it a million times!), I follow a ton of blogs.  I love the inspiration & seeing the creativity of all the fantastic bloggers!  But…following a lot of bloggers can be overwhelming.  Sometimes I get extremely behind when keeping up with everyone on the internet!  But yesterday, I decided to finally go through all of my favorite blogs & read all of the things, so here’s a huge list of the links I loved!  There’s so much good stuff!

Styling a ceramic pumpkin found at the thrift store!

Check out this ceramic pumpkin I got at a thrift store!

When I saw this on display, I knew I had to have it!  There was another customer also looking at the display, so I wanted to get it ASAP.  The problem was, I was carrying a large piece of furniture (to be revealed in a future post!) & I couldn’t grab it!  My husband was already at the register, so I’m trying to quietly motion for him to come over & pick it up for me.  Of course, he’s not understanding my dire situation, but I finally get him to come over & get it!

Paperbark Maple treePaperbark Maple treePaperbark Maple tree

When we went to the arboretum recently, I was so inspired by all the flowers & trees!

Since we’re in the middle of an entire regrading project in our yard, we can’t plant anything & I’m incredibly impatient about it!  I want to plant everything!  (I did sneak in a lilac bush earlier this year!)

I’ve gone back & forth on whether or not to write a ‘Fall TV’ post this year.

It didn’t seem like there were very many good fall TV show premieres this year!  I was kind of disappointed, until I realized something:

TV has completely changed.

The Tale of Two Milk Cans

So, I stumbled upon these vintage milk cans at a yard sale this summer. They came pre-painted by their previous owner, and honestly, I've been vibing with their rustic charm. I've been toying with the idea of giving them a fresh coat of paint—white, black, silver? The possibilities are endless, and indecision is real, my friends. But hey, I've got all winter to dream up their next look!


"Sometimes, the beauty lies in the imperfections."

From Summer Blooms to Fall Mums

When I first brought these beauties home, I filled one with summer flowers. The other? Well, it patiently awaited its turn. As summer bid adieu, my blooms started to look a bit sad. Enter mums—the quintessential fall flower. And guess what? The store pots fit perfectly into the milk cans. It's like the universe aligned just to make my decor dreams come true!

Sending you all the creative vibes for your next decor adventure! ๐ŸŒฟ✨

My husband & I went to an arboretum last week.  It was my first time ever going!  I thought I would hate it, but I really loved it!  We did a ton of walking, but it actually wasn’t too bad because we took our time.  We ended up spending 4+ hours there & I want to go back to explore more!

Home decor trends

It seems that no matter where you go, you’ll find the same pieces of home decor.  I’m not usually one to follow trends, but the same ones over & over are difficult to miss!

After going to a few home decor stores over the weekend, I decided to gather together the things I’ve been seeing a lot of lately!

August is when I officially gave up on the garden.  There were just too many failing plants & there was no way the garden was coming back…

Bartlett Pears

My parents have a massive pear tree in their backyard.

It produces zillions of pears every year!

Okay, maybe not zillions but a lot.  Like so many that I filled up like 10 decent sized produce boxes & gave up because there were still sooo many pears left on the tree.

Happy Labor Day!  How is it September already?!

For once, I’m still trying to hang on to summer!  I just want a few more days to soak up the sun!  It’s supposed to be extremely hot this week & I don’t hate it!

I thought I’d pop in & share a few links I’ve been loving lately!
