We can hope, right?
We're doing our part by adding small touches around the house. From the front porch to the mantle, it's just enough a nod to the season ahead without being completely crazy. Crazy will come later.
For now, enjoy our little vignettes, and feel free to join in to do your part in beckoning Fall.
I'll leave you with my favorite part of seasonal decorating: the mantle. Though it's clearly in need of a little sprucing (what is happening with that curtain rod?) and maybe a change in art (Audubon please?), there's something very cozy about our stone fireplace. When the garlands are added, it becomes even more inviting. Is it any wonder people rush to the chairs by the fireside when they come over?
By the way, I had so many people ask about the "magnolia" garland on the mantle last year that I want to give you all a heads-up before they sell out again. I found them at Michael's, and by the time I had discovered them there were only two left. Thankfully, they're very long and very full.
Friends, I am off to do my morning routine. And after I drop off the children, there's an entire morning of fun in store with one of my favorite girls. I hope you all have a lovely day!
