Decor seasonally styled...

I have a hard time when the season of summer ends
and it becomes fall as you probably have already figured
out by my previous post.
To help with the transition I decorate or what I like to call
a little re-merchandising of my house. It's a mind trick I play
on myself and you know what, it works.

Here are some of the little things I do to spice up the season.

a little burlap on the table...

leaves are natures way of dressing the season...

accessorize the mantel with touches of fall...

different nuts sprinkled around candles add textures and brown tones...

placing orange and white pumpkins balance the orange...

sunflowers are my favorite transition flowers...

a few pillows or blankets in oranges and browns make a room
that much cozier...

The sun is still out which makes this all that much easier and of course little changes
in my scenery goes with out being said.
Have a little fun with your own seasonal changes.

Tis the season to be Fall...

Today was the last day of Summer but it felt more
like the first day of Fall.
I'm a lover of Summer and mourn just a little every year
when it comes to an end but I would be lying to say their isn't
something about Fall or better yet an Indian Summer that I did like.

Fall Decor and Warm Browns

Donuts on a cold Fall morning


chunky sweaters, boots and scarves




Here's to a beautiful Fall
and a farewell to another Summer.

Back to School...

It's that time of year again,
when the weather starts showing little hints of fall,
summer vacations come to an end
and kids go back to school.
We don't have two legged kids (we have the four legged kind)
but we do go back to school in my house
because you see, my Mr O is a music teacher
for both elementary and middle school at a local
private school.
So, we do the annual back to school shopping,
you can't have your teacher wearing last years garb.
It's an adjustment for me and my "boys".
They spend more time at home alone and well,
I lose my house husband which means I have to
start doing my part around the house.
Like I said it's an adjustment.

So to all those amazing teachers and
their students...

Welcome back to School!

in progress...

I don't know if you all remember but a few weeks ago
on my FB page and maybe here, but I can't remember,
I mentioned that I would be getting space for a studio
all for me.

Well, after some serious cleaning, moving stuff, getting rid
of stuff I can say it is finally starting to come together.
Today, we moved my new (new to me) table, locker
and what will be a book case into the space.

There is still much work to be done but I can finally
start seeing what it's going to look like and what I want
it to feel like.

I have to say I am pretty excited and down right excited!

Here are some pictures, excuse the quality as I took them
with my phone but you'll get the idea.

This is the bookcase, I just need to add a shelf.

My table!

I love the patina on this locker, eventually it will house 
by biking gear.

I look forward to time in there,
drawing, designing and sewing.
I'll keep you posted on it's progress.

Here's to creating your space to
ignite your creativity!
