I thought that title up all by myself. I was sitting there, thinking to myself about everything under the sun, and it hit me. I want to do a post about fall. About all the lovely things I want to do for fall. To share how I would like to decorate for my favorite time of year. And I had the perfect title.
Then I realized that sounded like an armpit problem.
Hopefully all the pretty pictures will distract you.
As always, most of my inspiration comes via pinterest.
I found this a long time ago. The link is here. It’s just a step-by-step photo guide of how to make this. It ain’t rocket science friends. You paint, you lay down a leaf, you spray. I think it would be perfect with some nice fall colors. A rich chocolate brown, a fun orange, maybe a sky blue just for fun. I like it already.
Y’all I’m becoming obsessed with bunting. I love it. All of it. For every occasion. Always. Forever. That kind of obsessed. The link for the above photo leads to Dream Book Design. I snooped around her blog while I was there, and she seems super fun and very talented. Definitely check it out. I’m thinking of making one with some leftover burlap I have from the bedroom curtains. Maybe on a small scale, to hang across the mirror in the living room.
You guys know how much I love neutrals. No? You’ve forgotten? Check it out in this post. This pumpkin fits into my neutral obsession like a spoon fits into a bowl of ice cream.
A wreath. This year, I’m making a new wreath for our front door. I love the soft colors (you might even say neutral) of this wreath from thriftary. It’s very fallish, without being in-your-face orange and obnoxious.
Now THIS is what I’m so looking forward to. Remember how I painted those root beer bottles back this past spring? Well this little beauty from choosetothrive has inspired me to tweak those babies a little bit to create something similar. I’m thinking about hanging pendants from the bottleneck to say “Fall” or something along those lines and stuff them with hay. In my head it’s the super cutest thing ever. EVER.
Boys and girls I wish so BAD that you could smell this through the screen. Actually, I wish so bad that I could smell this through the screen. And you if you benefited from me being able to smell through the screen, that would be okay too. Perfecto!
Sooooo, this isn’t exactly what I was looking for but you get the idea. Our first fall married I found febreeze’s harvest scent, and I’ve never looked back. It’s the absolute best for that all-house smell that makes you feel warm and tingly for the season.
Oh, cinnamon-scented-pine-cones how I love thee. Let me count the ways.
These are my hands-down favorite fall smell. I would buy bags of these by the hundreds if my lover would let me. A nice basket brimming over with these precious little guys ushers in fall with a bang.
Yeah….food. Both my arch nemesis and my sweetest friend. Fall has the best coffee. For example:
How about some delicious pumpkin spice lattes from the crockpot? Urban Nester (she’s one of my new favorite bloggers!) provides the perfect low-key recipe for pumpkin spice lattes. Now I’m not as obsessed with pumpkin during the fall as I am with peppermint during the winter, but I would never turn down a good pumpkin spice latte. Life’s just too short to miss out on these.
Caramel Apples. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm! I confess, I ate these during the summer too. They’re just so good. Check out this post about John’s carnival for the link on how to make caramel apples. It’s an easy and yummy recipe.
And while you’re sipping on your pumpkin spice latte have a slice of this. It’s my favoritest ever coffee cake that I found on allrecipes.com a couple of years ago. This recipe is so good I printed it out and keep it in my real-life cookbook. That’s some serious deliciousness, my friends.
Now that it’s not quite so bloomin’ hot outside, it’s time to take me out to the ballgame! We want to check out at least one game before the end of the season, preferably on a day when the high doesn’t peak over 90 degrees. Let’s see if we get our wish!
