Good morning to you! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was pretty low-key, which was much-needed.
I am itching for Fall… this is not a secret. This past weekend I spent some time at Target and HomeGoods and found some fun things. I took down Summer on Sunday and put away the Fall decor that I purchased into my Fall bin, and then began deep cleaning the house. My goal is to have the house deep-cleaned in a few weeks after spending a few weekends doing the work, and then I will feel good about putting up Halloween/Fall/Christmas. You know how it feels when your house just gets dirty. I’m really good about keeping up with general tidiness but I feel like a couple times a year it feels really nice to go deeper than that. I don’t really have time for much more than that!
At HomeGoods I found some cute velvet pumpkins for a really great price ($9.99!) and some fresh pillows for the season, which I’ll show you below. At Target I bought a few styrofoam pumpkins that don’t feel super cheap from the Dollar Spot and I was also really excited because a bunch of their glass hurricanes were on sale for under $10! So I bought two of those in different sizes and although I’m not certain how I will use them now, things like that are indispensable and really great for seasonal decor.
Does anyone know what this plant is? I bought it at Sprouts and forgot to look at the tag! Also that little taper candle holder was a gift from my in-laws from their recent trip to Boston. Isn’t it unique? Of course I love the black and white. 😉
This is always a favorite spot for me to photograph. 🙂 I took out all of the seashells and am left with this simple little vignette.
It feels good to have it cleaned up!
The giant ceramic seashell that was holding our remotes got packed away and our silver bowl returned. And the Summer napkins are packed, too — these blue and white ones are from Bed Bath and Beyond.
See that cute little pouf back there? He’s like a little furry monster. I have been waiting for this one to go on sale at Target for quite some time and just the other day we stopped there and the price had dropped below $25. I love the warmth and texture that he adds to our space. And yes, the pouf is a he. What should we name him? 😉
Those bird pillows are the new ones… They spoke Fall to me without being too theme-y. And this time of year when I nest it’s usually when I layer and layer… So I put our furry blanket from Restoration Hardware underneath the striped Ikea throw. The brown color of the furry blanket brings out the pretty taupes and browns in the bird pillows, and there’s some gray in there, too!
These are some pretty flowers on our kitchen table right now. My momma brought them over to me on Friday evening and I am loving watching them open up. 🙂
