Our house is small but mighty at just over 1,000 square feet. Nothing could have made me happier than having a cozy little nest as our first humble home. 🙂 It’s a sweet little place that we have been so blessed with — I hate to leave it for the day and love coming home to it — what’s better than that?
Because of its size, I only have room for the things I really love. And a lot of the stuff I love is really old stuff! Adding antiques and vintage items to our home is something that brings our space unique character and warmth — and I love when these special things find me.
Fall is the time when I “bring out all my cozies” – A.K.A., bring out all of my beautiful treasures that may have been in hiding for the Spring and Summer months. Typically beginning in January, I like to create a ‘clean slate’ for us with minimal excess decor and I enjoy that quiet in our space. But right now…? Right now I crave warmth and the familiarity of so many of my favorite things…
Right about now is the time that I become a putterer… Is that a word…? I think it should be if it’s not.
This is the time of year when I spend my mornings moving from small task to small task in our home. Maybe I wipe down the kitchen, or water our rosemary outside, or make a new stack of books… Maybe I add some pumpkins to our decor, or bake some bread, or organize a drawer or two…
Puttering is why I love Fall so, so much. And arranging my special things is the perfect puttering activity to do on a Fall morning. 🙂
Do you like to putter? What kind of puttering do you like to do?
I hope you have a wonderful Monday!
