Cozy Fall Things

Happy Friday, friends!  I hope you’ve had a great week.  I’ve been loving popping into some of my favorite shops to look at the cozy things they have for Fall.  It’s a fun way to get ideas and to ease into the season, don’t you think?  Today I have a round-up of some cozy Fall things, including a couple of pieces with a styling tip.  Have a great weekend!

Highland Yard Vintage: The Inspired Home – Fall Edition

Over the weekend I celebrated Fall in all sorts of fun ways!  😉  I went to another Highland Yard Vintage event, this time their Fall edition, and it did not disappoint!

I absolutely love the gorgeous layered displays, the vintage pieces mixed with “junk” objects, and of course the beautiful Fall things that just make my heart sing this time of year.  🙂  I did find some treasures — some adorable mini squash that I can’t wait to use for November Fall decor, and a solid brass swan figurine to go with the two that my Gramma left for me.  That was a pretty magical find!  I felt like she was there with me.

Inside of the antique store that Highland Yard Vintage shares a location with (Merchant Square Antiques), I found a large silver tray that I am using with my Halloween decor, and a pretty ‘lil cloche that is just like this!  So excited to use that for some fun vignettes.

Anyway, if you’re local to Arizona, Highland Yard Vintage is not to be missed, and I have an absolute ball every time I go.  To see my photos of last month’s event, head on over here.

Fall As a Feeling 2017

Good morning to you!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I have a confession to make… I put up our Halloween decor over the weekend, and I am SO excited to share with you.  I’ll be waiting a few weeks just so that those who are later to get excited about Halloween can still join us.  But how ’bout all of my early-Halloween-lovin’ peeps — where you at?!  😉

Last year around this time, I shared a post about Fall as a feeling.  For me, Fall is all about how it makes me feel, especially since the part of Arizona that I live in doesn’t get a huge weather or scenery change.  It makes me happy to appreciate and embrace this season by noticing lots of cozy texture, or a cool breeze in the air (that I could just be imagining!), or the Halloween section at Target.  I celebrate each little detail, and that is why I love Fall.

Little did I know last September that we would be in our very first house just a few short weeks later.  The process happened so fast — we hadn’t even started looking yet but about six weeks after I wrote my Fall As a Feeling post, we were all moved in.  It’s amazing how things happen.  I have enjoyed each season in our new home, and I have loved it tenderly, and you bet your booty I am absolutely savoring a real Fall season in our new space.

Here are some pictures of what Fall feels like to me.  What does Fall feel like to you?

Fall Color Stories

I see color palettes everywhere…  It’s one of the ways that I feel most vibrant and alive, to notice colors and patterns wherever I go.  Fall colors, to me, are warm and cozy, with mustard-y yellows and sweet potato oranges.  I best equate colors with food.  😉  Broadening your color vocabulary is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself — it opens up your imagination in the best possible way.

Next week we’ll be in September… the beginning of the ‘-ber’ months.  I’m so looking forward to this season of nesting in our home.  Last year we were blessed to be in before Christmas but that left us rushing around and our house definitely feels more like ‘home’ this year.  Here’s to the beginning of Fall!  I promise I will ease into it here on the blog for those of you still enjoying the last bits of Summer.

Garage Organization Inspiration

This coming weekend I have a hot date with my husband and our garage.  Doesn’t that sound romantic?  😉  Our garage is not too messy at this point — we haven’t even been in this house for a year yet — but it is feeling disorganized.  And just like my quest to get the inside under control before the hustle and bustle of the Holidays, I want this work to extend to the garage.

A lot of our bins aren’t labeled, we have things we could part with, we do have shelves but they are kind of jumbled with things right now, and our floor is epoxy and could use a good hose-down.  These are the things homeownership dreams are made of!  Lol.  But seriously… I’m just glad we have a garage.

I thought I’d corral some fun garage organization inspiration to get me in the mood.  It’s kind of one of those things you have to be in the mood for, you know?  Plus it is going to be HOT so we’ll need to get out there early.  I’m tellin’ ya — romance.

Home Depot

We are very curious about these track systems.  Have you used one before?  We like the idea because they seem to be customizable depending on what you want to store.

BHG

I like this idea of storing canvas bags and paper bags on the side of a rack.  This is something we could implement easily!

Harvard Homemaker

I also love this idea for canvas bags — we could just make one of these hook systems and we’d be set.

4

Just a Girl

This just looks so pretty.  I love the mix of wicker baskets and plastic/metal bins.  I can think of a TON of stuff I could store in here.  Looks like we need another shelving unit.  😉

5

I Heart Organizing

This is really fun, too.  We wouldn’t need these bins and baskets for toy storage at this point but we could definitely figure out other uses for these storage solutions.  I’m sure that a lot of these types of containers can be found at the Dollar Store, too — one of my favorite places to shop for plastic baskets.

6

A Thoughtful Place

Draping our shelving units with inexpensive curtains could be a good way to keep the dust at bay.  Something I definitely haven’t thought of before but makes a lot of sense!

7

The Home Edit

And finally… This is what our garage day will mostly consist of — getting labels on things!  I have several un-labeled bins in there and this little project is the highest on my to-do list.

What is your favorite garage organizing hack?

The Beginnings of Fall Nesting

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.

P1010283

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.

P1010284

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.  🙂

How do you nest for Fall?
