So, I'm going to be decorating for "fall" soon, just to convince my cave dwelling self that it is going to happen at some point at time. Pinterest has been a huge huge tease for me. I freaking love Pinterest, it combines my love of lists and my love of pictures...it's the perfect planning website. Here are a few of the best fall decorations I found.
1. Cute Pumpkins
I really love these cute pumpkins I found on Pinterest. I really do try to stay away from a Halloween theme (mostly for religious reasons), and I like that these are simple and pretty without being a "Jack O' Lantern".
These vines are so dainty and pretty it's hard to believe you can make them yourself!
|I can think of a dozen uses for these.|
3. Candles, candles, and more candles
I absolutely LOVE candles. I think they spruce even the barest space up. Candles are warm and inviting, calling to mind the most basic needs of men: fire. There are plenty of fall scented candles out there, I really love Slatkin and Co. and Yankee Candle Co. While they are a bit pricier, they make up for that in scent. They will really last quite a while too.
4. Beautiful Paper Wreath
Another craft from Martha Stewart (the woman is the craft goddess for a reason!). I just love the detail on this wreath, and something about the paper is so charming. If I were to do it (and I may, if I do I will show and tell!), I would definitely use an older book that shows it's age, it would look marvelous!
|This will look awesome using an old book as paper!|
5. More Pumpkins...wrapped up!
Beauty is in little things, and in this case it's these super cute, mini pumpkins. I think I may go haywire choosing ribbons to make these!
|Too cute to eat!|
Eventually, A and I may move to Idaho. A grew up there and it has been sounding nicer and nicer as the years go by. While dealing with the snow is certainly a little nerve-wracking for this native Californian, I feel that perhaps it may be the right choice for us in a few years. That's then and this is now. I may have to make a little trip up to Big Bear just to feel the seasons change!
