There seems to be a conspiracy out there….and many bloggers are guilty of being a part of it. We just can’t seem to help ourselves. Our favorite craft stores and online home decor sites are some of the biggest perpetrators. We enter their doorways and stand aghast with mouths hanging open and eyes bugging. We feel disoriented and out of sorts.
Or we click over to our favorite online stores only to find they too are helping to spread this far and wide. It’s truly becoming an epidemic..and I might be one of the worst offenders!
It’s Seasonal Sabotage Disorder! You are probably all too familiar with it! It’s 90 degrees and you enter your favorite craft store and there it is. All of the Fall Decor neatly lined up row after row with sweet little elves…I mean employees…running around with buckets of Christmas ribbon and ornaments deciding where best to promote the newest line in Holiday Decor!
Or, maybe your visiting your favorite blogger..ahem…,before you head out to the pool, and she has a post up featuring fall mantel ideas featuring a gorgeous Balsam Hill Fall Wreath in all it’s fallish glory! And your mind’s starts whirling and you think, “I’m not ready for FALL!” I still have the AC running and the ice cream truck is still stopping on my corner.
But then you hesitate….taking in all of the gorgeous fall colors and the vintage silver tray from The Goodwill with the word FALL spelled out on it and you start to get that little tingly feeling. You know like the Grinch had when his heart grew 10 times that day! You start thinking about how you might decorate your fall mantel or your front porch. You start looking for ideas to transition your summer mantel into fall. Nothing to dramatic yet, it is still August after all.
Maybe some pretty fall leaves in a vintage silver trophy cup. Some tall wooden candles that add warmth. Maybe you start wondering how you could get your hands on a pretty fall wreath. One that has just the right mix of fallish colors with tiny corn cobs and corn husks. And maybe, just maybe you might let your mind wander all the way to December.
You start imagining evergreen and white lights and how pretty a winter garden wreath, festooned with cream berries and green pears would look hanging on your front door. Or maybe you are a traditionalist and would love a classic holiday fields wreath with preserved eucalyptus leaves, pinecones and touches of red and green! Then there are those of you who love the simplicity of a Balsam Fir lit wreath or garland!
That’s when you’ll know you have it too! Seasonal Sabotage Disorder! Ready for the cure…just give into it! Embrace these next seasons with open arms…and I’m going to help you!
