Well, my friends, apparently I don’t totally stink on camera because I was invited back for the 6th (what??!) time to share a craft live on the air on the Portland based AM Northwest show! This time it was to share my chalkboard leaf napkin rings.
This is my rally cry friends!
I’m never.going.back to stressful, time-consuming seasonal decorating. When I think back on the years where I would feel all of the pressure to come up with something fresh and creative and more likely to get pinned a bajillion times, I’m seriously embarrassed. Truly. Because it was such a waste.
A waste of my time, my energy, my resources.
Hey guys! It is so boiling hot over here at redheadcandecorate.com (88 degrees) that I am wearing flip flops today, and my air conditioning bill is higher than it was in July. Isn’t that crazy? I guess I’m not really complaining, but it does feel odd when I do a little Fall decorating. Our porch this year is all about “being cozy” and boy we are definitely cozy up here in Michigan this year 😯 . So, to cool us off, and hopefully put us all in the mood for Fall, I ventured out in beautiful blog land and collected “6 Gorgeous Fall Tours (you will love)”…
I have a confession to make…
sometimes I talk to inanimate objects.
Case in point, over the weekend I began packing away the last remnants of my summer decor to make way for all of the fall-ness to come, and as I placed a bag of seashells in the plastic summer decorating bin I whispered to them, “See you next year guys!”
And, I know that when it comes time to open the lid of the box of Christmas ornaments I will gaze down at them and quietly say, “Hello, old friends!”
This is totally normal, right? Right? Because, I’m not sure I really have any control over it. It just comes over me.
This need to bid farewell or say hello to my seasonal decor.
Happy fall my friends! I’m so thrilled to be sharing my fall entry decor with you today AND teaming up with Kirklands who have generously offered you the chance to win a $100 gift card to their store!
You know, I firmly believe that the old adage of never having a “second chance to make a first impression” holds true for both people and homes.
And this is why I particularly love the opportunity each season to create a warm welcome through my entry decor for anyone who crosses our threshold.
And the best part is that it doesn’t have to be complicated.
A couple of weeks ago the doorbell rang at our house and as I walked towards the door my heart started beating faster.
You see, every day for what feels like forever I’ve been watching for our book to get here. THE book. The one that I worked on for a whole year and that I had yet to hold in my hands.
Last weekend found us at one of our favorite little local markets. We were a family on a mission.
An apple cider doughnut mission. There are other places in town that make apple cider doughnuts. But no one makes them like this place.
Hello and welcome friends! I’m so happy to have you here. My door is open and I’d love for you to come inside and take a look around because fall has definitely arrived at our home.
Do you ever wonder where those “vintage” items we all love so much come from? Who owned them before us? For instance, my new (to me) tool box?
