Well. It has become crystal clear to me lately (as our summer ceases to cease) that I’m going to have to create my own Fall if I want to enjoy this beloved season. Fall isn’t happening outside in my neck of the woods so I’m going to make it happen inside. Starting with the console table!
Speaking of a pop of color, aren’t the coral roses beautiful!? Perfect addition to go with the rest of the coral in this room. I picked them up at the grocery store for 10 bucks. Kenny came home from work a few nights ago and I told him “you bought me roses today because you’re nice like that. Thank you! They’re beautiful and I love them.”
Sometimes we just have to take matters into our own hands. :)
The branch is from a tree in my area. I have to tell you my story. I get home with several branches I’ve cut and I find “the one” and I’m pruning it to go in my vase. I’m having quite the Martha Stewart moment feeling so impressed with myself for “bringing the outdoors in” when all of the sudden a HUGE green spider comes crawling off of the branch and onto my arm! I seriously screamed so loud! Scared me to death. The girls came running and saw the spider and they screamed too. I grabbed a napkin and killed that sucker so fast and then looked around at the total mess I’d made with dirt and branches all over my kitchen and had to laugh.
Martha moment was sweet while it lasted.
But now that it’s all behind me I have to say that I love my branch. Worth the near heart attack? I do believe so.
Now this table is such a happy spot when you come around the corner and into the family room. Having a bit of real decor in the house is making me excited to add more. This is such a fun time of year to nest. Are you a nester? I could stay inside my house all day long nesting. Organizing, decorating, cleaning. Ok.. maybe not the cleaning. But definitely the organizing and decorating. Too bad other things (like life) get in the way. :)
