Hello there! We have been enjoying some lovely mild and sunny weather here near the east coast which is so nice after the hard rain we had last week. The sweet fall air is slowly blowing in and I’m diggin’ it. Yes, I’ll take a week or two of crisp sunny days, oh say around 75 degrees or so, with a light northern breeze. Pretty please Al Roker! Grin! I tend to drag a bit when it comes to changing out the seasonal decor around the cottage. I’m that neighbor who keeps the Christmas decorations up to the brink of being tacky — I just love those white twinkle lights. So how about fall?
Well, I’m not big on fall decorations. I’m not sure why, but I guess it’s mostly because of the traditional colors with the oranges, rusts, and browns. You all know how much I just love blues and whites and I ‘m not sure if they play all that well together with the fall color pallette. I picked up this rust colored mercury glass pumpkin a few seasons ago at Target. Last year it was my one and only indoor fall decor addition. But something happened when I pulled it out this year…
I really like it, I mean really! The rich rust with the blue is so pretty and I love the contrast! I’m thinking I’ll be adding more of this warm earthy color here and there. My honey will be happy since orange is one of his all time favorite colors. It’s earthy and rich and really warming things up in here. I’m ready to cozy up in my jammies with a cup!
And what about Miss Paisley? My poor little puppy has been under the weather for a few days, but I’m happy to report she is on the mend and feeling fine! I am willing to bet that fall is Paisley’s favorite season. Or it could just be any season that the windows go up to let in the fresh breeze, and even better the sounds of life swooshing by. She is quite amused with the sounds of the joggers, the mail lady, the lucky dogs walking by on their leads, and even happier to give a lively response! Yes Paisley, they hear you girl and they know you’re in here!
