5 Simple Ways to Bring Fall Into Your Home

It *might* be starting to feel a like Fall around here a little bit, according to the weather guy, we will be below the triple digits after this weekend! Looks like I will have to wait until late November for those crisp mornings. Even though it is still blazing hot out here I am in the mood to decorate for Fall. Halloween is just a month away and then my favorite: Thanksgiving!

However, all of my Fall decor is still snuggly packed away somewhere so I decided to find my inspiration on where else, but Pinterest. Here’s some very simple ways to add timeless Autumn flair to your decor that will make you want to grab the flannel blanket and curl up with a bowl of hearty soup, even if you still have the air conditioner on….sigh.

New Normals


Trying to get things back to some sort of routine in the new house but finding lots of new normals for us.

  • New out-the-door-in-the-morning times, now that the kids are taking the bus.
  • Trying to figure out where everything will go in it’s new place.
  • Trying to remember where we put everything away at in it’s new place.
  • Trying to get used to all the white around here. Paint coming soon. Very soon.
  • Trying not to be too overwhelmed with the thought of cleaning all this square footage.
  • New grocery stores, Safeway, I missed you.
  • New shopping. Oh, the shopping: here, here and here!
  • A Cost Plus World Market. Finally!
  • A new list of projects already growing for a brand new house – that’s how we roll!
  • Being able to see family every week that used to be a world away.
  • New memories already being created.
