Every year I put out less and less seasonal decor. I think it is the season of life we are in because there is just no time. Maybe one day I'll go all out like I used to. But I do like to make it festive for Westin (and me.) :)
I had a brilliant idea the other day. Why not pick up those pretty leaves in our front yard and make a garland?! I spent a few minutes taping them onto some twine and hung it up on the fireplace. I was so happy with it and even showed it off to Cody asking him how cute it was. :)
Um, that brilliant idea should have been thought out a little. I totally forgot about the fact that those leaves would dry out and curl up and turn brown. In one day. Duh! So plan B. Use fake leaves I already have.
Maybe not as natural looking but I still like it. Live and learn!

I got this old laundry basket from Antique Farmhouse. I have always wanted one and every time I saw one in a flea market it would always say "not for sale." I haven't done anything with it yet but I hope to make a liner (or hire someone to do that! :) ) and use it for actual laundry or toys. Not sure yet.
Up next, the fall kitchen!
