Here’s a few photos I shared on my Instagram account, just in case you missed them.
A large tree died in our yard, I was so bummed so see it go, but before the landscaper hauled it away, he left me with some tree stumps and slices. I plan on removing the bark from the stump to bring it inside to use as an end table. I just hope I can complete the project within a year! It’s been a bit busy around here.
For Fall Break, our kids get 2 weeks vacation. It’s a beautiful time of year around other parts of the country, in Arizona, it’s still in the high 90’s, so this year we went to San Francisco to escape the heat. We toured Alcatraz, ate our way through the city, Fisherman’s Wharf and Napa and it was fabulous! The weather was awesome!
In my previous blog post, I showed this photo with a bundle of cotton in this huge wooden bowl, which also goes by the title, My Favorite Goodwill Find. I have this on bowl on display all-year-round. I can’t bear the thought of putting it away in a closet. It’s perfect for any season! Hand carved and unique for only $14.99!
My kitchen table decor goes through tabletop changes depending on my mood. Some weeks it changes two or more times, other times it will stay in a holding pattern for a couple of weeks. This tablescape hasn’t changed for a few weeks, either I’ve been too busy to change it or I actually enjoy the fall hues. Without over thinking it, it’s the hues of fall that makes it stay. The little velvet acorns came from Safeway and I adore them.
This last photo I shared was from my closet. I bought this chair from Goodwill for $7.99 many years ago. The wood was dark brown and the fabric was a light gold. I finally decided to give it a bright new update. I painted the wood with white chalk paint and for the fabric I went with gray chalk paint. It was a very simple project to complete and with a light sanding on the fabric, after the paint dried, the results were a soft velvet. It now sits in my closet and I must say I log a good amount of time sitting in the chair sifting through Pinterest and other social media!
Here’s some more fall decor in my home. It’s going to be 99 degrees tomorrow so when you live in Arizona you have to bring the fall outdoors in, the outdoors being from other parts of the country. Everything is faux but it’s the reality I live in!
P.S. Yes, that’s a price sticker on that vintage book from Goodwill. Just in case you are wondering!
Until next time,
