This past week, I've woken up to beautiful clear skies, temperatures in the 50's, and a family of deer in the yard - every day. It had this strange "Christmas" feel to it, but that's probably because 50 is cold for where I'm from - I was confusing early fall for the dead of a Fort Lauderdale winter.
I'm so excited for the leaves to start turning, to bust out pumpkin flavored everything, and for the first time ever - have a few fall decorations.
This might surprise you, but I'm not much of a "seasonal" decorator. I've never gotten terribly excited about pulling out orangey leaves in November or pastel eggs in the Spring, just to put them away in a couple weeks. Christmas has consistently been my one and only holiday to decorate for - and even then, I have kept it limited to my tree and some lights and garland.
But that's all going to change this year.
Now that I'm actually experiencing "seasons", I'm getting the itch to decorate for them. I'm going to start simple...with a wreath. Yes, another decor item I have never had.
Here are a few I've got my eye on to buy (I'd say make, but I can't think about that right now...)
I love love love this simple grapevine wreath with cute felt flowers by ItzFitz
Also by ItzFitz, a yarn wreath with the same cute flowers
I love these fabric leaves by Jane Joss
Super cute DIY burlap wreath found on Craftaholics Anonymous
Speaking of burlap...this wreath by The Walnut Street House
But my favorite has to be this wreath by The Creative Gypsy. I love the combination of textures...lace, felt, and burlap all in one.
I'll do my best to get a wreath up soon - if you don't see my post about it, please harass me to do it. I need accountability people!
Happy Thursday...and happy almost Fall!
