This past Monday, I was tired. My computer stopped working. We had a really busy weekend. And my house was messy from our busy weekend. But pregnant me, instead of sitting on my couch while my little one napped in the late afternoon, I decided to clean, organize and decorate for fall. Sure. Why not?
I found this cute free printable over at the blog, "it is what it is".
Lentils in a jar, a faux wood candle holder and a cute picture of my little boy change the summer looking shelf into something a little warmer.
An easy way to decorate for fall is with leaves. Now, these are fake (until I have time to get out and get some real ones), but putting leaves in a clear vase is simple and colourful.
The other bookcase just got a clean up and a simple white jar with a (again fake...for now) sprig of leaves.
After I was done, I then put my feet up and spent the evening relaxing and playing with Gavin. When my home is tidy and a looking at least a little organized, I feel like I can really relax and feel rested. Plus, I really love fall, so breaking out the small pumpkins and leaves was fun for me. :)
Up next: the fireplace mantle. Nothing too fancy, but just a little change for the season.
What about you? Do you do a little cozying up your home for the fall season? Anyone else love the mini pumpkins?
