It's Time...

Up until two days ago, I was fine with putting off decorating for Fall just a bit longer. Our Summer was fun and crazy busy and a little too short for some of us up here in the Pacific Northwest.

The past few days have given us quite a bit of rain, the kids are all back in school, orange mums are blooming in the garden, and Pumpkin Spice Lattes have returned.
(YAY!)


But despite all of that, I was still going to hold off on Fall.

Until I saw this...


M-hmmm. I know. It's perfection.

So, thanks to Michelle, my fall decorating has now begun.


What about you?
Are you settling into Fall or hanging onto Summer while you can?

No No No! It's not time yet! We only had about a month of summer and, even though it's raining now, I'm sure we're going to have sun popping out anytime! (please oh please!)

As much as I love that picture, I am so not done with summer - I feel like we got majorly jipped this year!

I love Fall and wish it would feel more like it here in FL but it doesn't. So, I'm holding off just a bit. That mantel is so pretty!!

I am not quite ready yet--I have put a few fallish flowers out...but that is it. I need some non-ninety degree weather first!

I'm hanging onto summer for a bit longer... September is my favorite month because the weather is still lovely without the cold... but the temperatures dip in the morning and warm up again by noon... love that.
xo,

My husband keeps saying it's too early for fall decorations, but I am soooo ready!

Kristi said...

Well, it's still in the 90's here so it's not very Fall-ish at all. I've seen a few spots of color in some of the trees AND I've had a couple Pumpkin Spice lattes too. Add that to all of the Fall projects being posted in blog world and it's gotten me in the decorating mood!

Beautiful...I am trying to hold off a bit longer for fall decor....it is so hard to do...especially when I see how lovely your home is...

Jemsmom said...

I am starting to fill the itch, but it is still in the 90's here! I just can't do it yet!!! I want to though and Michelle's post did just make my heart go pitter patter! That mantle is yummy!

Janell @ Isabella and Max said...

If there is any summer to hang onto I am...but it seems to have faded. Now I'm thinking about warm clothes, to stay warm...THEN I can think about fall decor. That mantel is really charming! Janell

Summer my friend...it's supposed to be in the 80s all weekend and into next week...fall keeps trying to sneak in, but the warmth keeps pushing it away. I can never decorate for fall until October...not when we are still hitting the spray pads:)

Natalie @ Blossoming Visions said...

I'm ready for the fall and always want it a little early due to this unbearable heat here in Vegas. That mantle setup is just gorgeous. Yay for inspiration!

Rach said...

So pretty. Motivates me to pull out my fall decor!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

That banner is perfection!!!!

Jenny said...

That really IS perfection! I'm gonna start fall decorating this weekend, as it's already totally fall here.

Just come across your blog..love it and as we are about to decorate the lounge loving the inspiration and the low cost wood panelling..l've seen it in several homes across the water finally got my OH to agree to have a go just one wall behind the fireplace for now hehe...l'm sure l'll persuade him it looks fabulous in one or two other spots too...thanks for helping to change his mind xx

I am so ready for fall. It is still so hot here. But as I pull homemade banana bread out of the oven, I am hoping that the weather will take the hint and send me a cold front a little early.

i love this arrangement, especially the mirror with the two vases at each end. it perfectly sized and not overwhelming for that space. i may just have to recreate it :)
