Seattle is beautiful in the fall. The leaves are beginning to change color and the air feels cool and crisp. I especially notice the change in the morning when I'm out walking my English Springers (the girls!) Before you know it, I'll be wearing gloves and a coat again!
Making subtle changes in my home at the beginning of each season is so fun! Today I removed my white flowers and replaced them with antique hydrangeas. Have you seen these at your local florist?
|My color palette is neutral. Adding a pop of color here and there makes it so easy to change the feel of a room. A green topiary will be perfect sitting next to these hydrangeas! These are easy to dry and store for the following year.|
While we are on the subject of fall.. today I am visiting my friend Tina over at The Enchanted Home for the start of her "a perfect fall day" series. I met Tina about a year ago (before starting my own blog) while she was building her dream home. I fell in love with her sense of style and home decor. She doesn't know this.. but my very first blog comment was on HER blog :) Also a fan of french decor, silver and blue and white porcelain, I was so excited when she opened her on-line store If you haven't visited.. head over!
Moving on.. I believe a good sense of humor is really important in life. That said, in honor of my birthday last week my friends offered up their best in funny cards. Here are a couple of my favorites..

I am looking for a fall bag.. can't decide what style and color to get. What do you think of this one?
Also wanted to thank all of you that left a comment on my last post ONE UP .. I appreciate your honesty and all of your perspectives on what I consider to be an important topic for discussion.
Have a great week ahead!
