which means there’s not an excuse for me to keep things the same every year.
I wouldn’t want to anyway. A little change keeps things exciting around here!
Around the middle of August, I start letting myself think about my pumpkin spice candles.
I know some of you think I’m crazy, but follow my thought process…
My kids start school at the beginning of August, and the start of school always means fall to me.
Remember when we used to start school long after labor day?
You’ll be happy to know my candles are officially lit.
Not only that, but I’ve started gathering ideas for my mantle this year.
Remember when I showed you that extra large piece of art we bought locally to go above the mantle?
It’s not exactly the kind of art I want to take down for the holidays, or at least not for fall decorating.
So, I’m on the hunt to add things to the mantle that won’t take away from the art that we love so much.
I thought I’d show you some of the inspiration I found today…
So many great ideas, right?
All these clever people have created beautiful fall mantles with simple touches of fall.
These lovely ladies are holding their annual fall linky parties, and these parties help me get my act together.
Mark your calendars with me, and we’ll ease into fallifying our homes together this year!
