Happy Monday everyone. I’m taking a breath today and just sharing whatever pops into my brain. Scary thought you say? Hmmmm, maybe!
I’m a week late in sharing this, but my cousin from Arizona rocks! She came to Seattle and walked the Susan G. Komen 60 miles in 3 days. And it wasn’t easy. The route around Seattle and to the Eastside involved many hills vs. the flat terrain of Phoenix. Love you cuz!
I don’t think we could of asked for a nicer summer her in the Northwest. I mean 53 days of sunshine and no rain is almost unheard of. But I think mother nature is paying us back.
It has been pouring and I’m sad to say the outdoor furniture is all stored away until next spring.
I was able to take a few good pictures of the dahlias before the rain literally took the plants to the ground.
Fall means football and our Seattle Seahawks and Washington Huskies are kickin butt! Our neighbor is a high school senior and were having fun just attending his games as well.
LOVE THY PAINT CHIP…
Every time I walk into Home Depot, Ace, Lowes, basically anywhere they sell paint I grab a few paint chips and shove them in my purse. My latest are in a range of beautiful Fall colors.
I put the rest of the Fall decorations up this weekend. I’ll share later this week. What about you, do you decorate for Fall or Halloween or both? Happy Monday everyone!
Hello All! I’ve been so focused on my 31 Days To Clutter Free Series that I’ve not had much chance to share much else. Before Halloween gets past us I wanted to share some bookmarks I made. They were quick to make and fun to give my nieces and sis-in-law when we had lunch a few weekends ago.
What do you do with all those paint chips you have stored away?
If you have the larger chips like those in the picture grab those, some scrapbook paper, glue, ribbon, buttons, and stickers and here’s what you get.
These aren’t really fallish, but I made them also.
Here’s the front and back sides of a few of the bookmarks.
It makes it so much more fun to cozy up with a book on a fall day when you have a fun bookmark to use!

The weather has changed in the Northwest quickly in the last couple of days. I think our surge of 80 degree days are gone, we’re bypassing the 70’s and were in the 60’s. It’s got me thinking about the upcoming FALL Y’All linky party being sponsored by:
Layla @ the Lettered Cottage
Rhoda @ southern hospitality
Kate @ centsational girl and
Sarah @ thrifty decor chick
I’ve been scouring Pinterest for ideas and here’s just a few I came up with that even I can do! 🙂
Create a leaf lantern by putting leaves in a jar, plus some Modge Podge and tiny tea lights. Inside or outside, it would look awesome! Original idea from 5 orange potatoes.
Yum Yum! Fall snackies, perfect for a football game get together.
Now lets get down to some simple easy decorating thought…
If you need an invitation to join Pinterest just send me an e-mail and I’ll be happy to provide.
So tell me, what kind of Fall decorating thoughts do you have?
P.S – I promised you a project update for the spare room project today, but it will be tomorrow instead. C’ya!
