Treat Yourself to a Day at Terrain

0916_ab_banner_wp_raindateThere is no better place in this area to get inspired for whatever season we’re in than Terrain.

Due to rain last weekend, they are holding their Autumn Bounty Festival this Saturday, 12pm-5pm. There will be tastings, both sweet and savory, crafts for the kids and a signing with Sweet Paul magazine’s, Paul Lowe.

Here’s a little preview of what awaits you!img_0377 img_0378 img_0379 img_0380 img_0382 img_0383 img_0384 img_0385 img_0388 img_0389 img_0391 img_0393 img_0395 img_0397 img_0399 img_0400Autumn Bounty in spades…if only my car was big enough to bring it all home! Don’t forget to eat at their amazing cafe!


Outdoor Decor for Fall

dsc_0240When the season changes, I enjoy changing my outdoor decor to reflect that. Each year it is a slight variation, but over time, I have found things that seem to work for my home. I’ve learned, for example, that my ferns  and ivy will last long into November, so I leave them. Pumpkins and cabbage replace seasonal summer blooms and we’re done.

Here’s a look at this year’s Fall decor, beautifully executed by the team at Gardens!dsc_0243 dsc_0244 img_0305 img_0279 img_0281dsc_0236 dsc_0237 img_0282 img_0285 img_0287dsc_0242 img_0288 img_0292And, what would a seasonal photo be without my girl, Molly?!

Whether you add a single pumpkin or a couple of mums, welcome the new season so it can greet you every time you come home!


Easy Fall Decor

101840968-jpg-rendition-largestWe’re officially into Fall….YAY!! As the leaves change colors and the piles of pumpkins appear all over town, it makes us feel ready to decorate our homes in a similar fashion. This is actually a season that makes it easy to decorate, as nature provides everything we need. Pumpkins, gourds, mums, leaves…and I like it when you mix these items in with whatever you already have on hand.

Here is a little of the fall decor that has me inspired to get started!
