Fall Back

I’m always a wee bit sad to see summer come to an end, but the good news is that fall is amazing!

Once I jump into something, I’m in wholeheartedly.

So I’ve been sipping this, and baking this, and I just got my front porch set for the season (the inside decor is next, though I’m ready to go with my garland).

I’m really excited about the addition of the milk jug to my porch this year. It began its life on my great-grandparents’ farm in Pennsylvania. After languishing in my parents’ garage for the last few years, it’s been rescued and now sits proudly in its new home.

The vintage bottle crate (purchased at my favorite local vintage shop) was an after thought – I needed just a bit more height because real pumpkins aren’t available here just yet. Soon, I’ll add those to the mix, but I’m loving how it turned out so far.

Have you decorated for fall yet?

  • You guys. I told you yesterday how crazy this weekend was. But seriously – I am sooo glad that I went through with my plan to surprise my husband with a master bedroom makeover. You see – we always hire out our painting work (mostly because my husband is a perfectionist, and he doesn’t want… [Continue Reading]

    Master Bedroom Makeover With Just $125!
  • This weekend was a whirlwind! My husband headed out of town on business on Thursday, and extended his stay until Sunday evening to stay with his uncle. Meanwhile, the kids had more activities schedule during those four days than you can shake a stick at (what does that phrase even mean?!). It seemed that just… [Continue Reading]

    Deep Sigh of Relief
  • I just got back from vacation (and have seriously been researching cheap flights – without luck – to leave again because it’s so stinking cold here!). Tammy’s headed out in a few weeks to a warm destination. So we both have the tropics on our minds. We thought we’d put together a handy little vacation… [Continue Reading]

    Wild About Vacation Style
  • My 12 year old was over at a friend’s house last weekend. While most of the time I’m arresting her phone and entering it into our family phone-jail, this time was different. I am proud to say she wasn’t glued to her phone… this time, she was glued to a newspaper! What? Yes. Adaline and… [Continue Reading]

    Kids are So Creative!
  • As I mentioned last week {here}, we were invited to the Twin Cities Oscar Experience 2015. It proved to be a fabulous soirée with food, Hollywood fashion and most importantly… giving back to the community! All proceeds are split between non-profits, Twin Cities Film Fest and Aegis Foundation. Cate was unable to attend at the last minute… [Continue Reading]

  1. I’ve done nothing. And this is SO inspiring! Just gorgeous Cate.
    Your home is so fabulous.

  2. I love this! How cool that you have for grandpa’s old milk jug. It works perfectly on the porch! I am now inspired to fall-ify my house.

  3. We have two pumpkins that happened to grow in our yard sitting on our driveway now…but that’s it as far as seasonal decorating–probably until Christmas!

  4. I just picked up a vintage wire yard rake and some dried florals to make an arrangement for the front door. I am getting in the mood to pull out my fall items but have been taking my time, like you…..it’s hard to say goodbye to Summer.

  5. Yes! Finally something about affiliate.
