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?

  • I’m so sorry for these pics! Seriously. I’m sad you aren’t seeing photos of white powdery sand and ocean blown palm trees.

    Easter Style
  • Most Mondays, you can find me at my children’s school, volunteering for kindergarten reading. There’s usually some instruction that goes along with whatever I’m to do that day. Something specific I’m supposed to do with the groups that come out into the hall with me. But the other day, the teacher couldn’t remember how to… [Continue Reading]

    Kapow!
  • It’s Friday – hurrah! Re-entry into regular life after spring break is always tough, and it makes for a long week. Tammy is back from the Dominican Republic, and me? Well, I stayed here – but I did manage to have a little fun during our week off of school. And we’re both back with… [Continue Reading]

    Wild About What’s New
  • Whenever there’s a holiday, you can be sure we’re incorporating food into it in a big way. One of our morning favorites is a baked French toast casserole. It’s perfect for Easter brunch, or Christmas morning (or pretty much any day that you’re craving a delicious breakfast). Over the years, we’ve adapted and tweaked an… [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.
