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?

Here’s the thing.  I pride myself in being able… [Continue Reading]

  • I have such a hard time dressing for this season. Our weather here is chilly in the morning, as hot as 80 midday, and cools back down in the evening. When you’re out and about all day, (or busy opening a retail shop!!!) there’s no time to change. My solution is the t-shirt dress and… [Continue Reading]

  • Bobbi Jo Fischer says that the best part of her job is seeing “afters.” And she must see a lot of good ones, because she is an independent rep for Nerium, creator of the amazing Night Cream (Nerium AD). Bobbi Jo offered Tammy and I the opportunity to try this incredible product for a month.… [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.
