backyard inspiration

Every afternoon, I find myself outside searching for inspiration.
And lately, I have found it at our woodpile.  
The leaves nearby are spectacular!
The wood has such beautiful textures.
This time of year, I start noticing the evergreen trees a little more.
And I always find myself photographing that wheelbarrow:)
  Who doesn't adore sweet little pinecones?
What's inspiring you lately??

fall decorating

Lately, I have been decorating the house for fall.  
I love changing out colors and textures.
All those reds, oranges, and ochres are so lovely to see!
Last year, I thrifted a few Amber Hobnail glass pieces and 
decided to use them this fall season.

 This piece is beautiful all alone...
But even better with hydrangeas from our yard.
I love bringing the outdoors in!
Below, I used an Amber Hobnail serving tray with a few milk glass pieces.
I think it looks quite festive!
 How are you decorating for fall?

those. red. leaves.

The leaves have been incredibly beautiful this year.  
I especially love the hydrangea leaves in our backyard.
Those vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows are just amazing!
 I was out thrifting the other day and found this green jar for $3.
It's about 12 inches tall, and I knew exactly what I wanted to put in it:)
Those. Red. Leaves.
I think it's super pretty on our back porch:)

 We are loving fall around here!
 Hope you are, too!

Happy Anniversary!

 20 years ago, I said "I do"
to the most amazing man,
the most patient man
the kindest man,
the most inspiring man
that I know.

I love you John Barnes…
hoping for many, many more anniversaries!
