Tuesday Thrift ... #autumn


Happy first day of Autumn!!!  

Hopefully you are feeling the lack of humidity in the air and the mornings are greeting you with a crisp, happiness!  We are just beginning to see a drop in temperatures and I am loving the newness of the fall season.  As a Florida girl, I am always so sad to see summer leave and then when fall arrives, I am always so surprised and how much I enjoy the change!

I am in the process of adding some fall touches to our house this week.  For me that means making the house feel warm and cozy for the upcoming months.  Fall for us means soups and stews, family time, snuggles by the fire and long evenings chatting over red wine!  My first fall experience here in October of 1994 I remember investing in jackets, throws and a crock pot.  Coming from Florida I didn't need any of these items and it was so fun to shop for my new home in a brand new state.  Well, exciting and scary too ... I mean I was living in a state I knew nothing about with not one single friend to call my own.   But here we are 20 years later feeling nothing short of true southerners!

This year I am using my blue and white collection as the backdrop for decoration.  I absolutely love the mixture of all my thrifted blue and white with the rich yellows, oranges, greens and browns.  

Here is my inspiration ...







Don't you love?  I absolutely am over the moon with the mixture of blue and white with all the colors of fall.  It allows me to leave so much of the items we have out every day and yet spice them up for the season!

I will be back tomorrow to share our decorated home as part of a blog hop my friends and I have coordinated!  I think of it as being invited in for coffee or wine and getting to see all they have done to prepare for the season.  These are just a sampling of my amazing blog friends and I know you will adore them all!  Each of them inspires me in one way or another, to be more fancy, to step out of my box, to stay true to my roots, to live with more color ... and so much more. 

I hope you will join us ... 


Our blog hop starts tomorrow ... see you back here!
