Happy fall, y’all! I hope you had a super week!
We had our first cold week here in Wisconsin. It’s cold here…
But it’s also B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L.
This is what I see on my way home every day.
Uh huh, you can be jealous now.
Of course, this is our inspiration – we want to bring this beauty into our homes.
But first, let’s talk texture.
What do glass, wax and vegetables have in common?
Well, nothing until you bring them all together into a sweet little tablescape.
What do you put on top of a candlestick?
A Pumpkin, of course!
Mix your textures. Put soft with hard, bumpy with smooth, round with square…OK, that’s not a texture, but you get my drift.
Get creative. Use what you already have on hand. Go outside and see what free stuff you can use to beautify your home.
Then put it all together using different colors, textures, and shapes.
Look at it from all angles. Move it around, mix and match until you see what you like.
Notice I didn’t say “until you match the criteria of what makes a good display according to that Martha lady.”
My DH thinks I’m silly for putting so much work into my decor. But oh well. It makes me happy.
Catch ‘ya tomorrow!
