autumn. the most magical time of year.
usually sometime around august, i start getting antsy with the anticipation of unpacking my 'autumn box'. it even has an autumn scent, somehow. and i love filling our nest with rich colors, leaves, pine cones, and pumpkins.
this ribbon banner holds a very special place in my heart. (you have to scroll down a ways!)
last year i hung it here.
most of my autumn things have accumulated over a long period of time. a lot of them have been thrifted, or purchased at the dollar store in college. this year, i took only the most special pieces out of the autumn box, and donated the rest. sometimes, a girl needs a little change in her life! i'm ready for less clutter. and with the clutter i keep, i'm ready for each piece to hold meaning.
this compass belonged to my hubby's grandfather. love. this.
the beautiful gold leaf was a wedding gift from my dear friend megan.
wedding leaves hanging in the kitchen window, in all of their sparkly goodness. :)
welcome, autumn! i'm so glad you're here.
