While I've been worried about not being in love with the Pumpkin Spice Latte like I'm supposed to, I did see that they just released a new fall drink. The Chile Mocha. I might need to try one of those. They sound like the Mexican Hot Chocolate that I used to drink in San Francisco, only the Chile Mocha also has coffee in it. Incidentally, while drinking Mexican Hot Chocolate at The Canvas in San Francisco, I learned that the film that forms on the top of fresh hot chocolate and other heated dairy products, it is called a "ploika" in yiddish. The end.
Back on track.... Fall. Of course being the fall maniac that I am, you'd better believe that I had my house plastered both inside and out with autumn decorations on
Here is some of what it looks like. Don't judge. (Not that you ever do.) I just couldn't help myself!!!
A tip that my Mother gave me: If you can't change out your rug at the moment, and it doesn't exactly go with the look that you're trying to create, just ignore it! Pretend the rug is a neutral and just do what you want! That is why I have orange fall cushions and a bright red rug. Just be like: "WHATEVER!"
Excuse me, your slipcover is showing!
Noah was not as enthusiastic as I was about fall decorating.
I fully realize that with the fall bathroom I kind of crossed a line. This room is a bit...out of control and corny. Ha! Pun intended. But I couldn't help myself and Noah loves it, so WHY NOT?
Why the "H" not?
This is why not. Because you can end up doing this. On the back of your toilet...
Don't tell anyone.
Did I make up for the bathroom with this "elegant vignette?"
But LOOK how RESTRAINED I was in the family room. Nary a decoration in sight.
Thank you Mom, for giving me your couch. And thank you couch for having a slipcover that is PERFECT for the fall and winter, that covers up your 1992 yellow floral chintz that is PERFECT for for spring and summer. Winning.
Jon is not fazed by the decorations. He is a real man.
One day I spent HOURS and HOURS making these paper and marker decorations for the windows.
And I made this faux apple wreath! I love it and had so much fun. I was inspired by The Wood Grain Cottage. All you need is a foam wreath frame, some burlap, a hot glue gun and a bunch of fake apples. Voila.
Happy fall y'all!!!!
