Let’s Pretend It’s Autumn!

Sure, it was 102 again today. But today was the day Anita and I rewarded ourselves for all the garage cleaning and wine room construction. Yes, we went to Pier 1 to check out the fall decor.

Wait!

I forgot to share last week that Anita got a special accent for the wine room, a beautiful Tiffany-style lamp she found on Overstock.com. She also got a few wine books. Fancy.

Back to Seasonal stuff

Isn’t this post riveting so far? I’m pretty dulle when not ranting.

Anyway, we knew we wanted to get a couple more of the glass pumpkins Pier 1 does every year. Other than that Anita had her eye on an acorn made out of leaves, and I wanted a calm autumn wreath.

This one will join others in the wall shelving.

I can go nuts in that place, so I was very proud to go through the whole place and only picked up a few more items, like the autumnal balls and glass candle holder for the mantel.

The candle holder is a pretty gold in good light.

All I needed was one bowl, a fake pumpkin, and some “scatter” objects to turn the dining table from summer to fall. My birds just get to stay.

I’m also recycling the leaf may under the bowl.

Anita’s acorn joined the giant bird on the coffee table, and yum, we got a candle that smells like mint and rosemary.

Bird approves.

I like this wreath, too. It’s simple but seasonal. I’ve been known to go overboard but I think I did okay. And 20% off.

Now I’m happy with my decor for the season. Little things mean a lot, and getting a few seasonal objects may be a superficial thing, but we can treat ourselves every so often.

Back to spending evenings sweating in the garage and being thrifty!
